Can't remember if there was a recent thread on this (went back 5-pages and didn't find anything).
Anyway, was wondering if anyone here has tried P90X and if so, would you mind sharing your experience.
I'm 41 years old and just feel like I need something to force me out of the fitness rutt I've been in.

I did. I lost 20 pounds and tightened my body significantly.
If you are like me and need a strict regiment to keep you focused and motivated, it will work great for you. Keep in mind that you will be working out 6 days a week for approximately 1:15-1:30 hours per day. It is time consuming and demands a lot of discipline to work like it is supposed to.
The one criticism I have (and it is not really a criticism), is that any program that has you eat right and work hard will yield results. In other words, P90X is not a miracle program nor does it reinvent the wheel.
I wish you luck if you decide to do it. You will be very very sore for the first two weeks.
I recommend it if you're willing to push yourself. You'll definitely see results if you stick to the schedule and go all out
The only thing I didn't like about it was that you're watching the same set of dvds each week. So it can get a little repetitive but I guess thats expected. Aside from that, they're definitely good workouts. I'm curious to try the newer "Insanity" dvds though.
Will get results you are looking for. Will kick your ass and bring you to tears. I have been doing it for over a year. I am 45 and best shape I have been in for 20 years.
P90X is amazing, and no joke. It's not one of these hokey pokey in home work out deals. I mean, it IS an in-home workout, but it's serious. If you stick with it, you will get great results. I've been doing it for about 4 years now. The first time I did it, I started out at 215..which was the heaviest I had ever been. By the end of the 90 days, I was down to 171. I did everything for 90 days... sticking very closely to the diet..not missing a single workout.. even doing extra workouts, etc. Couldn't even believe I was looking in the same person in the mirror after 90 days. Since then, I do it 90 days on, 90 days off. I don't ever stick to the diet as religiously anymore, but that doesn't mean it won't work either, or that I'm pigging out.. cause I'm not. I weigh about 185 now.. but that's by design. In subsequent rounds, I heavied up the weights and reduced reps. The first time through I was doing a lot of reps with lighter weight, and I obviously thought I was a little thin... ripped but thin.. so I heavied up the weights to bulk up a bit.
All I would say is DEFINITELY do this. Stick with it. Don't step on the scale everyday because weight is just a number. After 2 weeks if you're not cheating on your workouts you're going to be able to see & feel the difference and after 90 days you'll be very happy you did this. Good luck!
I've went thru it twice about a year ago. Great program and if you stick with it you will see results. Diet is about 95% percent of the program and without it you won't see the results you want. The reason the program works (aside from the strict diet) is because you are working at it everyday and putting in the time. Since it sticks to a schedule, it makes sure you don't skip too many days. With that said, if you can diet and work out on your own at the gym or with your routine on a daily basis, you will still see great results. The only reason I say that is because it is extremely monotonous over time and you'll want to punch Randy Horton in the face after listening to him ramble every day. Good luck tho and if you start it, just stick to it and you'll be very satisfied.
I completely recommend it. I went from 281 to 225. I did do it 2 times through.
But it is tough. The first week is brutal, but you see results very quickly. Follow the eating plan to maximize results. Good luck if you do try it.
Perfect timing guys. I started the program 2 nights ago again.
If you have an iPhone get the app it's very much worth it
I just started insanity and like it. It takes less than an hour each day. At least the first week is that short.
I'm finishing up my first month of Insanity. Two words: NO JOKE! I don't sweat this much when I run or lift. It's a butt-kicker. I have to admit that I don't stick to the diet plan, but I'm still yielding positive results. Definitely worth it.
Unless you have been working out recently, I would recommend starting with about 50% of the workouts. If you do everything to the max on the first night, you'll be too sore to workout for several days.
I recommend starting slow so that you can workout everyday.
The great thing about P90X is that once you start, you won't do that DVD for another 7 days. But, younshould still start slow if you have been a couch potato.
