My results - P90X, Insanity, P90X2 and Body Beast - Tell me what you think
I started with P90X in 2010. I did P90X, Insanity, P90x2 and Body Beast, in that order. I did each program twice, except for Insanity. I really did not get good results from Insanity and clearly lost ground there, nothing against the program and I'm sure it works for others, but not so much for me.

I am 51 years old. I am 6' 4" tall. Before P90x I was about 215 lbs. After P90x2 I was around 200 lbs. Now after Body Beast, I weigh around 225. What do you think???

Pictures are in the order I did the programs:

I am a newbie, but think you did great! If you compare your beginning pic weighing 215 vs last pic weighing 225...imho, you've gained 10lbs. of muscle. You LOOK like you've lost lbs. when comparing pic 1 & pic 5. I think everyBODy responds differently to different programs...did you do double w/o w/any of the programs?
What about your diet? Any changes when doing any of these programs?

I think that you should be proud of your progress!

I start week 4 of phase 1 of p90x tomorrow & hope to have as good as results as yours!

Congrats!

Thanks much for your comments.

I never did doubles. I don't think they are really necessary. If you are applying yourself, the standard program gives you plenty. I did my best to follow the P90x diet throughout, except for doing Body Beast. The BB diet plan told me to really up the calories. I am eating about 3300 a day vs. 2600 or so during P90x.

My percent body fat numbers tell me I have gained about 25 pounds of muscle and lost about 15 pounds of fat.

Keep it up and finish P90x. Don't over think it and just keep pressing play and I think you will be very happy with the results!
