    P90X Plyos are not an actual plyometric workout. My guess is you should do them as many times as it says in the P90X guidelines.

    No really it's in the FAQ.

    Any thread to do with p90x invariably descends into a shitstorm of stupidity.

    And really, if you are working from a pre-defined program do what the program says. You wouldn't ask "hi, i'm doing starting strength, how many times per week should I squat?". If p90x doesn't tell you how often to do the different workouts it's even shittier than I thought.

    I've read in a lot of articles about plyometrics and their great properties of explosive strength and power development, explosive speed development, and absolute strength.
    In the same case also plyometrics is also a taxing portion of any routine.

    Ross Emanait had an example routine stating doing a variation of plyometrics in mix with lighter lifting days. He found plyometrics worked good into his conditioning routine also.

    I agree with this. Just my 2 cents.
