So I just bought the P90 DVD set. What equipment will I need? I bought a door frame chin up bar, dumbells, and elastic bands. Do I need anything else?

A Chair or Bench of some kind, some yoga blocks (if necessary) and about 90 minutes a day, six days a week.

I might be doing some work for Tony... while going through files I became very interested in this system. Wondering if it works as well as he claims?

It works if you can follow it with the discipline it requires.

Rinse, lather, repeat for almost every decent workout program. Hershel Walker was a stud athlete on situps and pushups. Kareem Abdul Jabar did yoga, karate, and jump rope.

Discipline.

You can lose a lot of weight doing ashtanga yoga 3x a week and walking every day. TONS of weight.

You can lose a lot of weight consuming 1400 calories a day and sitting on your ass.

If weight loss is someone's sole goal, exercise alone won't get them there.

Very true. It's not a shock that a 6days/week, 90 minute program will yield some results.

Let me ask a question...Is this suitable for someone of moderate fitness? I'm not in that great of shape, but I'm not a total couch potato either. Most of the people you see on the materials are already fairly fit and are toning up. Can a moderately soft individual use this plan without killing himself?

From my understanding 6 days per week, 1 hour per day with 1.5 hours on the Yoga. Iam going to add deadlifts in the routine because I want to throw in the Highland games again and need that extra pure pulling movement.

I am at 217 @29%BF :) Need to drop to 15%BF, will let the pure 'weight' take care of its self if the BF is in order. I wonder if after two cycles of P90x I can be down to 15%?

Joe, go to beach body and look at the programs. P90x is really out there, it is 'hard core'. They have some programs not nearly as bad that you can start with. P90 from what I understand is the 30-40 min 'lite' version of P90x.

Bottom line though, you can't outwork a bad diet.

Cut our simple carbs, try and grab low calorie snacks and high fiber.

Once you start making these changes, you'll be shocked at how easy it is.

Worked for me.

I dropped 35 lb to 165 lb by jotting down what I ate, paid attention to the recommended daily values for carbs, proteins, fats and so on. I reduced my caloric intake a bunch and I am not chronically hungry at all. I consume less than 2000 cal per day. I'm active as usual - no changes there; I don't do exercise sessions or lift or anything like that - I walk 2 to 3 miles a day according to the pedometer I put on my belt...just activity throughout the normal day.

I keep a daily spreadsheet of what I eat. Just like with my written stuff - I see what I've eaten, and plan on less (occasionally more) intake the next day. I do know that eating out must be a rarity. You have to be judicious. One McD sausage biscuit is a killer: I did buy one this week - it was delicious:

http://www.nutrition...cdonalds/6268/2

My wife 'n me go out for a Saturday breakfast, at the local Frisch's chain. Our pleasant treat. I order their #3 - fried egg, 3 bacon, 2 toast, hash browns (grill-fried, not deep fried). I cut the white from the egg, and give my lady one of the bacon . She has 2 eggs, no yolk same as me and dry rye toast. My "big", once a week, very satisfying meal is in the main, less than than one McD's sausage biscuit.

I like a good steak as well as most do - but I keep the portion at 4 oz, a 100 grams or so. I savor every bite. My wife is returning for a few days from attending to her dear sister's grave illness. She's eaten sparse I'm sure (she sports 115 lb). So we both look forward to a few 3000+ calorie days. Because we can afford them.

Watching the intake works.


But not for all, JA. We have gone over this in the past - I believe there are folks that try as they might, are predisposed to being obese. That's their genetics - my take. I know you disagree.

P90x is a good program. I don't know anything about body fat percentages,but if you put in the time and effort P90x will make you stronger and leaner.
