Default Infomercial Product Reviews

I am always curious about how some of the infomercial products work. It would be interesting to hear some feedback.

If you have purchased something from an infomercial, lets hear about it!

I had heard that is a pretty effective routine. It is not easy is it?

Default P90x

I have been doing P90X for a few weeks now. It seems to be effective and it doesn't require a lot of equipment other than bands/freeweights and a pull-up bar. I use weights from 5 to 25 lbs but could use some heavier weight for some of the back exercises.

it's not easy, but if it were, it probably wouldn't work so well.

I use the Perfect Pushup in my circuit training and it is one of the most brutal exercises I have ever done. It feels like someone is screwing 6" screws into my chest. The pain is worth the results however.

I was getting too many overuse injuries with weights so I turned to Insanity only for 60 days with no weights(there may be some). So far it's intense, gets you sweating and burns calories with crazy exercises and pilates/yoga stretching. The only problem is you can easily walk away from the tv to the refrigerator. You have to push yourself, eat your meals(5 per day at 3-400 calories each) which prevents snacking. I like it so far and I am just about finished week 2.
