I know, it’s Friday but I need to post to have something to refer to. Yesterday I opted to go for Tony’s Olde Time Plyo from P90X instead of Vertical Plyo since I was a little irked by Shaun T, although not necessarily due to Vertical Plyo. I have to admit, it was VERY basic, but at the same time still a challenge and easily scaleable upwards. I can’t imagine that MC2 is going to be able to surpass the success of the original and from the look of some of the message boards it seems like it may suffer the same overcomplication that Insanity:Asylum does. I hope not, it would be great, in fact, epic to be able to refer to 24 DVDs with the quality and balance of complexity and brute simplicity that P90X has. So last night was very enjoyable, today is the gym party so I cannot imagine I will be able to do anything active since we still have to go to Costco and prep the toppings for the burgers. That said, maybe tomorrow I can fit a weight and cardio workout into one day for a change.

What is the best thing about P90X, it may not be Plyo, or the fact that Tony seems to refer to every DVD as the mother of all the P90X workouts or the X in P90X it is more like the fact that the workouts are as hard as you need them to be. Basic, simple and able to be crushed by simple hard work. They are also just as easy to follow for the first time user, regardless of the fact that they are probably nearing 10 years old now.
