So I have come to the end of my P90X routine and thought I would share my thoughts about it in-case anyone want to do it too.
Gets you fitLow cost (saves a gym membership)Saves time in the dayTones you out very nicely (increased definition)IntenseSome good recipes!Can do at home
If you were to ask me if P90X worked I would say it does, but you have to work with it. The diet is pretty good and simple to follow if you are organised,

It was chest and back day yesterday, which I have been using as my bench-mark day for measuring improvement.

Nearly over now, seem some great improvements, very lean and defined, not much gained but definite improvements. The last 2 weekends have had a rocky diet as I have been away, but other than that I have stuck to it.
Starting to think what the plan is after, but this workout can easily be done for over 3 months. so I may do it for an extra month after xmas, there is still some yoga move that I struggle with, and it took me a few weeks to get the weights right for some of the moves
Back and chest yesterday, a good fun workout lol

Standard reps: 45/35 (80) (last time I did a total of: 74)
