Muscle confusion is the secret sauce that really makes P90X work so well. The workouts are designed in a very specific way so that your muscles never get use to the workouts. When you do the same workout over and over again your body gets use to it.
When your body becomes adapted to the exercises you do your weight loss will slow down. But with P90X muscle confusion foundation your body isn’t able to adapt to the exercises so you will never plateau.
There are three different schedule variations you can do; Classic, Lean and Double. You should start with classic or lean and then when you get the hang of those move on to double.
