What is better way to workout than waking up for 2 gorgeous women teaching you move after move. Sometime in future, if I can I will attend their boot camp.
My friend Muni Shankar told me ages ago about P90x. I was always too adamant. I did couple of DVD workouts and never liked them much. They were boring. One day I finally decided to check out P90x testimonials and site (Beachbody). I came across a FREE coach Heather Cates (@bbcoachheather). I was lucky that she knew all the workouts and guided me to pick up Power 90 as P90x was way above my level. Just to get some form, I picked up Power 90 and when I was confident enough, I switched to P90x. I did Power 90 to get into regular gym shape. After 40 days I was so bored of the workouts because I knew routines without even popping the DVD in. I wanted something more challenging and hence shifted to P90x.
P90x (Duration: 90 Days)
When I started P90x, I had too many doubts about nutrition and it was beyond one person to answer my queries. I really annoyed hell out of my coach. I slowly started finding all the people who do P90x or know anything remotely about nutrition and Beachbody products.
Insanity (Duration: 60 Days)
I thought Insanity was same level as P90x but without any equipment. I was partially right. Initially Insanity workouts were same intensity as P90x cardio workouts but less fun But I kept at it because it didn’t require any equipment. However I didn’t form much muscle definition but I toned down like crazy.
I used Hip Hop abs as recovery workout after I finished Insanity and boy – it felt like insult. I didn’t even feel like I was working out. I would finish whole DVD without shedding much sweat. However workouts are fun and I would suggest people to do hybrid version of Hip Hop abs with Power 90. This workout is for people who hate workouts and would prefer something fun.
Asylum (Duration: 30 days)
P.S: P90x gave me the strength, Insanity gave me stamina, and Asylum gave me explosiveness and the direction.
It really helps that Maya is really hot and her voice is very melodious. You want to keep your eyes glued to her. I am still wishing to master all my chakras.
