That's nutz 1.5 hrs 6 day's a week. That is some dedication. I go to the gym 30 minutes 3-5 days on a good week. The gym does get boring though.

Sounds like you are not familiar with bit torrent. First, you need a torrent client installed on your computer. I use Bitcomet, but others here might recommend you some other client. Then, search "P90X torrent" on google which should bring you to some torrent sites. I usually go directly to extratorrent.com or demonoid.com to search for torrent files.

You can get p90x for 85 shipped on eBay. And that's complete with all the guides.

Crossfit FTW!!! Fran 4:30 (PR). P90X is a pretty solid mix though...

I'm gonna do this. I have all the equipment already but missing the dumbells. I'm planning to get some adjustable dumbells. Any recommendations? I'm leaning towards the Bow Flex Selectechs.

I have the select techs. Expensive, but figured since I quit my gym membership it'll pay for itself in a couple of months. Anyway, they have been pretty legit so far, so go for it!

Also, for those that might have "lost" their p90x calendar

So what kind of equipment do you need to do this? Any suggestion as to the weight of dumbbells and resistance bands?

I'd say the weight depends on the user and what you are capable of/comfortable with.

As for the rest of your question refer to here:

I started today! Day 1 is Chest and Back + Abs. I didn't do abs because I ran out of time.

It was a pretty intense workout; I used the bands instead of the pull-up bar because the small gym in my building doesn't have a place to hang the bar. I suspect the exercise routine would of been more intense if I would of used the pull-up bar; either way, it kicked my ass. I'm definitely going to get the push-up bars; they sell them at TJMax for like $10.

Had the mushroom omelet for B-fast and just had the recovery shake. However, because of being short on time, I decided to substitute lunch and dinner with Lean Cuisines (4 for $10 at Giant). I've been eating Lean Cuisines for a while and that is how I lost my initial 20 pounds.

Ok I'm downloading the P90X workouts separately as the whole workout is too big to download at once. I've got the Abs workout which I plan to start now... I just watched it and it goes for 16 minutes but I have a feeling it will take me around 30 minutes... these guys have no breaks!!

Don't forget the workout sheets as well with the calendar I posted above (#77)

http://teambeachbody.com/get-fit/fit...workout-sheets


The excel one is pretty bomb. Does some cool tracking and calcs for you. Printed .pdf version works just as well if you aren't by a computer.
