P90x Is It Worth A Try?


Starting in August, I decided to try P90x after hearing many positive responses. There were a few workouts that I had never tried before, so I was ready to experiment. To begin, I am a 22 year old male that was in pretty good shape before I began the program. I decided to stick to my normal diet, which is high protein and high fiber, and not stick to the P90x nutrition plan.

I jumped straight into the workouts as if I had done them 100 times before. The first week I did better than expected. I got through Plyometrics and Yoga despite never attempting them before. Yoga was extremely challenging for me, but I felt better than ever afterwards. If you’ve never tried P90x Yoga, it is over 1 hour and 30 minutes long. I went on and completed the first 3 weeks of the program. I noticed after the first week, some workouts became harder, while others became less challenging.

Plyometrics is ridiculously tiring and punishing if you are not used to jump training. I play a decent amount of basketball and other sports that involve jumping, and I could barely get through it. My heart rate was through the roof and I became light-headed quite often. I soon realized that P90x Cardio was a suitable substitute for me. Other workouts such as Shoulders and Arms, Legs and Back, Chest and Back, Yoga, Kenpo, and Ab Ripper X all became easier as the weeks passed. Of course, there were days where your targeted muscle group was still sore and you had to power through it, but overall they became easier. After 3 weeks, I already had results. After the rest week, I went on to complete the following 3 weeks. Again, even better results.

I was fine all the way to week 7. I started skipping a few workouts and my school workload became larger. That was when I really stopped the program despite being close to finishing. I am happy I gave P90x a try, and there is a good possibility I will try it again. The results I achieved in just 7 weeks were very impressive. I am still doing some of the workouts here and there such as Kenpo (very fun), Yoga, and Stretching. If you are up to a great physical and mental challenge, P90x is a great program to try.

Let me know how your experience goes!
