Ditto all of the above. It rules, and it takes a lot of time, more than most have. If you're pressed for time, I suggest the spartacus workouts Men's Health drew up. I've tweaked em quite a bit switching out exercises to customize it, but it's a good routine if you have less time.
When I was in the depths of having no free time whatsoever with two kids in diapers (diaper stereo I called it) I bought Tony Horton's 10 minute workout DVDs. They were good because sometimes that's literally all I had was 10 minutes..and if I had 20 minutes, I'd do another workout.
Do you do any other exercises to complement the p90x, like cardio or yoga?
right on man, thanks for the intel.
I don't know
I have watched others do it while I do something else.
My impression is that it is simply too much and nearly impossible to maintain for the long term.
Not to mention it is too much especially if you have a harder than average and time consuming job and a family.
I can see myself doing it if i had very few other responsibilities and a lot of time for rest, otherwise it is too much and too much equals little rest and overdoing it...
just gotta try it - you dont have to do the whole hr each day if you dont have the time.

even the trainers cant keep steady through that whole workout
I know it's going to sound lame, but I want to be on the Mick Fanning training program, or at least as close to it as practical for a married guy with a 9-to-5. I'm open-minded about anything that can help me surf and keep me in shape so that I'm still surfing into my 60s.
I've been doing P90x for several years, on and off and it works.
However, I started insanity last week and its just that. Maybe I got too confortable with P90x- Not sure - but Insanity is pushing my limits.
Ifg you guys are looking for one of the programs, always check craigslist. I scored insanity brand new for $40.
Crossfit. It's free and that's what SF Army uses. I don't know too much about it. My son is a Delta 18 and he told me about it this weekend. He says it's easier to maintain the intensity than the PX90 work outs. I'm going to give it a shot because All I do is cardio, because I'm old and lazy...
I also just started. I just rented a house and low and behold someone left about 200 DVD's in the hall closet. Including p90x, various yoga and pilates, and some straight to lifetime old lady flicks. I might get online and try to download the nutrition guide but so far my impression is that you can eat anything under the sun, and should, as you are doing straight cardio for an hour a day, by 90 days I bet I will be a cal burning machine.
