90X, anyone doing this?

I know it suppose to be for men but I found a p90x core synergistic video and there are girls in the video. I have been doing it for a few days now and feel really good but I don't want to bulk up. I'm already a runner but i need to add in some strengthing routines.

  • P90x is a great strength training program. As a woman, you're not likely to bulk up, unless you try to on purpose with supplements and extremely hardcore weight lifting. You just don't have enough testosterone in your body to be able to get bulky. I run (training for my 1st marathon 4/30) and use ab ripperX and YogaX as supplements though I don't use the other workouts yet because I'm focusing on distance training and don't want to be super sore for my runs which are more important. It's expensive if you buy it, but it's the real deal and you'll get results if you do it!
