    P90X

    Does anybody do P90X? Or has anyone completed it? I am a week into it and love it/ hate it, lol. Definitely a heck of a workout.

    I couldn't keep up. I ended up with an ankle and foot injury(hyper-extended ankle and broken toes - not p90x related) around 2 months in and went back to square one. Just trying to get started back up now. I've seen the results though. My coworkers were able to stick with it(the kicker is just learning to eat properly more than anything else), and quite frankly, they're all ripped now. My boss who wasn't even that overweight to begin with(or at least didn't look it) dropped around 55lbs or so in around 6 months I think and clearly packed on a considerable amount of muscle mass. Not exactly 3 months, but not bad at all.

    I'm a P90X grad. Gave me the results I wanted. They give you the tools, but you have to "bring it."

    On topic: The reason I did the program was in order to handle my shotgun better. It feels so much lighter, now.

    I completed it once this spring, lost over 15 lbs (175 to 160) and increased my pull ups about 100% in the process... I highly recommend it. I am going to be doing it again soon.

    I did P90X to increase my endurance for my grueling Black Belt exam earlier this year...it worked I didn't pass out.

    Have it, haven't completed it yet but will give it another try. It is the one workout video I've found that's "OK" for a guy to do without being a pansy. And it's kind of humorous too.

    My sister is a former elite runner and now owns a chain of running stores, and she loves P90X.

    Most people buy it with good intentions, but wimp out somewhere in the beginning. Those that I know who have stuck with it have had good results, but your own motivation is key.

    That goes with any diet/execise program. Of course, motivation and determination are key factors in any human activity.
    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!

    I have friends who got P90X last year and it has turned them into workout AMIMALS. Me, I've just turned into a gun nut.

    For them it worked. They are both seriously in shape but could not shoot their way out of a paper bag.

    Okay, so how old are all you "Bring it on" people? I'm a late 60's guy with a broken body who watched a few episodes (not mine) to see if it were possible. My body could not begin to tolerate anything beyond the early chapter warmups. Perhaps as a clue to you young ones out there, don't keep throwing your body in front of the bus in your careers - it ain't worth it.

    Absolutely ! I wonder if they have a P90X "Lite" version.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
