Over the past few weeks, Beachbody has been updating their P90X2 videos on youtube. If you have been following my blog here on getrippedathome.com then you might have already seen most of the P90X2 Previews that I took from the 2011 Coach Summit. As you know, I am a P90x2 cast member for 2 of the workouts…Chest Back and Balance, and V-Sculpt. Both workouts are strength/resistance workouts that most likely be put into the schedule during the Strength Phase of the P90X2 calender. It will definitely be a phase that I will spend the most time in since you can now choose between 3-6 weeks to spend in that phase.
These workouts were both a blast to do and even more fun to film with the man himself, Tony Horton. Being on set for P90X2 was an outer body experience to say the least. Below are the two preview videos that Beachbody has put on YouTube. As you will see, Chest/Back and Balance is P90X Chest/Back taken up a notch. You will now be doing totally different pull up moves, and push ups on medicine balls. This workout blasts me but has made my strength with both push ups and pull ups go through the roof. V-Sculpt is a Back/Bicep workout that has been put in the Advanced workouts kit, which is available through the Deluxe Kit and Ultimate Kit to pre-order now, BUT It will be available for pre-order separately later in September. It takes what you have learned in P90X2 foundation phase and applies it to getting the V shape that you have always wanted. Everything is done in a athletic position to help with functional and core strength. It’s amazing how much my fitness has improved since I have shot this video and incorporated it into my fitness schedule. I think you will see for yourself if you compare how I look in V-Sculpt to my Round 8 Results.
I also included the P90X2 Trailer at where you can see extra footage of me doing the “Around the World” Pull up amongst other pull up and push up moves.
Let me know what you think!
That 'round the world pull-up was pretty much the highlight of the P90X2 preview reel. Hopefully you stood up when the audience gasped and took your humble props.
This is going to be a blast. Im Xtremely geared up for the X2! I know it must have been surreal being apart of the third installment of a series that has affected so many people across this great nation. Keep up the great work man.
Do you need bands to do some of the V-Sculpt exercises or can they all be done with dumbells? I recently purchased the bowflex selecttech dumbells, because I was thinking that all the moves in P90X2 could be done with those...
