      If you want to whip your body into shape FAST, Beach Body P90X with Tony Horton will do it! The set includes 12 DVDs averaging 60 minutes each. These DVDs are to be done in a certain order depending on your goals (buking, toning, sculpting, etc.). You work out seven days a week with P90X and Tony Horton shows no mercy. This unisex program uses "muscle confusion" to keep your muscles guessing and to stop plateaus. Tony Horton is a magnificent instructor, say our fitness gurus, but he's tough and expects you to commit to reshaping your body. Our reviewers love the program and have seen very definite results. They warn that it's not for everyone, though. You must truly commit to changing your lifestyle and to working out HARD every day. In 90 days, you'll see a new you looking back at you into the mirror! Beach Body P90X not your cup of tea? We have reviews of dozens of workout DVDs and programs for you to read and compare.

      I'm genuinely impressed with the concept of the P90X workout because muscles do grow adjusted to repetitive processes, and much like cross training; very effective to utilize ever changing activities in shaping the body and improving overall health. My main question is: How difficult is it for a first time user to follow the movements on any particular workout without enough opportunities to learn it? On one hand, I can completely see that removing the chronically-consistent workout routines in favor of shifting the process and shocking the body is very effective, but how many times do you get to learn the routine before its time to change it up? Obviously I'm not suggesting that each DVD would only be used once before moving onto the next one, but I am curious as to the amount of time each routine is allotted and on what schedule if any?

      The BeachBody P90X workouts are broken down by individual DVD, and each works a different set of muscles.

      Here's how it breaks down.

      For weeks 1 - 3

      Day 1: Chest & Back plus Ab Ripper X

      Chest and back workout consists of a variety of pushups and pullups and some light barbell work ( whatever you can do 12 - 20 reps with ). The video is approximately an hour, with about five minutes of warm up ( running in place, stretching, etc ) and a cool down at the end ( more of the same ). Each excericse on the video takes between 30 second to a minute and half to complete. With a short break in between. Even though the X in P90X stands for extreme - the workouts themselves are very basic, its just the fact that you are keeping your heart rate up the entire time that makes it "extreme".  The video's even encourage you to take a longer break if necessary in between, but I think maintaining the cardio is what really helps you burn off calories while building muscle.

      Ab Ripper X is not as bad as it sounds. About 16 minutes of ab workout with a variety of situps and twists.

      Day 2: Plyometrics

      This is all cardio. By far the hardest video of the bunch, and the one I think most people don't complete the first time through. Lots of stuff like jumping jacks, hops, lunges, and so on, at a steady pace. I think the P90X book estimates you will burn off about 600 calories during the workout. I totally believe it.  It's also the only workout in the first three weeks that lasts longer than one hour.

      Day 3: Shoulders & Arms, Ab Ripper X

      Arm Curls and Chin Up variations. Save as day one, just focusing on different primary muscle group. Barbells with weight you can do 12 to 20 times. Again, nothing fancy, just a steady pace that keeps you working and keeps your cardio up.

      Day 4: Yoga X

      Never thought I would sweat during Yoga. But never realized how much it takes to balance and hold some of those positions. But by day 4 the stretching is just amazing. 

      Day 5: Legs & Back, Ab Ripper X

      All basic stuff again for the legs. Lunges, wall squats ( leaning against the wall in a chair position and holding the position till you get the 'burn'), really basic stuff. More pullups for the back and shoulders.

      Day 6: Kenpo X

      To me, the best workout of the bunch. All punches, blocks and kicks. Steady pace to keep up cardio.

      Day 7: Rest or do the X Stretch video

      At the end of the first three weeks, you change up for week 4:

      Day 1: Yoga X

      Day 2: Core Synergistics ( core workout )

      Day 3: Kenpo X

      Day 4: Stretch

      Day 5: Core Synergistics

      Day 6: Yoga X

      Day 7: Rest or X Stretch

      Weeks 5-7 it changes up again with some new workouts.

      Day 1: Chest, Shoulders & Triceps, Ab Ripper X

      ( and so on )

      According to Tony Horton, the point is to create "Extreme Muscle Confusion" so you don't just hit a plateau. It also keeps it from getting boring since you're not doing the same video every day.

      All the workouts except Plymetrics run just about 1 hour. You pick the time of day you want to do the workout, and just try to stick to the same schedule.
