You really have nothing to lose and owe it to your body to give P90X an honest shot! If I can offer any advice when it comes to finding the program to purchase online I would strongly suggest that you only purchase from the Official P90X websitefor a few reasons.

1.) If you buy from the Official p90x nutritionwebsite you will get two FREE workouts. Tony Horton will throw in his training program called “Fountain of Youth”, which is a beginner Yoga routine. Not only that but he will also throw in “Mammoth UML”, which is the ultimate Upper-Middle-Lower workout. You only get those two bonuses for buying through the official site.

2.) It is 100% Risk Free. If you purchase through the official website they offer a full 90 day satisfaction guarantee. If for some reason you are not happy with the program, all you have to do is return it in the first 90 days for a complete refund.

Word of caution! If you happen to find this program anywhere else online for less than the $119.85 there is a huge chance that it is fake or incomplete. If you want to be safe and make sure you get the full program, spend the few extra dollars and purchase from the official p90x workout schedule. Don’t you think you owe it to your body?

There are two main P90x packages you can purchase. The first comes with the bands, and pull-up bar, as well as the very tasty recovery drinks. The second package only has the P90X videos.

i was stationed at bindon barracks in hameln from 1961 to 1963 doing my national service,i was invited to stay on for a further six months due to the berlin wall being started by the russians, there was a lot of tension diplomatically at that time,but my mother insisted i came home on my due demob date, i informed my c/o of my dilemma and he instructed me accoringly,so i stayed: It wasn't so bad though 'cos for the duration of the extra six months all us ns lads got regular soldier pay, which was quite an increase in our pockets. I was a cook attached to 408 troop Royal engineers,they built bridges and I cooked food, seemed to work out pretty well.I used to eat in the naafi, the food i made was pretty awful. what do they expect?,one day i'm a building worker, then BANG, i'm cooking food for hungry squaddys. it was all good fun though, wouldn't have missed it for the world... bye for now.

One of the many jobs I landed up with was NCO permanently i/c fatigue men in cookhouse.
Not my scene at all, but the catering officer wanted a two-striper who had more than a year to do, there weren't many NS to fill the bill. Start at 0630 hrs., finish about 1800 hrs. No days off, no social life, but no guards, no drilling for the Admin Inspection that was coming up. No soldiering, in fact. I stuck it for a month, then moaned about my lot to the BSM and got out, quick.

Lads were queuing up to jump in, all thought I was crazy. Big advantage was that when I took my plate to the counter for some nosh after the regiment had eaten, the cook Sgt. said " Don't eat that muck, lad ! Get round the back. we've got the cooks' special for our scran!" But hot summer in the cookhouse, slicing the bread, devising ways to kill wasps and kicking the arses of fatigue men was not for me.

I did that in Long Kesh for a time, 24 on - 24 off. I don't think that I got properly clean for about 6 months, in fact, I can still smell it!! Mad Mad

So who did the catering ? Andy Clyde's Commandos ( you kids have altered that to "Andy Capp" ) RUC or the blanket brigade ? That would have been properly
hygenic ! And did they still have those steaming vats ....... Wash, Rinse & Sterilise ...... or was it just a quick wipe on the leg of the combats ? I was always scared stiff I'd drop one my irons in the greasy liquid, but I don't think anyone ever did. Strange, I can't remember what we had at weekend TAVR camps......... maybe the three vats were old hat by then.

It was in the days before it became the Maze, we were under canvas and, due to the nature of our deployments it was a 24hr "Running buffet" served up in a Marquee. The Tables GS, 6 foot were subjected to continual scrubbing, spud bashing and the pan dive was like a conveyor belt, not a nice environment at all.

PostSubject: Re: Six Months Extra   13/7/2012, 16:21

Never quite found out how this " six months extra" stuff to add half a year to the conscripts' 18 months incarceration was introduced.

Was it just " All them scheduled for demob tomorrow stand fast, remainder, to your duties fall out ! ............ You lot ! Why are you still here ? Get your kitbags unpacked, you've six more more months to do !" Or was it done more gently, a warning period, time to reflect for some on how lucky they were after doing quick checks on the date and counting the fingers. Must have been quite traumatic if your intake number was the wrong side of the deadline. Lots of FYHL bandied about no doubt.

That really surprises me, for the NS lads took all the bad news in their stride and would be grateful for the chance to extend their service when it was for the good of the country. And the Regs would have kept a low profile in our lot. They were outnumbered 6 to 1 and there were no cats to kick !

At 16 LAA there was nearly a similar situation around Feb 1956. CO's muster parade, everyone apprehensive after all the tin hats had been brushed over with some surplus sandy coloured paint ......... " All you men with more than six months to do..." he said, " ......... have been given the honour of fighting for your country, a chance to come face to face with the Queen's enemies.........." What ? Us ? Five star cowards almost to a man. Not too bad as it happened, the over-six monthers went to Cyprus to shine searchlights on the clouds and make it easier for the opposition to move about at night. The rest relaxed for they'd be back in UK in two months.

Hi I am new to this forum as I have only just signed in. I am also new to computers so bear with me.
I was in the last but one intake of the RASC. Went to Aldershot then Yoevil for driver training. That was October 1960. Was posted to wrexham barracks Mulhiem Germany. Had some lucky breaks. Managed to get into the rugby team and also got the job of driver to Barry Davies ( sports commentator ) Have seen some comments about extra six months. There were thirteen of us in Mulhiem and we were all informed about two months before our release date. We were not happy chappies. One lad nicked a champ and shot off. They found him about a week later somewhere in Holland. I wonder where he is now, in fact it would be great to hear from any of those last national service men. I must admit I did not want to go into the army but I was glad afterwards, like most people I expect.

Welcome Jeff ! Good to have another NS man aboard ! Not like the old days when we outnumbered the Regs., but those here are a kindly bunch who tolerate my urge to be insubordinate on occasion.

I'm a bit confused by your remarks quoted above......... my lot knew exactly when their demob group was going out and could reel off the number of years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes & seconds left before their release date. Can I assume that those in the last intakes were expecting early demob and wouldn't have had to do the full two years ? ............. and glad you went in the army........Guess we all are in retrospect but even more glad to get out at the time !
