"P90X"

Any of you use or have used this program. I just started this week doing the lean program. What kind of results did you get. I am doing the workout @4:15 AM following the eating program (lifestyle) as close as possible and plan to hit the treadmill 3-4 days per week after work to add a little more.

1. "RE: P90X"

I've been doing it religously for almost 2 months. No six pack yet, but getting there. I watch my eating too. Although I have been working out hard during the off-season, I have still gained about 12-15 lbs. since my low last summer. I'm sure it's all muscle....LOL. Really though, since doing the P90X I have gained some muscle mass and much more tone.

I like the program. After doing some of the exercises for nearly two months though, they do get a bit boring. I mix it up a little by throwing in new stuff here and there.

I really need to throw a 3-4 hour hard hike into the routine each week though, I just haven't yet. Those long, hard hikes burn away fat fast.

2. "RE: P90X"

I just started a week and a half ago. I've been debating trying to get in some running or hiking to help me in the fall but I just don't have the time. 1 1/2 hour work outs are stretching it when I work 14 hour days, 6 days a week.

My plan is to hit the program as hard as I can for the first round. Then for round two I'm going to add in some hikes and running to better build my cardio for hunting.

So far I've already lost 8 pounds. In all fairness though, I gained 10 after last season's hunts so I figured I would lose those rather quick.

My wife bought the "extreme" version for us. It kicked my but, and I honestly don't have time for 2-1/2 hour work outs so I quit doing it.

Mix it up with insanity. It has faster paced workouts, and will shed the goo quicker. It's also takes about half as long.

I'm feeling the winter in the waistline, but haven't been able to do much the last few months. Too much travel and busted toes.

If a guy started doing both right now he'd be an animal come scouting season.

Insanity is crazy good for cardio and increasing endurance.

They both get old after awhile though.

One of these days somebody is going to do one tailored to the hunter.

Founder should take up the challenge and make us a monster muleys workout video- just as long as he hires a couple hotties to help him.

I did the complete workout last winter and felt better then I ever had, until I hit the mountain. I didn't feel a huge increase in my ability to hike the hills. That being said I am doing it again and modifying a few of the workouts to include hiking seeing if that will increase my hiking stamina. Stick with it I think it is well woth the time

I have been doing the program since Jan. 1 just finishing up month 2. I have lost 16 pounds and really enjoy it. I don't follow it exactly. I hate the yoga so I go hiking for a couple hours that day. I enjoy most of the other workouts. They are tough but get easier with each week.

Some of my friends have used PX90 with good results. The problem I see with it is it gets old doing the hour or so of workout that doesn't change much. It isn't sustainable. I use a program called crossfit. I have been doing it now for about 4 years and have seen amazing gains in my physical fitness. The daily workouts use pretty basic equipment, and the excercises can transfer to hunting and other everyday activities. It is high intensity done for short durations. A typical workout lasts about 20 minutes.

If you question the kind of shape you could get in youtube some of their workouts and then try one, it will kill you. The website is www.crossfit.com. I have been using their stuff for about 4 years now an love it. My buddies and I hit the gym and after warming up, working out, and then picking ourselves up off the floor when able are usually back in the truck in less than an hour, sometimes much less.

The daily workout is free. There is a video archive to help you see how to do any unknown excercises. Remember that these workouts are designed to challenge even the most fit, so scaling to your ability is encouraged. My first crossfit workout I ever did took me about 45 minutes and about killed me, today I can do it in a little under six minutes. Some people do it in less than 2. The workouts change daily, sometimes a year will go by before I do the same workout, so you don't get bored. Sorry for the ramble, I just can't say enough good about this program. Send me a message if you have any questions.

I have done the P90X, too long, too boring, too much was left up to me.

I've been a Crossfitter for over 3 years now, it's the only thing I've found that holds my interest. Like was mentioned above, it constantly changes. We have a Crossfit gym where we have all the equipment, can do Olympic lifts, sled pull, you name it.

If you are just looking to lose weight, working out is only a small part of it. You've got to eat good, clean, healthy food. Eliminate foods with processed sugar and eat very litte breads and you'll see a drastic diference.

Whatever you do, make sure that you do it correctly. Getting hurt will hamper your road to fitness.

I like P90X and I like crossfit. Both are pretty darn sound in theory and in practice. Having been a strength and conditioning coach at the pro and college level, I was skeptical at first...but, they are really, really good programs for what hunters need. And, they are not bad for a baseline athletic program.
