    Has anyone tried the p90x training program? It looks pretty impressive. If you have, is there a workout for each day? How long is each workout? Any other info?

    I just saw the infomercial this past weekend. Yes, it does look impressive. However, any intense workout and diet program will work wonders if you are diligent. I did the Bill Philips' Body for Life program three years ago and lost 55 lbs and put on muscle and definition. Was good for about two years. I got injured working out and then the weight started to come back on. I'm still in good shape and defined but too much overall body fat. The thing is to stick with whatever program you choose and follow it to the letter.

    In p90X there are workouts for each day, roughly an hour each, with the additional abs workout (15 min) every other day. it is intense but worth it if you stick with it. Nothing out of the ordinary as far as workout video/ routines go however.

    I'm a month in and love the program.

    There's a six day program with an optional seventh day of stretching instead of a rest day. The program switches out a few times over a three month period. The stretch and yoga days are about 90 minutes. The other days range from 60 minutes to 90 depending if it's an ab day.

    You also have an option of doubling up your workouts. They will tell you which ones to do.

    The DVDs give you the options of music, no music, cues, etc. You can also do them with no sound...if you get tired of hearing the same thing over and over. =) At least you can change that up a bit.

    Here is a link to a thread where identical twins conducted their own study. One did Body for Life and the other did P90x. You be the judge.

    After hearing about my sister and a friend that have done P90x - i decided to commit & try the program. I should be getting everything later this week and hope to start by this coming Saturday. Any other details I've heard have been given by ScottCLE - but everyone I know that has tried it seems to have really liked it and gotten good results.

    My sister is in her early 40s has had a few kids and lost about 17 inches in the first month. At first she lost and then went back up as she replaced fat with muscle - but she looks great. She's tried a lot of diets before - I was impressed that she's stuck with something so 'intense'. She really likes the sense of community you get from their website and user forums. Between their forums and all the great people here on RJ - I'm really looking forward to the same!

    I have managed to lose 71lbs in 8 months off the program. The most important is dieting.

    I've lost 55 lbs following the P90X and P90X2 workouts and continue to do modified versions of both. I've enjoyed decent results and enjoyed doing the program itself. I'd recommend it.

    JohnBJock,

    What do you think about muscle mass?Do u see a decent amount of muscle mass? Or do you recommend gym workouts with p90x for that. i know u can increase weights overtime with things like weighted vests. What do u think?

    I had little arm muscle when I started the program ...so, yes I'd say I managed to build some decent muscle mass. Increasing the weights in my program workouts and monitoring my diet (enough protein ,etc) will increase the muscle tissue. Hope that helps.

    I just finished week 1 of P90X and with a radical change in diet (45% protein) I feel amazing and 18 y/o again. Mostly the change in dietary lifestyle has improved me energy and overall well being completely! Excited to start week 2.

    I've been doing P90X on and off for years. When I'm doing it, I notice a huge change in the way I feel / carry myself. Occasionally I get comments about being ripped or just looking healthier which is a plus.

    What I like most about it is that you can do it from home with a fairly minimal upstart investment (just need to get the pull up bar and weights). I think it can get boring after a while so it's important to switch it up with something else.

    At this point, P90X is my "warm up" workout that I do in the morning before leaving the house to do other stuff liking snowboarding or biking. I try not to be too much of a gym rat and enjoy the outdoors more.
