P90X2 X2 Recovery + Mobility Workout
For me, this was a much needed workout, and YES, I did feel way better after. (Tuesday I did the plyo workout and then trained Sambo. I was pretty beat up) Ft the very end of this recovery workout there are some unnecessary moves, but all in all, a very good video to do. (especially if you know how to use a foam roller)
As you can tell, Tony’s love for the foam roller has deepend almost to obsession at this point. And I must say, even though we have 2 foam rollers here at FitLifeSF HQ, I need to get the sick evil looking foam roller. My standard density white foam rollers are not doing it for me. I need more pain. (But that is me)
I like how Tony takes the extra time to rehab, and condition the body this time through. It will be a big win down the line, and even though he had a stretching/recovery workout in P90X, the use of the roller here is a big win. Where this video fails a bit is the lack of specific instruction. There are a lot more ways to use the roller than he is showing, and a lot more effective techniques. It is a good introto using the roller, but you will very quickly want more. (For a beginner it would be nice to know “what not to do.” )
It’s is a well placed workout in the program, especially if you are doing more than just the P90X2 workouts. It will definately add to your durability, and help you to keep “Bringing It” for the weeks to come. Thumbs up.
My grade for this one is a B+
