All right, gentlemen—how often have you been in this situation? It's Thursday afternoon and you got off work a little early. It's been a stressful week and you could use a good sweat. You try to get a few friends together for some hoops, but no luck, so you pop in a P90X® workout.
Bruno Mars mentioned P90X in his song, The Lazy Song. The official video is below. It's pretty funny and the song is clean except for that one line:
"Tomorrow I'll wake up, do some P90X. Find a really nice girl, have some really nice sex. And she's gonna scream out. This is great."
It's neat to see P90X being mentioned in more and more places.
I’ll be starting P90X using the Slow Carb Diet. Previously, I have used my P90X Low Carb Diet with great success. The Slow-carb diet consists of foods that have a low-glycemic index, such as Shakeology. The glycemic index (GI) factor is a ranking of foods based on their overall effect on blood sugar levels.
"What do I need for equipment? "
I get this question a lot and it depends on your Beachbody program. P90x requires the most equipment out of the Beachbody programs (weights, pull-up bar, push-up stands, yoga blocks, etc). The list below has the majority of equipment you'll need for about any Beachbody program.
This is a repost from the P90x #053 newsletter and has some great information on how P90x works and why it works.

With the popularity of P90X, the term Muscle Confusion™ is getting a lot of play in the media. And while many people credit it as the reason P90X is effective, not many people understand what it means, much less how it works. Today, we'll briefly examine what Muscle Confusion is and why it's so effective.
