CLX vs P90x?
CLX vs P90x?
12/11/12 11:18 AM
My wife and I are just starting phase 2 of P90X. I love P90X. Her maybe not as much. My impression is that maybe it is just too intense for her at this point. She has more weight to lose that I do and is much less athletic. So she seems to struggle with some of the moves and the pace.

I am wondering if the Chalean Extreme workouts might be a better choice for her than P90X? Or perhaps even one of the other Beachbody programs like Slim in 6. Does anyone who has done multiple programs have any thoughts on the best program that provides something a bit less intense to start with?

Yes! she will like Chalean Extreme better than P90X. at first i couldn't do p90x when i started it so i decided to do Chalean Extreme and i completed it. it was difficult but not as much as p90x. p90x is mainly for guys i think and chalean extreme is mainly for girls. Let her try that one and i'm sure she will complete it as well. keep it up with the p90x though, its tough but really good. good luck to ur wife as well. were all going to achieve of weight loss goal. emoticon

P90X is an advanced workout and it may not be the best program when someone starts. It also may not be the best program for her- maybe she rather workout to a different trainer. P90X was my first program and I love it, but I I have come to love Chalene and her programs. Turbofire, Chalean extreme, etc! She is very motivating and very high energy. Time flies when you workout with her. Does your wife want more cardio or likes the weights? Knowing her goal and likes will help me make recommendations. I will send you a buddy invite. Feel free to message me with specifics. That is Super awesome that you are working out together!!

Thanks for the feedback.

She actually likes the weight training days best at this point and that is one of the reasons that I thought maybe a different program would be a better fit. She has done cardio workouts in the past, but I don't think they have been at the intensity level of those in P90X. So, she struggles even with the modifications. She wants to lose about 50 lbs and that extra weight has a lot to do with her struggles. The extra weight makes it hard to do the cardio stuff especially the P90X stuff.

We are definitely going to finish P90X, but I just can't see her wanting to do it again. So, I wanted some advice on what a good next program might be so I can keep her motivated.

GET CHALEAN EXTREME! lol..
I LOVE it. I started P90x in June with about the same amount of weight to lose as your wife. I struggled with finishing it. It was too long and hard. I love Clx. It is so awesome. finishing up my fourth month and planning to continue with tf in Jan. It's very enjoyable and do-able. I'm seeing results.
