Almost done week 2 of P90X.

It's been pretty intense so far. I could see how after 90 days the program would get somewhat redundant, though.
If you're looking to get bulky, this is not the program for you. I chose it to lean down a bit and add some muscle definition as I am already pretty muscular. So far I've actually gained a little bit of weight, but I've noticed my waist has slimmed a tad. I'm almost at 200 lbs. The Plyometric and Leg workouts are intense, and this is coming from a guy with pretty strong legs.

I've found that it's easier to have a check list of what they do in each work out and do it myself, so I can listen to my own music and not having to listen to Tony Horton be all buddy-buddy :roll:

I hate doing p90 X, not because its hard but because of that guy who tells everyone what to do is super annoying.. "lets go check out the kids".

a) It isn't a secret.

b) Athletes have been training that way since Christ was in short pants.

I've been doing P90X for a week now. I worked out regularily before and I just wanted to trim down a bit while retaining my muscle mass. I've had to suppliment some exercises with weights as I dont think I will gain muscle from doing the routines itself. Yesterday was chest and back and I added shoulders, triceps and biceps to it. And the other day was kempo and I then added squats, leg press, extension, hamstring curls, and calf raises to it. I think that one day a week of upper body groups isnt enough. If you start with nothing, obviously you will gain. But if you start with something, I think you may have a difficult time gaining. What are your experiences with it and maybe modifying it? ps- i hate yoga. I feel like a tool going into 'warrier one'.

Yoga is good for you, although I can't stand listening to that dude blabber on and the music on the video is inane, much rather go to an actual yoga studio, better eye candy too. You can get mass and doing calisthenics (look at male gymnasts) and not eating crap, but doing P90X with the higher reps scheme won't really help you out since you already have been training for a while. I picked up a book called Convict Conditioning while overseas, that basically outlines an old school bare bones calisthenics program, and I have been making some gains with it (and of course my CrossFit Football).

P90x is great for people who don't have a lot of experience with weight training or who don't have a workout plan they normally follow. I found I got really quick results in terms of leaning up and muscle tone - having said that, I didn't do the diet portion - It's just way too much food!
The nice thing about it is that once you've done the dvd's and know what you're doing, you can just print off the booklet and take it with you to the gym - so that you don't have to listen to Tony "go check on the kids" for the umpteenth time ;)

I'd say it's worth a try for sure. If you are planning to do one dvd a day as the program suggests it can get pretty tiring after 3 weeks, but the workouts themselves are pretty good.

But, I started P90X this week, so far I like it !

The diet: It's too much food for me ! :dubious:

Any suggestion ?


Too much food? I don't understand the question LOL, then again I am a competitive strongman.

What do you mean 7 portions of protein? Although I do understand our goals are different, I can't get enough protein, even though I am around the 240gs a day or so mark.
