My issue with p90x is time, the workouts are too long for me. An hour of full-body strength training would be realistic, but you don't need to work on 2 muscle groups for so long. (And do you really need to work for an hour on your core? I think not!) So I cut them down and I still get results - they have a tendency to do a series of exercises and then repeat that series a second time, before moving on to the next series. I usually just complete the 1st set then skip to the next series. This cuts the workout in half.

Not sure how advanced you are, but I definitely prefer Plyometrics over Cardio or Kenpo. I also customize the schedule to meet my needs - I like doing other workouts besides p90x.

I got this idea after reading about other people doing it -

But if you want to stick strictly to the program, more power to you!

I agree. Slow and steady and form, form, form.

I don't do the P90X as I don't have the time, but I surge train. My Chiro's group came up with the technique and tested it against the p90X and in some cases it did better and others it did the same.

Go at it slow, it can be deceptive! I thought I was a fitness expert and I could go at it without any problems but I got sore as heck. It's great but there are muscles that hurt afterwards.

It's good but too much of a good thing can be bad!
