Has anyone tried this, or completed the program? 90 day program consisting of high intensity exercises. The exercises vary i.e. weights, cardio, plyometrics, power yoga etc. There are 13 dvds in all. Looks awesome and exactly how I like to workout - lots of variation, hard work and SWEAT!

Let me know if you have - Thanks Smile

Hi aplomb,

I'm currently doing the p90x "lean" program and am finishing up on my 3rd week. So far, its fantastic! I have nothing negative to say about it at all.

It IS hard work and you'll find yourself drenched in sweat after almost every workout. My favorite workouts are the Core Synergistics and Ab Ripper X (so far). Least fav so far is yoga...mainly because I am not flexible and it is an hour and a half long (but at the same time it teaches you patience and poise).

The program basically has you do a pattern of calisthenics one day + abs, then cardio the next day, then calisthenics +abs, then cardio.... etc. I think it helps decrease the chances of burn out or boredom.

If you do plan on doing it, don't be afraid to cross-train!...do something else once a week (aka, hiking, jogging, biking, etc). I do this because I have ADD when it comes to working out, so the more variations in my workout, the better.

Good luck if you do end up trying out the program! I'd say to definitely go for it.

Hey there, thanks heaps for your reply.

Yes I'm looking forward to it and love the fact that it has such a variety of exercises. I haven't received my box yet which is just as well since I've only just got my arm out of a cast. I hope to start though and will leave out anything to taxing on this for a while.

It sounds intense too and was one of the reasons I chose it, plus I like to sweat heaps! I do hot yoga as part of my workout regime so it should be ideal. I also plan to cross train as I hike up hills with my dog quite abit so will definitely keeps this up ( my dog would be gutted if I stopped anyway...haha.

Thanks again, it was encouraging to read your comments and all the best with the rest of the program.

I'm finishing up Week 12 so officially I have only 1 week left after this week. It has been a fantastic journey thus far and I would recommend it to anyone who is serious and in already decent shape. I've lost over 35 lbs since day 1 and I feel in the best shape since my college days some 20 years ago.

Good Luck ... you'll love it!
