Change your lifestyle 1 small step at a time. Fad diets or extreme diets where you feel like youre suffering will be short lived and more than likely your results will be short lived too.

Calorie counting isnt as necessary as paying attention to your sugar and salt intake.

Is it hard?


If you haven't been doing HIIT (high intensity interval training) style work-outs before, imma be honest and say yes. I had been doing HIIT and cross-fit style exercises for a few months before p90x. BUT the good thing about it is its done at your own pace and but you can still follow along and/or do it with a group. You will eventually work your way up. It is a commitment though. I would say your beginning level does not matter as much as your commitment level. If youre not committed to working out 6 days a week (sometimes 2xs a day) and eating 200% healthy (minimal sugar, minimal salt, lean meats, 1 cheat meal a week), i'd say don't do it. Its a lot of work and there are other exercises you can do in less time that will get the effects youre gonna get doing 90x if you half ass do it.

I am from California. 47 degrees is COLD... to me! lol

Working out in the cold is dangerous. I am not trying to jeopardize my health for a short run
I'd rather work out tomorrow with the sun is at it's highest

Uh uhhh! You are startin' off wrong. Any excuse to not be active will do. Shoot, 47 degrees is warm. LOL

Seriously though, thats the hardest part to getting fit. I try to encourage my friends/associates to remove the excuses. Once you do that, its easy sailing IMO.

I do spinning 3x a week for an hour.  I guess it's high intensity although Ive been doing it for years and my body is used to it.  I dont feel sore anymore after class so I may try the p90X for the days I don't spin.  Actually I may try it tonight.  I'll report back after I try it.

If you spin then youll be able to keep up.
As weird as it sounds, thats what i dont like...the soreness after working out.

i should post the 'broomstick' work out i once made for a friend.

does it build curves?
tbh it was a basic workout around compound movements for a beginner who had never used bars and weights

technically with weight progression it did help with curves
