Get Shredded!
And check out the "pushups" at the 5 second mark.
Maybe planet x will be here before this stuff get's going full steam. God help us all.

while some things he does is ok.

He is a tool, a friend of mine was using it and there were some really dumb moves with the dumbbell for joints.
Just a multi marketing fool now this guy is.

^ ya know I was kinda afraid at first. I was afraid they had gotten a clue and I could stop preaching fundamentals, then my potential market would be overcome with million dollar gimmicks. Nope. Still the same nonsense. Like you said, marketing. You gotta give the people what they want though. The problem is that so many people(unbeknownst to them) are confused about what they want. " Muscle confusion " I guess.

I'm surprised that people still believe in those pure b.s marketing tools such as P 90x. However, people are confused, like Merkaba mentioned, about what they want, MUSCLE CONFUSION. People always hope that there is the magic way if getting their dream physics, they do no want to accept the fact that their goals require alot of dedication, consistency and hard work.

I like how people equate complexity and INSANEEEEEEXTRREEEEEMENESS to better results.

Today i did deadlifts and carried a sandbag around for half an hour. It really doesn't get much more basic, it's easy to learn, you need fuck all equipment, and it was a fantastic fullbody workout. Best of all, it's free. Just look at my journal.

I hate this P90X shit even more than Crossfit, at least the WODs are online for anybody to look at.

It's Fight Club syndrome. To the uneducated/overweight/skinnyfat this guy and Brad Pitt are the pinnacle of physical development. Obviously they are mistaken.

Now THAT is the shit that bothers me...people thiniking they are doing something so great or reinventing the wheel with this stuff because they lost some weight with it, and you develop this elitism/blood brother type of bond/complex going on. It's great from a marketing standpoint, but just like in sports or the military, fraternity, clubs,etc., once you get people together and they give "blood sweat and tears" the people that come out the other end, or half way through, or a couple of weeks, develop a damn near unbreakable bond. "If you see somebody else wearing this insanity shirt, you know they've earned it". Combine this with the fact that people sweating to just about anything for 45 minutes 4 times a week will lose weight, and you've got a damn near genius marketing system. If your weight loss tapers off, well you didn't hit it hard enough, or your diet is off, or it's your fault, not the glorified circuit training exercise dvd's fault!

I thought about the same thing. It's wonder he didn't balance a ball on his back. This would be a different color ball, and way heavier...for an optional extra 20 dollars plus shipping handling and processing

I feel that anyone who thinks their muscles have brains and can be confused is an idiot.

define "killer"...because just because something is hard doesn't mean much. I mean training for a marathon is killer, or so I've heard, and climing mountains is killer or so I've heard, two a day football practices is killer and running sprints is also killer. Jumping rope and doing pull ups and pushups non stop for 30 minutes is also killer and will get you the same results.

Is that the same crap? My brother is doing it. His wife put him up to it. I've been trying to convince him to do some crazy shit like lifting weights. He's a puss.
