I just had a quick look at billys boot camp. It looks to me more cardio oriented and a lot more girls to look at on the tv. You can also watch all of it on youtube.

P90x has resistance training 3 days a week and 12 different hour long workouts. Similar idea I guess in that you both watch them on tv.

I'm on day 39 of p90x now. Haven't missed one workout and take 1 rest day a week. Not one cheat meal in 39 days so something is working. Doing this makes me realize just how out of shape I was. Not seeing crazy visual results so far but I'm down ~5% bodyfat and ~8lbs and lost inches in some spots and seen big increases in endurance and strength relative to what I started at.

51 days to go.

My buddy burnt me a copy and I tried a bit of kenpo tonight. I felt the burn in like 10 mins. Was prob really only like 5.. I can definitely tell this is gonna be an intense program. Don't really have the nutrition plan though. But this is gonna be tough on me since I play on 2 hockey teams this summer, started to go back to the gym again, and with my non-office job, p90x is gonna be killer on me. haha.

im on DAY 24, i've always been athletic but i've usually let my skills help me get by.
anyways first week was brutal, soo fuking intense, but after that, doing the moves every week and repeating it, it gets easier in some aspect but still tiring as hell.
I can see my arms taking shape already, some muscles are showing which i havent had before. My legs i know are changing too as when i play hockey, i'm not getting tired at all. as for my abs, i believe that's one of the last thing to disappear after the fat on ur arms and everywhere else goes first?? but i could lready fit into some of my tight shirts lol.
as for nutrition plan, i do my own plan, definitely more self conscience about what i eat but yes i do cheat, bbt here and there, alcohol, i eat my mom's cooking (pho, etc). but definitely lots of protein bars n shakes and fruits n vegables.

I'm only on disc 2 and I've lost 2 lbs already. Didn't do it on consecutive days nor am I following the diet plan. haha. I guess it works, even though losing weight isn't what I want to do really, but I sure as hell sweated like there was no tmrw.

anyone working out for 3 months straight will see results if they noe wut there doing. P90x is basically for noobs that are just starting to work out or people who cant go to the gym.

my first round of p90x will be done july 13. So far lost just about 20lbs since mid april.

Yes it is common sense, eat less and move more. There is just a lot of variety in the program and the best part is it spells it out for you. Anything that gets you moving and wathicng what you eat will work. I'm happy with it so far and thats all that matters.

download it..why would u pay for it. If your looking to gain just eat more and lift more. Everyone on here is probably using p90x to lean out there body to be more cut.

Update: Finished my p90x first 90 days on saturday. Started at 185 22% bodyfat april 13 on sat july 11 i was 165 at 17% bodyfat. So I lost 20lbs and about 5% bodyfat even with beer and unhealthy choices once in awhile. Will be taking a week and a bit off and then start up round two.

I am 5'10". I know it is light. I'm still really weak but way stronger than when I started. I will be increasing my intake on my 2nd round to try and add some weight.

When I started I could barely do a chinup and now I can do 8-10. Pushups are at about 30 up from 15.

If anyone is overweight I suggest giving it a try. I recommended it to a friend and she has been doing it for 8 days now and has lost 8lbs and 19" from her arms, legs, hips and chest combined. I couldn't beleive it in just 1 week.

Has anybody else had positive/negative results from trying it?

I bought the program couple months back along with my new TV system that I put in the basement.

I consider myself in pretty good shape already when I started but still got owned by this when I first started. I think the pace that they do it was pretty intense, I found myself taking a lot of breaks.

Been doing it for 2 months and then stopped recently because life got too busy with work and other stuff and just doing basic cardio and hitting the gym once in awhile.
I don't do any of that stretching, and yoga etc stuff inbetween the workouts and don't follow the nutrition guide. I eat what I want so I guess my results can be a lot better if I did that.



Things I loved about the program:

- It's a VERY EFFICIENT workout. You get the maximum among of work in the minimal among of time.
- Very good for toning, good for the Brad Pitt in fight club look and not the meathead bodybuilder look.
- Awesome abs program.

Things I didn't like:

- Leg workouts were lacking some things. I think you still need to incorporate squads and deadlifts once in awhile.
- If you do this for a year - I can see myself getting bored. I guess you gotta do it for 90 days, then stop and do regular workouts for 6 months or so and then go back to another 90 day again.

Would I recommend it to my friends and family?

Yes, recommended it to my brother and some friends.
My brother is currently doing it and he had awesome results.
Friends are really out of shape so they really struggled the first 2-3 weeks, but now they seem to be getting the hang of it.

I did Lean P90X for about a month and a half. I lost a few pounds within the first week and a half and since then I've noticed a difference in my arms, stomach, and legs. I am trying to get back on it but I am feel so lazy. It definitely delivers great results if you stick with it. It's not easy but it offers a lot of variety which I prefer over the regular gym routines I used to do.

London Drugs also sells it as well. Personally Id just download it haha. I just grabbed it recently and checked out the ab work out and thought the program was pretty good. Will get into it later.
