Anyone try try the program?
I just started the Lean Program it is alittle more Cardio based. Thought it might be a nice alternative for the off season, and give me alittle time away from the norm, (swim,bike,run) routine. Also a chance to recover from a calf injury. Any comments?..........

fwiw, my brother does p90x and loves it. i think he has lost 20-25 lbs and toned up a bunch.  i would rather just s/b/r plus, i figure that my body needs the rest between what i am doing, so i don't need another workout regimen.

Similar to a boot camp style workout I do.  A dvd will be the same every time you do it.  Just have to ask yourself if that will work for you.  I like doing workouts similar to P90X, however i've found an actual class/program where it's different every time i go.  Plus, you work harder when there's other people around!

I did the regular P90X routine for about 6 weeks last fall.  It was intense but great, made a lot of progress pretty quickly.  Workouts are high quality and varied.  I had to quit for a knee surgery (old injury, nothing to do with P90X).   I'm doing a lot of running now, training for a marathon in March, so I'm now just using the P90X upper body and core workouts in addition to my running, but leaving out the cardio and leg work.

For someone looking for an intense, effective workout that you can do in your own home with only basic equipment, I could not recommend P90X more highly.

I am doing it right now.  Just finishing up week 2.  It is def. intense and if that works for you it's good.  First week i couldn't lift my arms they were so sore, but this second week has been great.  I've lost about 2-3 pounds so far and feel more energized.  I'm looking forward to sticking it out for the rest of the year before getting back into tri training at the beginning of the year.

I'm a week ahead of Mike. Just finishing up week 3. Taking a bit of a break from doing tri stuff this winter and wanted to try the p90x. Enjoying it so far. Next week is a recovery week, so I do more Core and Yoga. Who doesn't love wall squats?

Hey folks,

Has anyone done this workout while still doing their Tri training??? I am in base again so I am not logging the big run/ride/swim time. Need to drop some Lbs.and lean out. And the strength work I add in the winter anyway. Just wondering??? How is the nutritional stuff with it?? Thanx,

Chris

I LOVE P90x. Here's my blog about it:

leandoc.blogspot.com

I have yet to get through full round of it (3 months), but it'd be very easy to incorporate this into your tri trianing.

Someone said that a DVD is the same everytime you do it...well that's the beauty of p90x. it's 12 DVDs, with a 3 month schedule, no DVD is done more than 1x per week adn the rotations change every month. You'll never get bored with it.

When you've done it once, you can start it a gain, donig a different program (like the lean version), or simply keep the 3x/week bodyweight routines while workign in your cardio stuff on other days...etc, etc...

Someone here on BT asked me if I was "done" with my DVDs. I had to laugh to myself. You're never "done" with them...mine are in nearly constant use (or were...haha, need to get back on the bandwagon)
