I have now done both and I think for a long term plan p90x is better… but that is if you have the time! If you don’t have the time you won’t do it right?

The 30 shred I am 17 days in now gives excellent fast results especially in the arms! It works your muscles differently to p90x – in p90x they work you in the strength training range – in the sred they train you with endurance and if you are like me who hasn’t done a lot of endurance training you will see excellent muscle adaptations quickly (i started seeing changes within a week). I was also skeptical but it is a GREAT workout and I pant just as much during the shred as I do during plyometrics – it is a lot about how you push yourself!

Good Luck!

I have done p90x for nearly two months but fell off the wagon when I got sick. That I believe is a great workout routine especially for the long run. I have to agree that Plyo was the worst for me… I LOVED Kenpo though!

Last week I started the 30 day shred. I was pleasantly surprised at how intense it really was and it worked me out. I think it is great for a quick shape up.

I would never be able to stay on the P90X for 90 days straight!  Thats just me…but it looks amazing!

I found with 30 day shred, after about a month my back/arms looked amazing and I started to see some ab definition.  I had been skeptical initally also, but I think it’s an extremely effective combination of moves. 

I haven’t tried P90X (I think it’s pretty expensive, and the shred was $8) but it has been my experience that any “routine” change can help a lot with weight loss because it jump starts you, so I would definitely give it a chance if you don’t have time for anything else.  It’s probably the most effective short term workout – it got me further than a year at the gym did, because I can’t force myself to do weight lifting.

I’ve been doing P90x for about a month, but I have to admit it’s not everyday – but I am still seeing great results.  I was not a fan of 30DS.  I was super annoyed by Jillian and barely got through a week of level one.

My body has never felt to strong in my life. I downloaded i90 Workbook from the App store on my iphone. I used to program to record my p90X workout stats and record my photos. I cant wait to see the difference in my body from my first week to my last week. I should finish just in time for the beach. Bring it!

@Mermaid – when I do the shred – I turn Jillian off – I play it on mute on my computer next to the TV and watch TV or music videos – she just doesn’t motivate me the way music can so I just use her as a guide!

I really want to do P90X…. just to get into shape. But it’s such a time commitment and I like watching TV while I’m working out.

How much does the 90X cost and what exactly does the program look like?? It sounds like it has been really effective for some people and I would love to learn more about it!
