P90X or Power 90 Extreme, is an EXTREME TRAINING SYSTEM that will transform your scrawny basement-dwelling frame from a pasty, blob-like mess into a chiseled, hot, pussy-magnet in just ninety days (that's three months, you retard). It's designed to work with the equipment you've already got laying around the house (that you already don't use), so that you don't have to buy anything beyond the DVDs. Sweet, right?
Yes, 18-year-old, you do have potential.

Here’s what you get with P90X: For the low cost of just $120 you'll receive the following DVDs (or you could always just download them for free).
01 Chest & Back You may recognize these as pull-ups and push-ups. Not surprisingly, you still can't do more than one.
03 Shoulders & Arms As frequent masturbation has taken care of these muscle groups, you can skip this disc.
04 Yoga X It's fucking yoga. There's no such thing as extreme yoga. Get over yourself.
05 Legs & Back Squat, lunge, and pull in a total-body workout like no other.
06 Kenpo X Remember Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers? That.
07 X Stretch Was originally named Yoga X part 2.
08 Core Synergistics Fancy words for MORE PULL-UPS.
09 Chest, Shoulders & Triceps Now you can really get some mileage out of your mirror. Sexy is sexy.
11 Cardio X Running in place is now Cardio X.
12 Ab Ripper X Drink an incredible six-pack and improve your driving performance.
Plus, get these informative tools:
- 3-Phase Nutrition Plan. Phase 1, stop eating like a fucking pig. Phase 2, stop eating prepackaged bullshit. Phase 3, repeat.
- P90X Fitness Guide. Since 12 DVDs didn't get it through to you, maybe an 8-page fitness guide will.
- How to Bring It Video. Get a quick video overview of the videos on the DVD.
And get these tools to keep you motivated:
- P90X Calendar. Tons of hawt guys showing off their ripped abs just for your inspiration.
- Online Support. You'll have access to Tony and other fitness experts, and peer support from your fellow P90Xers.
Aside from the 12 DVDs, the nutrition plan, the fitness guide and the video recap of the video recaps, you'll need some extra equipment. These include a pull-up bar, a fan, 10-15 lb weights (or some big-ass rubber bands for you real roughnecks), some jack-off gloves, a pair of shoes, a yoga mat, and a Chinese plastic chair from Walmart. If you couldn't tell by this point, this is one professional setup.

This guy admits they're a scam.
tl;dr It's a Ponzi scheme. Get out early and you're fine.
HOLY SHIT. PUSHUPS.
Muscle confusion? Moar liek journalistic confusion. Is this an ad or the news?
The official forums, fun to be had by all. Well, some.
Most other groups focused on health and working out see P90X as the cancer that is killing fitness and as such can be properly trolled with it. Iron Magazine (must be a bitch to ship those) has very friendly forums. Drop in and tell them how great P90X has been to you and how everyone should drop $1000 on it straight away.
