    1000 push ups for what ? bragging rights thats not healthy at all , ive seen what P90x has and i would say 90% is junk and most of the people will skip lots of steps.
    As i said before 90 days of working out running and diet will keep you in great shape and keep the $200 bucks for food instead of wasting on P90x.

    If you don't live healthy you don't look healthy simple.
    Great your in good shape already, then it wont take much to get to where you want to go. I have seen a number of people doing both 30 min in home(non weights) and p90x and there is a world of difference between the 2 groups after 3 months. As I stated before most people dont work themselves as hard as they work in p90x.
    Could you get by yourself what is in that system at home? Yes. But as I said most people dont.

    Who said anything about paying the 200 bucks for the tapes. They are available by other means today.

    This is actually what I dislike about body building. It is terrible for you. It de-trains you, slows down your connection between your brain and muscles. Its like watching jersey shore all day, a little bit is fine, but its what most do, and only do. Its important to train your reflexes, balance and coordination.

    maybe its just late and im rambling
    The funny thing is whenever I worked out hard, the last thing I wanted to do was eat. I shed the weight during that period in my life.

    You are spot on with your last statement above!

    Tennis and Hockey. Although I say hockey because you run out of energy the fastest and need a "change."

    I don't understand, when I do a lot of cardio my body craves WAY more food. How can you not want to eat when you work out hard?

    That is funny, because your body naturally wants to replenish the calories that are burned. Most people get hungry after a workout.

    I wanted water or a sports drink and a bite here or there(snack). The last thing I wanted to do was sit down for a full meal. Being exhausted, head burning I wanted to lay down and veg. This was after 2 mile jog sprinting straights, bleachers, jump ropes, 2 hour tennis, with 50 meter wind sprints/striders to finish up. 3 hour practice had me dragging every day. Maybe I am unusual? I will ask some friends if they want to a full meal after their marathon or tri events?

    I think there is a difference between a marathon and a workout. My body craves more food after I workout.

    A normal 30 hour 45 min workout, yes I eat normally, or maybe a little more. When I work out hard for 2 or 3 hours, where my body is shaking, head is pounding, I want water and rest. Definitely not a normal meal(lunch or dinner). I would get home from practice at 5 grab a snack or small salad(im not a salad fan), and a snack a couple hours later. Wake up with a full breakfast and be ready to start again!

    I need to get back to those days....

    You know I've tried the p90x, but the diet is my main problem. I need to stick to one....LOL

    I usually eat somewhat OK - mainly stick to subway 6inch chicken breast w/ wheat bread during the week in the day time, but the evenings are a bit in limbo for me, and the weekends are well...the weekends...

    I'll see if I can stick to one or the other with the diet.

    Swimming should be a part of everyones routine! Biking is very good too.

    A major gym should have a pool, the ymca has one, local community colleges all have pools. There is access if you search.

    I like to swim in crude oil.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Major Gyms have pools that old Asian man pee in to, i am not swimming in that filth!

    Main point of staying in shape is to be physically active, walking to the store and not driving the car 3 blocks down, going for a swim, parking your car at the end of the parking and walk to the store, play a few sports on regular basis.
    Watch what you eat is also fairly easy if you tell your self no more soda but water, no more fast food but a nicely steamed chicken with steamed rice and broccoli.
    My current work out partner is 300LBS with about 40% body fat we will see in few months how he looks.

    Urine is comprised of over 90% water content. With the amount of water in a swimming pool and even the chlorine, I can assure you, the urea will be so diluted that it would not even be detected in a water analysis test.

    The urea content in urine is so small that you can filter it out and drink the remaining water merely by using a lighter and 3 tin cans.

    Swimming just works out your whole body and is great for your body. Alongside Weightlifting, swimming can get you really toned really fast too!

    For my highschool varsity swim team, for dryland we do weights and then p90x stuff, and then swim 3 hours in the afternoon lol

    I need to get back into this. Got a month before miami. Stupid room is too small to work out in >_<

    Maybe I can do it at my friends house.

    I usually dont drink soda..ever. Just not a fan of it. Rather drink Vitamin Water or just straight water. I cut out a lot of the fast food, since we eat so much of it at the shop my gut was starting to grow, and I am very active around the shop (sweating a lot of it out in the summer time). Back on the Protein shakes for the day and light meals, I was doing that last year when I first started Insanity (then work got so busy I had no time to finish it) and I dropped 15lbs by the end of the first month.,...just in eating alone! Drinking the Creatine shakes before bedtime helped a bunch too, as I am always starving when I wake up and I overeat like crazy for breakfast...now Im just kinda 'eh' when I wake up, and I eat light cuse you still feel full.
