P90X: For those who want to bounce nickels off their abs.

November 3, 2009

It’s two in the morning. You should be either studying or sleeping, but here you are, on your couch trying to find something to watch on TV. Shamwow. Click. Classic movie. Click. A room full of sweat dripping men and women in tight spandex outfits doing one handed push ups and blasting away with plyometric sets. Click… wait, what?

It’s P90X, a series of 12 sweat-inducing, muscle-pounding workouts, designed to transform puny, unworthy bodies into buns of steel in just 90 days. Three months to transform a body P90X says it can do, initially seemed like a complete fake. And then I seen the before and after pictures… amazing. mind boggling. fantismo.
I, myself have been tempted to purchase the P90X set, despite its price at $139.80 plus tax. But just to be on the safe side I spoke with a couple of guys to give me the 411.

How long have you guys been using P90X?
Chris: for about 2 weeks now
Dustin: I just got done with the first work out.


How did you find out about it?
Chris: My friend told me about it. I was tired of running and when i work out, I need direction, or someone telling me what to do, so I tried it out.
Dustin: Chris actually told me about it.

How intense are the workouts and for how long?
Chris: It’s as intense as you make it. It’s like with any other work outs, the more effort you put in, the more you get out of it.
Dustin: Each workout is an hour long and focuses on different body parts. Today I did the arms and shoulders and it raped me. I had to take a lot of breaks, but I finished it.

Is buying P90X worth the cost?
Chris: Yeah, otherwise I’d be pissed that I wasted my money.
Dustin: What he said. It’s a really good workout.
