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?

If your'e really interested in doing a ton of pullups, here's a program:

Body weight definitely plays a part, though.

Anything you can do to improve your cardio is a plus. If possible, I would suggest swimming. Head to the Y, and that's something you and your wife can do together.

man, I remember when I was a competitive gymnast, our 'strength conditioning' was after practice; shit like 3 sets of 25 overhand pushups, 3 sets underhand, 3 sets of 25+ of dips on the P-bars, 3 sets of regular pushups; 3 sets of the triangle pushups; mountain climbers on a big 3" foam pad; 3 sets of 1 minute L holds......6 days a week fo 30 minutes after a 3-4 hour practice..

I'd die now if I even attempted that.
our coach wanted us to be strong with our body weight, and not so much 'ripped'. though I was lol. lol. my shoulders are still very broad; and my lats are still large. being 16 with a gymnast body ruled lol

The best way to train yourself to do more pullups is doing a bunch of pullups. Do as many as you can (if it's 2, that's fine) and then do some more by jumping off the ground to get up and then lowering yourself slowly. You can also do some assisted pullups with a resistance band.

Yeah. That should be sufficient. As you go through the program, you'll figure out what works for you. Don't be afraid to tweak things. Just remember, you'll get out of it what you put into it.

Ideally, you'll have more energy once you get going with the program and you'll want to start adding other physical activities to your daily routine. Again, figure out what you enjoy and what works for you.

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.
The marketing is gimmicky, and of course plays into people's desire to want results right now, but beyond that, I think it's all you need in a workout/nutrition plan. I didn't stick with it the first time I tried it, because I was caught up in doing 6 days/week, finishing each workout, completing it in 90 days.... and granted, I did have a goal of getting back to playing hockey, I just don't have the passion for it. I enjoy it more now that I'm simply trying to workout a few times a week, and I've started to form the habit of thinking "it's time to workout" and simply doing it, as opposed to fighting with myself each day.

In the end though, it's all about doing what you want to do... I'll skip certain things in those videos, not do some of them, modify some... make it enjoyable.

I did the ab ripper x the first time and almost went to the hospital the next day because I though I tore something. Turns out I was just really out of shape. P90X is an awesome workout.

The hardest part of any new workout plan is just getting started and getting past the first week. Good luck with whatever method you choose.

I think I'm just going to go for it. If my wife wants to participate, fine. if she wants to do her own thing, that's fine too. Hopefully if I'm seeing results, it will be motivation for her to do it as well.

my biggest challenge will be learning how to eat right etc.

I'm going to hit the treadmill this week to sort of dust off the cobwebs.
and or, take the dogs for a walk.

My wife and I did it together. We had very different goals, but we did the workouts together and loved it. It was something we could do together & talk about a lot. We helped each other stay on track & not get lazy & skip workouts.

She went on to run a marathon and now we've both been doing crossfit.

The nutrition plan will be a LOT easier if you're both on board. It takes a little bit of planning to make sure you have the right things in your house when it's time to cook.
