P90X workouts are meant to get you a workout in the comfort of your home.
Tony Horton's P90X workout system is an at-home, total-body workout routine. The P90X program uses strength training, cardiovascular workouts and flexibility routines to improve your overall fitness. The workout DVDs are challenging at first, but as with all exercise routines, your body adapts over time. The P90X Plus is an addition to the original P90X system to increase the challenges of your workout as your fitness level improves. The addition will allow you to see continued results.
The basic P90X comes with 12 DVDs that include 12 unique workouts, a nutrition plan, exercise worksheets and a calendar to track your routine. The P90X Plus program contains five workouts on four DVDs, exercise worksheets, and online access to a chat community. Both systems are meant to be 90-day workouts.
The P90X program is for those who have prior exercise experience. The goal of the system is to build lean muscles and increase metabolism to change the shape of your body. The P90X Plus program is specifically for those who have graduated from the P90X program. The workout DVDs are not longer workouts, but they are done at a higher intensity. There are also variations to existing exercises, which serve to stimulate your muscles in different ways.
As of Sept. 2013, and according to the Beachbody website, the original P90X system retails for approximately $140, which includes shipping and handling. The P90X Plus workout retails for approximately $70 including shipping and handling. If you try the workouts and are not satisfied, the P90X base system has a 90-day money back guarantee. The P90X Plus system comes with 30-day money back guarantee.
Although some of the exercises in both programs are similar, they use variations to target your muscles from different angles. The P90X Plus system also increases the intensity of the exercises. For example, the P90X base program uses a standard pushup to strengthen your upper body. The P90X Plus uses a climber pushup which adds leg movements to your upper-body exercise, making it more challenging. Another exercise difference is the chair dips in P90X program to strengthen your triceps, compared with the one-legged bridge dips in the P90X Plus.
