But, I still think it's great b/c it's only about 45 minutes compared to the other workouts which take at least an hour or an hour and 20 minutes (when you add Ab X). So, I tend to get excited for the Cardio X day. I am getting ready to start Phase 3 of my second round of P90X and this round I have been doing the classic version, so instead of CardioX, I get to do Plyo. Plyo is rough and will definitely get your heart going, so I would substitute it for the Cardio X if you think it would help you or you could just do the classic with your DH. But, I HATE the Yoga (prob b/c it doesn't move fast and it takes forever), so I substitute every Yoga day for Cardio X.

    As far as Turbo Jam, it is a lot of fun, but it doesn't have any weight training. There is one video that incorporates weights (Turbo Sculpt) but I don't think it compares to P90X in that way.

    For those of you that do P90X don't you just want to strangle that blonde, Drea? She has the most perfect abs I have ever seen...drives me crazy! Especially, because after almost two 90 day sessions back to back, I am nowhere near her or where I thought I would be. I feel that my body looks better and I know I am getting a great workout, but I thought I would have those abs and super defined arms....anyone else feel that way?
    Oh good, I'm glad I'm not the only one that didn't really like the cardio workout!

    We did yoga today, we put it in and saw that it was 1 1/2 hours!! I think it was a good workout, but honestly I'd much rather be doing cardio. But I figured I should at least try and do yoga more just for the stretching and flexibility.

    I do agree that turbosculpt is not anywhere near as hard as P90X, but its a nice change sometimes.

    I hate drea and her damn rolls, the first day I saw them do those, I just stood there because I was so afraid I was going to whack my head on the floor when I tried to do these and she's jumping up like a cheerleader doing all these fancy things. If I could have I would have punched her, lol!

      FI and I started the p90x DVD's this AM. We are following the program so we did the Chest/Back/Ab Ripper.

      those Ab exercises are HARD!

      Is anyone else following the nutrition plan?

        I want to do this but I don't have that kind of time. And I don't own weights so I would have to get spend more money on weights. And then I'd be scared I'm not doing it properly and therefore not seeing results.

        But it seems like a good workout from what you guys are saying.

          We're really not following the nutrition plan. We are trying to eat more protein and less carbs, since that is sort of the direction there plan goes in, and I do feel better when I eat more protein and less carbs.

          But I'm just trying to stick to WW as far as knowing how much to eat.

          I did plyo this morning, what a way to wake up! Have fun tomorrow!

              Plyo was the workout I dreaded the most. It was incredible though- after 3 months, it became a lot easier so you can definitely tell when you improve.

                It's amazing how I can already feel myself getting better at the videos, lifting more weight, doing more reps, being able to keep up with all of the exercises. It's great, I'm so glad we got these!

                      whoo whoo! I love turbo jam too. Not as much of a fan of hip hop abs.
