I just started it almost two weeks ago and you start noticing a difference within the second week. You will notice that you have a bit more strength and stamina and gradually doing more reps.

It also depends on what kind of shape you are in when you start the program. I was bulking up during the summer but then I got bored and stopped working out for about 2 months and lost about 10 pounds of muscle. It was really hard at first doing the pull ups and chinups and Im still working hard on getting those numbers up, but pullups have to be the hardest exercise there is in the program.

YES

This is coming from a guy who's been a varsity athlete in HS and college. Maybe because I never did cross fit training before, but the intensity of the work out is different - on a positive note.

FYI, I don't even do the Yoga, Kempo, and plyo ( my bball days are done a long time ago )

I just finished Day 60. At this point - I still have trouble doing cross legged reaches ( ab work out ) for 25 reps after the other sequence of the ab work out.

After Day 90, I would stick with my normal gym routine for 4 months ( with changes to the exercise every 4 weeks ) then go back to this again.

^ I just skimmed through them as I didn't have time to read all of it and what I've read is they know someone using it, seen it on facebook or whatever. I was asking personal results.

Next time, if you are going to be a jackass or "hardcore" about your answer, please keep it to yourself and let someone else like Will068 answer.

edit: no need for arguments on this thread.

I'm on the ten minute trainer right now. Its not really 10 minutes as you need to do 3 10-minute video's in one session as per the chart for a more intense workout. I've ditched the band on some workouts for dumbells now and its going pretty good. I highly suggest this for people who can't keep up with P90x.

Like P90,10-minute trainer is a series of video's. One 10-minute video for Cardio, Total Body, Lower Body, etc. You can perform one each day or more for accelerated results. 10-minute trainer is geared more for older people and women so a single 10-minute workout may feel like a long warm up for some. You dont have to do 3. I do 3 b/c my fitness level isn't that bad but not quite at the P90x level.

Here's part of the chart,

Cardio X is actually pretty good. It starts off pretty slow with yoga and stretching but picks up pretty well at the 1/2 way mark.

has anyone here actually followed the nutrition plan for the P90x? Naturally having a strict diet plan is key to any workout regime if you want great results...So I'm thinkin about following this one to see how it works..

however, I'm having a bit of trouble understanding it lol...anyone familiar with it or has done it?
