* P90X is really for guys that are already in decent shape. If you have not been doing anything, but have decided you want to lose weight and get defined abs, it will be very tough.
* The main reason P90X works is because it combines a diet of optimal nutrition with intense workouts. Establishing a weekly calorie deficit is the key to burning belly fat.
* The second major point it has going for it is the continual changing of exercise focus and your workouts. Your body never gets a chance to adapt or plateau. Your fat cells are under constant assault.
* Workouts follow a protocol of periodization. They are solidly focused on increasing strength, increasing endurance, or increasing flexibility...and the needed rest for your muscles and central nervous system is built in.
* Why does P90X work? Because it forces you to make a huge positive lifestyle change. You will be engaged in consistent intense exercise, and you will be eating a much leaner diet.
* The only guys who do NOT get results are the ones that fail to follow the program. You CANNOT eat whatever you please and expect to get rid of belly fat and lose love handles. You CANNOT coast through the workouts or skip them if you expect to increase lean muscle mass.
