+1. I've already got a home gym so I'm covered there. I'm phasing my way into a pure protein shake diet. Living Fuel 3x a day and JRob Why protein 3x a day.

Honestly,

I think plyometrics and ab ripper are hands down the best, worst, most effective workout from all the DVD's.

Motha fucka had me jumping for like 20 mins straight lol

You should also try 10 minute trainer (ab workout) that's hard shit as well! Plyometrics is the hell of all workouts, damn thing is tough.

has anyone tried P90X Plus yet lol. I saw the commercial for it and it looks like a death workout sentence!

I did once. Biggest mistake ever. It's too much I think P90X is more than enough

imo...i think the cool down is just as important as the warm-up. it helps the body return to its normal state.(heart rate, temperature, etc.) i know that if i don't cool down properly i feel sick to my stomach from the acid build-up.(nauseous)

First off I just want to thank you guys for this excellent thread. For well over a year I have been meaning to start this routine. Never really found the motivation. After coming across this thread I suddenly feel like I can do this because there are a bunch of other individuals on the same boat. So awesome support thread.

Now for my question. Is everyone here on the supplements. I was hoping to go through this without taking any type of supplements and just eating properly. Can anyone provide some thoughts on this.

Week 1 Day 1 tomorrow night!!

Haha nice. Its ganna be day 1.

So my advice is to take 2 towels and 2 water bottles if not 3. DO NOT FAST FOWARD THE BEGINNING OF THE VIDEOS, YOU NEED TO STRETCH OR ELSE YOU WILL DIE IN PAIN.


And, pay attention to what the guy says. Do not do max reps first round. JUst to 8-10 reps first round. And explode the 2nd. Because you have now just entered hell.
