Does P90X work?
What you should know about P90X.
You've seen the informercial on TV, and like so many others, you thought "It's just another informercial. I bet it doesn't work." Then times passed, and you saw the commercial again. "Well, he does look fit, and the concept makes sense," you said to yourself sitting on your coach eating a bag of skittles. This article is for you. I've been there, endured the pain for you, and I've seen the results.
It's all about muscle confusion. In the past, I worked out for years with no results. The problem? I did the same thing over and over. My body adjusted to what I was doing and stopped burning fat. P90X is organized that your muscles never know what is going to happen next. "Oh, chest and back today? Well, we better get ready for weeks of this!" Wrong! You hit them with a different exercise every day and when you enter a new month the weekly routine shifts entirely. From Chest and Back to Arms and Legs, there's even Yoga, it really is a full workout, not missing a muscle.
There was a point where I even started eating more so I wouldn't lose a dramatic amount of weight. And once again, this was all because of muscle confusion. Going into the 3rd month, I wondered if all the work was worth it, but once I shifted gears into this cycle all bets were off. Every time I stepped on the scale, it was 2 to 3 pounds gone. After so many years of frustration, this was so exciting; actually seeing a program that works!
The most difficult part about the entire program, is listening to the DVDs every day. If you're like me, you have no attention span. This was a challenge. But, I quickly set up a system where I could mute the DVDs on my laptop and watch whatever I wanted to on TV. I have heard many, many people say they get bored listening to Tony Horton every day. So, use my trick and this won't happen. It's actually quite enjoyable.
I went from 215 pounds to 193 and could not be happier with the results. I have ran marathons, worked out at gyms 4 to 5 times per week, and none of these things have come close to P90X. The system works, and it's fun - after you get used to it.
