She isn’t perfect. She was shilling useless diet pills and
Anabolic Running got sued for it. More than a little counter-intuitive it still provides a useful lesson and not just that everyone makes colossally dumb moves sometimes. It’s the same thing as when I do pull-ups some days I can bang out ten in a row three or four times and some days I just fall in a heap on the gym floor when I try to do one. One little setback-or ten-isn’t going to change much of anything when you’ve got momentum on your side.
She admits her insecurities. She is not shy about talking about being overweight as a child and all of the things she went through (eating disorders and the like) subsequently. Being an alpha female admitting insecurities are not normally something I believe in but Jillian has convinced me that it can be empowering. Especially when you’re trying to sell your second book or start a business for that matter. She talks about her hormones. All the time. Alpha females also usually steer clear of such topics for fear of alienating our male running or training partners however after recently experiencing a full moon (and a Scorpio one at that-the most intense full moon cycle of the year) in conjunction with PMS and during that two-day span seriously running about fifty miles (howling the entire way) and lifting a million pounds of various weights I am a convert to that type of discussion too.
The P90X is actually directed more towards athletes and people that are in a good physical shape but everyone could do it without any problems. You should be able to perform the full P90X easily if you take care a bit about your body a couple of weeks prior to starting the P90X. And yes I think that any should perform the full 90 day P90X program. The world would be a healthier place and everyone would have a very large smile on their faces.
I know that the P90X sounds as a very difficult program (and if you know what the name comes from Power 90 Extreme it also sound like a difficult program) but I am sure that with a bit of confidence and determination you can really do it. Just read a couple of reviews from the internet. They are all positive with very happy people that have managed to perform the entire 90 days. They actually celebrated because it truly was a battler for their mind and for their body as well but they have come out of it victorious. You can actually be very proud after finishing the entire program.
