    Haven't tried it but it looks awful. It's basically P90X - but with added MMA Athletes who've been paid handsomely to pretend that they train like that.

    The infomercial states how you don't need a Pullup bar to do the workout. Like that's supposed to be a selling point. The Pullup may be the best upper body exercise there is

    General rule of thumb: If Tapout sells it, don't buy it.

    No way brah. Bicep curls in the squat rack are the best upper body exercise there is!

    No way. The concentration curl works every muscle in your upper body. And it is the perfect exercise for training to bring a big mug of beer to your mouth (sarcasm)

    I have Tapout. It's nothing like P90X, actually. It's definitely not a strength based workout. There is a lot of boxing/kicking drills and some body weight exercises, and some band work that is okay, but not enough to really work you if you are looking to gain muscle.

    I enjoy the workouts as I enjoy the drills and all of the plank work and push ups, but I will say that Mike Karpenko is hands down, the MOST annoying instructor I have ever seen. He makes Tony Horton look calm and reasonable. I know a lot of people who have gotten this series only to return it because while they like the workouts, they cannot stand Mike. I simply mute him. I have a high tolerance for nutty instructors, but Mike pushes my buttons.
