People are coming up to me all the time and asking what to do after P90X. Some even decide that one round is enough. I find it kind of funny that some people think they can complete 90 days of an intense workout and diet program like P90X and then want to go back to their old lifestyle. It doesn’t work that way people! You might have gotten into great shape, but I can guarantee you that you will return to your pre-P90X form if you don’t continue a healthy lifestyle. You all must understand that P90X is not just a 90 day program, but a complete lifestyle change! Don’t you want to be healthy for the rest of your life? So what should you do after P90X? There are a number of options.
When I finished my first round of P90X, I decided to shift goals from losing weight and body fat to gaining some mass. I wanted to change things up a little too, so I decided to purchase P90X Plus and mix it together with the P90X Classic program. What I did was use the cardio workouts from the Plus and mix it in with the resistance workouts from the Classic, along with some major adjustments to my diet and supplements. The P90X Plus cardio workouts are HIIT, which helps you burn more calories and fat rather than muscle. After about 5 months of doing this, I ended up gaining about 15lbs.
However, some people still want to lose more weight/body fat, and in this case I recommend a program like Insanity. From different Insanity Reviews, it is a very high intensity program that uses Max Interval Training to help you burn a ton of calories and lose fat fast. It’s much more intense than P90X, and also doesn’t require all the equipment the X does either. You only use your own body weight for the resistance workouts, which is beneficial if you don’t have all the equipment or travel a lot. This program is so intense that I’ve heard of people burning up to 1,000 calories per workout! This is one program that you could do after you complete P90X if you’re looking to lose more weight and body fat.
Another option is a program that I have been doing recently, and that’s Tony Horton’s One on One workouts. It is a workout that Tony does each month from his own house, and it’s almost like you’re working “one on one” with Tony! One workout is delivered to your door each month, and each workout focuses on a different routine. My favorite is one called Cardio Intervals, which is by far the toughest cardio that I do. There isn’t one time that my shirt isn’t completely drenched afterwards!
So, what to do after P90X? Whatever you decide, it’s very important that you continue working out and living a healthy lifestyle. You can either do another round of P90X or purchase other programs like Insanity and One on One. Just don’t allow yourself to fall back into your unhealthy ways!
