I Cant Do P90X

I cant do P90X...Yes you can!I get a lot of questions form people who say “I cant do P90X”. A lot of people see the infomercial and are automatically turned off because they think there is no way in hell that they are going to be able to do all those pull-ups and push-ups. The pull-ups are probably the biggest reason people say I cant do P90X though.

I remember when I first started P90X and I could only do one sissy pull-up where I was kicking my feet and trying to gain some magical momentum to get my chin up over the bar. It was pretty depressing. I can remember only being able to do about 10-12 push-ups in a row. Then you have Plyo…I dont want to talk about the first time I tried Plyometrics. I think I did about 75% of it and the other 25% was spent focusing on controlling my breathing so that I didnt puke…

In this article though, I want to take you from an attitude of “I cant do P90X” to “P90X…I hate it, but I love it!”

 

Why You Think “I Cant Do P90X”

The truth is that anyone can do P90X. Anyone can pop in the dvd and press play, but its more about what you do with that 1 hour that counts. The reason most people think they cant do P90X is because they see the infomercial where Tony and friends are busting out 20 different kinds of pull-ups without any effort. How on earth could I expect to complete a program like that when I can barely to a single pull-up myself?

What most people dont realize is that you can modify…

I have talked about this at length in other posts, but I want to talk to those who are on the fence about giving P90X a shot. You are going to have to come to terms with the fact that you will not be able to keep up with the folks in the videos. Thats just the truth. They have been doing P90X a lot longer than you and have the results and abilities to show for it. But dont let that get you down. You can get just as good of a workout by modifying each move to suite your current ability.

When I started P90X, I said to myself “I cant do P90X, but I cant stay where I’m at either…” That needs to be your attitude as well. I have developed some resources that will show you how you can go from where you are now with your current fitness level, and modify the moves in order to get where you want to be!

 

The “I Cant Do P90X” Excuse

i cant do P90X excuseI have heard it all and you cant fool me. I have been where you are so I know that you can do P90X. I was 60lbs overweight and in the worst shape of my life, but I took back control and was determined to make a change. Sure I looked like a fool at times during my workouts…like a fish out of water, but i pushed on anyway because I had to change!

Your insecurity about not being able to do all the moves, or be able to keep up with the video are just excuses…I know you can do it, so just do it! Press pause if you need to. You cant live in fear of not succeeding and unless you take matters into your own hands, take a risk (if you can call getting healthy a risk…) and just start pushing play. So long as you do your best and forget the rest, then eventually you are going to reach your goal and be in the best shape you have ever been in.

But step one is changing the “I cant do P90X” attitude. Get that taken care of now and take it from someone who has lost 60lbs and looked like an idiot on day-1 of P90X – you’re health is worth it!

 

300lbs Plus And I Cant Do P90X

I still dont buy it…

I have plenty of people on our RIPPEDCLUB team who started out their journey at over 300lbs and are having plenty of success with P90X. There really is no excuse unless you are in a coma or paralyzed from the neck down. I know guys in wheelchairs who do P90X. I know people with MS who do P90X. I know people who have never thought that they would ever be able to do a pull-up in their life – finally emailing me and telling me that they did their very first pull-up.

You just have to want it bad enough. Lose the excuses, get in the game, and take charge of your health.

Never again say “I cant do P90X” because you wont get any sympathy from me…Because I know you CAN do it!

Hey coach Todd, I just requested the switch to you as my coach.I was wondering if you had a RippedClub group on Teambeachbody. Okay, I am going to be 50 this year in September. I have bad ankles which eventually will need surgery. My BF is over 30%. I tried P90X a couple of years ago, but the plyo and impact exercises really put me in a lot of pain. I want to do Body Beast but everyone I have talked to says that I need to get my BF to under 20%. What do you think would be the best road for me to take? Can I really do P90X?
