P90X For Teenagers

Is P90X for teenagers? Apparently my P90X YouTube Video is spreading like wildfire among teenagers because I’m getting a TON of emails from them asking whether or not they should begin the program. I’ve seen many teenagers go through the workout program and get absolutely amazing P90X results, but there are some things that you MUST do before you make your decision.

(1) Talk to your doctor. Even though I think it’s OK for you teenagers to do P90X, you still need to talk to your doctor and see if the program is right for you or not. The majority of the time the doctors will approve, but sometimes they recommend something a little less intense, all depending on your current health condition. It’s a strenuous and super intense program, and sometimes it can just be too much. If P90X is too intense, ask them about Power 90.

(2) Talk to your parents. If you’re parents don’t approve, then it’s going to make it very tough on you, especially with the diet part. Because you are still living in their household, they might not be willing to purchase healthy food to support your healthy change. In my opinion, if parents don’t support their children with making a decision to live a healthy lifestyle, then shame on them.

(3) Decide on where to purchase it. Unfortunately, there are so many people out there making pirated copies of P90X, which hurts people like me (Beachbody Coach) and Beachbody itself. You teenagers are accustomed to the online world, and know where to get these pirated copies. However, instead, think about what you’re doing and how you can support the makers of P90X and the coaches out there by purchasing from them. Since I’m a coach, you can purchase from this site, and I’ll become your coach and be here to help you through the program.

(4) Prepare to commit! Commitment to both the workouts and diet are key if you want to get excellent results with the program. P90X works, but it only works if you follow it properly.

  1. Im a teenager im only 16 and i had started p90x in the summer for 2 weeks and i lost 10 pounds. i got lazy and i stopped, but now i read your posts a lot and im about to start again tomarrow.

  2. @Rudy. Sounds good!

  3. Yea but the onlu bad part is that i cant do any pullups will that like set me nack at all?

  4. @Rudy. No, just modify.

  5. Hey coach josh well i said i was going to start last week but ive been lazy, but not no more i started today. The bad part was i was only able to do like twenty push ups and like six to eight modified pullups is that ok?

  6. @Rudy. There’s nothing wrong with that! Modify if you have to and work your way up to the original versions.

  7. Ok thanks and i cant wait until i successfully complete the program

  8. I’m 16 years old, 6 feet, 170 pounds and have been bulking up by lifting weights for the past 3 months since my football season has ended. I saw pretty good results in the areas of increasing the amount of weight I could lift and the amount of muscle mass I gained, for example I went from maxing 185 lbs on the bench to maxing 225. The only problem is now I would like this newly acquired muscle to really show. This is why I have been considering P90x. However, I am a bit worried that P90x will make me appear ripped but also scrawny. I need to stay big, put on more muscle and hopefully stay at my current weight, while at the same time getting the definition I’m looking for. Any suggestions?

  9. Nice post! I’m 16, and done P90X for 90 days, Insanity for 60, and just hit 60 days on a hybrid of the two! You’re a beast Josh 😀

  10. @Conner. it won’t make you scrawny, just as long as you’re eating properly and using the right supplements. You’re also going to want to make sure you continue benching along with P90X.

  11. On what days would you recommend I do my own weightlifting ruitine along with p90x?

  12. @Conner. That’s up to you. Just make sure you give each muscle group 48 hours rest before working again.

  13. Hello, I’m a 14 year old runner, doing cross country and track. Right now, i’m currently doing track, running 6 days a week, and taking one day off of the week. I was wondering how I should incorporate P90x to my schedule, and what diet phase and level should i follow? I’m about 5’6” and 113 pounds, and I have a little muscle, I just want to drop my body fat percentage to reveal my six pack more, and add some mass. Thank you for your time!

  14. @Brian. You need to talk to your doctor since you’re so young.

  15. If it helps, I’m turning 15 in two months.

  16. @Brian. It really doesn’t. It’s going to be important that you follow the P90X Nutrition Guide how it’s designed. When I was going through my first round, I followed it very strictly.

    My son is 13 and wants to do P90x – he’s a goalie in soccer and will likely take 6 months off as we’re moving overseas, and he wants to take this “time off” to increase strength and flexibility, and jumping/speed if possible… is he too young? what should we look for?

    @Scott. In my opinion I think the program would be great for him, as I would have started when I was his age, but I’m not a professional either.
