What You Should Know

List of Ingredients
The official website for P90X does not go into detail about the three phase nutritional diet plan. The workouts consist of twelve different routines including: ‘Chest & Back’, ‘Plyometrics’, ‘Shoulders & Arms’, ‘Yoga X’, ‘Legs & Back’, ‘Kenpo X’, ‘X Stretch’, ‘Core Synergistics’, ‘Chest, Shoulders & Triceps’, ‘Back & Biceps’, ‘Cardio X’, and ‘Ab Ripper X’.
‘Muscle Confusion’ is a workout strategy used in the P90X program which is said to be the secret behind its success. New moves and routines are continuously introduced to the muscles so there is never a point of plateau. There are “twelve highly diverse and intense workouts.”

There are several success stories and customer testimonials on the official website for P90X. It is good that participants in the P90X program can interact with their peers to receive support which may help them stick with their diet and workouts. Participants also get access to fitness experts online if they have questions or concerns. One concern is that participants need to be able to do pull-ups as part of the plan. A pull-up bar needs to be purchased in addition to the program materials. Our concern is that most people can not do pull-ups so the plan is obviously not for people who are out of shape. It does not appear that the P90X plan is for everyone. It is a negative that extra equipment must be purchased such as a pull-up bar and resistance bands. It would be better if these items were included in the purchase price of the program. The good thing is that the P90X plan is affordable for the average consumer at about $100.00 which includes shipping. P90X carries a generous money back guarantee for a full 90 days. Videos on the official P90X website can help educate consumers and help them decide if this program is right for them.
