My sister and I were doing P90X for a bit with a woman from the gym (she had bought the program), but I was having to give up some of my other, what I felt was more beneficial, routines and it was very time consuming so we stopped.

So, this series you guys are talking about are just DVD's, right? I see infomercials on my tv guide all the time but have never watched the infomercial. Anybody know why it's so expensive? And exactly how much is it?

My friend spent about $120.00 on the DVDs. She's not doing the nutrition program so I don't know if that was extra or not. The infomercials are what really got me interested in the program and I've been reading and following people's progress and other than the time involved I've heard a lot of positive comments about it.

Hey, I should have read the whole thread before I posted. You scooped me with my own prior comments.


Strong chest is required for a lot of things. Dancing and ice skating lifts (for the male partner). "Handstand" type tricks in skateboarding, parkour, freestyle bmx, etc. Also surfing, yoga, gymnastics (again mostly for males). But you are right that it is most important just for functional fitness in every day life, and it would be hard to work enough through most active pursuits.

LOL, I should say I don't actually want to do it but I want ideas for things I can do in my sports conditioning class. I've been teaching it for too many years and am feeling like all I'm doing is recycling. People in the class still say I'm adding a lot of creative stuff but I'm tired of thinking.;-)
