P90X - Does it Work?

Ok;. So Im getting to the point where Im seeing the gestation of moobs. Ive had the love handles for a few years.
In 2006, I remember seeing the scale and it reading 215. I remember telling my wife, holy crap. I weight 215!

Well, shit. Now Im probably 240. Im about 61 and carry the weight pretty well, in that Im not all floppy/flabby.

Ive done the Couch to 5K twice, and had success. Im thinking about doing it yet again, and at the conclusion of the program, looking at P90X.
Id like to do as much as I can from home. If the P90X program produces results, I may invest in a gym membership at that point.

Has anyone used this, and if so, how did you like it. Did you see results?

Don't worry about finding the "best" plan. You aren't training for the Olympics. Start by doing anything. You can always tweak things as you go.

That's how my wife and I started, we just walked around the block. Looking back I am amazed at how much effort it took just to do that 5 years ago.

Now I am do interval training, running for 1 min, walking for 2 min and repeating the process. Burns a ton of calories in 30 min.

P90X worked great for me. I was in a similar situation 3-4 years ago - 6' 1", and tipped the scales at 245 one day. Decided enough was enough, and started P90X shortly thereafter. I hit it real hard - diligent on the schedule, and even moreso on the diet. I based my diet on the P90X nutrition plan, dropping down the next lower caloric level to encourage weight loss. I stayed under 1800cal/day religiously, if I remember correctly, often a few hundred lower.

It was tough at first, and I hated life that first week or so, but stuck with it. At the end of the 90 days, I was down 30-35lbs (can't remember exactly). It also kicked me into a much healthier lifestyle in general. I've rubber banded around a bit since then, but have continued to lose on the whole - saw 179 on my scale the other day, which was pretty exciting.

I say do it, and go straight to P90X. Just commit to the whole thing - diet is huge.

I did tobada for a while (three minute jog, then eight intervals of thirty second balls-to-the-wall sprints followed by ninety seconds of jogging and then three minutes of jogging at the end). It was hell, but I got incredibly fast results from it.

I stopped because between that, my boxing, and my long distance running, it was just too much. I may start it up again this Spring and not run long distance quite as often (focusing on longer runs less often).

As far as diet goes, I really hate "dieting" because it seems so temporary. I've been doing paleo (well, close to paleo because I still eat beans) for over a year now. That has simply become the way we eat at my house and it works for us. We are "good" about 80% of the time or more and that made it a pretty easy lifestyle change.

Whatever you pick, good luck!
i eat paleo as well...love it

Fifty pounds is two cases of beer plus a twelve pack (including the weight of the cans and packaging). Try lugging that around for a few minutes to get an idea of how much better you will feel just from dropping twenty pounds, and you should be motivated to get up off the couch.

Go for a brisk walk of a mile to start...just do something. That will burn calories and keep you from eating out of boredom (major problem for me).

well shit. that's a damned good point.

that sounds great. That's right about what I want to expect/accomplish. Then work on gradually getting down to like 180.

I could not agree more with this. I don't want to knock the P90X or anything else that works for someone but I have always just viewed these as a gimmick that people never stay with and therefore any results are temporary.

Not that I am in the shape or health I was in at one point I still argue that exercise and proper nutirition are just a way of life you have to adapt too or otherwise you won't stick with it.

This is why I have never followed some fancy diet or exercise program. I don't want to do anything that makes me feel like I "have" to do it. I want to do it because I "want" to do it. these typses of programs seem to produce a lot of people who burn themselves out fast and never stick with anything.

I'm 47, have been doing P90X for a while now. At 6'5, I started off weighing about 238. I'm now down to about 216-218. I've lost extra weight I didn't know I had. My cardio kicks ass and I feel great. It's certainly a nutritional item as well, so you have to follow good dietary measures to really see the results.

There is a lot of fail in this post. Why would you spout off about something you've never done? Why do you think people "never stick with" it? Why do you assume people view these workouts as a chore that they "have" to do and not something they "want" to do?

Biggest question:

If you're not in good shape and you've never done P90X or any fancy, gimmick exercise programs, why did you offer up advice in this thread?

Nice.
I think I might pull the trigger on this and start it the day after the SB. I drink way too much beer anyway; and there aren't any sports on TV I care about for a solid 6 months.

No excuses. I'm just 'tired' of being a fatty. I don't really have any hobbies any more (well, shooting wasy my hobby until damn ammo prices nearly doubled); and if I've gained this much in 5-6 years, I can't imagine what I'll be like in another 5-6. I'll be 36 in July, but I feel much older in terms of joints, fatigue, etc.

**** it. I might even hit the treadmill after work today. Plus my wifre really needs to lose weight (I suspect about 60lbs based on what the doc said when checking up on her MS etc); maybe it will give her incentive to do it as well.

Good luck!

It's tough, and you will probably want to quit after a couple of sessions. Don't. Stick with it and just do what you can. Eventually, your cardio will get better and will help you stay energized enough through the sessions. Give it a full 30 days and I promise you will see the difference.

This can't be. All CP wives/girlfriends are 11/10 on the classic 10 point scale without any excess pounds.

On another note, I recently started P90x as well. I've lost about 15 pounds in a little under 2 months as well as gained some muscle. This is without following the nutrition plan religiously (although i've been eating pretty healthy in general). It's impossible to follow the nutrition plan exactly for me, unfortunately, as I spend a lot of time on the road for work.

I'm 6'2 and started at about 220.

I take it the P90x thing will be sufficient; in that any treadmill work would not be necessary at all, correct?

...I'm sure the program will beat my ass like a mule anyway lol
