Day two of P90X sees the participant take part in Plyometrics. Out of all of the workouts, this is the one that scared me the most, mainly because I had no clue what it was about. I quickly found out that Plyo is all about jumping, and boy do you get a workout! Click on through to find out more about how the sessions went.
The instructor, Tony Horton tells you to think like a cat for this workout (I know, now you have that meow mix song stuck in your head), but the reason for this is that you have to be light on your feet. The intro for Ply says “Some call it the beast. With over 30 explosive jumping moves, you won;t be spending much time on the ground. Just be sure to wear some shock absorbing footwear and have a shock absorbing mat”. I have shock absorbing shoes, but after completing the routine, I can see why you would want a mat too. For this routine you will also need plenty of water and a chair.
I do not have a spreadsheet to share for this routine, but just believe me when I tell you that you are going to sweat…..A LOT. This is one hard workout and your legs will take a beating during, and after this one. I was so sore after completing this routine that I did not think my legs would move again, lol. Who knew there could be so many different variations of the squat? They all work you in completely different ways too. The whole routine is quite excellent and after the 60 minutes were up, I genuinely felt like I had a proper workout. Looking forward to day 3, which is Shoulders and Arms.
All the best,
