do you think its legit? know anyone who has done it
good for losing fat.. not the best option for retaining muscle while losing fat or just wanting to build mass
I'm doing it right now. It's legit. Big changes in 30 days. There's a giant P90x thread in this forum.
i definetly wouldnt do it *shrug*
Like anything else it depends on the person and their goals. Like any advertised "program" it provides structure, and that is what most people need to regain or begin their healthy lifestyle.
This is highly successful because it it’s directed towards people with little time (by choice or not), those needing step by step guidance and no desire/intention/ability (time) to workout away from home. You will see most programs satisfy these basic needs but like ice cream, not everyone likes the same thing.
Point being if it is appealing to you, keeps you motivated and gives you better decision making when it comes to eating and staying active it will work. That is if you goal is to lose weight and simply drop pounds. It is definitely geared at the average overweight American who sits at home 95% of the time when not at work.
get a gym membership. don't waste your time
im on week 5 of it and swear by it.
now if ur looking to be jacked and all that, this wont be for u. (i think the jacked look is kinda goin out anyways)
if u want to look toned, and healthy/fit, this is where u want to be, google image search some p90x results to get an idea.
its an ass kicking program, and works wonders.
I''m doing it now. Looking to both lose some fat and gain mass - Im at 135 now, looking to get up to 175-180
am I wasting my time?
not at all. if u want mass, Tony clearly states aim for 8-10 reps, with heavy weight or bands, whichever u're using.
a good way to gauge urself, is make sure those last 3 reps are tough.
in addition: there are 3 flavors of p90x when u get it.
depending on your goal, u select which calendar.
that's exactly what I do.
cant afford gym membership right now, so I guess if after 3 months of p90 I dont see much progess I'll start back. cant lose
one thing's for sure - Im working harder now on P90 than Ive ever done at the gym
p90? or p90x
Im in Jamaica broseph.
typical gym membership here is about 7000-8000 a month, which is about US$80-90 a month Im in college
I do it, lose about 5 lbs a month, loosely follow the diet, and have knee problems so couldn't do some of the plyo/lunges/squats, so there's definitely room for improvement.
It's a terrific "getting back into the swing of things" program. Sets up a structure of several unique exercise sets with demonstrations, many I didn't know when I was attending the gym regularly in college.
I would not use p90x if you aren't in shape or are looking to get bigger, it's pretty much a toning program. If you lift heavy, I'm sure you'll gain, but I'd follow the sticky to gain size.
P90X is for pathetic faggots with no self motivation and low expectations for themselves. It's better then nothing but comparing it to a real gym routine and solid diet is like comparing fucking a dime and a grapefruit on stage in front of a bunch of gays.
I suggest you stfu and never post here again.
wise advice from a strong intelligent man. I suggest you follow it, verbatim.
sorry didnt mean to offend brolly crew - but this article pretty much made me feel that way when i read it a few years ago.
hope someone finds it interesting as well
here are the first 2 google "non-marketing" images for "p90x"
both images are "mid phase"
its a 90 day program.
give it a try to develop your own opinions on it i tried it for a week, and now im 1 month in. (i lifted heavy for 8 years) im no pro or anything, but p90x works for me, and i still have 2 months left.
post your "full phase" progress photos
im only 1 month in.
but heres a good one when i searched: p90x 90 days:
impressive to me
