no they don't work. and they don't have clearly defined goals. the program is a little bit of everything, hitting muscles that you know the names of multiple times with insufficient stimulus, and exercises done with absolutely no standards. compliance to something as simple as progressive load is next to impossible with the program. you could end up putting in the same effort into the program and never get a significant enough training effect.

out of a hundred people who start p90x, 99+ don't finish it. same with insanity. i really don't think it "helps more people get fit".
