P90x

Good? Bad?
I've seen this on TV and i am still on the fence. I have a hard time believing these kind of ads.
Any personal feedback?

definatley works but you need to follow the diet just as much as the workouts.

as for MMA goes it would be a good starting point to build strengh also the plyometrics are amazing for explosivness

really...? surprising. i thought that whole muscle confusion was a load of crap until i heard some MMA fighter from UFC talk about it.
Doesn't cost too much?

its 100$ up here in canada at costco

the only problem is thats not the only cost you will need to have some weights or bands and a chinup bar is a good idea

Bascially all P90x is, is a program that is charging you money in exchange for telling you what muscle confusion is.

Basically, if you want results just change up your workout every 6-8 weeks

while to a point you are right, the workouts are pretty good which is what your really paying for (the schedule can be modified depending on your needs.

Also the diet guide that comes with it is pretty kick ass (most people probably know the info thats inside if youve been around fitness) but it does come with recipes that are pretty good

also there is something different from squating 2 plates 4x6 times or whatever to doing different types of squauts a couple hundred times

It's a conditioning program, about as useful for gaining strength as powerlifting to run a marathon.

It's overpriced, and I have heard a lot of bad shit about the company screwing people.

It doesn't tell you anyhting you can't easily find out for free.

Download it illegally if you must.

The one thing it is good for is motivation, if you suck at staying consistent yourself.

And no you should not believe those kind of infomercials.

I'd have to disagree. Simply 'changing' your routine isn't going to achieve amazing results. Most people see, "change your routine" think of it as instead of doing Leg Press, Hack Squats, etc etc. I will do an extra set and do DB Squats, or Romanian Deadlifts with DB instead of BB. It will help, don't get me wrong. But muscle confusion is much deeper.

Muscle confusion to a sense isn't exactly just that. Muscle confusion has a lot to do with changing up the pace, rep-range, and all the other intricacies in the bodybuilding/physical fitness realm.

For instance, instead of training the conventional Chest/Tricep day. They pair up Chest/Back..opposing muscle groups. I personally love the split set-up as I have achieved great results.

If you don't want to do p90x I would suggest doing a circuits in a gym. I do 2 exercises with rather heavy weight and will do either a bodyweight exercise (focusing on core movement), jumprope, or a specific ab exercise.

I'd also suggest getting a heart-rate monitor (watch your breathing), and try and keep a sustained heart of 140-150ish (thats a range that feels good to me, everyone WILL be different).

Best of luck.
