Listen up! There are too many hacked, illegal copies of the P90X workout floating around there. People are getting the DVD's and thinking they'll be [...]
Too many people like to think about putting their health and fitness on the priority list AFTER the holidays. I often think that the tradition of New Year’s Resolutions is an awful one, since it gives us an excuse to postpone getting healthy till after all the bad eating habits have run their course, and then make of what should be a marathon a sprint as people try to undo all the damage one over the Fall and Winter months in but a few weeks. So don’t be like everybody else: get in shape today!
Everybody is talking about P90X. From mom's in supermarket aisles to the local fitness trainers, from folks watching late night TV to the latest chatter on the internet as people discover ever more success stories. P90X is without a doubt the most successful at-home workout in the country, selling millions of copies and followed scrupulously by people everywhere. From celebrities like Demi Moore and Ashton Kutchner to quarterbacks and NBA players, P90X has become ubiquitous in our culture. Odds are you're ready to give it a shot, but if so, what do you need to maximize your gains and ensure you have the best returns possible?
If you've been around the P90X block a couple of times, then you'll have your favorite workouts and the ones you dread. For example, I love the Arms & Shoulders, Chest Shoulders & Triceps and Shoulders & Arms. Not so hot on Plyometrics, Legs & Back and the Ab Ripper, but what can you do? What you realize though is that with practice, with time, you start to really love certain exercises, certain moves that get you pumped, that you work extra hard at because you get that slight degree of extra pleasure doing it. So this blog post is a round up of MY favorite P90X Workout moves, and while I know these won't appeal to everybody, feel free to chime in with what gets you psyched!
Some people are just crazy. Or suicidal. Or want to lose weight with extreme prejudice. Some people simply love an extreme challenge, or feel that if they're not pushing the very bleeding limit of any program, they're not giving it their all. For all of those, the extreme, the crazy, the fanatical and the determined, P90X Doubles is the way to go. What is it exactly? It's a way of doubling the intensity and workload of the regular P90X workout.
So it's Friday, and I'm finally back at work. These past few days have been a whirlwind of P90X, meeting people, discussing fitness, promoting Beachbody and having a blast. Our team managed to pull everything off with smooth efficiency, and we celebrated last night with a large dinner, everybody at once proud of all our work and glad that it was over. Who would have thought sponsoring and running such events would be so tiring? When the adrenaline finally wears off, you're left thinking: Wow. How did I just do all that?
Tomorrow Tony Horton is coming to FIU's 2010 Recreation Expo, where he'll be holding events all day, leading workouts, inspiring people and just being his regular awesome self. Extreme Fitness Results is proud to sponsor his appearance here, and we'll all be present to both talk to people and make the most of the moment.
Tony Horton has based his P90X workout on the premise of 'Muscle Confusion', in which the 3 month workout is broken down into different phases, each containing a different variety of moves. The idea is that constantly changing the nature of your workout will help you avoid the 'Plateau Effect', where your body grows accustomed to the nature of the workout being asked of it, and stops growing as quickly. Is this true? Is there science behind this claim? In today's blog post, we take a closer look.
