P90X2 X2 Recovery + Mobility Review

As odd as it might sound, this workout is the keystone of the P90X2 system. You do this workout twice a week if you choose not to rest instead. It’s a great deal better in my opinion than the X Stretch workout and if used as recommended will keep you in great shape with regards to flexibility and muscular suppleness. The difference is the mobility aspect of the workout, something that was conspicuous by it’s absence from P90X.

Sun Salutations – Starting with a mini Yoga section including breathing, hamstring stretching and up and down dog.
Leg Swing – A well knows ballistic stretch to soccer players. Basically swinging leg forward and backwards and side to side with the leg straight.
Step Back Lunge Twist – Using weighted bar step back into lunge while holding the bar out in front and twisting your body away from the back leg.
Squat Press – Squat down, press up, stand up
Single Leg Touch Down – Stand on one leg and reach down with opposite arm to touch the baby toe.
Foam Rolling – Just like the daily warm up, a section of foam rolling the bodyparts. This is a 20 minute section of basic foam rolling, a great skill to master for relief of tight muscles.
Next is a repeat of the previous sections
Step Back Lunge Twist – Using weighted bar step back into lunge while holding the bar out in front and twisting your body away from the back leg.
Squat Press – Squat down, press up, stand up
Single Leg Touch Down – Stand on one leg and reach down with opposite arm to touch the baby toe.
Vinyasa to Pigeon – A yoga section providing a stretch for the piriformis and ITB area
Frog – Same as P90X frog, baiscally middle splits on your knees
Hamstring Stretch – Seated toe reaches
Roller Angel – Laying lengthwise on the roller allowing the arms to fall down to the floor
Shavasana Foam Roller – Corpse pose with roller supporting your whole spinal column
