Hey Coach Wayne I am a coach and you actually answered one of my questions on your youtube channel to which I subscribe (big fan of btw) . My questions is as a Male coach I am finding it really hard to get any male clients. I have CG's and customers 100% female base. My diamond coach's team is actually 95% female as well. Now there is nothing wrong with that at all but I am just wondering how to break through I feel like its a harder sell as a man, to get more "customers" ( I hate that word as well). I had great results and I know a lot about diet and supplementation but that does not seem to matter and I avoid being salesy at all costs.  I hear name after name on the wake up call for diamond and I want to be that one guy out of the bunch lol.

 @brutewarriors I think any and all customers are drawn to credible people and those that care about their results. Are you inviting a lot of guys? What about a Beast Challenge group. I would just keep at it and don't forget about those customers you have. Help them get the best results they can! Make their success your goal.

 @CoachWayne Thanks for the advice. I have not tried to do a beast CG yet but I have wanted to do the program ever since I traded in the gym for Beachbody.  Your an awesome person for answering everyone's questions!

I'm on day 18 of P90X and I was curious what you recommend for reps on lift days.  At a 1000 calorie deficit I assume I won't be putting on mass but I was wondering if I should bother trying to achieve muscle hypertrophy (8-10 reps) versus focusing on muscle endurance by doing a little lighter weight to hit the 12-15 rep range?  Can you help me understand which would be better and what effects either would have on my muscles at a deficit?  Thanks coach!

Am always using the chair to do it,Is this OK? and with the legs workout..I couldn't hold and do all the workouts. am frustrated coz I finished 50 days of Insanity (I stopped 2 weeks before P90X) and I still cant compete with the workouts as I didn't do a 50 day of Insanity ?!!! I dont know what to do..shall I be patient and keep going? and it will be better later? Regarding the AB-x I dont have a problem with exercise but my problem is my Butt Bone,,I cant do them exactly as they should because of it. Please kindly advise me what to do?

Hey Coach, I was just wondering, but for a beginner doing something like AB Ripper-X what, in your opinion, is the best and most beneficial way to proceed: 1. Do all the reps (25 etc.) of each exercise at your own time/pace (i.e. frequent breaks for me!); or 2. simply do as many in one go as is possible on the day? Thanks

Hey Coach, I'm just posting here as a sort of self-accountability measure more than anything else, however I've just finished taking the P90x 'Fit Test' and I passed... Well, sorta/kinda/not really. Met minimum on pull-ups (3); exceeded vert. jump (13 inches); just over on push-ups (16); managed to touch my toes (hooray!); 1min 5 sec on wall squat so also just over; 12 reps @ 22lbs bicep curls; 27 in & outs; BUT... ... totally busted on the jumping jacks. Barely (and I mean barely, my legs were jello and my heart about popped!) made 1:30 - so a full 30 sec short of 'normal' and didn't even make the final 30 sec sprint! know the recommendation is to try Power 90 or something first if you don't pass the Fit Test, however I'm simply waaaaaaay too invested in PSX90 at this point and have my gym set-up, diet planned and everything else ready to go to start first thing Monday. Disappointed! :/

Mike

How's it going Coach Wayne Today was Day 2 of my workout & meals. I'm finding it very frustrating because I went over on carbs -79 , Fats -14 & protein I'm at 75 , what am I doing wrong ? & how can I figure out how to fix this ?

Mike
Mike

Ok thanks Coach Wayne so today was Day 1 & I just finished all my meals I went with that you told me 2000 calories . 50%P. / 30% Carb / 20% F At the end of the day ( switch is now ) my total calories were 2,079 For Carbs -64 , Fat -27 & Protein 84 . Why does carbs & fat has the (-) sign ? Did I go over ? If so how much ? & protein ? How much more do I have to take ?

Mike

Coach Wayne Sorry for being such a pain in the ass lol but on MFP , after I put my own custom calories & % do I have to worry about puttin in the calories I wanna burn ever week & trans fat, sodium , sugar etc etc ?

Mike

Coach Wayne Thank you soo much I spent pretty much most of my day until now reading & understand a lot of the things you explained & described. You were & are a lot of help. I appreciate it. I will be making you my coach. Now only one more question, im soon to be attending the firefighter academy here in Philadelphia. I have to be between a certain weight. I'm 200 pounds now & like I said I wanna lose the fat & build the muscle I know now what I have to do. My question is on " My Fitness Pal" after I put my current weight it ask my Goal weight , do I still put 200 pounds ? I put that & it's tellin me to take up 2,630 calories , 362g carbs , 88g fat , 99g protein , is that about right ? Please explain & help me on that part ? Thanks

Mike
Mike

i just wanna get built alittle & get cut. what do i have to do ?

Mike
Mike

Coach Wayne, whats going on ? im going to start P90X tomorrow, im 6ft 200 pounds & im 22 so 3000 calories is what i should be eatting right ? & i wanted to know i also have insanity . is it bad if i do insanity in the morning & P90X in the evening ? Now as far as Protein is this the right way ? 1. Most important time to take whey protein is right after a workout. Your muscles are like a sponge and need instant nutrition for muscle recovery and growth. 2. Right before bed. You’re about to sleep for 6 to 8 hours. That’s a long time without protein. Could you imagine going throughout your day (when awake) not eating 6 to 8 hours? Don’t let your body starve overnight. Feed your muscles and let your metabolism run all night long – building muscle while you sleep. Right before bed is important. 3. Right upon waking. Same thing, you’ve just gone 6 to 8 hours without proper nutrition. Your body needs protein quick. 4. Half hour before a workout. This sets up the “anabolic window” before your workout and provides your muscles with adequate nutrition so that the effects of weight training (weight training breaks down muscle–called catabolic)are not as severe. These are the best times for protein. however, your post-workout protein drink should be a whey shake as whey protein is absorbed quickly.

Coach what's the best way of "engaging your core?"

John

Hey Coach Wayne, in p90x they talk about how the 1st hour after the workout is the "window" where your body takes in the nutrients you eat quickly, but I don't like taking any supplements such as protein powders or bars, so I just try and eat healthy. I heard that chocolate milk is a good alternative to the recovery drink, is that true? And if so, how much should I drink and would putting sugar make a difference? Should I also eat fruits post-workout? If so can you please specify the types of fruits that would benefit me the most.

Tim
Tim

And if I'm going to alternate should I also throw in the abs/core routine from p90x+?

Tim
Tim

Coach i'm doubling down on nutrition now, but if I want do to some extra work, should I do both ARX and X2AR on the same day after an exercise, or should I just alternate between them every 2 days? Provided I can push myself to do both of them after an exercise.

Tim
Tim

Can you fill me in on the "Double down on nutrition" part? :p and would ab ripper x2 help me work on lower abs more? Since I only have results on my upper abs from ab ripper x

Tim
Tim

Coach I'm currently doing p90x, and i'm on phase 3 right now. I can see a difference with my abs, but I was wondering if I can replace ab ripper x with ab ripper x2 from p90x2, do you think I would get more results doing that in the last month?

Dirk
Dirk

I've just completed phase of p90x however I have not been seeing any results on mid section, I haven't seen any abs. I've been following the diets rigorously, I've noticed a lot of changes in my upper body and legs however nothing in the ab area. I weight about 160 height 5'11 any advise.

Thanks coach, I lift about 5kg(I know just a start) right now on back and biceps, and I manage to do around 15 on most exercises, so how much do you think I should raise the weight up to?

Abdullah
Abdullah

Coach there's something that I don't understand in the p90x videos. Tony Horton explains that if we want size we have to do 8-10 reps, but if we want lean we have to do 12-15. Well does that mean that if I want big muscles that I should pick a heavier weight and do only 8-10 rather than pick a lighter weight and do 12-15 reps to get pumped?

Ok. I am going to do the P90X/Insanity hibird next round but I don't want to buy Insanity until I finish round one of P90X. Thanks for all your help!

Jason

I am about to start the 3rd phase in P90X and I was wondering if I could swap out Yoga for another cardio workout(cardiox or kenpox). The reason why is I am getting great results so far but I still have a belly and I want to get rid of it ASAP. I dont mind Yoga(i actually like it), I just want to get my body fat down faster.

Thanks for the quick reply coach, the info is appreciated. I'll be sure to post some before and after shots when the 90 days is over, hopefully I can help represent Team Ripped! The first three weeks has flown by! Cheers, -Matt

Hey coach! I'm on week 3 now, and while I'm not at the level to worry about this too much yet, I was wondering if you personally need more than the 52.5 lbs that the Bowflex weights offer. I'm doing 40+ lbs on some of my exercises now and imagine that by day 90 those same exercises will need more than 52.5 lbs (or at least I hope, haha). Did you buy additional free weights, or do you just do more reps at 52.5? Thanks in advance! Cheers, -Matt

Thanks for encouraging me to keep going coach. I did the workout. I didn't bring it as hard as I would have liked to, but I stuck it out and did everything I could. I would say I completed 90% of the workout at about 20% less weight than I would have liked. Thanks again!

Hey Coach, Quick question. I am on day 3 of P90X classic getting ready to do shoulders and arms in a few hours. Problem is, I am so sore from chest and back still that I am unsure if I would be able to give today the effort I would like. I will still do the workout by all means, but is it worth it to wait a day for a bit more time to rest? I don't think it will present a safety issue or anything, and I am not injured, I am just so tight and sore in my chest that I don't quite have full range of motion or strength back yet. Let me know. If I don't hear before my scheduled workout time, I am gonna go ahead and do what I can. Thanks!

Coach when you transformed you body for the first time and first round , you just used the P90x program ? or you added the 1 on 1 and the insanity? I want really want to transform my body in 3 months , whats your suggestion should i just use the p90x program or add more programs ? Thanks

Mario

Hi Wayne, I have been a week already with the program and it's pretty exhausting. So I hope this will pay off :) I just have 2 questions. Because of time constraint, I am working out early morning but sometimes I need to rush to finish Ab RipperX to get the work and I think I am not getting the best results. Does it matter if I split the sessions in two? Mornings the body weight exercises and afternoons just Ab Ripper X? Would changing the schedule could affect performance? My second question is regarding the diet. I am following your advice to start with Fat Shredder on 1900 calories (50%, 30% 20%). I am calculating my food for the week and normally I get close to my numbers on fat, carbs or protein but I am short on cal, or any other combination possible. What is my margin of error where I could feel I am hitting my goal? Thanks again for your imput!!! I feel the pain but it's a good pain.
