P90X Shopping List Getting started on nutrition in P90X can be a little overwhelming. There is a lot of information to take in and nothing else you do in your program will have as much of an impact on your results as proper nutrition. If you are new to teamRIPPED, I would suggest that...

Dealing with Loose Skin

From time to time I get asked the question about loose skin.  What can be done about it?  Does it get better over time?  Do I have loose skin myself? I just got asked again by Jerry in the TR Suggestion Box. Well, consider this.  I have weighed 310 lbs in my life.  I now weigh nearly 100...
