    I'm hybrid-ing it with my rock climbing, skipping most of the cardio, and focusing on lifting heavy. I also use that pause button like it's my job since the program is not conducive to building muscle since your heart rate is so consistently high - even in the resistance workouts. I like to let my HR settle before doing the next move.

    Gotta say though I think X3 yoga is pretty weak.

    I am 56 days in and feel the same. No weight loss and no cms lost. Also up a bit. I love the workouts, but find I have to constantly give myself pep talks because I'm not losing any weight. I too will stick it out for the full 90 days though.

    I am also not experiencing the result I was expecting. No weight and no inches lost, no visual change.

    I started with a lot of baby fat to lose , but I am very strong. I gained almost 4 lb in the first 3 weeks when i was following the nutrition plan recommendation. I cut back a couple of hundred calories on the 4th week and finally the gain stopped. I went to an RMR testing at the end of the block 1 and the registered dietitian couldn't believe that I was eating that much on a program which supposed to help me lose weight. I cut back on calories even more and I finally back to my original weight by the 7th week. Not exactly the result I was looking for. Fat loss is simply creating calorie deficit. This program may burn 300 cal on average ( cardio days more, stretch days way less) , and if you use his to calculate your calorie intake you can create a deficit and lose fat. Unfortunately the nutrition plan calorie intake do NOT create a deficit, at leas in my case. Alternatively, you can add more cardio to your life and again creating deficit that way.

    There is a lot of positive changes though. I have more stamina, I became more flexible, have better balance, more agile, generally increase in overall finess level etc..
    Generaly I would say this a great maintanance program that keeps you fit, and improving overall fitness, getting back to the game etc. However it doesn't deliver dramatic result like the original P90x.

    I am half way and trying to decide what to do. Part of me want to keep going, just so I can say I finished it . Since week 3 I am having this debate , and I keep peptalking myself and saying it will change and the magic will happen etc. But week after week, it is not happening. If I finish it with this kind of mediocre non-result I am seeing so far , I will be even more disappointed wasting 13 weeks instead of switching over something more hardcore early on.

    The best results I ever had were with Jillian Michaels programmes. Especially 30 Day Shred. I lost all my baby weight and more with her. I think I'm going to double up with some of her workouts added to P90X3.

    I am on block 2. I started with the lean phase for block 1 and received no changes at all, no inches, weight not even my 30 day pics! So for block 2 I have switched it up to classic, I sure think I will have results now! Wish I didn't lose my first 30 days though, I may carry it on after I am done to replace block 1 I missed so I still get 3 full months on classic to see final results!

    I just finished p90x3...and I'm really disgusted with my results-I gained over 2inches in my thighs and now look like a football player-

    I also gained 7 pounds. I followed the diet to a t until the end of block 2-I lowered my carb intake because I had gained 10 pounds..but lost 3 pounds since then....

    I am 5'8 and now weigh 160 pounds..I did weigh 153 and wanted to lose 8-10 pounds...

    I'm thinking of returning to p90x or doing Zumba as well maybe I'm one of the few that cannot get results by 30 minutes of exercise a day.

    I agree, the Jillian Michaels 30-day Shred got more weight off quicker in 1st 2 weeks than these 2 weeks of P90x3. I just started P90x3 so i don't have a final result yet. I think that doing the 30-day Shred has helped me prepare for P90x3 so I'm hopeful to see change in Block 2.

    Loved P90X3. Finished it in March. I've been mixing T25, P90X3 and Les Mills Combat. All 3 are good and the workouts are quick and energetic. One in a while I'll do Insanity or P90X but the 3 programs I mentioned are really doing it for me right now.
    I'll be 50 in Nov and I'm in the best shape of my life! Love it.
