    You have to diet along with the program, but as far as the physical stuff in it? It's sort-of a crossfit-type program. It's not going to be as strenuous, though. Still, it's BY FAR the best thing I've seen for sale on TV. Is it worth paying for, when so much free info is out there? Nope.

    It is currently a fad, at this writing, for boys to think they need a "six pack", although most of them don't have an ice chest to put it in.

    I bought P90X. Wanted to cut a bit of weight and get in better shape. I actually was using it as a warmup to Crossfit WODs. It will work you if you haven't been doing anything and you will cut some weight if you follow the diet even most of the time. The workouts gets boring and there are plenty of free places online to get advice on W/O and diet. It justs puts it all in one place and if you workout alone can make it a bit eaiser to get yourself going with the video thing. Most serious lifters and fitness people hate it but I'm down 20 #'s, feel great and am getting in better shape. I am always looking to progress to a more well rounded workout but it has been a great starting place for me. They do not however mention the supplements, Vitamins and recovery shake that goes along with the plan that they just happen to sell untill you open the box. You can get by with local stuff and not use their stuff and can find info on what to do about that on their site. If you know what to do diet/workout wise do it. If you need help starting out P90X may be a viable option for you but plan to outgrow it as you get more serious.

    My $.02.

    You're a special child.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    Crossfit is better if thats the sort of thing you're looking for, though I will admit P90X is the best thing I've seen for sale on TV. But that doesn't mean you should waste your money on it, there's better stuff for free on the internets.

    Eh, at least youll be spreading a message of tolerance that is sorely needed. If you honestly think this is funny, put yourself in the shoes of someone bullied by someone 3 times their size, muscular, and popular, then youd understand what i went through in high school and why im sticking up for the kid to someone like you. sure, youre bigger than me, but in the grand shceme of things, you just proved yourself to be just an arrogant schmuck who just happens to have muscles.

    Wow, after a rant like that I feel so much better.

    Poor guy? Do you know anything about this guy? Let me repeat what Detard said, you haven't been here long enough to know the history.

    It came from 8 years of horrible bullying. And since no one was defending him, I decided to step in. Now, I dont know the history b/t you two, but it doesnt mean you should insult him, or me. I most likely will be laid, and it will be more meaningful than anything you'll ever have!
