The P90X workout program consists of 12 diverse and ultra-intense workouts. By using an advanced training technique known as Muscle Confusion, the P90X extreme training system forces your body to grow and avoids the plateau problem associated with so many other systems.
This means that regardless of how long you work out with P90X, it never gets easy!
