Re: P90x

There's also another program after the Power 90 called the Power 90 Master Series. I might actually try that after I wrap up the Power 90.

Insanity looks, well, insane.

overall i'm really happy with the workout it's the right amount of time and it's not as crazy as some of the stuff you do in the "x"

i might have to get a shake of some kind when i got to gnc tomorrow i feel like i'm burning way more calories than i'm taking in, i wish i could follow the nutritionplan, but i just try to stay low fat, i really need to just cut out the alcohol for a week or two.....doubtful
GNC is a place to go to spend three times more than you need to. They mark everything up horribly, probably because of their policy where they take returns of opened, nearly empty products if you claim they didn't work after using it all.

Yeah when i was buying everything i needed for p90x i went to a lot of body building type forums and everyone rips on GNC. I went to Costco and bought tons of high protien food, engery bars, and shakes. I also bought some cretine and "Jac3d" which is susposed to give me engery online.

Someone gave me a Magic Bullet the other day and i got EAS Protien Shake stuff from Costco which is susposed to be pretty good. Ive been told to hold off on starting p90x because i got a lot of broken bones in my face, but i think im gonna try my first lesson this weekend and see how it goes. Maybe just do the stretching stuff a few times to start off.

I have one of these (and a blender) for protein shakes. Works great:




I'm holding off on P90X from a busted arm and ensuing surgery with plate and screws, but I have been working with some thicker resistance bands and getting things back in shape. Hopefully later in the year I can try the program.

GNC has great products, but they are so overpriced it's almost comical. Good play going to Costco. Also, Vitamin Shoppe is a good place. They have the same selection as GNC and are definitely cheaper.

This is another good place for supplements, but the name makes you feel like you're buying some serious roids, lol:

Re: P90x

I've seen some changes, nothing earth shattering but I definitely feel a lot better. Went to the Dr. for a physical recently and my blood pressure and cholesterol were both personal lows. Time to kick it up to the 3-4 level next week.

I know green tea is crazy good for you, and I've been drinking it pretty frequently since I gave up soda and energy drinks almost 5 months ago. The actual tea from tea bags is no problem for me, and I've never had any sensitivity to caffeine nor have I ever had any heart related issues either (my last cholesterol test was 165 and BP is normal).

I bought green tea pills a few years ago, and within a day or two of starting them, at times it would feel like my heart was beating so hard (not fast, but hard), I almost took myself to the hospital. I mean, each beat felt like a really hard "thump" in my chest. It was scary. The only thing different in my diet/routine after the issue started was the pills. So I stopped taking them, and shortly after the symptoms subsided.

Anyway, few months back I tried the pills again just because the benefits of green tea are so well documented and I figured my first experience may have been a fluke. Sure enough, the exact same symptoms arose. Obviously I immediately stopped taking them, and yet again the symptoms stopped. Strange, especially considering I can drink the tea daily with no issue. Huh.

Re: P90x

Those green tea pills can have a lot of caffeine in them so you have to watch out. They have lower caffeine versions that are much better.

That's odd since actual green tea that you drink is usually caffeine free.
