Fan of P90X? 4 Ways to Maximize Fat Loss, Muscle Building

Even though it came out 13 years ago, P90X is still one of the most successful and popular workout programs ever created. It was so immensely successful that it spawned two additional workout programs of the same name (P90X2 and P90X3).

If you love the workouts and goofy humor of Tony Horton then we are going to show you 4 simple hacks to maximize your progress with your P90X program.

  1. Crank Up the Intensity

First and foremost, if you want to up your results, you need to start turning up the intensity. That doesn’t mean you need to launch into overdrive right away. A slow, progressive increase in the amount of intensity you dish out is great. Here are a few easy ways to do just that:

  • Doing more repetitions than Tony
  • Increasing your weight load
  • Pausing the video and performing an additional set
  • Decreasing your break time
  • Going all out during a Cardio-X or Plyometrics session
  1. Supplement Those Gains

Just like Tony himself suggests, you can support your results by using the right supplement. Here’s a simple breakdown of some supplements to consider before, during, and after your workouts:


  • Caffeine
  • Green tea extract
  • Yohimbe
  • Green coffee bean extract
  • Protein shake
  • Pre-workout drink (containing many of the above)


  • Amino acids
  • Glucose
  • Caffeine


  • Whey protein isolate
  • Glutamine
  • Creatine
  • ZMA (before bed)
  1. Train Fasted

The easiest way to train in a fasted state is to do your workout as soon as you wake up. If you can handle holding off on breakfast while you pump out an hour workout then go for it. The benefits have been proven time and time again. You’ll activate a higher level of fat burning in your body while promoting the release of muscle supporting growth hormones.

If you really want to up your gains, try combining all the helpful points on this list. Do so as your body allows though. Don’t try to be a super hero if you know you feel like you’re going to faint when you skip breakfast.

Listen to your body and do what you can.

(Doesn’t that sound familiar? Like someone in P90X said it…)

  1. Pair it with the Sauna Suit

Hands down, the best way to see incredible results and progress is to pair up your P90X workouts with the Kutting Weight sauna suit.

Made with the amazingly durable and effective neoprene material, the Kutting Weight neoprene sauna suit has been shown in a variety of studies to boost weight loss, athletic performance, and cardiovascular health.

Several studies led by Dr. Lance Dalleck showed just how effective weight loss clothing can be in attaining fitness goals. The subjects wearing the neoprene weight loss sauna suit showed an increase in calorie burning by up to 13%. The amount of calories they continued to burn after the workout was elevated up to 22%. Most importantly, those wearing the sauna suit saw a 40% greater overall weight loss.

Want to burn fat and get in amazing shape? Try wearing the Kutting Weight weight loss clothing during your P90X workouts.
