I have mentioned a few times on my facebook page about a copycat P90X workout. Now, have never done the original P90X, so I can't tell you how similar it is. However, in one of the comments about the video, a viewer mentioned how the workout was just like it... So, I have decided to trust that one comment and claim that I am doing P90X copycat. :) I like that I don't have to buy the dvd.
This workout is a great one. It creates a good sweat and is challenging. The instructor is low energy, but as long as you are working your hardest, it turns out to be a great workout.
As you know, my knee is in no shape to be running and jumping. So, I dumbed down the routine in various parts to accommodate.
In the post Low Impact vs High Impact Exercises, I mentioned that low impact exercises most commonly include exercises where one foot is on the ground at all times. So instead of any jumping, I did squats and sumo squats (squat and lift on knee up high, then alternate). Doing mountain climbers, I would not jump, but I would be sure to keep one foot down at all times. For me, being overweight, it was still a great workout.
If you have any questions regarding any alterations that I may have made, then email me or post it in the comment. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
