P90x: Why Confused Muscles Get Strong Faster

This is a repost from the P90x #053 newsletter and has some great information on how P90x works and why it works.

By Steve Edwards

With the popularity of P90X, the term Muscle Confusion™ is getting a lot of play in the media. And while many people credit it as the reason P90X is effective, not many people understand what it means, much less how it works. Today, we'll briefly examine what Muscle Confusion is and why it's so effective.

P90X - Power 90X Extreme Training System

P90X

This is one of my favorite workout programs! There is ample room for muscle growth and weight loss. They have the classic, doubles, and lean schedules depending on your current fitness level and where you want to be. So, if you want to go from flab to fit... from soft to hard... if you want the best body you've ever had... then you want P90X.

P90X Low Carb Diet

I'm starting a low carb diet in conjunction with P90x. If you have never completed P90x before, please see here about purchasing P90x. Otherwise, follow the nutrition guide the first round and see how you do after 90 days. I am going to try cutting during P90x to gain that six pack. My body loves to send carbs to my fat tissues, I think I am genetically predisposed to getting fat. I'll be posting recipes that are low-carb, so keep an eye out.

Insanity Plyo Cardio Circuit Review - Day 6

See my review about Plyometric Cardio Circuit. Today is my rest day, but this posting is about my workout yesterday.

Yesterday went well. It’s still extremely difficult, especially on little sleep as I went to Notre Dame today and was up at 4:48 AM to workout. I pushed myself to keep my heart rate above 170 for the duration of the workout (except stretch and cool down).

Insanity Pure Cardio Review - Day 5

Insanity Pure Cardio is 38 minutes, which doesn't sound like a lot of time, but you'll keep an eye on that clock waiting for it to tick down to zero.

To start, you'll have the usual heart-pounding "warm up" (it's really more of a workout) for 10 minutes. After which is a short break for some much needed water.

Insanity Cardio Recovery Review - Day 4

Insanity's Cardio Recovery is an easier workout than the other routines. It consists mostly of stretching and yoga moves.

There are breathing and stretching exercises, plank work, deep muscle work (which will require some leg strength for holding deep squats), quad work, oblique work, hip flexor, and balance postures.

Overall, you'll sweat a little, but it's a relatively easy workout for a "rest" day (the real rest days are Sundays).

As my calves are still very sore today, this was a much needed routine. You'll be doing Cardio Recovery for the first month.
