P90X

Has anybody on here tried P90X? I recently decided that all of my old workouts were getting boring and wanted to give this a shot since it seems to be getting a lot of positive reviews. Not sure I want to drop $130 for a workout program though so any input would be great.

Re: P90X

You can find the complete set on ebay for 90 bucks.

I did Insanity instead only because the original P90X commercials creeped me out and reminded me of Mark Wahlberg in Fear. I was already healthy and worked out a lot and Insanity kicked my ass.





Fucking bitches. Getting money.

Re: P90X

I have been doing P90X for the past six weeks. It's very intense but well worth the payoff. I'm sure you can find the dvd's to download online, that's what I did.

Re: P90X

I've seen torrents for it floating around on the net. I've heard it was well worth the cash though. I've considered trying it myself.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

@ Panther: do not know when I was speaking for you?

@ Enigma: SL 5x5 isn't a bad program. I would actually recommend it to a beginner, next to Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe. Nearly the same principles but in all honesty, novice lifters don't need 5 sets across. They can make extraordinary gains with 3 sets of 5 across at the same weight. So, I would say Starting Strength is the more appropriate program for novices but Stronglifts is a very nice alternative.

I actually went back on Starting Strength to increase my squat back up to what it was after losing some strength after a bout' with pneumonia. I can't promote the program enough.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Thanks for the replies Rajah and Flex - I'll look into that Starting Strength program before starting one. Luckily I've just started a pretty labour-intensive job which involves a lot of lifting heavy stuff and a lot of walking around non-stop - tiring, but I imagine I'll be a lot stronger by the end of it.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Yeah, hard labour can be devastating on the body. It only takes one time to hurt yourself. Lift properly and do whatever you can to stay healthy.

Speaking of lifting techniques, trust me when I say be careful on dumbbell squats. My legs feel like they're gonna collapse. And it all happened this past Wednesday! Doing better than I was though.

HIT PLAY IN CASE OF EMERGENCY!

Good collapse or bad collapse?
