Re: Any P90x'ers on Board?

My wife works the P90X into her weekly change up. I really prefer to go lift at the gym and I do the exercise bike after lifting for cardio. There is something that feels so good about pushing your own limits and seeing your strength progress. After you have leveled off in your progression with P90X you should really try some old fashioned lifting. Most of my male friends all agree after getting into the habit of lifting it becomes obvious that lifting is just necessary for guys to feel their best.

Keep up the P90X long enough and you will have built a great habit into your life.

Zodo...Great video, thanks

BF, although I have never seen the full px90 workouts, from what I have seen they look like a well rounded workout.

I have tried everytype of sport and workout.....My favorit is crossfit. You get the same pump as lifting wieghts with the benifit of substance to back it up, sort of speak

Re: Any P90x'ers on Board?

I did some p90x back in 2007 and lost 35 pounds. One thing I must stress is eating a good diet. My diet consist of almost even proportions of fat, protein and carbohydrates. I read once from a workout guru, "you can't out train a bad diet.". Keep this in mind as you push through the p90x workout system. Recently I have been running one p90x workout, called Interval X plus. After lots of reading, I found lots of good information about high intensity interval training. Either way, best of luck to you and as I always health before wealth.

Re: Any P90x'ers on Board?

I'm still in the planning stage on starting P90x.
I really need the exercise for my physical and mental health esp before the semester begins. TOG, I know that you know what I mean.

I found a new Muay Thai/mma gym that is run by a protege of my instructor.

I'm thinking about going there to start up training again but I'm hesitant due to injuries.

Re: Any P90x'ers on Board?

UPDATE: finished my first round w/ p90x and real happy w/ the results.

A few results for the numbers guys:
Weight: down 7%
Body fat: down 17.9%
Flexibility: up massively
Muscle gain: moderate results (biggest development was abdominal area)
The program did what I wanted - which was to drop weight and body fat. That was my primary goal heading into it and I'm happy w/ the results. The biggest surprise for me was how flexible I now am! With the amount of stretching and holds you do in this program, you increase flexibility quite a bit. I just feel 'looser' and not as tense.

Overall, I'd highly recommend this. It's a 90 day program, which isn't much to ask IMO. And if insanity hadn't come out, I would be doing another cycle of p90x.

Next up: Insanity

And from what I've heard, p90x is a warmup compared to this program. I'm looking forward to giving it a go.

Keep it up BF. You are doing a steady pace on the weight loss and you are definitely feeling better with those results.
Go for insanity, you have the motivation now.
