Doing it the Wrong Way, Getting the Wrong Weight!

Do you feel that almost everything you were doing to build muscle was dead wrong? Imagine all the time, money and efforts you have spent working out were contributing to muscle growth, the wrong way! There are a lot of muscle building errors that impedes the progress that you want. But don’t worry, like all other things in life, muscle building is also a trial and error and a learning process.

We cannot only learn from our personal experiences but as well as from the mistakes of seasoned trainers who walked before us. Below are the three biggest and worst ways to building muscles. Try to erase these mistakes from your system and you will be a notch closer to earning the beach body you’ve been waiting for.

Skipping Out On Your Cardio
Even if you are the skinniest of skinny and your goal is to achieve maximal muscle gain it is important that cardiovascular exercises are part of your program. An aerobic form of exercise plays a vital role in building muscle and has been shown to speed up recovery from weight training by transporting oxygen and blood flow to the muscles. Doing weight training is almost useless for stimulating your cardiovascular system.

The circulatory system is developed because more oxygen is pushed through your blood resulting in a greater number and size of blood vessels. Since there is a greater cardiovascular density of blood vessels, your circulatory system has more ‘supply routes’ to shuttle oxygen and nutrients to the body tissues, including muscles, and shuttle away waste products that can slow muscle growth, repair and recovery. In the end, this means you will create a more optimal environment for building muscle!

Overtraining the Biceps and Triceps
It is a common sight in gyms to see small and weak dudes spending a full hour doing every biceps and triceps exercise imaginable. They do set-after-set, week-after-week with nothing to show but the same skinny noodle arms. What they don’t know is that for maximum muscle growth and strength, the biceps and triceps require very little direct stimulation!

If you want to yield good results, try to focus the majority of your training on the large muscle groups namely chest, back, shoulders and legs. Focus on increasing the strength and size in these big muscle groups and rest assured, building muscle in your arms will become easier.

Not Focusing On Getting Stronger
“Building muscle will almost always follow if you simply focus on getting stronger, I mean getting really stronger.” Unfortunately, training to get stronger seems to no longer be a part of the average trainees’ training regime. The stronger you become the more sets and reps you will be able to lift for more specialized movements.

The better your technique, the faster the recovery provided, the longer and harder you will be able to train. By getting stronger from week to week, muscle mass will sure follow thereafter. If you really want to build muscle fast – safely and naturally, you’ll have to make sure that you’re avoiding these three common bodybuilding no-nos.

Everyone has to start out somewhere right? When I was learning how to lift weights as a beginner, I had to look to a lot of different people for ideas.

I went to Gyms, and I read books. I also had a personal trainer to help. One thing you do learn is that people do have different philosophies and you may find different view points.

Even so, there are a few things that I have found that were mostly consistent with training in order to build muscle and get a fit body.

Here are a few of those “golden nuggets” that I came across.

 

3 Basic Bodybuilding Rules for Starters

There are many recommended ways that beginners in muscle building can grow their muscles quickly. But, all the methods being taught today can actually be deduced to simpler terms because most of them talk about the same thing. Their only difference is that they are presented in various ways. Here are three simple rules that beginning muscle builders can safely follow and be assured of the most effective results.

Rule # 1: Practice Progression in Your Workout

Starters in body building are very eager and motivated to workout. Most of them really want to grow their muscles fast. Because of this, there is a tendency for them to overdo their body building routines. But, this is not the right way to do it. Bodybuilders must be very careful in their exercises because sudden muscular activity can cause stress and may lead to injuries. The perfect bodybuilding workout for beginners should start with manageable weights, repetitions and sets. As the muscles become used to weight lifting, additional weights can be used and more repetitions and sets can be performed.

Rule # 2: Always Combine Exercise with Diet

The common mistake most beginners in bodybuilders make is that they are so much into lifting weights that they oftentimes overlook the importance of obtaining the right nutrition. The problem with this approach is that the body does not get the right amount of fuel to keep going. You may think that because you can still carry weights then you still have enough energy stores in your body. Always remember that the amount of energy you have does not determine the type of nutrition you are getting. In weight lifting, your body needs a combination of nutrients to boost the energy and feed the muscles. Without having proper nutrition, you might end up shrinking your muscles instead of growing them.

Rule # 3: Give Your Body Sufficient Time to Rest

It is a common misconception that muscles are built only when they are worked out daily. The truth is rest is very crucial in muscle development. In fact, beginners in body building are only advised to exercise for a maximum of three times every week. They must always have a day off in their workout to ensure the recovery of their muscular tissues and eventually the growth of their muscles.

Muscle development for beginners is quite common these days. It involves so many other things aside from just sculpting your muscles. It is about preparing and warming up your body before working out. It is also about getting enough rest from your workout.

Moreover, it is about taking the supplements that your body needs. Whatever it is you do, if you are interested in muscle building, the balanced combination of diet and exercise is still the best and most simple rule for you to achieve the athletic body that you want.

Here are even more tips that you can follow as a guide for your exercises for muscle building:

Body Building Preparations

The proper workout for muscle building among beginners involves doing the right exercises. This means that you take a step by step process to a muscle building fitness regimen that will make your body gradually adjust to it. Once you are fully adjusted, you can increase the intensity of your workout. If you begin with difficult workout routines, there is a great chance for you to get injured. As a beginner, it is best for you to be careful in choosing the types of exercises that you allow yourself to do.

Types of Exercises
As a starter in muscle building, there are basic exercises that you can perform. If you are able to do these regularly and execute them properly, you will surely grow your muscles easily. Squat and dead lifts are the first two exercises that you can do. Benchpress is the best resistance training workout for your chest as well as for your triceps and front deltoids. One of the best beginner exercises that can tone your arms, shoulders and triceps quickly and effectively is the military press.

Deciding on a Trainer
There are many online guides available that you can use as you start your body building regimen. You can save money by doing this. However, you can also opt to enroll in a gym and get a good fitness trainer that will guide you in your workout. Body building may seem to be an easy task but it can sometimes require assistance. Decide what is best for you and choose accordingly.

Yup, so in a nut shell, take is slow and gradually increase your workouts…. make sure you have a good diet that will complement your weight training workout routine, and get lots of good rest.

It doesn’t matter how much or how hard you work out if you skip these critical steps. You will put all your hard work to waste in vain.

If you have any ideas and constructive thoughts to add for lifting weights and body building for beginners, make sure you leave a comment and we’ll be sure to post it!

Bob delivers a very grueling workout…It has you sweating all the way through. The only area that seems to be toned down or simplified is the plank work. It is hard to follow and the rolling sit up and jump sections were next to impossible. Perhaps Bob could have included a variation for those who cannot drop roll and jump. Looking forward to seeing some abs underneath layers of having 3 boys in the last six years.

I have several work out DVD’s and this is by far the best. Very good/tough workout, but fast paced, and makes me work up a huge sweat and good cardio workout. I highly recommend this video to any person that works out at home.

Top Post Workout Supplements

What is the best post workout supplement for training?

I was wondering that same thing after I did a search to find out what the best pre workout supplements were for weight training and building muscle.

So, what so you think I did, yep, I headed out to my local search engine and did some research. Here is what I found…

Making the decision of what to put into your body post workout is, necessarily, a bit complicated. Fortunately, through experimentation both clinical and personal, I have determined what post workout supplements to combine in your post workout drink to best effectively combat the imposed stress of a high intensity workout session.

Making the right decisions on which ingredients to ingext will make all the difference in the world and can help you get ripped fast. It is very important to take the time to understand what items will provide you with the recovery nutrients you need.

One of the opinions I got was taht Muscle Milk sucks… So upon further investigation, I found something called Optimum Nutrution. They have a whey protein.

I use Optinum Nutrition’s Whey protein with a little creatine mixed in. Any whey will do as you need the quick absorbing protein that whey provide. The creatine is to replenish the muscle’s energry. Also, I try to eat some fast absorbing carbs like a fruit as well.

In general, you have to be in calorie excess to gain muscle. If you are not seeing gain, check your diet and/or excercise routine. Keep in mind, of course that just by taking supplements, it will not help you gain muscle. you need to be working out! The post workout drink is only ONE step in getting muscle gain and will fail if your excercise routine or diet is off.

A good weight lifting workout routine is very important.

Ran into another forum and they recommended Glyco Maize.

The person has been using a Glyco Maize added to regular whey ( just cheapy stuff from Vitamin Shoppe but it works). Mix it 50/50 is what she said, but I know that there is more of a science to it and someone more knowledgable would tell you the correct amounts.

The good thing I noticed is that it really seems to cut cravings and it keeps you from wanting to eat everything in sight before bedtime. Post workout always take Glutamine too.

Overall, here are some general guidelines that you can keep in mind that will help you to understand what you need as you navigate the sometimes confusing territory regarding the best post workout supplements.

Whey protein isolate takes the best of a great, natural supplement, whey protein, and takes out the fat and excess calories, leaving you with 80-90% protein by weight. This is a great way to get pure protein without the excess baggage.

Leucine is one of the only essential amino acids known to upregulate synthesis of muscle growth and reduce muscle degradation. This will help you decrease your need for intake. It stimulates the brain into being satisfied.

Bovine Colostrum, or first milk, makes itself present at the end of the pregnancy cycle. It is often taken by high performance atheletes. The quality in the protein derived is known to reduce recovery time and also increase lean muscle mass. The powdered form can be added to a post workout supplement shake.

Dextrose is the simplest form of sugar(glucose) that is important post workout because it metabolizes and is absorbed quickly into the boyud. After intense workout, it can help you stabilize quickly. about 20g of dextrose can do the trick.

Creatine monohydrate is also important. it really helps recovery time. Start with 5g in a post workout drink.

The post workout supplement is designed to help you get all the fat protein and carbs your body needs to help regulate unsulin levels and continue to fuel your deprived body. Remember, mal nourishment can do more damamge to your weight training workout routine than the trainin itself.

A general plan of action varies upon your goals. When deciding to work out at night or when attempting to lose fat by cutting, mix 40g of whey protein isolate with 2g Leucine, 3-6g of colostrum and 5g creatine monohydrate. When deciding to increase mass and bulking, combine 40g whey protein isolate with 20g dextrose, 6g of first milk powder and 5g creatine. Regardless of dieting or cutting, 60-90 minutes after your chosen shake, sit down and have your chosen meal.

One thing to keep in mind. Your diet needs and post and best pre workout supplements will vary depending on your goals. As your weight training regimen changes, you may need to increase or decrease different supplements.

Speak with your trainer for suggestions. Also, consult with your physician when going on any supplement regimen. Regardless of whether or not you think that you have the best post workout supplement, if it doesn’t work for your health, then it won’t do you any good.

Best Circuit Training Workout

Workout can sometimes get boring… so that is why circuit training can be beneficial. So, what are the best circuit training workouts? Here are three that we like. Why not try them and see how they workout for you.

Top 3 Circuit Training Workouts

Circuit training workout involves intense and time-efficient exercises. It is made up of several exercise routines that are done with very minimal or no rest. It usually combines cardiovascular and strength training in one workout. In fact, the best circuit training workout is comprised of various strength exercises that target different muscle groups and cardiovascular activities aimed at increasing your heart rate.

Whole-Body Strength Circuit Workout

This workout can exercise all of the major muscles in your body within 20 minutes. This will require you to perform upper body and lower body exercises alternately without long resting periods in between. What you do is after working on your upper body, you rest those muscles while exercising your lower body at the same time. The circuit workout for your entire body will usually consist of squats, deadlifts, bench press, bent-over rows, overhead press and crunches. You do all these exercises quickly for about 20 seconds and move from one routine to the next. Once you have finished all the six exercises, you rest for a minute and repeat the circuit. Do this up to 4 times. As a tip, prepare your exercise machines or stations before starting with your routine so that you can perform efficiently.

Cardio-Strength Circuit Training Workout

This type of circuit training combines cardiovascular and strength exercises to be performed alternately. You will need six stations for this workout consisting of lunges with overhead press, seated row, jump rope, dumbbell pullover, jog in place and high knee runs. In doing these exercises, you will be using both anaerobic and aerobic energies. Cardio exercises are performed 45 seconds while strength training for about 1 minute. Just like in the full body circuit, you rest for several minutes after doing the six routines continuously. Then you proceed to perform another circuit until you finish three of them.

Bodyweight 15

This circuit training workout can be done anywhere. It doesn’t require any exercise machine so the exercises can be conveniently performed from the comforts of your home or even when you are travelling. You only need to do five types of exercises in one circuit which include burpees, push-up, mountain climbers, crunches and squats. Perform each circuit six times while resting in between. Start with 75 seconds for circuit 1 and subtract 15 seconds for the succeeding circuits.

Incorporating Strength Training in Your Busy Schedule
Most experts in fitness recommend 30 minutes of strength training workout 2 to 3 times weekly in order to develop strength and grow muscles. However, not everyone has enough time to insert these exercises in their schedule. Here are some ways for busy people to incorporate strength training exercises in their day to day routine.

1. Make exercising convenient and easy for you. This means that you must find a place to exercise where you do not need to spend plenty of time to go to. If you feel you will be allotting time just travelling to your gym, try exercising at home. Remember that your muscles will respond to any resistance whether it comes from your body weight or from exercise equipment.

2. Aim for exercises that can work out different muscles at once. For example, leg press and squats are strength training workouts that exercise the quadriceps, buttocks, hamstrings and calves. By doing these two, you are already targeting four groups of muscles.

3. Minimize resting between exercises. You can do supersets which means that you exercise a specific group of muscles with successive strength training routines without having to rest in between. Another way to do supersets is to work out two muscle groups that are opposing without resting in between the exercises. The way to do this is to choose muscles that are close to each other. You can have biceps and triceps, back and chest or hamstrings and quads.

4. Have a back-up plan for the exercise you will perform on a certain muscle group. If you are working out in the gym, there are instances that you may not be able to use the machine in your exercise plan. But, if you have exercise alternatives, then you won’t be spending time waiting for your turn.
Strength training workouts are essential in your exercise routine. But, more than just the type of exercises you will perform, the amount of repetitions you will do or the muscle group that you will work on, the main challenge is the time you need to spare for this. If you have a busy schedule, try your best to make strength training your priority. You will be amazed at the benefits it can give to your physical body and your overall health.

Best Pre Workout Supplement 2011

What is the best pre workout supplement for this year?

Click Here

Isn’t that the age old question? or.. for that matter, what is the best workout supplement for building muscle? That question gets asked over and over… and the answer is… you guessed it… depands!

The best pre workout supplement all depends on what your particular workout goals are. Of course, I’m betting that alot fo you are looking for ways to build muscle quickly and some are looking for ways to get ripped fast.

But see, right there, we talked about two completely different initiatives. Okay, enough talk about that. Let’s get to the business of discussion as to the best preworkout supplement for 2011.

You may find that there are some supplements that appear from previous years…. guess why? They still work!

Pre-workout supplements are extremely popular among both competitive and recreational lifters, in many ways because of the instant boost of energy that many of them experience. Many pre-workout supplements are designed specifically with the goal of being able to increase energy, delay fatigue, increase pumps, and boost muscle gains. The best pre-workout supplement are often all natural, and contain a combination of ingredietns that are supposed to give you that energy boost.

Almost all pre-workout supplements contain caffeine. If you need that jolt of energy for your workout, it is important tolook for caffiene in your supplement. There are also other pre-workout supplements also contain other stimulants such as geranium extract and synephrine to further boost energy and focus.

Creatine is another common ingredient. However you need to check the label, as many pre-workout supplements list creatine on their label but don’t really have enough to have a lasting effect. Your pre-workout should provide a bare minimum of 3g of creatine, any less and you are wasting your money.

Nitric oxide boosters such as arginine AKG, agmatine sulfate, and citrulline malate are also often included to increase the pump experienced from lifting, volumizing the working muscles. Nitric oxide boosters are help blood flow to your muscle fibers and that is what gives the feeling of the pump when you workout.

Beta-alanine is an ingredient that you will want to be sure is in your pre-workout. Beta-alanine delays fatigue (you know, getting tired) and reduces the burn felt in the muscle that can make you feel like you can’t go on and prevents the extra few reps. Your pre-workout should contain at least 1g beta-alanine, though the ideal dose is higher.

First of all, for those of you looking to get lean, you should definitley stay away from antying that contains creatine. Creatine has the tendency to cause you to retain water in your body. So, using products containing creatine will end up giving you the appearance of being fat and will deterioate your definition.

There are different types of pre-workout supplements being sold in the market. One of the highly utilized is nitric oxide. Despite the various choices for nitric oxide supplement, not all of them meet the standards that most people are looking for. If you want to greatly benefit from your pre-workout supplement, you have to take something that can provide you with energy and pump for your workout while improving your overall health at the same time.

Gain Muscle Mass

Now, let’s talk about strength and mass gaining. If you want to see how much muscle mass you can gain and how much weight you can push, then you may want to consider Superpump 250.

Superpump 250

In the pre-workout category, SuperPump250 is the reigning King of dramatic effects. Athletes who try SuperPump virtually never go back to any other pre-workout supplement, and its effects are so profound that the thought of training without it is simply out of the question for most users. In the groundbreaking independent clinical trial, increases in lean muscle mass nearly tripled in a single workout with just 1 dose of SuperPump250 as compared to not taking the supplement. If that’s not enough, body fat percentages simultaneously dropped as opposed to no changes in body fat recorded without the supplement. Consider all this with the added effects of explosive energy, mental focus and strength, and you’re left with seemingly very little to consider.

Concentration and Focus

If you want to have that long burn and energy to get through that grueling workout, then jacked is probably for you. Jacked is one of the most popular workout supplements on the market today. It really helps you get that intensity and the best thing is you don’t crash hard. One note, don’t take it and workout too close to bed time. You may not be able to sleep!

Jack3d

Like having tons of energy, strength, stamina and endurane for your workouts? Who doesn’t? There’s nothing like the right combinaton of compounds taken pre-workout to deliver consistently mind-blowing workouts to help you achieve your goal. After all, if your workouts suck, you can all but forget about making killer progress anytime soon. USP Labs Jack3d gives you the mad aggressive desire and ability to lift more weight, pump out more reps and have crazy lasting energy, along with sick muscle-engorging pumps. Jack3d is easily the most intense pre-workout product you will ever want to use again. The amount of energy anf focus is perfect, pumps and vascularity will be out of control, but most importantly you will feel great throughout your entire workout. No crash, no bloat, no headaches, no blown workouts.

The effectiveness of Jack3d is mainly attributed to the combination of stimulants that it contains. Just like any other pre-workout supplement, Jack3d has caffeine for its main ingredient. However, aside from this, it also has geranium extract called 1.3 dimethylamylamine. This substance is a natural compound that has been a common content of most foods for a long time. Moreover, it is also packed with schizendrol, an extract that can be obtained from schizendra plant. When caffeine, 1.3 dimethylamylamine and schizendrol are combined, they can sufficiently and safely provide the energy and focus that its users need to get through an intense workout session and even in other day to day activities. In fact, there are computer programmers and students who take Jack3d in order to keep them focused in accomplishing their tasks and performing their work without interruptions.

Other ingredients of Jack3d include AAKG, creatine and beta alanine. AAKG helps in pumping the muscles, creatine in the development of lean muscle mass and beta alanine for providing endurance. Unlike other pre-workout supplements, it is considered the best as it does not contain any trace of fillers such as maltodextrin, fats, artificial flavors, food coloring, processed carbohydrates and stool-splitting magnesium. Because of its simple and natural ingredients, Jack3d is also more affordable than other pre-workout supplements. Being the best pre-workout supplement that it is, Jack3d is undoubtedly one of the great nitric oxide sources at the moment.

There are many more ingredients with different functions that may be included in a pre-workout supplement, but these are the most common. While your pre-workout supplement may have a great ingredient profile, make sure that adequate doses of each ingredient are supplied. For example. if your pre-workout supplement contains a proprietary blend of 10 ingredients at 3g/scoop and creatine is listed last, then there is probably not much creatine in the product! Different people may find that different pre-workouts may be best for them, but just make sure that you aren’t paying $40 for a bottle of caffeine and that your pre-workout supplement actually contains real muscle building ingredients.

What about Nitric Oxide Supplements?

Most Suitable Nitric Oxide Supplement for You
You will know what is best for you by asking yourself further with the following questions:

Question 1: Do you prefer a stimulant or stimulant free product for your pre workout supplement?

Most nitric oxide supplements have caffeine and other types of stimulants which provide power, concentration and extra strength while you are working out. Because stimulants are beneficial, it is helpful to have them in your supplements. But, it is also recommended that you stop your stimulant use from time to time. In particular, you can use stimulant based supplements for 2 to 3 consecutive months and take a break from 2 to 4 weeks. This will help your adrenals work efficiently.

Do not worry about stopping your stimulant intake for a certain period. You can still have the amazing pumps that you want by taking pre-workout supplements that are stimulant free. Most of these supplements are in pill form but there are instances when it isn’t. Read on to know about stimulant-free supplements that you can choose from.

As an additional note, make sure to thoroughly read the instructions before taking stimulant based supplements. Also, do not combine 2 products that are both stimulants even if the other one is simply coffee. As a beginner, you have to begin with low dosages and make gradual increases.
Most stimulant based supplements contain caffeine. According to research, caffeine is mostly safe in the amount of 6 milligrams per kilogram of bodyweight. To be safe, it is recommended to limit your daily intake of caffeine below 400 milligrams.

Unfortunately, most products presented on this site contain propriety formulas that do not specify the amount of caffeine in one serving. If you are worried about this, look for a product that clearly specifies the dosage of its stimulant content in the label. Scivation and Cellucor do this and there are more companies that are getting rid of their propriety formulas.

NO3 Chrome is the most preferred nitric oxide pill because of its two ingredients. First is Arginine Nitrate which results to huge and long pumps. The second is Pycnogenol which is a natural anesthetic and nitric oxide amplifier.

NO3 can be used with other stimulant-based supplement listed below. But, you have to be very careful when doing so. Make sure to read the instructions carefully especially when combining it with other types of supplements containing nitrate such as C4 extreme. These products are produced by a legit company known as Cellucor.

NO3 Chrome Ingredients

The main ingredient of NO3 Chrome is arginine nitrate, which is well known as a powerful nitric oxide booster. Arginine Nitrate is a combination of the amino acid l-arginine with a nitrate ion. This helps your body create more nitric acid in your body, which leads to more nutrients flowing to the muscles. This is what gives you the intense pumps and strength that you desire.

Another ingredient is L-Citrulline Malate which is one of the best endurance supplements available. Clinical trials have showed it to reduce muscle fatigue, but we’re also now seeing that this is great for pumps too – a perfect reason to put it in here.

The last ingredient that I would like to discuss is Pycnogenol, which is an awesome nitric oxide amplifier. It is a natural plant extract, which is taken from the bark of the maritime pine tree. This tree only grows along the coast of southwest France. Studies have shown that when coupled with arginine, that it cured erectile dysfunction in 80% of its users without any side effects. I know we’re not trying to solve erectile dysfunction with our pre-workout product, but the proof is in the pudding: pycnogenol is the ultimate nitric oxide amplifier when mixed with arginine!!

Bob Harper: Pure Burn Super Strength (DVD)
How in the world did I miss this guy? Well, I think it’s because I stayed away from the dvds with Biggest Loser marketing. My loss. Bob kicks a**!! I love Pure Burn Super Strength! Definately not for the faint of heart. This has to be one of the best strength workout dvds ever – IMO.

After losing 120 lbs. never stepping foot in a Gym always walking& running doing Bob & Jillians workouts on Dvd this workout is what we need take it to the next level and build more muscle.

Before we talk about p90x coupon codes, where to find them, or the best way to get a discount P90x program, lets do a quick p90x review.

p90x review:

The p90x program has gotten many great results. Here are some real reviews from amazon customers who have bought and used the product.

This review is from: P90X: Tony Horton‘s 90-Day Extreme Home Fitness Workout DVD Program (DVD)
This product is what I expected from the infomercial – the infomercial is a good representation of what you’ll get. The DVDs are good, come in a small case (no excess packaging to exaggerate or compensate for lack of real product). The accompanying written materials are good too.
However, I found that I wasn’t quite in shape enough when P90X arrived to use it well. I went back and bought Tony Horton’s “Power Half Hour” and used that for a few weeks first – had to wake up some muscles I’ve let go dormant. I’ve been in good shape most of my life, but kind of got lazy lately – I needed to get a basic foundation before I could jump into the incredible workouts he provides.
Make no mistake; this is a commitment. The workouts are long, and hard, but they are engaging. No geeky cheesy cheerleader pep talks in the DVD, and no arrogant gym rat jerks either. If I win the lottery, I’ll try to hire Tony as my personal trainer; he has a good positive attitude, and seems to keep the workouts real with a sense of humility and humor.
The segment timer is great. Though the workouts are typically an hour long, he has “chunked” them down into segments, with a “progress bar” on the screen – kind of like the bar on the computer – so you can adjust your pace or your mindset with the workout.
Tony uses both men and women of differing degrees of flexibility and fitness; there’s always a body on the screen up there to help me with my own form.
I’m a former Marine – and this is used to replace my “daily thirteen.” If only I knew about some of these workouts back in the day… So I give it a thumbs up from the perspective of some really challenging workouts I’ve experienced in the past.
Overall, a good deal. But be warned, it isn’t for the fat couch potato. Like the infomercial says, its for folks that want to get in BETTER shape; the expectation is that you already are in shape and want to take it to the next level.

The current issue with p90x is that it is very popular, so the makers don’t have any coupon promo codes. For now, There has been a lot of questions out there wondering if there are any P90X coupons, well if you are searching for P90X coupons then you might have a hard time finding them. You have probably been asking yourself, “Why can I not find any coupons for the P90X workout routine?”

The main reason why the search has not been easy is because most places that sale P90X are already selling it at a discount price, or at least offer free shipping, but add a little more to their base prices to make up for the free shipping. Another reason is when you compare P90X to the price of a gym; it is very inexpensive. With P90X you pay one time for the P90X DVD’s, and if you decided to get the chin up bar, dumbbells, and exercise bands, it still beats the price of the gym.

The best thing you can do it purchase the p90x program cheap at Amazon.com. They have the best pricing, and often times they don’t charge shipping on the product.
