P90X workouts provides an ideal workout regime and nutrition plan suitable for healthy weight loss.

Supreme 90 Day
Not really. Supreme 90 Day is known to be effective mainly as a total-body strength program. Except for Cardio Challenge, Tabata Inferno and the longer Back/Biceps disc, Supreme 90 Day doesn’t offer higher calorie burn exercises that affect metabolism adversely and healthy weight loss plans.

Does it help you lose weight?

After the 8-week program offered by Weider-X-factor-ST
people do seem to lose weight and shape up.

The Lean schedule program, mainly focused on weight loss, guarantees weight loss through emphasis on cardio. P90X Fitness Guide furnishes detailed explanation.

Supreme 90 Day

Yes. Supreme 90 Day claims every workout it offers accelerates the heart rate high enough to burn fat, especially the Tabata Inferno. Most workouts consist of core and aerobic activities and last 35-45 minutes.

Does it make you bigger?

Weider-X-factor-ST recommends increasing dietary intake and Classic workouts. Eating the same amount can result in appearing bigger. For more mass, eating enough is presented as the key.

Increasing food intake, proper exercising and taking proper supplements to gain weight are also important. P90x/P90x+ hybrid routine increases bulk after completing P90x. Consuming 3500 calories a day and minimum 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight is recommended.

Supreme 90 Day
No information

Does it make you stronger?

Yes, without depending upon weight machine or treadmill.

P90X isn’t designed to increase strength dramatically unless one lifts heavy weights. It makes no claims to make anyone brawny in 90 days, but increases strength by 10 or 15 lbs. Results vary from person to person including on
how strong one already is, frequency of work out and which P90X exercise (doubles vs. lean vs. classic) is performed.

No. It needs only push-up stands.

Supreme 90 Day
Weights and a stability ball are sufficient. It requires hand weights that can be of 5 pounds or 10. A big inflatable stability ball is also recommended for alterations in exercises.

Supreme 90 Day
Only hand weights (in two sizes, i.e. 5 and 10-pound) for the Supreme 90 Day are sufficient along with a stability ball.

Is it for vegans?

Being a vegan doesn’t seem to have a major impact to get desirable results.

Those who’ve been vegetarians for years seem to show no difficulty while using P90X. Increasing intake of proteins, nuts, fruit, a Balance bar and a scoop and a half of SuperPump 250 30 minutes before weight/resistance days helps. Cutting down on sugar and switching over to red wine and micro-brew beer is also recommended.

How many calories does it burn?

Weider-X-Factor-ST users report burning 330 calories onwards in a 40-minute workout. Its Optimization Zone makes each workout get progressively harder. It boosts calorie burn and fat loss in Stage 1 along with weight loss through its 30, 45 and 90-second movements.

Tony Horton’s fitness program claims that on an average each workout burns around 600 calories. However, its makers put in a word of caution saying that all calorie calculators may not display accurate readings. Certain factors determine the amount of calories an individual’s body burns, such as the amount of physical work, weight, fat percentage, age, temperature and pre-determined genetic factors.
A heart rate monitor, generally considered the most accurate way to calculate calorie burn may not be completely reliable either. If a heart rate monitor is not available, the P90X calorie calculator can be used for an estimate based on the key factors mentioned above.

Supreme 90 Day
Supreme 90 Day has been found to show results in 30 days of use as it helps burn about 350-800 calories.

Does it get rid of belly fat?

Weider-X-factor-ST does help one get rid of fat on the belly. A DVD is dedicated exclusively to obtain a flat tummy.

P90X states that belly fat is tough to fight so some time, efforts and patience are required to lose it. P90ZX also recommends taking the supplement Shakeology to boost weight loss without making any changes to exercise routine.

Supreme 90 Day
The core and ab-blasting workouts of Supreme 90 Day promise a flat tummy with regular use.

Is it a HIIT workout?

HIIT (high intensity interval training) means challenging exercise regimen that involves bursts of vigorous physical activity for a while followed by cooling off. Weider-X-factor-ST builds up the pressure gradually each week and not from day one.


Not really.

Supreme 90 Day
Most Supreme 90 day exercises are HIIT as the intensity is built up gradually.

Is it strength training?

Yes, the Stage 2 of the Weider- X-Factor: ST program offers intense 90-second sequence training and strength training movements.

P90X isn’t exactly a strength building program. It shuns gimmicks such as introducing elements like plyometrics and cardios that don’t really help acquire strength. It recommends total focus on only relevant exercises and a good diet effective for building strength.

Supreme 90 Day
Supreme 90 Day workouts are shorter as they average around 45 minutes for the strength sessions. It also seems to help one acquire great shape at home. Since a time limit (90 days) is declared, it creates a better impression on the mind that motivates one to carry on.

Is it hard to do?

Weider- X-Factor: ST may seem hard for beginners and even for some advanced level users.


P90X workouts do seem hard, but they work and one can get used to them over time.

Supreme 90 Day
Supreme 90 Day seems to show results in a week to get a ripped look.
The workouts (e.g. push ups, crunches, lunges, planks, squats, etc.) are over in 45 minutes, can be modified as per fitness level and are comfortable.

Does it flatten your abs?

Weider- X-Factor: ST offers training with its Optimization Zone from the core out to flatten abs and shape up.

P90X categorically states that simply targeting the stomach area doesn’t really work; instead, burning a significant number of calories, building lean muscle to create a caloric seems more effective. Personal genetic makeup and body type play a significant role too and overcoming them isn’t practically viable. Even the American Council on Exercise states that the best strategy for improving a specific body area is to focus on efforts to lose overall body fat and then supplement it with strength training exercises that develop the muscle tissue that lies underneath the layer of stomach fat. The P90X accordingly assigns abdominal and core workouts three days per week.

Supreme 90 Day
