You probably already know the basics about P90X — it's tough and if you follow it, it can get you in as good of shape as these amazing celebrities. But do you know how to get the most from the P90X workout program? Here are our top P90X tips!
3 Tips to Get the Most Out of Your P90X Workout Program
Follow the nutrition plan. When it comes to getting good results, your diet is just as important as your workouts. So be sure to eat a clean and healthy diet that focuses on fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains and healthy fats. Do that, and you'll be able to really see all those new muscles you're building in your P90X workout program!
Schedule your P90X workouts. The P90X workout program takes a serious time commitment, as most of the workouts last at least an hour. Just like you would a doctor's appointment or a big meeting, schedule your P90X workouts down in your calendar and make them a priority!
Work around your soreness. Because the P90X workouts are so intense and so challenging, you can expect to be quite sore. While the P90X workout program does give you recovery days and you usually don't work the same muscle group two days in a row, if you are really sore (especially early in the P90X workout program when all of the moves are so new), don't be afraid to work an extra day of rest into your week. You want to get strong, not injured, so give your body the time it needs to recover!
