Chelsea’s P90X review
Before I begin, if you want to check out Bryan’s P90x Results just CLICK HERE, otherwise keep reading for my review.
First lets start with the basics, P90X is a 90 day at home fitness routine. It uses what Tony Horton has coined as “muscle confusion” to prevent hitting a plateau in your training. P90x combines cardio, strength training, core training, and flexibility into its workouts. The program has three “rotations”—classic, lean, and doubles, we did the classic so this review will be focusing on that rotation.
The program not only gives you amazing workouts, but it gives you a very great nutrition guide. Along with the guide it provides an easy list of foods that are more and less favorable to consume while working out. There are the obvious good foods such as fruits and vegetables, and then there are the obvious bad foods such as pastries, desserts, and soda pop. I really like the food guide though because there are five levels of foods and it explains to you which ones you can have all the time and which ones you should consume in moderation or not at all.
A word of caution. These workout are extremely intense but very effective. If you follow along as best you can throughout the workout your stamina will improve and so will your overall fitness. I began seeing results after the first two weeks. They weren’t dramatic, but all good things take time, and it made me feel good knowing that things were starting to change. The workout routines run from around 50 minutes to 80 minutes depending on which routing you are doing that day. This time also includes a five to ten minute warm up and a five to ten minute cool down. P90x recommends you do a minimum of six workout routines a week with the seventh day left as a stretch day or a do an optional relaxation day.
Unlike I expected, the p90x workouts were fun. I never felt bored, or that I was doing the same thing day after day. You target a new group of muscles each day so you never over work any certain area, but you will be sore for the first week or so. Tony Horton is also a very engaging instructor and host. He has a light and comical aura that made me laugh throughout the workouts. He also made me feel compelled to work my hardest and finish the workouts, even when I was exhausted. But he also always stresses good form and quitting before you hurt yourself. He is so likable, I almost felt as though he would know I was quitting and would be disappointed in me. Haha! all in all i would say that P90X is a very worthwhile workout routine. The online help and support you get is wonderful too. You can chat with fellow P90X’ers and find helpful tips, tricks, and recipes to help you continue your weight loss or fitness journey. They also offer daily prizes in the “Million Dollar Body Game” like iPods, digital camera’s and more for just logging your daily workouts on your Beachbody account that comes with p90x. One of the main things that sold me about P90x was the 90 day money back guarantee. If I was not 100% happy I could get my money back, however I was much happier than I could have imagined.
