I realize there are like 9,000 topics about P90x out there. I read a good 80% of them and I couldn't find an answer to my current situation.
I'm trying to recomp after an injury and have been doing a good job, but school and work have taken over a bit. So here's where I stand right now: I basically can go to the gym 3 times a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. But I can also get a regular cardio exercise 5 times a week, let it be running outside (which I can finally do since Michigan seems to be allowing me to not frostbite my ass as soon as I step outside...) or doing cardio with my punching bag that I have in the basement. So that's where I stand. I figured 3 days at the gym, 3 days of cardio at home would be the final split.
I have heard and read great things about P90x, people losing a lot of weight, getting ripped, getting toned, all of that. But I can't do the program to the fullest as I am still recouping from injuries and some of the stuff they have will just probably kill me. And the other thing too is that I only have, like I said, 5 days that I could do it at home. Wednesdays and Sundays just do not work for me at all.
So I was looking for some input. Also one thing that I think helps is that I have a Total Gym and I could combine that with most of the exercises displayed on P90x to get a little extra resistance so I can lower repetitions and try to build some muscle in there. But I wouldn't be able to follow the full plan.
I plan on doing the Ab workout regardless since it was pretty good IMO, but was looking for opinions on which route to take, or maybe some route that would combine best of both worlds? Thoughts?
Thanks in advance!
