So I have been watching a lot of infomercials lately for the P90X fitness program and I am really intrigued. I did some research and it seems to recommend to use the original P90 system if you are a beginner. I was wondering if anyone on here has ever used it and had tips or opinions on this. Im 20 years old like 5'10 almost and 155. My arms aren't bad but my chest is pretty small and decided I have been waiting too long to work out and am really focused on getting stronger in my upper chest. Does anyone know if this product would be good for that it seems like there are a lot of success stories of people getting ripped but I couldn't really fins stories of people who were already pretty fit but looking to add muscle.

I thought of that and a Ruger pistol. haha. Anyway, to answer the original post, you dont need any of those silly TV-sold fitness programs. Honestly, all those gimmicky programs are worthless, you can get so much from just doing traditional lifting and running. It really isn't complicated. We had that weightlifting thread before, there is some advice there.

Been listening to the Junks? But seriously, I doubt the actual results of the machines they advertise on television.

You will need to buy more products then just the video, haven't tried it though.

i have seen those infomercials all the time and it looks like you really have to work your ass off for the results and if you work your ass off then you dont really need the p90 and as for the p90...i would use the m4.

Exactly. All it is some guy trying to push you not to give up once you give him your money. If you bust your ass at lifting or running you are going to get those results as well. All he does is change routines up so different muscles are being used.

I feel you, part of my problem is laziness though so I'm hoping I can just use this as a means to an end and after I'm done and hopefully see results I'll have a new attitude on lifting.

I see where you are coming from because its been a little while since I have played football and I cant seem to get up and even come close to the conditioning we did. I'm lucky if I even wake up before 12. Its like I have no motivation to get up and do something so I just stay in eating Dibs.

do a variety of different pushups, crunches, cardio all for free. I do 200 of both crunches and pushups a day (do about 20 an hour if you have the chance, they only take a total of 5 minutes), while doing 30 laps of cardio in my pool, and I'm seeing the results. Lifting can be added if you want, but its not neccessary
