coach, just finished up 1st round of BB two weeks ago and will start P90x tonight. i do not like the yoga at all and was wondering in your opinion if it was a great asset to your results.
P90X is a revolutionary system of 12 sweat-inducing, muscle-pumping workouts, designed to transform your body from regular to ripped in just 90 days. You’ll also receive a comprehensive 3-phase nutrition plan, specially designed supplement options, a detailed fitness guide, a calendar to track your progress, online peer support, and much more. Your personal trainer, Tony Horton, will keep you engaged every step of the way, and you won’t believe your results!
**Bonus** Anyone who buys P90X through their coach (me!) will get the following absolutely FREE =
1) 5 Bonus P90X PLUS workouts on 4 DVD’s (see below for details)
2) 2 free DVD’s from Tony Horton’s 1-on-1 series. It includes Fountain of Youth Yoga (a nice — shorter — yoga option for those who don’t like the 90 minute Yoga X), and Mammoth UML (Upper Middle Lower), a great full-body workout. These are a $40 value! What a deal!! Just make sure you order through your coach, because otherwise you won’t get these extra free DVD’s!
When you receive P90X, you will receive 12 DVD’s, along with a Fitness Guide and Nutrition Guide. The Fitness Guide has about 100 pages that go into great detail about each of the workouts and how to do the exercises, allowing you to go to the gym and do the workouts if you would like. The Nutrition Guide is a comprehensive 3 phase guide that explains how, what, and when to eat. I really like the Meal Plan because it outlines exactly what foods you should eat every day. You will also need to have the P90X Pull-Up bar, which is excellent because you don’t have to attach it to anything. All you have to have is a door frame wide enough to hold it. Once you begin the program, you’re quickly going to realize why the program is so effective! For one thing, you are going to be extremely sore during the first few weeks! I know I was! When Beachbody talks about muscle confusion, they aren’t kidding!
I started the program at 255 lbs and 22% body fat. After the first month, I had lost 20 lbs and about 9% body fat, and was already in the best shape of my life, and knew that it was only going to get better. When day 90 rolled around, I had lost a total of 43 lbs and 15% body fat, and was absolutely ripped! I finished with just 7% body fat! That’s CRAZY!! I still can’t believe how amazing the results are with P90X!
People literally could not believe my transformation, and immediately wanted to know what I did. I told them that “if you are able to commit yourself to this program that you too could get into the best shape of your life!” If you’re one of those people who are tired of being out of shape and ready for a change, click below to try P90X today! It worked for me and it can for you too!
The secret behind the P90X system is an advanced training technique called Muscle Confusion™, which accelerates the results process by constantly introducing new moves and routines so your body never plateaus, and you never get bored! Whether you want to get lean, bulk up, or just plain get ripped, there’s an endless variety of ways to mix and match the routines to keep you motivated the full 90 days and beyond!

coach, just finished up 1st round of BB two weeks ago and will start P90x tonight. i do not like the yoga at all and was wondering in your opinion if it was a great asset to your results.
@BrandonDodds Shhh... don't tell anyone, but I didn't do yogax! LOL I felt the same way. I ended up using Core Synergistics and just went from there. I don't think it hurt my results at all!
Coach, do you have any tips on washing hip pain? I noticed yesterday when I was doing my chest and back workout that I had major pain pain in my hips when doing assisted pushups. I'm not sure if its my form but even when doing ab ripper I noticed the pain too. I was disappointed that I couldn't do a lot of the ab workout because of the pain but I still tried even though it wasn't my best. Idk if its normal since I'm so out of shape or if should consult my doctor.
@IsraelRivera The hip pain is most likely from ARX. Most likely a hip flexor. ARX is whole core, so you hit your hip flexors. Google "couch stretch." That can help stretch out your hip flexors. The discomfort will get better. Your body is doing a lot of changing right now!
Thank you Wayne, I am already doing all that, but I am wondering if I should stick with the 3 phases and do a 2nd round, or do this round with all fat shredder and next round with 1 month of energy booster and the other 2 months with endurance maximizer. What should I do?
@ArmandoQuintal Wanting to lose 33#, I would still run Fat Shredder and a deficit. Then change up goals when you are within 1-2% of your BF goal.
Hi Wayne, I just recently started p90x a week ago, and I am doing exactly what it tells me to do with my nutrition, but I am not sure of how much weight I should use, I am using the bands and have no pull up bar and I want to lose 33 pounds, what do you suggest, I am commited to this
@ArmandoQuintal Awesome work! 39# is great!
I would start, if you are not already, tracking your nutrition. Check out http://www.teamripped.com/nutrition-tracking and get a deficit and Fat Shredder set up with MyFitnessPal. Two good places for that are http://www.teamripped.com/calorie-calculator and http://www.teamripped.com/myfitnesspal-set-up
Could anyone tell me how I am able to watch the P90X videos on my android tablet when I am away every week (I work for an airline) or do i still have to lug my laptop around with me? Thanks in advance and looking forward to brining it!!
@Alessandro I know there are ways to save DVDs to your hard drive if you have real discs. I just use the DVDs, but you should be able to google the process.
@Kwabs Unfortunately no. That is only through BB.com not Team Beachbody.
Hi Coach Wayne, pls, I wanted to ask if i could make the protein shake without shakeology, also should i strictly stick with the P90X protein bar or can i get another protein bar and lastly im on level I and out of the 3 phases, i find phase 2 to be the best for me so can i stick with it throughout the 90 days (even though i wanna lose some fat and put on lean muscles) or do i have to change it at some point?
@Kwabs Use whey to hit your protein goals. I would recommend actually tracking your nutrition. Check out: www.teamripped.com/portion-plan
You can stick with the same deficit and macros until you hit your goal. Fat Shredder will produce faster results, but listen to your body.
Hey coach, I'm on week 6 of a Insanity/P90 Hybrid program. Your calculator said that I with a 500 Calorie deficit, I should be ingesting 2136 cal/day (50/30/20). I started the program at 6' 180lbs/20% BF. At the end of week 4 took another pic but my belly fat and love handles didn't seem to budge. I busted my but those first 4 weeks and ate perfect, weighed all my food. I did notice a small difference but just not as much as I would of hoped. In week 5, I lowered my calorie intake to 1936 and started playing tennis 3x a week. This morning (Day1 week 6) I weighed in at 177lbs and maybe down to 17%. The thing that now concerns me is if I'm eating too few calories?
This morning I burned 640cals during P90x and burned 620cals in the evening playing tennis. I feel pretty good as far as energy goes despite playing tennis in 90* temps. If I feel ok, should I stay at 1936cals or go back to 2136?
Edit: I did a little more reading and I t looks like I should be fine at 1936cals. I guess once I'm down to 10% BF, I'll try a clean bulk and add 300cals to my Maintenance.
Luis, I would stay put. Are you actually measuring BF or just looking at pics? You will lose BF at different rates from different areas of your body. So your love handles could hold onto it longer. I would use some calipers and actually see what is truly going on. You could be adding muscle and slowly losing BF which would not produce a large change in weight. Keep up the good work! If you are putting in that much work and being that accurate, you will see HUGE changes. You are just dialing it in!
@CoachWayne Hey Coach, I'm using the 4 point system with the caliper. I probably had most of the the body fat around my upper thighs, so maybe that's why its taking the longer around the stomach? I just weighed myself and I'm at 176.4 so 4lbs in 5 weeks seems right. From the pics it doesn't seem like I added new muscle. It's hard for me to up the weight due to the deficit. I have kept the little muscle I had with the help of creatine and BCAA. I'm sure once I go into the bulk stage and add some cals and weight, I'll start to build muscle. I still have 8 weeks to go, so a lot can happen in that time. thanks again coach. Can't weight to put on some muscle, so I can buy one of those team ripped shirts :)
So you have lost 4 lbs in 5 weeks? That is a really good and safe pace for losing BF. If you have a higher concentration in one area, it may just take longer to notice those changes. You can't spot train fat so you have to wait for your overall BF to decrease enough for those hard places to drop. Stick with it man!
Coach - Two quesitons - I am on week 3 of P90x, did a full round a few years ago with good results but fell off the program, gained weight, etc. I am now totally committed and after reading through your site would like to get you as my coach. I already have a beachbody account, not sure if I have a coach already, how do I sign up!
Second, last time I did the program I had to stop doing Chest, Shoulders & Tri because it was aggravating an old shoulder injury where Shoulders & Arms does not. My question - for week 5 do I just stick with Shoulders & Arms? If that is the case I assume I should just do the same exercizes as Week 1-3.
@FaMaK If you already have a teambeachbody account, you will have to make a coach "switch" to choose me, which involves sending an email to email@example.com telling them you want WAYNE WYATT #180334, at firstname.lastname@example.org to be your coach. Then CC me on the email so I can follow up with them and be sure the switch is made.
Then if you really think that CST will give you problems again, you could go back into month 1 after your recovery week. I would be tempted it try it again though and just really watch it. Go slowly and feel it out.
Glad to have you back at it!
Today was day 1 P90x and I loved it! Nice change up from just finishing Insanity. Coach, can you or anyone one a Ipad app to track progress. Did not hear the best reviews on the BB app and its iPhone only. Anyone?
Finishing up Insanity this Friday!!!! 5'9 weight 149 BF ~10.5%. Want to start p90x Saturday but have some basics. 1) abs are just about there but in terms of diet don't want to lose anymore, in fact would like to build some muscle but lean ripped muscle, not bulk. Do I stick to the 50/30/20 or 40/40/20? Should I run a deficit calorie wise ( currently eating about 1450-1500 and 45/35/20) or follow the 149*10 + (149*.20) + 600 = 2400? Seems like a big jump calorie wise for me (+ 900). Need help.
Hey coach I'm started week 9 of p90x and really was feeling tired out by about half way through Ab ripper. Do you know why this might have happened??? Thanks for the help
Hey Coach I was wondering why I would stop losing any weight and very little bf if I am on week 8 of p90x and have been trying my best at eating healthy considering I'm a teen lol and have not missed a single workout?? Thanks for the help.
Hey Coach I was wondering if you knew of any non-supplemental protein snacks that are good to eat? Thanks
Hey Coach, I was wondering when you should usually start to see definition in your abs? I weigh 184, im 6'2" and I'm on week 6 of p90x.
I am starting a round of p90x, and yesterday I did chest and back. But the thing was that when I was doing heavy pants I felt the pull in my lower back, so I really suspect I am doing it wrong and I don't want to hurt my back trying to get fit. What is the correct form for doing that move? or more general, what's the correct form to lift weight when your back is inclined?
Thanks a lot
I am just finishing up week 13 of p90x and I feel great. I want to keep on going but I can't afford to invest in one of the other programs yet. Should I start a second round of p90x right away or do I needto take a break for a while. Also I have been on the 1900 cal fat shredder diet for the entire 90 days, but when I started I was WAY out of shape so I still have a ways to go to get down to the bf% I would like. Should I continue with fat shredder or switch it up for a bit? As always your advice and motivation has been invaluable I wouldn't have made it through these last 90 days without this site and your help.
I am a 14 year old who is 5'8 and 140 lbs. I am thinking about doing P90x to get in shape for my first year of high school football which starts in the summer. I think of myself as the skinny-fat kid. With cloths on I look skinny, but when the shirt comes off, the belly and love handles come up. I was just wondering if I should do P90X classic and add Insanity for the cardio days. My goal is to get rid of the belly and love handles and gain muscle throughout my body(especially abs). Do you think thats a good goal for 90 days? I am also wondering if 1680-2280 calories is enough calories to consume a day. Thanks! Nolan
Yesterday was my last day insanity and fittest and did even as p90x test. the only thing I could do was pull ups, I do not manage to lift myself up hah. I am glad that insanity is ready. I held on to an injury to my knees and it is still keenly felt, so I hope it does not get in the way will be for p90x. I've had good results from insanity, month two was supper hard but worth it. Today I start p90x and I was wondering if there are things to look out and or do. you might have tips for me? and what the paper is concerned what exactly do I write in the workouts? is not clear to me. All tips are welcome Coach so please teach me how to do it for p90x and I will 4ever grateful.
Coach I am not as sore on my back as i would like to be in the of my back Workouts in P90X. I currently step up from a chair and pull up to a chin up bar. I rep up to 14-18 reps. I feel that i may not be bringing it as much as i can . Would getting the bands make any difference? I am 6' 3" and have a lot of fat to lose and also want to gain muscle along the way.
Hi coach. I seem to have tweaked or pulled a muscle trying to do pull ups. Everytime that I try to do one now the muscle running from right under my armpit down my back gives out. Do you have any suggestions for exercises that I can do instead of pull ups until the muscle heals?
Hey Coach! I just started with P90X and about the first week done not missing one day but i was wondering about cardio since i am following the classic calendar, would it be better to add cardio X on the same day that another workout and if so which one and how often / week?
Hi coach Wayne ! I have 184 lbs, 6.0 ft, 23y and 22% bf. I want grow more muscles and get bf about 10% in 180 days. Wouldnt it be just as effective to do body beast frst to gain size and strength then do p90x to get low bodyfat and even more strenth or reverse? Bye from Croatia
hi coach wayne i got my gear i got my p90X i am in South africa BTW right i started i find it really really hard this is my 3rd day i wont give up but wat i do need to ask is is it better to do in the morning before work or after work wat do u think is best results
Coach I am in week 3 of p90x and loving it. I already feel better than I have in years. However, I am really struggling with Yoga. Not so much physically I can reasonably do most of the moves but just from a motivation standpoint I really don't enjoy that workout. Would it be ok to swap out yoga for cardio or stretching or even both?
Loving P90x so far. I had to add resistance via bands or backpack to my pushups in the second week because I don't want to lose chest strength (I transitioned from benching pretty heavy at a gym over to this program) so I try to keep my reps down in the 10-12 range. I am also trying to equalize amount of reps I can do in pullups pretty equal to what I do in pushups. Maybe my logic is a bit off here, but I think it will work well.
hey need help. I got two Q and hopefully you have the A. 1. can I work out at the gym, so lets say thats two more workouts more then just the p90x program is thats ok or too much. 2. I want t lose some fat but are the cals the nutrion book gave me ok to eat or do I need less.
Hey Wayne, thanks for all the great info on this site! You really help fill in some of the gaps, especially in the P90X Nutrition Guide. So thanks for that. A question on Legs & Back: You occasionally allude to not being very fond of the L&B routine (my estimation, I could be wrong). If that's the case, could you elaborate a bit on what you wish was different with it? Maybe some exercises you would substitute for others in that routine to get more out of it? I say that because in my experience, the first half of L&B is KILLER. I love the various squats and leg work going on. But the second half feels less impressive, almost silly at points (Sneaky lunges? Groucho walk? Really? LOL!) Would you substitute in more squats or something else at that point? I know you trade P90X+ or Insanity's Upper Body routines for L&B in some of your hybrids, but I don't want to lose the extra pull-ups on that 3rd lifting day of the week. I really feel like my back gets a lot of strong reinforcement at that point, and like I said, I DO enjoy the first half of Legs & Back very much! Apologies for the long message, just curious for your input. Thanks for everything, Wayne!
Hey Coach! I hope you are doing fine. Here is my issue: I've just finished Insanity three weeks ago and last monday i've started with P90X. Insanity was awsome and really kicked my butt. However, now i feel that P90X doesn't make my heart rate rise as much as it raised with Insanity. Moreover, today i did Kenpo X and never reach "the zone" even though i was going at a quicker pace than the video. I want to know if this is normal or if i'm doing something wrong. Thank you! your page is grate!
I would like for this email to go to Coach Wayne, please. I have some issues and I WANT TO DO THIS PROGRAM somehow, someway. I've looked at P90X many times over the past few years. But, I have not really gone further with ordering it until I found that I can walk at a steady pace on an elevated treadmill. Due to a Meningioma tumor operation to my brain in 2005 I have post operative permanent peripheral neuropathy (drop foot) and paralysis to my left leg especially to the ankle/foot area of my left foot. The toes on my left foot do not move upward or downward. I have severely injured my ankle and broken my big toe more than a few in the past,each time by accident. I am more active now that I am using an (APO) brace similar to the toeOFF brace ($199.99) mfg'd by Allard USA see YOUTUBE Allard USA • Beth Deloria and I have been injury free ever since. Though Ms. Deloria's injury was to a back injury, mine is from the nerve in the brain being permanently "not connected", so the Dr. said? My questions to you Coach Wayne are how much jumping, running, balance, side to side movements etc. are involved in the initial P90x program. I can walk. I cannot jog or run. My balance if iffy at faster than normal movements (jumping jacks). If and where there are portions of the exercise program(s) can I use the treadmill in place of jumping, running, balance, etc. Thank you for your time. Noel
on the program do i have to follow the nutrition phases in the same order as the work out phases. I have a litle more excess body fat so can I do the fat shredder phase aslong as I want to or need to.
