I have heard many of you mention the P90X workout DVDs. What are they? How are you finding them? Do you need equipment at home or it is just yourself? I really need to add strength training to my cardio routine and work on my last very stubborn pounds and I am wondering if this is something I should try?

OMGoshhh P90X...WOW...It is a VERY advanced workout. My husband and I ordered this about 4-5 months ago. It is 15 DVD's that you follow and do 6 days a week for 90 days!....The videos are anywhere from 58 mins to an hour and half a day depending on which day you are on. The things that you will need are a pull up bar or bands, hand weights, for you 20lbs should be the heavist you should need, and a yoga mat. I do the vidoes but I can only do so much, which honestly is not much. I think my biggest problem with the vidoes is I need to loose much more weight to be physical able to do them. You are at a great weight and should be able to work you way into it and be able to keep up with it. You can go to BeachBody.com and take a look at the videos. You can order it for around $120.00 . It is all about Muscle confusion, not letting your muscles get use to the same ole thing day in and day out. My hubby loves it, I hide from it right now...lol but I am sure in a couple 4-5 months from now I will be more physical able to keep up with it!

Good Luck!

I agree--P90X is way too advanced for me, too. I did get Tony Horton's (same trainer) 10-minute trainer, and it's awesome. I can really see the changes in my body and feel stronger everyday. Never thought my arms could look this good. I got mine at eBay for about $75.00.

I was going to get the P90X but you need to be at goal or maintenance to do such endured fitness. Like Carrie says, it's all about muscles and the different set of exercises to do each muscle group. I am not there yet and don't really know if I want to have such a 'muscled-b0ound' boby at my age - LOL!

But I do have the others that are just as good with the strength training and you do firm and tone up nicely. I have the usual Turbo Jam (kickboxing), Tony Horton's 10-Minute trainer video set (really a good one for those quick anytime fitness), Tae Bo, Slim in Six, and a few others. It's all about your level of stamina on doing the exercises. Harder doesn't make it better, but doing the exercises right, whether easy or hard, is not the key. It's about how you are doing them - with or without weights, resistance and repititions.

Good luck - Jazzy!
