Workouts similar to p90x

Iím finishing up another round of classic p90x and my results have been really out of this world. I know tony has a bunch of other workouts but Iím looking for something similar to the magic of p90x. Iíve tried body beast and got huge so not that. I also tried STS and got huge from that.

Would something like Peakfit be similar?

Itís streaming, but Daily Burn has a program called Live to Fail thatís a similar format. Hereís a review from Disfunctional Parrot:
https://dysfunctionalparrot.com/heal...rn-livetofail/

I never did a full rotation but the workouts were similar in nature to P90X. I also had amazing results from P90X (see signature line ) and would love to do it again, but those kind of workouts wear me out too much now. P90X2 isnít as fantastic as P90X, but I think the system has merit. I would probably do PLYO X instead of Plyocide if I were to do a rotation, though.

In my experience, P90X2 does seem to give similar or better results than P90X. That being said, many people went in expecting similar moves to P90X and got torqued when they were disappointed. I think P90X2 is an unsung gem. It really gets into the places that heavy lifting neglects. That may be another reason that the typical weight lifter rejected this program initially ---P90X2 will expose the weaknesses of the muscular folks who have the appearance of being fit. The program really emphasizes core strength and functional movement. It is good for gaining definition without much bulk. I personally do great with STS/Body Beast/Edge Booty Xtreme. Heavy lifting makes me smaller. But programs like P90X2 give definition and "Spiderman" skills. I grew to love doing push-ups on 4 medicine balls Darn--I think I've just talked myself into another P90x2 rotation

ETA: I liked P90X3 but it just didn't keep me ripped. I haven't revisited it in a while but would only consider using it as a sort of "rest" rotation. I never completed Peakfit as it seemed to make me more hungry and left me feeling slightly over-trained.

Review 1 / review 2 that may interest you.

I agree with you about P90X2. I also experienced overtraining with PeakFit and I think it has way too much impact.

Thank you everyone for the help! I forgot about supreme 90 and I am going to check out daily burn!

Taiga do you think p90x3 doubles would be better?

I'm sure you could increase results by doubling but I just couldn't keep the definition in my muscles doing that program. And it wasn't exciting enough (for me any way) that I would be able to tolerate a trial of doing doubles. I liked the program ok but P90X, P90X+ and P90X2 are all better programs when it comes to muscle definition (with limited bulk). I'm not criticizing P90X3. I think it just had different goals. And in all fairness, the workouts are generally shorter in length than the other "X" programs.

Supreme 90 was actually pretty good. I had better results with P90X2 but Supreme 90 was definitely respectable. The pace was a bit more harried than in P90X so I never revisited that set. And not to make it harder on you, but UFC Fit and Rush Fit also provided nice muscle definition, though there was more focus on body weight exercises.
