Hey Coach,  I signed up on this site 5 years ago.   I posted my before and after pictures on a message board i think.   I know i posted them someplace on here.   I lost all my pictures on my computer.  Any idea where those pictures might have gone on your site.  Any help would be awesome

@Jaycat9  Can't find anything man! We removed the forum when most of the groups went to Facebook. So sorry! I will check through my email too... do you think you ever sent them in that way?

@CoachWayne @Jaycat9 I'm not sure.  I am going to try to have my pictures pulled off my computer.   I became a coach a few weeks ago and i was trying to show my before and afters.   I lost 129 pounds back then with the first p90x.  I gained some back so i am back at it again.  This time for good.    Its just a lot easier to put value on your pages with proof to show it.   I do appreciate you looking though for sure.

Hey Coach,
Im hitting P90X original on Sunday to mix things up and am curious as to what you recommend for # of reps to shoot for on the first and second set (same workout)? Im shooting to gain some size. Ive done body beast and was wondering if I could take some of the similar principles regarding reps to P90x? Say in chest and back do 15 reps the first set and 8 reps the second?
What are your recommendations?

Thanks again!

@KRSmith  Sure! You will just probably need extra weight for things like push ups and pull ups. But with Shoulders and Arms, that would be fine to do!

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! :/

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 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

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
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?
