Week 6, Day 3. Basically, I'm now back to where I was when I finished my first round last December. My ony complaint is the pace of some of the DVDs - legs and back, and back and biceps, in particular. I really wish there was a setting on the DVDs that would allow you to give yourself a 10 or 15 second break between the moves, automatically. I feel that if I don't pause every now and then the resistance workouts kinda become cardio workouts, and it gets tiresome reaching for the remote all the time. "Hammer up, hammer down, like you're building a house . . . ."

Hey Mike, if u get a weight vest, let me know how it works out. I was thinking of doing the same. My first thought was for pullups, but now I'm thinking it might be nice to do the leg stuff without weights in my hands. I think there are some that allow you to add/subtract weight, which would be nice.

I bought the weight vest and I use it for push and pull days along with legs and back. I will tell you it makes the workouts way tougher. I really would recommend if you are in pretty good shape and want to go to the next level. I bought the 20 pound vest. It has little bags that weigh 3/4 pounds so you can adjust your weight. I am adding 11.5 pounds now and it makdes it way harder. Good luck. I got plyo today

The idea behind P90X was that resistance training is a cardio workout. It is suppose to be back to back. I did the DVDs and while they gave a good workout, I found that the overall result was more for look, and my realistic strength for boarding did not improve. Dont get me wrong my cardio was amazing, but I was no stronger than I was before.

Hey all, I have been killing P90X \ P90X2 for a little over 6 months now. I have gained a bunch of muscle and cant wait to start wakeboarding. I am 6-1 and went from 227 and am presently just under 185. The only downside so far is that I had to buy a few pairs of new pants as my old ones are too loose. I liked the programs and results so much, I decided to become a beachbody coach so I could assist others with the same goals. Check out my site at beachbodycoach.com/richie44rich and sign up for a free account to make me your coach. We can all do this together and achieve some awesome results!!

Man, I don't see how you can do P90X and not get stronger. My first round resulted in a 62% increase in pullups and a 43% increase in pushups. I know there are other mass building programs (like body beast, for example) that'll make you stronger quicker, but I really don't think P90X is a cardio-focused program like, say, insanity. Now, whether any of the gains will help on the water, who knows . . . .

I think you need to define stregnth...one veiw is it invloves pushing around weight. Dont' care how tall, how fat, ect....how much weight can you move?

In this sense...when I did p90...i definately noticed a drop in stregth in all measurable exercises. squat/bench/lat pull/shoulder press.

but cardio , flexibility and agility all increased. I also dropped abtou 8-10 lbs.

Still rolling. Using the weight vest on push and pull days. That thing is straight awesome. If you feel like you have plateued Give the weight vest a shot. It is a great addition. I am about 10 days away from baby so hopefully after my son is born I will be able to keep up with the program.

Well we had our baby so I took a week off. But I busted out some plyo yesterday and I am getting back on track. I am interested to see if I can keep the pace with the baby. I know my diet will improve now that my wife will not be eating mexican food four days a week.
