Yeah Road, I've added a couple of the routines to my regular lifting (cut back on the reps and upped the weight). Mainly just to get some variety and hit the muscles from different angles. Besides the ab ripper I've kept the push-up/pull-up routine as well. The program will definitely strengthen your core too...

Oh, did you order it directly from the company or did you pick it up off ebay or something? I have read alot about their poor customer service and people having problems with shipping and all sorts of crap. Did you order a pull up bar, make one or go without one? Just curious. I am thinking about making one since we have a drop ceiling in the basement. I already have a lat tower down there with all my equipment but prefer to do chins first and then burn out on pull downs.

H2G, yeah direct from BeachBody. No problems with shipping or anything. Their supplements are overhyped and overpriced so I didn't bother with them. Bought an Iron Gym pull-up bar, works well in the door frame (still using it and it's held up well even though it looked cheap.) Would have used my old soloflex for pull-ups but the dvd player is in the house and my serious weights are in the garage, so it worked out okay. Sounds like you have a decent plan though, I went through the same thing.. got all cut but lost mass so this time I'll bulk first (clean tho) and then run the program again to cut. I'd like to get to around 9 - 10% BF at 195. Figure I can get there by next spring as well.

i went through beachbody as well, skip the supplements. all you need is the basics. dvd's and your own time. i mix my own workouts in as well when i get bored looking at tony lol, but p90x is the real deal.
