I have only done 1 month of this (Phase 1) and I think Phase 1 is very core-intensive. None of the workouts have so far seemed as weight intensive and rather incorporate a lot more balance challenges which require core engagement. I like the regular p90x plyometrics more so far, but the new ab-ripper is pretty good and the yoga is an improvement as it is much more concise and still kicks my butt. I never liked Ken-po in the last series and thankfully that is gone. I hear that after phase 1 you get into more weight intensive exercises, but so far I have enjoyed the burpees and planks required from the workouts. I have also noticed that there are a lot less pull-ups required in p90x2 than were required in p90x. As for requiring all the equipment, I managed to find cheaper knock offs of the official versions on amazon and bought those, saving myself a lot of money and working basically just as well.

Tony seems a little less crazy in this workout series, which is both good and bad.

cons so far - requires a lot of equipment, difficult to lift heavy weights when trying to focus on balance, plyocide seems much easier than plyo x,

pros - its a change of pace from the watched-to-death videos of p90x and its always a good thing to mix things up.

I finished P90x which was the hardest thing ever for me even tho I was very fit. Than I went on P90x 1on1 with Tony which was hard but i did great on it. Now P90X2 is like monster version of P90X. Its so intense and hard and I see results each week. If you done P90x you know when it gets to week 9 you start getting bored from it because you keep doing the same DVD's but guess what X2 has different DVDs for each phase besides Yoga and Plyocide. Plyocide is like monster of all workout.I'm on my week 3 and my core is so much stronger and now I can get on my arms and hold my balance before 3 weeks I couldnt my next goal is to walk with my 2 hands.THIS IS FOR ELITE ATHLETES ONLY I REPEAT ONLY ELITE ATHLETES. They even say in don't buy this dvds if you havn't done p90x or any other beachbody program. I honestly love P90X2 more than P90x. They both will get you in amazing shape but this one is just crazy.

Update***

Beginning of week 6. Ohh man I'm an animal now,I been keeping clean diet most of the time. I see results every single day I wake up,I'm very inpatient but the results keep me happy and satisfied.Chest back and balance has couple of things that I still can't do the way I want to but I'm improving. I just love this program specially Strength phase.

I am finishing this series now, (last week of recovery). I did this after a 2 week recovery post p90x. I also run 3 days a week. That is my back ground. The summary of results: I lost an additional 17 lbs after losing about 20 lbs in p90x. My body fat % went from 17% to 13%. My waist went from a 34-36 to a solid 32. V shape, nice butt, I am very happy. Overall, it was a fun routine, different and worth the effort. My only criticism is that, in the second section of exercises, some of the strength exercises are kind of more circus side show than hard effort. An example is the push up on med ball. I hit pause and tried but it was too frustrated and I would either do 1 or 2 or just stop, alternate between the feet and the hands being on the ball and get a decent pump. It kind of disrupted the rhythm for me. Same with the stability ball med ball combo decline push up. I found that easier but I just gave up on it by the third week of the section and just did decline push ups off a plyo box and using a med ball under my arms. That's just me. Overall, the p90x series is great, this was well worth it and gave me great results. On to #3.

This will be an abbreviated review- this program is an interesting entry into the beach body canon of workout chillers. It's a lot of next generation stuff; as someone who's completed it I have to say it's very different from its predecessor. I'll describe this by example- my example; I did two rounds of the original P90X. It got me out of some bad repetitive workout habits; I lived on a plateau. I had a routine I did that was just so-so, didn't really leave me anywhere I'd describe as fit but not out of shape. So after two rounds of P90X I was in the best shape of my life; the indicative high-water mark of this routine for me is my performance during Ab Ripper X. The most I'd ever done in the Mason Twist was 46 by the end. After one round of P90X2 my overall athleticism was noticeably improved; I went back to the comfortable baseline that was P90X and while I struggled through Chest and Back like we all did when we started, Ab Ripper was the best performance I'd ever had; blew past 50 mason twists, arms up whenever I could. Plyo was substantially easier. So my point in writing all of this; I feel P90X is a great boot camp for getting into shape, I feel P90X2 is a longer gameplan. This program I feel I could do perpetually, strength with occassional recovery week and PAP interruptions, and not only maintain the shape I got into with P90X, but exceed it. The Chest Back and Balance routine, for example, is humbling; after completing P90X2 I am still not matching the cast of the video in performance; these resistance routines leave a lot of room for growth; more than the 5 weeks I gave myself. Tony Horton describes this a functional fitness, "life fitness". He's probably right, this program seems more sustainable for developing a healthier lifestyle.

This is a great workout series and meal plan. Just stick to your schedule and you will get ripped in 90 days. I did the original a couple of years ago and this is a good change-up.

Worth its weight in gold! I'll buy the next series, too. The variation keeps you engaged the results keep you coming back. You can start with just the DVDs and add equipment as you go. I'd suggest starting with a good set of resistance bands and go from there. Took me a while to build the core and shoulder strength to follow the whole routine with the equipment.

Just started the exercise routine. Very effective program. Be ready to use parts of your body normally not touched in a weight room.

A couple of weeks in I feel great and am at 50% of my weight loss goal. This is a great workout, the only downside is you do need additional equipment. If you dont have anything here's what I would buy to get started:

1. Yoga mat; you do a lot of exercises on the floor. Without the mat you're guaranteed to get rug burn
2. Resistance bands. You'll use these to stretch and to replace medicine balls and dumbbells.
3. Stability ball. You'll use this a lot in these videos. However, many exercises are easier without the ball.

I am enjoying this workout. I have been using P90X for 5 weeks, and it is working well. The workouts so far range from 55 minutes to 80 minutes each day. It does require a fair amount of extra gear, but I was able to find most of that on Amazon or at local stores. The extra gear could easily cost an extra $150 if you don't have any of the equipment. Overall, however, I am having fun and enjoying working out in the morning.
