P90X Workouts are the Epitome of Muscle Confusion

P90X, the wildly popular extreme home fitness program from BeachBody, claims it can get you into the best shape of your life in 90 days. I’ve done it, and it can.

The secret to P90X‘s success is that it is not only designed to push you to your limits each and every workout, but the order of the workouts is strategically designed to avoid strength plateaus, so you continue to grow and improve every step of the way. This technique is called muscle confusion, and it is the single best way to get results fast.

If you’ve never heard of Tony Horton‘s P90X, you must be living under a rock, but just in case, P90X is a 3 phase, 90 day fitness program comprised of 12 workout DVDs. What sets P90X apart is it makes no promises of being easy, but nothing that is worth it ever is, right?


Tony Horton’s Fitness Background

Tony Horton is an exercise instructor, fitness guru, and creator of the P90X fitness program. For Tony, boredom is the number one enemy in everyone’s quest for a healthier body. So, he created the P90X program.

More than 3 million dedicated followers have made the P90X program one of the most popular home workout DVDs available today. It combines 12 different workouts to transform your body from regular to ripped in as little as 90 days. It also has a diet and eating plan that will satisfy your energy needs through tasty and healthy meals. Watch this video of Tony and the P90X program.

Tony was born in Rhode Island on July 2, 1958, and graduated from the University of Rhode Island. In 1980, he moved to the other side of the country in hopes of pursuing an acting career in Los Angeles. Once he got settled in LA, Tony joined the World Gym in Venice, California. He did not want to bulk up and end up looking like a non-flexible bodybuilder, so he focused on exercises that would make him faster, more flexible, and more balanced, all things that the P90X focuses on today.

“Do Your Best and Forget the Rest” Easier Said than Done

You will never know all that you can achieve without making an attempt. If you continue to do your best over a period of time, your best should improve. This is also a helpful mantra for those who get caught up in perfectionism and competition. It is a reminder to stay focused on the task at hand, which will lead you to your goal, and ignore all the other variables and distractions. (more…)
