Ok thanks. One other thing I would just like to say tha your advice and help is really appreciated and helpful in my fitness journey. God bless
stephentroop25 I would do P90X2 as is for at least one round first before doing a hybrid with it.
Hey Coach I was wondering I'm finishing p90cx in 3 and a half wks and was wondering what program I should do after I'm done with p90x? I'm pretty close but not down to the bf I want and I also want to gain some size in my muscles. Thanks for the help in advance.
stephentroop25 I'd go with P90X2 if you want to step it up and keep building muscle. It's a great program and will push you further.
Hi Coach! I've been massively inspired by you and the incredible results you've had so first off thank you for making the youtube video's which got me on track to a healthier life. I've completed a round of insanity and I'm now into week 6 of your P90X/Insanity hybrid workout and I'm struggling to see any results. I've been on the 1900 calorie a day diet and since I started i've gone from 184lbs to 170lbs and seen little change in the mirror. What could I be doing wrong? I'm a 24 year old male.
Keep going Ashers! 14 lbs in 6 weeks is great! You will be seeing changes, just keep going. Did you take pictures? It is often hard to look in the mirror day to day and see changes, but pics 30 days apart really tell the true story. Keep working hard and I am glad to help any time!
Hello I'm well on my way to completing my first week of insanity whoop! And I don't know how many calories to eat. My current weight is 248 and I'm 5'10 my goal is 195 give or take 10-15 lbs I have used a few calorie calculators and they have all said about 1956 calories to reach my goal. Does that sound about right?
StephenSmith2 Sounds like a great deficit! That is just about where I started weight-wise and what I did for a calorie goal. You should have great fat loss. Just make sure you track everything you eat to make sure you hit your goals. Check out: www.teamripped.com/nutrition-tracking
Hi Coach,Can you estimate the weight of The SHakeology box when they ship? You know what? Im gonna order it to my uncle living in the US then he'll sned it from the US to VietNam for me. And yes, that takes a lot of money :( (like I did with my resistance band and P90X)
Trung ONFIRE Let me check the box when I get home and I can tell you exactly what the shipping weight is. The large bag is roughly 3 lbs. So I would think at most 4 lbs shipped.
Hey coach im not eating very many calories to shred fat will this prevent me from gaining any mass? Or should i eat alot of protien while keep the calories low
Cody Lee Pick one of the other - getting ripped or getting big. If you try to do both as the same time it is a really slow process. I would start with a deficit, get ripped, and then add some lean mass. Check out: http://teamripped.com/deficit-or-surplus/ and make sure to look at the last link too!
Ok well I actually just read your for adults only article and it was really helpful. Since I'm a teen won't just trying to eat healthy and doing the workouts still give me those results that I want from p90x??
stephentroop25 Just focus on being healthy and working out. The results will come.
I rarely go over the 2200 but do you think I should still go to the 2000?? Do you think that since I'm 17 that my age could be a factor??
Well since I have a kidney condition I cannot use any protein supplements so my protein is usually around 35-40%. I'm 184 and 6'2" and running the 600 deficit and eating 220 0 calories a day based on your caloric calculator. As far as cheating 95% of the time I eat perfectly healthy so largely no cheats
stephentroop25 Either you cheat or you don't. Be consistent. Running a deficit is a bit average. If you cheat 5% of the time, those calories can really upset that average (if you are really going over). I might drop to 2000 and see where you are in a week or two. That will also lower your total grams of protein which is probably beneficial for your situation.
Ok thanks. How much did your vertical increase after a round of p90x? Also for my first month of p90x I lost a lb a week but now I haven't really lost any weight in the last three weeks. I'm doing the fs and deficit and not missing workouts and was wondering if you knew if there was any reason why I'm not losing weight like I was?? Thanks
stephentroop25 Are you hitting your nutrition perfectly? No cheats? How big of deficit are you currently running?
I didn't measure my vertical so I don't know exactly. But it's way easier to jump at 215-220 with 6% BF than 252 lbs!
Hey coach what is the best workout program to increase my vertical? I play basketball and wanted to increase my game. Thanks
stephentroop25 I would go with The Asylum Vol 1. It's got an absolutely great vertical plyo workout.
Hey coach im doing p90x classic and using the fat shredder meal plam would me going running everday as well be to much?
Cody Lee I always encourage people to stick to one workout a day. One workout like P90X and a dialed in nutrition plan is all you need. It's really easy to get burned out with doing more (or doubles). If you are set on it, do it a couple times a week like on yoga days and after Kenpo.
Sorry i meant the plyo, yoga, and kenpo days:) ok well could I just use bands instead since I won't have acces to free weights for the lift days when I'm not at a hotel?
stephentroop25 Bands are good, but yes, you can do 3 cardio days in a row like that.
Hey Coach I was wondering since I'm going on vacation and will only be at a hotel for 3 days if I can do the lift days in a row instead of taking a day off for the cardio routines in between? Thanks
stephentroop25 Wouldn't you just have 1 cardio day? I wouldn't probably stick to the plan to allow all the accessory muscles in your first lifting day to rest up for the next day.
hello coach wayne, im going to start p90x, i've finished insanity already, and i lost 13kg, today i weigth 80kg, im using isopure zero carb, and liquid carnitine, do you recommend me any other suplement? i've going with a nutritionist for the last 3 months, hope you answer me, greetings from mexico!
DavidRodriguez2 No those are fine supplements. Keep you nutrition dialed in and track everything you eat for your goals (ex for fat loss - Fat Shredder and a Deficit). Then just be consistent and trust the system. Nice work man!
Coach, I have a question. I live in Boston, I'm three weeks into P90x and it's going great. Well except Yoga X (brutal it is). We had the Boston Marathon tragedy and I had a friend who lost weight on his own, trained by running and ran the marathon; it inspired me. But I want to train to do the Marathon but I do not want to stop P90X. Can there be a hybrid of running and p90x that you can suggest.
Thank you for your time
Martin Irizarry Hey Martin, there are TONS of people who train for events like marathons, triathlons, mud runs, cycling, and sports of all sorts. The key is to adapt the workouts to fit your strategy.
For marathon training, the best option is to do the 3 P90X lift days as scheduled, but substitute running for the plyo, yoga, and kenpo days (thus you run 3 days per week). Still take a day 7 rest/stretch day.
Glad your friend was not one of the victims. So sad that people are so full of hate and evil that they will intentionally attempt to kill and mame innocent people.
Coach, would eating out at Olive Garden be considered cheating? Even though I wuould look up items on the menu and plan ahead using MFP?
LanderosAdrian No, it's not cheating if it fits your daily macros. But be sure you make wise choices. I've written all about how to eat out without cheating in my article "eating out", which is in the "nutrition tips/sample diets" tab.
@CoachWayne Ok, I found healthy options that I just added to MFP and worked around it for the rest of the day to fit my macros. Thanks once again!
Coach what do you think of my dinner today? I went to Olive Garden with my girlfriend and we planned our dinner ahead of time, my MFP screen name is 'LanderosAdrian'. Thanks!
Hey coach how can I tell what is my heart rate zone I need to be in for my workouts ?
stephentroop25 I wouldn't worry too much about zones. I would just go as hard as you can (with good form) for as long as you can. As you push that threshold, you'll burn more calories and your ability to work harder will increase. Check out: http://teamripped.com/the-mythical-fat-burning-zone/
hey coach wayne im a huge fan. i have some concerns. i'm 17 and wrestle and play baseball, so always active and watching my weight. especially for wrestling season. but now its over i'm around 5"7 and 145lbs. i was wondering if you could help me figure out if i should go on fat shredder plan for a 2-4 weeks or just put on mass. If you could give me some feedback i would appreciate it.
Dallas Moffit Unfortunately I can't really offer you advice since you are under 18. My advice and Beachbody's is intended for adults. It is a legal and liability issue. Check out: www.teamripped.com/4-adults-only
oh coach wayne my birthday is actually tomorrow thats the only reason i had asked because i was already aware of giving advice was for adults only.
