P90X Tips Series (Plyometrics)

P90X Tips Series Plyometrics DVD


Jarrod Ames Founder of

     This workout in the P90X series is considered to be the mother of it all. It’s cardio conditioning, leg training and jump training and athletic training all in one 60 minute workout! This workout is definitely one of the most difficult or demanding workouts in the series, especially if you are new to P90X. Here are some tips I’ve put together and now share with you after doing a few rounds of P90X myself.

1. This workout is really tough the first few times out, especially if you’re just starting out. Drink water throughout the workout but only in small sips to avoid cramping. With all the jump training movements it’s very easy to suffer from cramping due to over hydration. Also, if you are prone to cramps then eat a banana 30-45 mins before hand.
2. It’s okay to modify if, you cannot properly perform the exercise, if you are fatigued, if you get fatigued during an exercise and do it to avoid risking any injuries. It’s okay to not keep up with the people in the video, you do what you can the best that you can.
3. Do not skip the warm ups and cool downs for this video. Also consider on doing a few more leg stretches after the video. Your legs will thank you for it. 4. Do not skip the Yoga two days later! No matter how bad your legs hurt you will need the stretches towards the end of Yoga X. Your legs will feel much better after Yoga X, I promise.
5. The movements in the video are not difficult to follow. Do not over think them or try to master them the first time out. Just make sure you are using good form and when that starts to go then you know you are done. Do not sacrifice good form on any exercise just because there are seconds left on the clock.
6. Make sure you’re taking some form of recovery drink after this and really every workout. Your body needs the nutrients, as they will help your body repair after the strenuous exercise.
