Power 90 Long-Term
Power 90 Long-Term
1/2/13 8:32 AM
Hello! I'm new to Power 90 and video workouts in general. I'm currently about half way through my first 90 day cycle. I can see results already, so i'm getting more and more into it.

I really like Tony, and really like the workouts. My question is what do people use long-term? I'm just now switching to the level 3-4 discs, so I've got new routines, but even after just a month, the first 2 workouts were becoming monotonous. Same workouts every other day, and same "I'm falling over, don't know why..." "Checking on the kids..." I want to continue to workout everyday. So, after 90 days do people take a week or a couple days off and then restart a 90 day period? Do you move on to Masters? Do you go to P90X?

I'm not looking to continually increase intensity. That might sound bad, but it's more important to me to keep the workouts reasonable in length and easy to fit into my day or schedule.

I know part of the appeal of P90X is the number of different workouts and "muscle confusion" and that sounds like a good idea and a step in the right direction. I'm just a little leery about the workouts getting longer and have to do pullups (I don't even have a door frame near my TV).

So, I'd just like to hear input from other people and some idea of what most people move on to.

Thanks!

Personally, I moved over to Master Series after the 90 days on Power 90 and found that to be a nice change. The MS is much closer to P90X, but is not quite as intense (think of it as a bridge to P90X).

Now I did not move over to P90X after completing MS, but instead I've started doing some of the other specialized programs. I'm currently on Body Beast and starting Les Mills Combat this month, but none of that would've been possible without the base that Power 90 gave me.

Hope that input helps.

I've set a good order on what I want to do after finishing P90 which in turn might help you.
I'd like to do P90 in order to get fit and into shape, and then do P90M. After P90M I'll switch it up to either some Zumba (not classes, but the videos) and then move onto P90X, and if that's successful P90X+ and then P90X2. Only then would I move onto Insanity, Body Beast, or the LesMills workouts. It's good to have a set list of goals and an order to it on what you want to achieve. emoticon

Cheers.

I think that sounds like an awesome progression! That should keep things interesting and fresh which is always good.
