Why you might want to stay clear of p90x
There is no denying the fact that Tony Horton’s p90x is an incredible workout program and has exploded in popularity over the last several years. You can easily read success story after success story of people who have put themselves through the intense physical and mental workout and have come out with amazing results. It’s so tempting to jump on the bandwagon and do the program.
I was one of those people. That said, I would like to be honest that this program is definitely not for everyone. If you are thinking about choosing p90x as a workout plan, consider the following.
It takes more dedication than any other program, period.
Be prepared to give up between an hour and two hours a day working out, and a considerable amount of time learning and mastering the nutrition guide and cooking meals. Missing a workout during the program can be so detrimental to the success of the program. The p90x workout schedule is not an easy thing to master.
You need to incorporate the nutritional plan
If you are thinking of just going along with the exercises without adhering to the nutrition guide you are not going to see the results. If you ask anyone who has successfully completed p90x and has seen the results that so many people strive for, you will notice that they have all stayed true to the nutritional information.
It takes serious dedicated – you’ll find every reason to give up
It’s not easy. It is a very simple program, that is, it’s not overly complex and if you have the time and dedication to do it you will get through it. But I will reiterate, it is not easy.
You’ll need the space and gear
This is important, you’ll need to be able to clear your living room or recreation room in order to do these workouts, especially plyometrics. You may need to purchase some gear, such as a pull up bar, yoga pants and yoga blocks, among other things.
