Getting in Shape

P90X Question

Hi Ladies- I've been thinking about getting P90X for after Christmas- the end of the program would put me right 1mo away from my wedding, and right in the midst of fittings. My question is more for apartment-dwellers. Have you had success with the program? I can't install any pull up bar if it requires screwing it into a wall, so I don't know if that takes me out of the p90X running.

    There are pull up bars that attach to the molding of a door without having to screw it into the wall.  Also I believe P90X has an alternative where you can use resistance bands in place of the pull up bar.

    I've done the system and used both the door attachment with resistance bands and the pullup bar.  I recommend the pullup bar.  Most of the pullup bars I've seen, including the one I have, do not screw in.  They attach to the top of your door.  You can check out how they attach online.  They are very simple to assemble as well.  There's a slight dark rub mark from mine on the top of the door, but it's nothing a little white paint or maybe even some washing won't get rid of.  Good luck!  It's super fun and great for building muscle.

    The only problem I have with P90X in my apartment is the jumping, etc. I do it early in the morning and don't want to wake the neighbor below me.
