P90X2 X2 Recovery + Mobility Preview

The last of our P90X2 workout previews is X2 Recovery and Mobility.  This is taking the place of Stretch X from P90X.  This workout will be a lot shorter and will incorporate a Foam Roller.   Foam Rolling was something that I wasn’t that aware of until my P90X2 rehearsals.  It is something that I absolutely loved because it instantly relieve pressure in my muscles and didn’t where them out in the process.   You will see that P90X2 involves a lot more dynamic warm ups with foam rolling before each workout.

When you first start using a foam roller it hurts.  It’s like having a deep tissue message.  It targets the knots in your muscles and releases the tension.  It honstly is one of those sensations that “hurts good”…if that makes any sense.  After a couple of foam rolling sessions I felt looser and my muscle recovery increased.  I was so pleased with the results that I bought a foam roller right away and have been using one since.  I am really excited that Tony Horon and the crew has shared this idea with the world in P90X2 X2 Recovery and Mobility.

Here is a quick video of Tony talking about some of the benefits of foam rolling as well as some clips of how it works.

 

As you can see he uses a pretty extreme version of a foam roller but the more you do it the better it feels to have a harder surface to press on.  It’s amazing how you can do so much with just your body weight.

Have you ever used a foam roller before?  What do you think about it?
