DrFaulken’s Guide to the P90 Workout Series

DrFaulken’s Guide to the P90 Workout Series

I know you want to start right off with home exercise routine P90X, but you may want to consider starting off with some of the other BeachBody workouts. Here’s my recommended order for some of their beginner programs.

P90 Basic (the second time): Day 25

P90 Basic (the second time): Day 25

The holiday always throws a monkey wrench in my workout plans, and last year was no exception. We’re back on the Tony Horton home workout wagon now, and here are my thoughts after session 25 of P90 Basic by Beachbody.com … the second time around. Tags: P90

Back to Basics

Back to Basics

I have really enjoyed the Beachbody.com at-home exercise programs. I started with the Power 90 Fat Burner Express fifteen months ago and aside from a few detours with kettlebells never looked back. I have to say, working out at home with Tony Horton and his minions has done more for my body than personal trainers, […]

The cost of weight loss

The cost of weight loss

I’ve been at the Beachbody.com workouts for a little over a year now. In that time, I’ve gone from a size 34 pant size down to a size 31. I used to wear a size XL t-shirt; now I wear a large. It was a lot of hard work, some fun, and totally gratifying — […]

Kettlebells and Great Body, session 15

Kettlebells and Great Body, session 15

It’s been a little over three weeks since I completed the excellent Power Half Hour series by Beachbody.com. I wanted to give myself a little time off from the typical Power 90 / Tony Horton-style home workouts, and was on the lookout for something a little different. I turned to a Russian kettlebell workout every […]

P90 Home Fitness Program review: 90/90 complete, week 22

I post my results of ninety Beach Body P90 basic workouts over twenty-two weeks. Yeah, I slacked off, but the results were still satisfying.

Is that a prayer squat salutation, or are you just happy to see me?

I know I just wrote about P90 a few days ago, but I am excited to have just seven sessions left. I have decided to start with a Hawaii session, then Phase 1, then Phase 2. Yeah, I’m going to gimp it along this last week, but it’s hard getting motivated when the longer Phase […]

Back in the saddle again

Back in the saddle again

Last weekend and tonight were important for one big reason: I’m getting back on schedule. I rode my motorcycles for the first time since Christmas break, and I did P90 for the first time in well over a week. Laziness has been my downfall. I could have ridden a few times during the weekends between […]

P90 Home Fitness Program: Doldrums

P90 Home Fitness Program: Doldrums

It’s been almost a month since I last wrote about P90. The holidays, a looming layoff, and just general apathy crushed almost all of my desire to get in front of the television and mimic Tony Horton. I just finished session 78, which means I grunted through twelve sessions in almost thirty days. I should […]

P90 Home Fitness Program, end of week eleven

P90 Home Fitness Program, end of week eleven

It took me a little longer than the fourteen days expected to go from session 55 because I spent one day getting holiday stuff taken care of, and the rest I just blew off. Frankly, going through the P90 Phase 3 and Phase 4 program has taken its toll on my enthusiasm. The standard workout […]
