I don't miss running 5 miles at 6 in the morning. Not a bit. I do miss the all-you-can-eat buffet style chowhall breakfast though.

Your muscles contract and relax. That's it. You cannot "confuse" them.

And you train them by consistently using them to do more (more weight or more repetitions) not by constantly switching things up.
Agreed. Only intellegent beings can become "confused". Muscles can't.

This discussion of P90X is stunning to me. If they were a vendor on this Forum using gimicks like "muscle confusion" (substitute "combustion confusion") we would run them out of town on a rail...and yet somehow because it's personal fitness, it's all ok??

C'mon folks, you have less tolerance for gimicks and false claims for your Charger, why the hell are you giving it a pass on your body??

Just because it has some kernel of utility (hell, any excercise has utility), you're giving it a pass...and at the cost they charge for that nonsense??

I'm seriously disappointed.

Flex seems to be the only one so far who sees right through it.

I like P90X because one, I hate a lot of the gyms around me, mostly filled with people that take up space and don't know the proper etiquette of being at the gym (putting weights away, not just sitting on machines or trying to pull weights off the benchpress...while I'm using it) Also, not a fan of having to pay a monthly fee. So instead I paid a single price once and now I have the P90X, it's cheaper than a year's membership at a gym so I don't know how it's outrageously priced Ddaddy (Newegg had it for about $70). Even with the equipment it's cheaper than a gym membership.

It's not ideal for building bulk, I get that, but my fitness has lowered from my prime to where I just need be fit. This does that for me. I like the mix of different exercises that don't make it feel drawn out and boring. Could I go running? Yeah sure if I wanted to get hit by a car, people around my area aren't exactly the brightest bunch in VA. I just want to stay active and this does just that for me. It's easier than going to a gym, I don't have to ride out anywhere, I walk 100 feet and I'm in my own personal gym (my garage)

So for FLEX, I wouldn't expect him to like P90X, it's not for what he's trying to do, he wants to get stronger and bigger. Me, I just want to be healthy, I don't care about getting big anymore, and this will get you stronger to a point, but you'll eventually plateau, which is fine for me. Like I said I just want to be healthy and keep active.

Here's an example, since I have tendinitis in my shoulders, elbows and knees (thanks genes!) I have issues doing a lot of weight lifting, even when I was in my prime. With the program I'm able to slowly work my body into what I would say is the norm that people are capable of. Hell I can't even sit indian style! So the yoga mixed with stretching is improving my flexibility. Could I do this myself without it? Sure, but it's nice to be able to follow instruction, eventually I'll probably memorize the whole damn thing and give it to someone else. Just because it isn't good for you doesn't mean it doesn't work for someone else.

Really? You didn't think the "fun run" was fun? Ha ha. Seriously though I've always enjoyed running. Doing it in formation, and calling cadence was a fun twist to an already enjoyable activity. Of course I guess you've got to like to run for it to be an already enjoyable activity. ha ha.

Yup, all these reasons are why I bought it to begin with. I bought it off craigslist for $30, because I didn't want to spend $100 (which it was at the time) for a workout video that I didn't know if I'd like. It's convenient, because you can workout at home. No need to drive to a gym, so no weather to worry about and no waiting for a machine to open up. It is certainly cheaper than a gym membership, you can't argue with that. There's a lot of cardio so if you stick with it you'll stay active and in shape. It's a great program if you're goal is to stay active, lose weight, stay flexible, and/or don't care about bulking up.
I think the biggest issue is that they promote it as a program that will make you big and ripped. Do it right, and you will get lean and stronger, but you're not going to bulk up like they claim. P90X is really no different than going out and doing the "daily dozen" every morning. You'll stay fit, and you will get stronger but mass is obtained differently. The fact that they claim this program will make you big and muscular rubs some people the wrong way.

In the bodybuilding world it rubs a LOT of people the wrong way.

On my bodybuilding site it is specifically forbidden to discuss P90X in the on topic section.

No doubt! And that I totally understand, there is no comparison. I can see it now on your forum:

"So after a year of training I hit my goal of benching 280 at eight reps!"

"I totally know what you mean! I did P90X and did it for the designated time and then watched TV! I think I did it faster this time too!"
