Maintaining what I've gained in 90 days
So I just finished 90 days of P90X. I feel great and look good too. But I want to keep what I have gained, however I just can't keep up doing it everyday due to work and family commitments. Does anyone have any suggestions for maintaining what I've gained? Could I work out say 3-4 days a week and maintain what I have and if so, what workouts should I Do over those 3-4 days?

Thanks

Well, this really depends on your goals. I know you want to maintain what you got through P90X, but, what is a more specific goal? But to anser your question, through working out 4 days a week, you can maintain results. Although, P90X workouts are long, you can still get a quality workout in 30 minutes. I would recommend doing a the different resistance workouts at on a Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule. If you could only do another day of workouts, do cardio. The day could be of your choosing. Just try to keep a good schedule going, you may not get results as fast as you did with P90X, but they will come in time.

You can find out what Tony and Beachbody suggest for maintaining your results on page 34 of the P90X guide. In a nutshell, do Yoga at least once a week, add in some cardio (Plyo, Kempo of Core Syn) once and then do some resistance training. When doing the resistance training you can cut it down to only doing the first set of the workouts...helps reduce the time needed.

As noted, it really depends on your goals and time you can commit.

Shoot any questions...
