    I am thinking of starting P90x but I was trying to get an idea of what real female results from it look like. Any girls on F&N or guys with SO's that have done it have any result pics of advice? thanks :wiggle:

    Yeah I am sure it would be beneficial, and I am not the kind of girl that thinks workin out hard will make me look like a man, but I just havent seen any real pictures or stories of female results...everyone I know that has used it is a man. :hs:

    P90X should work well for you if you follow it correctly. Diet is the most important part, though.

    I highly recommend Lift Like a Man, Body Like A Goddess.

    It breaks down a simple lifting and eating routine aimed at women

    Its a book...

    The P90X is a routine to get someone active that really hasn't been active at all, IMO. It will get your heart rate up and burn some fat if you follow it correctly and push yourself.

    The issue is that most people will not push themselves at home to the right extent and most people won't eat right if they aren't motivated from within.

    Diet makes 90% of gains. If you are eating like shit, your gains will be shit.

    Yeah I understand that. I have no problem pushing myself...especially when I'm home alone. I just wanted to make sure that this program wasnt really designed for men and women just use it.

    OP, there are women from the original P90X class that are with him doing the exercises. They are (supposedly) graduates and are there. They look good. It's a cardio/light weights program....what DO you expect?

    what a lot of girls dont understand is that a womans body is not going to respond like a mans to the same training due to hormonal differences. your not going to get ripped doing p90x

    It'll work well for you. The diet guide and meal plan is what's going to make the most changes for you the quickest. You might tone out a little towards the end of the program but your main goal (I would assume) is general fat loss and not muscle gain. In this respect it will help you a lot so long as you stick with the nutrition guide and don't cheat.

    if you want to lose weight, diet is very important

    and by very important, i mean the deciding factor

    you can lose weight by diet without training, but you cant lose weight by training without diet.

    this particular statement is what I took issue with. Homrmonal differences aside, individual effort is what will determine the outcome of any given program. Claim genetics, /self
