P90x

It's all over the infomercials at night. It seems like they give amazing results in just 90 days.

Does anyone use this home fitness training?

Discuss please.

I've seen the infomercial as well and it looks promising. Then again, it's pretty hardcore: 6 workouts a week, ~60 mins per workout with varying workouts. If you did any sort of varying workout which shocks your muscles for 3 months, you will see results. You will need a chin-up bar for your door frame.

That's all you need to consider.

Oh wow. That's intense, I had no clue it was 6 workouts a week ~ 60 mins.

I thought it was a magical work-out plan 5 minutes a day, 3 days a week thing. haha..

Yep, no shortcuts unless you use crack.
The P90X is not for beginners either, you have to have a certain level of fitness before you start it.

fyi, if you do any kind of downloading of movies etc, you can find the entire program online at mininova for download. its huge, about 8gb but if you plan on doing it, you can burn them all to dvd and it even comes with the calendars and worksheets. I downloaded it tosee what the workouts look like. pretty hardcore as everyone said. Oh if you download it for free, youll be missing out on the supplements etc. but just to try out it might be worth it to download if youre that interested. I deleted it after watching 2 workouts.

35 pounds in 2 months? that's not healthy to lose that much weight that fast. i especially find this hard to believe if you weren't following a diet plan.

i have heard that P90X is a good program though if you can stay motivated to follow it.

P90X Program.. There are actually 3 different programs you can choose for P90X. The one I have listed below is the Classic Version. There is also Lean and another one called Doubles..

The program has 3 phases which are 4 weeks each but they allow you to do any particular phase longer if you feel you need to before going to the next phase.. Each phase has a different nutrition guide as well because each phase is different.

PHASE 1

Weeks 1-3

Day 1 - Chest & Back, Ab Ripper X
Day 2 - Plyometrics
Day 3 - Shoulders & Arms, Ab Ripper X
Day 4 - Yoga X
Day 5 - Legs & Back, Ab Ripper X
Day 6 - Kenpo X
Day 7 - Rest or X Stretch

Week 4

Day 1 - Yoga X
Day 2 - Core Synergistics
Day 3 - Kenpo X
Day 4 - X Stretch
Day 5 - Core Synergistics
Day 6 - Yoga X
Day 7 - Rest or X Stretch

PHASE 2

Week 5-7

Day 1: Chest, Shoulders & Triceps, Ab Ripper X
Day 2: Plyometrics
Day 3: Back and Biceps, Ab Ripper X
Day 4: Yoga X
Day 5: Legs & Back, Ab Ripper X
Day 6: Kenpo X
Day 7: Rest or X Stretch

Week 8

Day 1: Yoga X
Day 2: Core Synergistics
Day 3: Kenpo X
Day 4: X Stretch
Day 5: Core Synergistics
Day 6: Yoga
Day 7: Rest or X Stretch

PHASE 3

Week 9 & 11

Day 1: Chest & Back, Ab Ripper X
Day 2: Plyometrics
Day 3: Shoulders & Arms, Ab Ripper X
Day 4: Yoga X
Day 5: Legs & Back, Ab Ripper X
Day 6: Kenpo X
Day 7: Rest or X Stretch

Week 10 & 12

Day 1: Chest, Shoulders & Triceps, Ab Ripper X
Day 2: Plyometrics
Day 3: Back & Biceps, Ab Ripper X
Day 4: Yoga X
Day 5: Legs & Back, Ab Ripper X
Day 6: Kenpo X
Day 7: Rest or X Stretch

Week 13

Day 1: Yoga X
Day 2: Core Synergistics
Day 3: Kenpo X
Day 4: X Stretch
Day 5: Core Synergistics
Day 6: Yoga X
Day 7: Rest or X Stretch

It is generally a high intensity work out only 3-4 days per week. The "filler" days are Yoga, Plyometrics, and Kenpo which some may find just as intense.

The Ab Ripper X is 15 minutes of abdominal destruction.

Dedication and Discipline!!!!!!!

If you can stick with it, it will work.
But it is no differnt than going to a gym and working hard.

The only thing i see from this program is that everything is layed out for you.
But then again, if you were working out at a gym, you create your own layout.

You can Download everything off the internet, but i don't have the link.

You can also purchase the full dvd set at Metrotown at *As Seen on TV* or something by the Bay (Level 2/ Foodcourt Area)
