Weightlifting & Exercise/p90x

Question
What do you think of programmes such as p90x?

Answer
In exercise, there is two kinds of people.
Rabbits
Turtles

Rabbits love high intensity exercises.
Turtles love low-impact exercises.

P90x is a high intensity exercise. If you are into high-intensity exercises, such a long distance running, P90x would be very good for you.

If after a while of doing P90x, you are completely WIPED OUT, you should consider something else. Too intense for you.

Hope this helps. Thanks for the question.

Expertise

Ask this! - Why do all the self-help books, the exercise books, the weightlifting books, and the weight-lifting magazines - are written by (mostly) guys who are in fantastic (photo enhanced) physical shape who are in their 20's and 30's in age, telling all of us how "we" can look like them, if ONLY we forget we have jobs, families, many physical limitations, daily life responsibilities, and especially NO TIME to go to the gym every day, only by the time they reach age 40-50, or older, we never see, or hear from them - ever again?

Experience

OK, now I am 62-YEARS-OLD. Retired at age 60! I have been lifting weights for 28 years. I have learned 'first-hand' which exercises work, which do not. Exercises that you do NOT need to attend a gym to achieve, exercises that you will use very minimal equipment, and exercises for people with limitations such as sickness, age, and/or injuries. I can especially tell you which exercise machine you see in magazines or on tv; REALLY work. I have tried most everything myself.

Organizations
None. I do not have the time to belong to organizations.

Publications
I answer questions on Yahoo questions. Search 'The Terminator Fan.'

Education/Credentials
I have a business degree. For exercise, taught me to keep good diaries on what exercises I am doing.

Awards and Honors
They do not give awards for giving free advice. Wish they did, though.

Past/Present Clients
None. All volunteer work on AllExperts.
