    I'm getting bored with my workouts and was thinking of trying out the p90x workouts. Looking for opinions...anyone had success with it?

    I know someone in the music building of my college who's been using P90X. His name is Jake. Totally straight guy. But I've definitely noticed...he's been getting really, REALLY buff. And it's been turning me on... icon_redface.gificon_redface.gif

    I've been curious about it myself. But I don't think I'm that athletic to try it. icon_redface.gif Although I could probably adapt it to what I'm capable of, or just learn really slowly.

    The body responds well to change.

    I don't think you can prepare mentally enough for all those pull ups. If you do it, prepare to commit completely to the time and focus requirements (esp with the eating) that go along with it to get max results.

    And get your mute button ready because Tony Horton is the most annoying trainer in the world.

    Literally tons of people have gotten awesome results from it. I've never done it because I don't have any accommodations or space for it at home.

    There are a few guys from the gym that only go to the gym once a week now and the rest of the time they are doing the p90x. Some try to do the routines at the gym and they look like insane MF's jumping and climbing all over the chairs and benches.

    I've since stopped doing it, but if you are looking into it as, do it. It is a great plateau buster or just workout plan. I'd do it with a friend, just because it keeps you motivated, but solo works fine.

    I haven't done P90X but I've been doing Insanity which is put out by the same company. Insanity focuses a bit more on getting ripped up, which is what I want, and it's a great workout. I imagine P90X is good too - I've heard good things about it and will likely try it after finishing Insanity.

    I also have cut my time in the gym from 3 or 4 times a week to 1 or 2 times a week just as a supplement to the in home workouts.

    I haven't followed the P90X regimen as faithfully as I should due to my schedule. However, what I have done has been amazing. I've been doing it for about 6 weeks now, and yes, the change has been significant even with my modified version of the program. But I can only imagine what would happen if I did follow it 100%. No doubt, worth it, but you really have to psyche yourself up mentally and do the nutrition part to get results.
