About to start P90x

I am about to start P90x. Anyone with any experiance with it? I am 32 6'4" tall and weight about 225. I am in terrible shape though. I have back, hip, neck, and sternal pain and extreme stiffness all the time. I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I really hoping that this program helps me look better, but mostly feel better. I am only slightly over weight, but i am so terribly out of shape. Im hoping the yoga really makes a difference? Any tips, advice or personal stories that may be good for me to hear. Thanks!

Hi! I did P90X for a while and really enjoyed it. Most people I know who did it got rapid results. You just need to remember to set aside enough time and stick with it.

I was working on my first degree black belt at the time I was doing P90X so I had to let it go because I developed sore hips and knees and found too much of my day was consumed by my exercise regime.

Have you started yet? How did your first workout go?

Which works better in your schedule? While I love morning workouts, I have to be honest with myself that I don't have time in the mornings. I tend to rush and

Unfortunately i have not been able to start yet :-(. My fibro really had a flair up the past several days and i could barly get out of bed or walk due to severe stiffness and pain in my back, hips, chest and neck. Hoping for a pain free weekend, so i can give it a try on Monday.

Have you talked to your doctor about P90X with fibro? I wonder if a gentler workout might be better for you.
