A great fitness system isn’t only about having the right workouts; it’s about doing them at the right time. After all, this program is based on muscle confusion—mixing up your workouts to keep your body guessing— obviously, the P90X2 schedule is as important as the workouts themselves. In order to get the best results from this program, you need to follow the schedule as outlined in the Fitness Guide. The schedule was laid out to give you optimal results, so take heed.
Greater Flexibility This Time Around
There are three phases in the P90X2 schedule, but there’s no hard and fast rule for how long each phase has to last. It’s completely up to you and your needs.
Phase 1: The Foundation
Phase 2: Strength
Phase 3: Performance
According to the Fitness Guide, you stay at each level until your body is prepared to move on. The Foundation (Phase 1) is designed to give you a strong fitness base. It will be “very challenging for many people and we recommend that you get pretty good at it before moving on.”
Phase 1 includes workouts like:
- X2 Core
- X2 Recovery and Mobility
- X2 Total Body
- X2 Yoga
- And more…
Like Phase 1, the length of Phase 2 is determined by you. You’re getting stronger here and your results will really start manifesting. The P90X2 schedule recommends you stick with this stage for 3 to 6 weeks and also cautions against staying on any one of the phases for more than six weeks.
Phase 3 is all about performance and you’ll see “explosive results” here. This phase only gets about 3 to 4 weeks on the P90X2 schedule because you don’t want to burn out or overtrain. You’ll incorporate the P.A.P. workouts at this stage as you get more athletic and your body more finely tuned.
Built into the P90X2 schedule for you to use as needed is the Recovery Week. We suggest you take a recovery week between phases to give your body a chance to restore itself. You won’t be lazing about during this week, however, as it’s filled with X2 Recovery and Mobility as well as X2 Yoga.
