I have been doing P90X for about 6 months now and have been very happy with the purchase. It has been the best investment I have made for my health. I still have a gym membership and the only reason I have it is because I occasionally like to get in the pool. I wish I could fit a pool in my house but I can’t.
I was going over my own P90X review to see what kind of results I have come up with since I first started. The one thing that got me nervous when I first started was doing pull ups and chin ups. After reviewing my P90X results booklet I saw that I could only do 1 chin up when I first started. It was embarrasing because I was working out with a friend who was training to go into the Marines. He had been working on his pull ups and chin ups for about a month before I started doing P90X.
I then went to look at what my current results are and saw that I can now do 13 chin ups at one time. What was also amazing to see was that it took me a month to do 1 wide front pull up. The other day I did 10. Even more surprising was looking at the results of the P90X Legs and Back routine. This is the workout where you do a combination of 4 pull ups and a lot of leg routines. My first time doing this I could do only 4 total chin ups/pull ups. The types of pull ups/chin ups are reverse grip chin up, wide front pull ups, close grip chin ups, and switch grip pull ups. Basically I did 1 for each type at first. I reviewed my accomplishments now and did 36 total and that was just the first time. You do this twice in that workout. So thats about 70 total pull ups/chin ups in a one hour workout.
My P90X review would have to say that I have been very happy with P90X. I know that this routine is just suppose to be for 90 days but it really is a life style change. My overall fitness has increased dramatically and I can see it in every activity that I do.
