These are just a few of the highlighted differences between P90X and P90X2. We are sure that there are many other differences between each program. More than likely the nutrition guide as well as the exercise guide is going to be completely revamped. Although P90X2 looks like it will offer some kind of version requiring very little in the way of accessories for travelers, we can expect the normal version to use many of the same pieces of equipment that was used for the original program.
If you have never experienced P90X before and are toying with the idea but don’t know where to begin, we STRONGLY encourage you to start with the original 90 day program P90X before jumping into P90X2. Part 2 is built upon the experience and physical stamina you would have gained through the first program.
P90X2 is also designed with the “Grad” in mind or in other words the person who successfully maintained at least a 90 days of continuous P90X usage. Many “Grads” have gone through the original program several times and are primed for phase two.
Whether you’re a “grad” or not, the good news is there’s something for everyone. P90X for those that have heard of this amazing 90 day total body transformation series and want to see dramatic changes happen to their body and P90X 2, for those that need that little something extra to take their workouts to the next level.
