P90X – What is it?
P90X is a 90 Day DVD Home Fitness Program created by Tony Horton ”for those seeking a higher level of fitness”.
The truth is, that the P90X Workout Program is much more than that…, it’s a life transforming experience. Let me explain. Everyone who starts the P90X program has their own individual specific fitness goals, and at the forefront of the program, that’s definetely where the focus starts. As you watch and listen to Tony Horton during the P90X workout periods, you can genuinely sense that he is sincere in his effort, to help transform everyone into confident, conscious, healthy well beings. No matter your weight, no matter your age, and no matter if you’re working out on a prosthetic leg, one of Tony’s reoccurring messages, is to “Do your Best, and Forget the Rest!”. As you continue to advance within the program, and you enter the 2nd & 3rd Phases, you start seeing the results, of all the hard work and effort that you put into the program, and what’s even more incredible, is that you start to feel empowered by the fact that you can not only start an “extreme” workout program like P90X, but that you can actually complete it!
P90X for many, can be like completing the trek up Mt’ Everest; it’s extremely difficult and painful at times, but once you get to the top, the view is incredible, and the sense of accomplishment that one feels is surreal. The experience makes us each realize and believe that we are capable of anything that we set our hearts and mind to…, that folks is what P90X is really about!
And I have no doubts, that P90X2 will do the same…., that’s why it works!
The P90X Workout Program comes with 12 of the most comprehensive and demanding workouts available anywhere today; each designed with a specific fitness objective.
The Workouts include:
Chest & Back; Plyometrics; Shoulders & Arms; Yoga X; Legs & Back; Kenpo X; X Stretch; Core Synergistics; Chest, Shoulders & Triceps; Back & Biceps; Cardio X; & Ab Ripper X
P90X – Who’s it for?
P90X is exactly what it implies, an extreme home fitness program designed for individuals that are in top physical condition and health. P90X doesn’t discriminate as far as weight or age, but it is an intense workout program that should not be attempted for someone who doesn’t meet the minimum fitness requirements, there are other less intense programs from Beachbody that are available. Those who have a history of health or medical issues, or suffer from knee, shoulder, or spinal (back or neck) problems, should consult their primary physician before attempting.
If you’re not sure that P90X is for you, there are other alternatives, it may be better to start with a less extreme home fitness program such as Power 90 or the 10 Minute Trainer Workout Program. Once you’ve completed one of the lesser extreme workout programs, then you’ll build a good a base and be more prepared to tackle the demands of P90X.
P90X – What can you expect?
With P90X, you can expect to get in the best shape of your life – guaranteed!
With P90X you will develop and acquire skills, coordination, and flexibility that you only dreamed of.
The important thing to recognize is that each of us are in varying stages of our personal health fitness. We all come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and strengths, so the expectations and goals for each of us will be different. P90X understands and recognizes these difference and was designed with that principal in mind, the end goal is to ensure that each of us achieve our personal fitness goals.
If you follow the P90X program, then YOU will see amazing and incredible results, the program is built on a solid foundation; from intense weight training, to extreme yoga, you’ll experience a variety of truly unique and equally challenging exercises that will slim, strengthen, tone, firm, and sculpt your body.
With P90X you can push your body and take it to the limits, and ideally to where you want it to go. P90X is remarkable from the sense that it is unlike any other exercise program ever created.
P90X – Nutrition
With P90X, you need to eat right, or really, don’t bother. Your diet, and the food that you choose to eat will play a vital role in maximizing your results, and your workouts. Maintaining a healthy and nutritionally sound diet with P90X is critical, as it supports the foundation and principal of the program. The P90X program can, and will propel you into the best shape of your life…, but it requires you to concentrate on eating the right foods, if you keep eating junk, then you won’t see the results that you’re looking for.
The P90X Nutrition Plan is comprehensive, yet extremely easy to follow. You’ll have lots of options and choices, and surprisingly there are many delicious foods to choose from. The P90X program isn’t so much about eliminating calories, and taking a crash diet approach to your nutritional needs, but rather it’s about making the right food choices to provide your body with the fuel that it needs for maximum performance.
Shakeology is also a great way to compliment your daily nutritional diet, and the Results & Recovery drink is a great way to provide your muscles with the fuel and nourishment that they need after your workouts.
Life After P90X?
Once you complete this amazing and incredible workout program, the next question is, “what’s next”?
It’s a fair question, right? You don’t want to get into the best shape of your life, and then see it all disappear! It’s important to note that the P90X Workout Program, is meant to serve as the foundation for your fitness well being. It’s not P365X, that would be incredibly difficult and unrealistic, to think that you could incorporate an extreme fitness program, every single day of the year. But what P90X allows you to do, is take the knowledge that you’ve gained, and implement a “life” fitness program that makes sense for you, and your schedule.
Some suggestions include:
Restart the P90X Workout Program (after a few weeks of much needed rest), but this time insert rest days in between all the workouts, that way you can still continue to keep your body in its’ ideal state, but not punish your muscles on a daily basis. Remember you’ve trained and conditioned your body, in a sense actually “shocked” it, now you can implement a less extreme approach to your overall fitness goals.
You can restart the P90X Home Fitness Program, but reduce the duration of the workouts in half! Most of the P90X workouts last approximately an hour; you can cut them down to approximately 30 minutes, and still fuel your body for continued muscle growth.
And for those of you that are looking for the next challenge, then you can always tackle the next X, that’s right folks, the P90X2 Workout Program has been officially released, so if your a graduate of the P90X Program, then this is the next step on your climb to the mountain!
