The best workout DVDs I have ever owned- P90X

Recommended Posts

Isn't there an option where you can turn off Tony?? Or is it just the music?

 

Although honestly he hasn't gotten to the annoying part yet - just when he adds his own comments. I could live with him just saying "Do your vinyasa....now into downward dog...lift the left heel into the air....swing it through."

 

Cause I don't look at the tv the whole time... so the verbal cues are good. But his commentary is awful!!

 

Not the worst I've heard though - its the preppy cheerleader types on other DVD's that get me!

Yeah Tony get's annoying, especially three months in when you're mouthing to yourself his lines you've heard 1,000 times... FI and have conversations back and forth of his lines... I prefer the scary yelling personally :)

 

Has anyone tried the $120 Shakeology drink? They keep selling me on it until I remember how expensive it is

I'm so glad I've found others who also have P90X!! . . .I bought it last year and did it strong for 30 days, but lost my steam. After reading everyone's posts about it, it's got me re-motivated to get started again!! Superman-Banana!

I did yoga today and loved it!! I feel so limber and streched out :-) So far haven't noticed any weight off the scale, but stomach is feeling tighter. I'm not following the diet 100%, just limiting carbs for the AM and eliminating junk (should be soo easy now that the holiday dinners are coming up!! LOL). I am used to sweating a bit more at the gym with running and classes, but I can't afford to renew my membership right now so gotta keep it up with Tony and his wonderful commentary muscle.gifmuscle.gif

 

tomorrow on to legs!!

sigh... I have totally fallen off the wagon. I love doing it, I just don't have the time!! I'd do it before work in the morning - but I work at 7 am! And there is no way I am getting my lazy arse out of bed before 5 am!

 

There def. needs to be more hours in a day.

I agree, more hours needed in the day, especially with planning a wedding!

 

I get up @ 5am every day so there's absolutely no way I could workout in the morning either, the guy in the cubicle next to me works out @ 3am and I have no idea how he does it.

 

I have been doing alright with my Insanity, on 3 days last week but this week will be 6 days (for the first time in a month I think) but now I'm on a mission since my BD photos are in a month.

 

Next week is my recovery week from Insanity so I'm going to use it to do P90X with you ladies!

I hear you guys on not wanting to get up earlier!! I value my sleep waaay too much for that!! LOL I stick to the after work workouts.

 

 

I'm also not feeling the burn as much as I thought I would...I just finished the first week of classic, and honestly I was expecting to feel it more. Don't get me wrong, my arms felt it after the first day but since than it really hasn't been too bad.

 

I will keep doing it for sure, but once the Christmas maddness and expenses are over FI and I are gonna renew our gym memberships and do a mix of both. (one major advantage I like about the videos is doing them at home is that is saves so much time!!)

 

I haven't done the cardio yet...is that one hard?

Insanity is all high intensity cardio and training intervals, no weights. After P90X I wanted something totally different and boy did I get it. Insanity is harder than anything I've ever done. It's also only 60 days which intrigued me as I'm doing my BD shoot in January and I had 2 months at the time to get into shape. I'm about to complete week 3 of this and FINALLY last night I had my breakthrough and things started getting easier. Insanity causes you to push yourself far beyond you ever thought you could go.

Bholthof - I know what you mean, in the middle of P90X and planning my wedding I was planning my best friends bridal shower, bachelorette party in Vegas and helping her with the wedding pretty much the entire month of May and into June. So just make up the time and try not to worry too much, you'll get back to it soon :)
Do you like insanity? We bought P90X two years ago (I think) and we stuck with it for about 6-8 weeks, I felt really good when I did it, of course DH lost weight fast and I didn't, as usual.

But I like to do more cardio and I felt like P90X was too much weights for me, I'm going to check out intensity, but I was wondering if that's why you decided to switch.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
