Description:

Tired of ineffective workouts that sound great but produce less-than-optimal results? Turn to the P90X Extreme Home Fitness system, a bundle of 12 sweat-inducing, muscle-pumping workouts designed to transform your body from regular to ripped in just 90 days. Hosted by personal trainer Tony Horton, the series of DVDs will help you get lean, bulk up, or grow stronger, with an endless variety of mix-and-match routines to keep you motivated. The secret behind the P90X system is an advanced training technique called "muscle confusion," which accelerates the fitness process by constantly introducing new moves and routines so that your body never plateaus and you never get bored. The more you confuse the muscle, the harder your body has to work to keep up. And the more variety you put into your workout, the better and faster your results will be. By breaking old routines and opening new doors, secondary and tertiary muscles are constantly being activated and developed.

In addition to the 12 DVD workouts, the P90X comes with a comprehensive three-phase nutrition plan, specially designed supplement options, a detailed fitness guide packed with valuable information on how to get the most from your program, a How to Bring It DVD that provides a quick overview of the system, a calendar to track your progress, online peer support, and much more.

The DVD Workouts
Each of the 12 highly diverse and intense DVD workouts focuses on either a specific set of muscle groups or a unique training technique.

  • Workout One: Chest & Back. This superset chest-and-back-blasting workout emphasizes two classic upper-body exercises--push-ups and pull-ups--to build strength and develop shape. The combination of these two push and pull movements will help you burn loads of calories while simultaneously attacking, strengthening, and developing multiple muscle groups.

  • Workout Two: Plyometrics. Get ready to go airborne. Offering more 30 explosive jumping moves, this intense cardio routine will keep you in the air most of the time. Plyometrics, also known as jump training, has been proven to dramatically improve athletic performance. If your sport involves a ring, rink, field, court, or track, this training will give you the edge. Just be prepared to "bring it" for a full hour when you leap into this workout, because there is no letting up.

  • Workout Three: Shoulders & Arms. Nothing rounds out the perfect physique like a pair of well-defined arms and shoulders, and with its potent combination of pressing, curling, and fly movements, this routine will leave you feeling stronger and looking sexier. Whether you want to build muscle mass or just slim and tighten what you've already got, these targeted shoulder and arm exercises will give you the results you want.

  • Workout Four: Yoga X. Yoga is a vital part of any fitness regimen, and is an absolute must for an extreme program like P90X. This routine combines strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, and breath work to enhance your physique and calm your mind. Yoga X will leave you feeling energized, invigorated, and maybe even a little enlightened.

  • Workout Five: Legs & Back. Get ready to squat, lunge, and pull for a total-body workout like no other. While the main focus of this workout lies in strengthening and developing the leg muscles (quads, hamstrings, glutes, and calves), there are also a handful of great pull-up exercises to give your legs a quick breather while you work the upper body.

  • Workout Six: Kenpo X. Kenpo X was created to give P90X users a high-intensity cardiovascular workout packed with lots of punching and kicking combinations to improve balance, endurance, flexibility, and coordination. During this workout you'll learn some of the most effective ways to defend yourself, while at the same time getting your body in peak condition.

  • Workout Seven: X Stretch. Stretching is the one thing that will help you achieve a higher level of athleticism over a longer period of time. The X Stretch routine is an integral part of the program, as it helps prevent injuries and avoid plateaus. The extensive full-body stretches that make up this routine use disciplines from Kenpo karate, hatha yoga, and various sports to ensure that your body is fully prepared to meet all P90X challenges head-on.

  • Workout Eight: Core Synergistics. Each and every exercise in the Core Synergistics workout recruits multiple muscle groups to build and support the core (lumbar spine and trunk muscles), while at the same time conditioning your body from head to toe. Loaded with a variety of fun, unique, and challenging exercises, this routine will get you moving in all directions to maximize your P90X results.

  • Workout Nine: Chest, Shoulders, & Triceps. Packed with an array of moves that target both large and small muscles, this workout will do wonders for your upper body. In just one full sequence you'll get a healthy dose of presses, flys, and extensions to push you to the brink. The results will be a stronger, leaner, and highly defined upper torso that will leave you looking awesome, with or without a shirt.

  • Workout 10: Back & Biceps. With a host of curls and pull-ups, this routine will make it fun to flex those powerful biceps. But don't worry, ladies--by using lighter weight, you can focus on toning and tightening these showcase arm muscles without adding the size that most guys covet. Additionally, this workout also provides some great back definition that everyone can appreciate. Regardless of your goals, you will achieve them in dramatic fashion if you dig in and max out your reps.

  • Workout 11: Cardio X. This low-impact cardio routine can be used in a variety of ways to meet your P90X goals. Use it in addition to your standard P90X workload when you want to burn some extra calories, or as a substitute if your body needs a break from the program's high-impact workouts. Whatever your reason for using Cardio X, you'll find it a fun, full-throttle, fat-burning workout that will leave you feeling lean and mean.

  • Workout 12: Ab Ripper X. The combination and sequence of movements in this unique workout taps into not only abdominal strength, but true core strength as well. Master these 11 highly effective exercises and you will achieve vital abdominal muscle strength to benefit your overall health and physical performance. You'll also develop that highly coveted six-pack as you take Ab Ripper X to full throttle. It's extreme work that's better than any machine in any club.
The Nutrition Plan
Following the P90X nutrition plan is just as vital to your overall success as any of the extreme workouts in this program. Specifically designed to work in tandem with the P90X workout routines, this three-phase eating plan recommends the perfect combination of foods to satisfy your body's energy needs every step of the way. P90X is not about quick fixes or miracle diets. It's about selecting the healthy foods that you want to eat, and determining the portion amounts that will provide your body with the right amount of fuel to excel during exercise. The P90X nutrition plan offers three phases. Phase 1 is the Fat Shredder, a high-protein-based diet designed to help you strengthen your muscles while simultaneously and rapidly shedding fat from your body. Phase 2 is the Energy Booster, a balanced mix of carbohydrates and proteins with a lower amount of fat to achieve additional energy for performance. And Phase 3 is the Endurance Maximizer, an athletic diet of complex carbohydrates, lean proteins, and lower fat, with the emphasis on more carbohydrates. You'll need this combination of foods as fuel to get the most out of your final few weeks and truly be in the best shape of your life.

44-1/2 stars from me  Jan 02, 2010
The tip of the day, kids, is that P90X makes me happy. :) I finished the Lean version a couple of days ago, on New Year's Eve.

I am a 30 year old female who has worked out and eaten healthily my whole life. A few months ago, one of my hubby's co-workers gave him the P90X DVDs. I was thrilled because I had been intrigued by the infomercial, but wasn't sure if the product was good enough to spend a lot of money on. At first, I just wanted to watch the DVDs to get some new moves to use at the gym, but after watching them, I was so impressed that I decided to do the entire program. We didn't receive the diet plan, so my comments are based solely upon the workouts.

I purchased a portable DVD player and did the weight and yoga DVDs in my gym's aerobics room, which worked out quite well. I have a cheap gym membership, and it worked out to be more inexpensive to do what I did rather than going out and buying a bunch of weights and a pull-up bar. I also wanted to keep the cardio options that I had at the gym (more on that later).

Some readers may wonder about weight loss. I did not lose anything on the program; however, I have had a lot of health issues crop up this past year that are preventing me from losing weight. My doc is working with me on that. I know for a fact that it is not the program's fault that I didn't lose weight (hypothyroid, hormone, adrenal, and gluten issues, anyone?), so definitely try the program if you are otherwise healthy and want to try to lose weight. I'm sure you'd see results!

I am so impressed with the gains that I've seen from doing the Lean version that I'm starting the Classic version today. I'm a little scared to do Plyos once a week, but I know I'll keep getting great results.

My biggest piece of advice is to write everything down like Tony says (how many reps, weight used, etc.). I ignored that pointer when I started, and I began regretting it around week 6 or 7. I was feeling stronger and would've loved to see the proof on paper.

In a nutshell, here's the breakdown from my point of view:

PROS
* I have gotten so much stronger since doing this program. I can now do plyo push-ups!
* I am also more flexible. My hubby can't believe the yoga poses I can do now.
* Tony and the gang are fun and inspirational. Tony was 45 when he did these DVDs and he was in great shape. I saw him on QVC recently. Now 50, Tony is still tearing it up! I hope I'm in such good shape when I get to be that age. I love that the DVDs are serious workouts, yet you are still having fun and laughing at the same time. Some of the co-hosts are older, and one guy has only one leg, so knowing that those people can get through the workouts motivates me to do my best even more.
* I have workout ADD. This program offers variety and keeps me interested.
* I never have to think about what I'm going to work out on which day. It's all laid out for me.
* The DVDs are easily navigable; it's simple to skip a move if you want/need to. I also like that the music can be turned off. And when I want to quit, it helps to see the timer on the bottom of the screen so I know I only have a certain amount of time before my reps are done. It's easier to keep going when you know you only have, say, 10 seconds left.
* I enjoy yoga now. I used to do yoga maybe 3 times a year, a half hour at a time. I didn't "get" yoga. I loved cardio-running, hiking, cycling, and kickboxing, along with 2-3 days/week of weight lifting, were my routine. When I first watched the yoga DVD, I was shocked that it was an hour and a half. But I gave it a chance because Tony said he's in the shape he's in because of yoga, not because of pull-ups. The first time I did it, it didn't seem like it was that long. Over time, I started enjoying it quite a bit. Now my body (and mind) craves yoga.
* The moves aren't easily mastered. Even though I'm in shape, I still can't do every single move for as long as Tony and the co-hosts can. I still have things to strive for even though I've been through the program one round.
* There are options presented-you can use weights or bands, or you can modify if needed.

CONS
* I've done a lot of workout DVDs in my day, and the norm is for the hosts to refer to your directional side, not theirs. That way you can mirror their movements, which makes it easier to stay coordinated. (For example, if they say to march on your left foot, it is your left side, not their left.) Tony doesn't do this, and it gets on my nerves a little bit. Frequently, when he says to do something on the left, I start doing it on the left and then get confused when I look at the screen because I should be doing it on my right. (Yes, I'm blonde, can you tell?)
* Sometimes unilateral reps aren't even on both sides. For example, the knee to forehead move in Yoga is done one extra time on one side. Some poses are held longer on one side, too. Make sure you keep track in your head how many reps you do on each side so you stay even.
* The Yoga DVD has a yoga belly section. I don't understand why, when it's placed in-between days that you do Ab Ripper X. Tony says himself in the Ab Ripper X DVD that you shouldn't work out your abs every day. I just skip through that part on the Yoga DVD, but it's annoying to have to ruin my yoga flow to fast forward.
* Like other posters have said, the Cardio and Kenpo DVDs are too easy. I substituted with running, cycling, hiking, Plyometrics, or someone else's cardio DVD for those days.
* I don't like the up, down, up, down of the Core Synergistics DVD. I'd rather do all the floor work, then stand up. I felt like I spent more time getting up and down than anything else.
* Tony does get a bit too chatty in spots. I'm like, "X me, X me!" and he's still talking. Sometimes I like the short break, but sometimes not so much.

Overall, it's a great program, and I highly recommend it!

5Amazing Workout!  Jan 02, 2010
I am well-known as a gym rat! However, in the winter, I do enjoy a CHALLENGING workout at home. These 13 workouts (plus two bonus workouts) keep things fresh and new even to me, one who gets bored easily! The program has three levels, so I can work within this set for 9 months, and plan to! I am a fan of Tony Horton, and this p90x does not disappoint!

1Company doesn't support product.  Dec 31, 2009
Company sent bad disc. Does the dance on replacement...must call Amazon..etc. Recommend avoiding them as the bad discs are frequently mentioned in other reviews.

5husband loves it  Dec 31, 2009
I bought this for my husband after watching the infomercial on tv a few times and he really likes it. He says it is difficult but really gives you a good work out.

4AMAZING!!!!  Dec 29, 2009
I did the entire 90 days of p90x starting November of 2008. Since then I've become more dormant due to my job, but I'm getting back on track with insanity, and I'm considering mixing in some pieces from P90x/P90x+ and the 10 minute trainer. I can remember when I was doing it very well, however.

I have to say that I really loved this program when I did it. The nutrition part was fine (The suggestions were generally what I ate anyway), but my schedule was incredibly hectic. I was getting up at 5 am to go to class, and I was so tired in the day it would throw me off leaving me often with very little sleep on the weekdays. I stuck to it though.

I wasn't doing it for "The look" but to prepare me at the time to start practicing martial arts regularly again (Too bad my job made that a pipe dream lol). About three weeks in, however, my friends started to comment on how lean I had become. I was hoping to cut a little weight so I could make my weight cut for fighting easier (I sit around 170 with a cut to 155 at 5'11"). I didn't lose very much, but my build started to change dramatically to that of my past when I was practicing Boxing/Kickboxing/MMA six days a week.

Around seven weeks in I once took a look in the mirror. I just began feeling my muscles. I still didn't see what my friends saw, but I noticed my flexed muscles were incredibly hard and compact. I suddenly had this feeling of "YOU'RE BACK? Hello!" Lol

At the end of it I met my goals, but that's when the job hit even harder, and the muscle went away sadly. But it took a few months for them to calm. I was still happy.

The program kept me engaged while I did it. I would always sacrifice time for it, and while at first I had a mildly ill attitude towards it at times, it began to be very fun. I really like Tony Horton's attitude. He makes it fun, he's about get the job done, and keeps you engaged. Later it became not uncommon for me to end the last few minutes with a big smile.

I did go in sort of dumb and not realize that you had to be fairly fit to do it, but I was already in the top 1% of the Air Force for my age (21 then), so I was fine.

One thing I will applaud it even more for is that while doing it I did almost no long distance runs, and my 1.5 mile running time (While slower than my basic training time of 8:33) had little to no change at the end of the program. I was afraid not doing that it would mess me up, but that was not so.

I recommend this for anyone of a moderate level of fitness looking to enhance where they are. It will enhance you all around, but of course if you want to specialize in something such as building great amounts of strength, speed, endurance, and so on, then there are other options. Still, it wouldn't hurt if you had those goals in mind while using pieces of p90x to enhance. A lot of the separate movements are really good.

Good luck with your goals!
