P90X workout questions :D?
Hey. I’ve come across this workout program thats meant to get u looking ripped in 90 days. Im considering buying it but just have a few questions and queries. Thanks for helping.
1) does it really work? (obvious question)
2) Will it get rid of body fat effectively? (im over weight but not too fat, will it get rid of belly and man boobs?)
3) I’ve heard that this program might make u put weight on? Is that true? Im definately not looking to bulk up too much or gain weight. Im looking to lean down and lose body fat so that all my muscles come out and are easily visible, and so thats it looks sweet lol.
4) would u recommend i buy it? ( i do not want to gain any fat, just lean down nicely)
Please feel free to give any other relevant information that will help me
Thanks a lot guys in advance 🙂
Im 17 years old by the way.

I’ve been through the program twice this past year…Classic version and Doubles version.
1. It’s a very good program but if you think you’re going to look like the guys in the infomercial just from doing the program, you’ll be disappointed. Those people didn’t get their results from JUST P90X. However, I still recommend it as a very good strength training and total body workout program.
2. I lost 10 lbs on the program and gained strength and muscle. Depending on how well you work the program and your eating habits, will determine if you lose fat on it or not. Remember, fat loss is about more calories burned a day than are consumed.
3. Since muscle tissue has weight, yes you may gain pounds. However muscle tissue also takes up less space than fat so if you are losing fat and gaining muscle you may gain weight or see no change in the scales, but notice your clothes becoming loose. If you don’t need to lose fat on it and you just gain muscle, then you may put on weight with your muscle size…but that’s preferred tissue for most people and the more muscle you have, the faster your metabolism. If you don’t want to bulk up, do the lean version which is lighter weights and more reps on each exercise. It’s explained in the program…6-8 reps for the people wanting to get bulky muscle, 10-12 reps for the people wanting to be more lean.
4. I do recommend it and I will go through it again. I’ve been off it since over the Summer but still occasionally use one of the workouts from it in my daily program for variety. I used the Cardio X program just last week because the weather wasn’t suitable for me to go running.
Take the fit test first to see if you are ready for it (it’s not a program for beginners)…if you are ready then it’s worth your time. You do need some equipment to work the program most effectively though…resistance bands or dumbbells, resistance bands or a pullup bar, and a yoga mat is helpful but not mandatory (but you do need a nice surface to lay on for part of the yoga program and some of the stretches).
See source link for the fit test…and good luck!
Would you like to correct my English essay?
I have to write an essay about how obese Americans are suing Fast Food chains and if I agree with it or disagree.
For many years, all across America, consumers have been finding solace in reliability and availability of fast food. Big fast food chains, such as McDonald’s, Burger King, Taco Bell, and Jack In The Box, offer unbeatable prices but with those unbeatable prices comes a consequence. Many consumers would like to point the finger at the fast food industry for their poor health choices but the problem is not as simple as that. Countless circumstances can avoid this national epidemic such as exercise, better health choices, and alternative foods. Eager consumers have no problem picking up a juicy mouth-watering Big Mac or a sizzling bubbly large Dr. Pepper and devouring it without question, but when the consumers is faced with the issue of their obesity, they cry wolf and quickly search for the one to blame. Fast food chains are not to blame for obese Americans, obese Americans do not have the right to sue fast food chains for their obesity. The issue is a question of responsibility and accountability.
The main reason obesity in America is poor health choices. Countless consumers enter the fast food establishment without questioning how many calories, total fat, or sodium is in the product they order. Due to their ignorance, they are accumulating so many calories and therefore becoming more obese. If the consumers only took the time to consult with the restaurants employees about what their healthy choices are they would be more informed about the food the fast food chains serve. Instead of ordering an oozy sauced Big Mac at McDonald’s which has 540 calories, the consumer may want to try a blooming bright Fruit In Yogurt Purfait which only contains 380 calories. Jack In The Box offers a wide range of healthy food alternatives such as the Asian Chicken Salad with grilled chicken which only has 160 calories and the low fat Balsamic Dressing which only includes 20 additional calories. Burger King also offers a Veggie Burger which add up to 330 calories. Many healthy alternatives can help the consumers battle their obesity and also get on track to a more healthy lifestyle. Having better health choices will greatly improve the consumers knowledge of the food they eat and prevent them from ordering products that are greased in fat, powdered in sodium, or drenched in sugar.
Americans all across the nation are becoming increasingly more lazy, and this has a lot to do with the current obesity rate in America. If consumers are constantly consuming fast foods that are filled with fat the consumers are more likely going to have less energy and therefore will be more hesitant to performing physical activity. Americans who walk for 30 minutes a day can lose a significant amount of weight and eliminate the risk of heart disease. Consumers should get in the habit of living a more healthy lifestyle that include more fruits and vegetables in their diets and monitoring how much fast food they consume. Nuts and sea food, such as fish, salmon, and trout, help the metabolism when it comes to burning unwanted fat. Another important component that should not be overlooked is the power of water. Water can make the consumer feel more full during meals and prevent the consumer from overeating but this includes drinking a glass or two before meal times. Water curbs the metabolism and enables the consumer to digest their meals more effectively. Lastly watching how much the consumer eats is another important part of the process. Portion size is a hot topic and should be addresses more when it comes to eating habits. Consumers eat too much of a portion size, and this could lead to obesity very easily. Being more aware of how much the consumer is supposed to eat will help them tremendously in the long run.
Fast food restaurants in America serve fattening, sodium infested, and sugary foods. This does not hold fast food restaurants accountable for the millions of obese Americans in the world. There comes a time when the consumers must take responsibility for their actions instead of pointing the finger and blaming the fast food industry. The fast food industry does not force feed the consumer with these foods, It is a matter of choice, and the consumer should be more aware of the choices they make. There are so many alternatives for fattening fast food but requires the consumers to look for alternatives. Opening the consumers eyes to a whole new way of thinking may not be an easy task but can easily be feasible. Americans can exercise, order healthier food, or even replace a large soda for a bottle of water. The fast food industry is not to blame for obese Americans; The Americans that constantly eat out and gorge themselves with the most unhealthiest food choices are to blame. The consumers should know the different between right and wrong and take accountability and responsibility for the choices they make.

You don’t seem to have stuck to the subject – you talk about blame, you talk about pointing fingers, you discuss accountablity, but never once do you talk about people suing fast food chains – and that’s what you were supposed to be writing about.
