I think a mix of everything is pretty important, and I'll go do some normal lifting followed by a WOD that involves circuits of calisthenics and/or weights for time. My favorite is pullups/thrusters for 20 minutes.

The important thing is that people are getting out there and exercising, and doing it safely with the proper form (I'm looking at you, stupid kipping pullups and 400m lunges).

Also, for abs, if you can find a copy of it, I highly recommend Legendary Abs or Legendary Abs 2.

Ill check that out...p90x ab ripper is pretty good.sometimes I combine the abrx with yoga belly and increase reps. Im not a huge fan of working teh abs

Me either. That's why I like Legendary Abs 2. It hardly takes any time at all (around 5 min to start and 15-20 minutes at the higher levels) and leaves abs feeling like jelly.

I'm working on trying to get back in shape after a bad mt. bike wreck that has knocked me out of the workout game for the last year and half and all of this stuff helps.

Day 5: Legs and Back
Day 6: Kenpo X

Month 2:

Day 1: Chest, Shoulders, Tris
Day 2: Plyo
Day 3: Back and Biceps
Day 4: Yoga X
Day 5: Legs and Back
Day 6: Kenpo X

Month 3

Week 1 and 3:

Day 1: Chest and Back

There's recovery weeks in there as well that I can't remember the exact order. You essentially do plyo, yoga and the core synergistics workouts that week.

There are 3 workout calendars: classic, lean, and double. I would always skip the 6th day of kenpo and do something else. After awhile, the only 3 workouts I would do is plyo, yoga, and core with ab ripper mixed in sometimes. All of the other workouts weren't really giving me a workout.

I'm in the middle of p90x and I love it. it's absolutly amazing. it works for me like lipo. my abs look amazing and i'm only half way throught.

I don't use free weights however, I bought a resistance band called the TNT from lifeline usa. it's the best product amailable by far on the market ( i broke my previous set of bands). it comes with 3, 40lb bands in it so you can do 40lbs or 80lbs or 120lbs. but you can buy replacement bands that can run it all the way up to 300lbs. also they say they can stretch 3 times the original length without breaking

I don't even go by their calenders. Usually, its Legs and Back Ab Ripper Shoulders and Arms CardioX Ab Ripper Chest and Shoulder Back and Biceps with a rest day after 6 I would switch up the cardio with Plyo when I get bored, Plyo was fun so I wanted to add it as much as possible. I feel since the Cardio X has yoga and Core workouts, it can replace both of those.

Exactly...I did p90x last summer and I liked it a lot.

Around last Thanksgiving I herniated a disc in my lower back so I haven't been to the gym or worked out (other than PT) for the last 5 months....it SUCKS.

As soon as my back is healed up I'm going to start up slowly but eventually do another round of p90x. Gotta shed this fat I've been building up. I am looking forward to it.

Its definitely not easy or for the faint of heart though. I tried starting it during the summer and gave up after one day. Now I'm starting up again and managed to more or less do a slightly reduced version for the first week.

I'm on week 3 right now and am mixing P90X with Insanity's plyo and cardio workouts. Loving the soreness.

I bought it from www.beachbody.com. It was cheaper than Amazon.

And yes, I could likely have downloaded from bittorrent, but that's not my style.
