It does no harm to mix cardio in with strength training and won't impede muscle gains. If anything, it will help burn off fat to make the muscle look better and help with stamina that can be useful when lifting.

Sure if you go all-cardio or all-lifting, the results WILL be different and I guess that's where the myth originates. Mixing the two together won't take anything away from your strength training results other than maybe the time you spent on cardio.

Heck, the Skins are doing Pilates this offseason!
My wife had a laugh about that, but it will only benefit them in the long run.
Pilates, like yoga, is also great for flexibility. So in addition to building your core, it can be a preventive measure for injuries as well.

I havent done a thing since getting back. I keep telling myself im going to do it today then someone wants to hang out...... Plus im trying to learn golf, kickball is in full swing, and Perry has a pretty sweet pool.

I would not suggest starting p90x in the summer time, theres just to much to do.

I finished the P90, now I'm on day 18 of the P90 Master Series. Figure I'll be starting the X in September.

Re: P90x

Good job sticking with it. Most people don't.

I have not started it yet. Will once I get over these stupid, nagging injuries.



(not homo) Have any before/after pictures? Blur your face if you want.

What's the difference between Power 90, Masters 90, and P90X?

Another question- to do the P90X in your home, what kind of equipment do you need to buy?

I wouldn't mind giving myself a new challenge with workouts, but I love my current routine(s), and it works great for me. But I'm always up for something new.

I think Power 90 would not be much of a challenge for you. They are all degrees of difficult, I say P90x, is your speed.

Power 90 = good for beginners for a tune up before doing the X

Power 90 Masters = intermediate, or for maintenance after the X

P90X = "extreme" home fitness training

As for equipment all you need is a few sets of dumbells, or the adjustable ones. A mat for yoga, pull-up bar for the X, and that's about it.

I've tried copying the discs so my wife could take them on the road, but for some reason they never work, not sure if it's my burner or what.
