    I'm in the second phase of my second round. Started my first round Feb 2nd. Went from 12% to 5.6% body fat and have gained 8 pounds. Pretty good for a super fast metabolism and a hard gainer.

    I mixed it up a little this round for some change. But, there's plenty to get used to the first round.

    Let me know if you have any questions...it'd be cool to see how you do. =)

    Wait until your plyo day...you'll wanna die! It's awesome. =)

    I bought it - started it then had to stop when my supervisor got the boot and I started working 72 - 96 hours a week - things are slowing down now and so I'm ready to get back to it - I can say it's not very easy - just have to be dedicated to doing it.

    Jbarry,

    I am not doing the full program, just doing the different workouts when I can't get to the gym. But the only equipment I am using is a few different resistance bands and it is still kicking my ass.
    A pull up bar would be very nice though, the resistance bands just aren't cutting it anymore now that I can do over a dozen pullups no problem. He also suggests pushup bars and a heart rate monitor.

    I've had it for a while now but need to get stronger for it. Maybe after the 12 week muscle building program I'll start it.

    I've been thinking about giving this a try, but I have a question for the guys using it. The way my apartment A/C - heating vents in the ceiling are set up, my ceiling is lowered to door height in the hallway, making a pull-up bar impossible to use.

    Is there an alternative to the pull-up bar, or are the workouts designed in such a way that I can just pop into the gym in my apartment complex on the days I would need the pull-up bar?

    You can use resistance bands. You will be doing enough pull ups during the workouts you will appreciate the lighter load

    Oh, and YIPPY SKIPPY SHAWN IS POSTING AGAIN!!

    I got the program for Christmas, I use to do P90 and really liked that. The diet is holding me back as I have not had time to read it.

    Good to know, Thanks Munch. I think I'll give this a try, $120 sure beats the $900 I'm paying my trainer.

    I'm definitely interested in this program. It sounds like there have been a lot of people who have had success on it. I have been thinking about getting a pull up bar and trying the program in a month or so. If the results are half as good as some people claim then it would be well worth it.

    Nope I'm still alive! It's nine months later...but I'm alive. And what a coincidence! I just did plyo before signing in. And even after a year it still kicks my ass! The amount of intensity you can gain is incredible. A year ago I could barely do the whole thing. Now I can jump across the room the whole workout. P90X has been incredible! =)

    So, I got through the first phase, though definitely had to do some modifications. Then I had a bad respiratory virus that made it impossible to work out for what should have been week 5, the first week of the second phase. Now that I'm capable of breathing again, I'm wondering whether I should start week 5 now, or just repeat the phase 1. Any thoughts?

    How long were you unable to work out? Did the illness run up against your first rest week?

    I was out of it for a week, sadly that was week 5, the non-rest week that starts the second phase.
