P90X2 Workout Preview: Plyocide

The second preview that I wanted to show everyone from P90X2 is the workout Plyocide. Plyocide is the successor to Plyometics from P90X. In the upcoming P90X2, Plyo is taken to the next level. There are added weight and different moves that are going to make you take your jumping to the next level. Just like with P90X2 Chest/Back and Balance, Plyocide adds some medicine balls to help with some explosive movements as well as lateral movements, which is meant to improve agility and vertical.

One thing that is different about Plyocide vs Plyometics is the addition of more than just jumping exercises. Plyo pushups, side to side exercises and agility drills are also added to the mix. I have a hard time calling this a cardio workout because there is so much more to it than just getting your heart rate up.

Check out the video of the P90X2 Plyocide crew getting all of what Plyocide has to offer.   As Carl Daikeler says “This one is going to kill people”…

 

 

I was able to do an almost final version of this workout during the pre-rehearsals and it was brutal.  In the video you can see one of the moves where you hold a medicine ball and do a squat jump as high as you can.  You can also see a agility move where you are going around touching a med ball as fast as you can with our feet while rotating around it.  It like moves like this because it takes focus on concentration.  Two things that you will need a lot of in P90X2.

Once again I am excited to try the true version of Plyocide when P90X2 comes out later this year.  For more info check back this week.  I will keep posting previews for P90X2.

What do you think of Plyocide so far?  Think you will be able to handle it?

What is the length of time for each workout in P90X2? I loved P90X and did do it all the way through once, but when I started over I just have done half a workout at a time because the time commitment was just too much.

Is P90X2 the same as P90X MC2?

Please learn when to use "then" and when to use "than." It will keep your intelligent readers from getting really annoyed.

LOVE the 1 on 1. Totally varied workout with lots of movement and variety and explosiveness. And from what you mention and what I've heard, the P90X2 version is even better.

I do the P90X One-on-One Plyocide and enjoy it. Can't wait for P90X2!

@Scott: They are between 45-55 mins with Yoga being 60 mins this time instead of 90 min. They are saying that the workouts are definitely a little shorter.

@Barb: It depends on who you talk to. P90X2 was originally named P90X: MC2 but people also refer to the P90X: One on One Vol 3s as P90X:MC2 as well...did I just confuse you more?

@Lucas: Haha, I changed it for just for you Lucas. I am certainly not above criticism, but I would love to hear your opinion of the workout.

@Matt: I enjoy that one too but the P90X2 one is a lot better. You will love it.
