P90X and the like.

#1 Unread post by NorthernPete »

Anyone ever do this? I'm toying with the idea and want to know how well if at all this program works.

It's a great exercise program, but you have to make two commitments

1.) Finish the program
2.) Change your diet and exercise habits ongoing

Two of my nephews love it to death... I'm never quite sure if they're bragging or complaining when they talk about their workouts... LOL

Good on ya...I'm working on the healthy eating and losing weight first...then I'll worry about building muscle...going from obese middle aged guy to fit middle aged guy will take a while...but I'll get there...then I'll think about a program like this one...

Keep up the effort...and cheers to the healthier 2012!!

Later.

Probably the P90 (without the X) is a better place to start but if you can handle the extreme version why not. There's a lot of good workout programs out there.I just make up my own which includes weights, yoga, and cardio. Keep active.
