    Well, this journey officially began on March 1st, and a small group of us have taken up the challenge. I am on my second round. Anyone is welcome to join in at any time, and we will be here giving you insight and supporting you throughout the entire process.

    UPDATE:
    Due to some issues with Gbridge and the fact that not all people have their workout equipment in front of their computer, I have decided that I will extend my "nearly free" distribution of P90X to those of you who are serious about getting into great shape. For $15, I will burn the program onto 12 seperate DVDs and ship it out to you lickety split. As far as the fitness and nutrition guides as well as calenders go, I have all of those in pdf format so you can pm me your email and everything will get out to you as soon as I get it.

    Also, for those of you who don't want to pay for it, if you want to download a program called Gbridge (free download), I have it all on my hard drive so you could essentially get everything for free (Calendars, charts, videos, everything). That is if the price was a deterrent from you getting the program in the first place. You just have to add me as a friend memario1214@gmail.com and then you can download it easy as pie. (Please realize that this process takes a few days to complete) I trimmed the fat from my previous file to the tune of about 8 gigs, so the entire thing is about 7 Gb now... There is a few .rar files I wasn't able to get rid of, so you will also need to download a program called jZip. Great utility, opens up the archived files so that they will run with Windows Media Player, or anything that will play WMV.

    WORKOUT UPDATE:
    Well, I am officially done with Phase 1. I have some pictures up in Photobucket so you can see the change which isn't much, because frankly, Phase 1 doesn't do much for a body that isn't ready to be attacked. Looking for big things in phase 2. More to come...

    I wouldn't mind grabbing a copy of the ab ripper x, but I'm not interested in the full work out, I like the gym better.

    Hell Yeah I'm interested. Price is definitely keeping me from this plan. I already pay for TaeKwonDo lessons so hate paying for more. Would really like this plan as I want to see the results compared to what I've been doing. Alas gbridge is not available for Mac.

    nothing much.

    couple of dumbbells
    chin up bar (get one of those multi grip ones that fit in doorways as they are freaking awesome!)
    a mat would be a good idea (not necessay but you spend alot of time on the ground)
    some stretch bands (not necessary)

    I just downloaded the ab ripper x last night, I forgot how hard that thing is, but it will probably get me a nice defined 6pack pretty quick.

    Colton, I give you tons of respect for making it through once much less starting again. I have the program and have tried to make it through but only made it a few weeks both times. I just have all of the excuses in the world to not do it....HAHA! About 3 years ago I lost 70 pounds but never got in good shape. I was a big dude!!! So to answer your question yeah I'll start with you. When are we starting? Do you take any supplements that really help you out? Which way do you follow the eating guide, or do you?

    Thanks, Kris

    Find something that is a file sharing program compatible for both, and I will be more than happy to get it to you. If not, I will figure something out. I am always up to helping out my fellow man.

    My plan is to start out again here in about a week and a half. I am going on a long ice fishing trip here leaving tomorrow night and I won't be back until Sunday. I will more than likely start up midweek next week then.

    As far as eating goes, I am no expert, but I know what really does work for me. I am one of those skinny guys trying to load up, so as far as our eating regiments go, I think we may be on opposite playing fields. I eat... ALL DAY LONG (And still fight to gain weight). For those trying to slim down, eating small meals throughout the day really does help, even if it is just a banana or something like that. I would follow the eating guide if you can, as I am sure it really does work. I have always been told that having a great physique is 40% gym, 60% eating habits.

    Supplements...
    Mulitvitamin is key, especially for just staying healthy. I find that if I do a heavy workout like p90x, unsupplemented, it wears my body down bad and I tend to get sick sometime around weeks 3-5. Which leads me to tell you that I supplement with Vitamin C as well.

    Kris, I am not sure what your goals are, as I know nobody's on here, but I can only assume it is to shave off that extra fat all while building some lean muscle, as is most of ours. I find results in taking Creatine, as it keeps the muscles nourished and keeps me from getting sore which is especially helpful in the rigorous 6x a week p90x calls for. The nice thing about it is that it is very easy to take. I buy unflavored and put it in my post workout drink (water, gatorade, etc.). Especially in that first week or so, taking creatine will be a noticeable difference, as your muscles are fully nourished at all times.

    I hope this helps you and anyone else, as I am not what I want to see in the mirror at this point either. Don't think that I am an expert by any means. I am just trying to pass on what I have learned so far. Since I will be gone, I may push this back a few extra days in order to equip the last few stragglers with the program. So let's shoot for Monday, March 1st. I will be on here tomorrow periodically into the night until we finally decide to get on the road. If anyone has any other questions feel free to PM me, and if you don't get a response right away don't be offended, I am probably gone. Those of you who would like to do this alongside me, prepare yourself for the best and worst 90 days to come.

    -Colton

    If you like the style of P90X, try crossfit. P90x has a good theory, but it's kinda drawn out and not that intense. And I HATE yoga and all that crap. Crossfit it 20x as intense as P90x, and most days doesn't take as long. I think it's a better overall fitness and strength.

    Well uh sooner... We really don't need anyone coming in here to just be a buzzkill. Some of us don't have the funds or the crossfit program in our area (like myself) and for what I am trying to do I know from experience that p90x will push me to my goals. This is a thread for those of us that are trying to better ourselves with the resources we are provided. If you were just providing input, I appreciate it. If not, all you're doing is ruining a good thing...

    You then need to add me as a friend... My gbridge email is memario1214@gmail.com . Once I accept your invitation, you can then get into my secure shares and I have the entire p90x program in one folder. You can download it piece by piece if you would like or the entire file, though I recommend the entire file. Everything in there is useful. Any questions feel free to PM me. Hope you guys are getting ready, one week from today!

    I'm starting back up again after taking time off from weight training. I think my body is more suited to 'combat conditioning' anyways. For anyone who thinks it's not intense, you're obviously not doing it right. You can make it through the workouts doing sets of 15 pushups and using 20 lb dumbbells. But if you progress to the point where you're doing 30 or 40 pushups per set and 30 to 50lb. dumbbells for the majority of the exercises it is a serious kick in the nuts. It's the only workout that has actually made me throw up. Can't wait to get started again :headbang:

    Oh and you don't have to do all the yoga crap. I just do the normal workouts, ab ripper, and sometimes plyo. My normal cardio is running which I think is better anyways. Good luck to everybody's who's starting!
