The 12 workouts specified in the DVD are intense ad diverse. These workouts help us increase: athletic function of our body, strength of our core, balance and agility.

What I Liked about the P90X DVD workouts
1. Although the workouts are hard and long but they have been designed in such a way that you never feel bored.
2. Unlike other workout plans which are either good for men or women, the workouts created by Tony in the P90X DVD are effective for both men and women alike.
3. Tony understands that good nutrition is also necessary along with the workouts for optimal results and hence provides a very effective nutrition plan that comes in 3 phases.
4. Each of 12 workouts is sure to leave you with a lot of sweat because of their high intense nature.
What I didn’t like about the P90X DVD Workouts
Though it is hard to find many negatives about the P90X DVD workouts, but the few I could find are:
1. The workouts are not designed for extremely fat or obese people. The regimes are so hard that heavy people can crumble easily.
2. There is fitness test that you need to clear in order to start implementing this fitness guide, but you get to know about this only when you end up buying it. It would be nice if extremely obese people know about this, so that they do not end up paying a huge amount of money to know that it is not effective for them.
