DDP Yoga - anyone tried it (1 Viewer)

I was reading through top dogs I hate eating healthy and exercising thread. Someone mentioned DDP Yoga and curiously I clicked the link. I've been interested in the health benefits of Yoga and the flexibility it could bring back to my body. I'm over 40 and currently losing weight but I feel so inflexible, used to be like gumby.

In addition I live/travel in an RV right now and it's difficult finding a place to workout. Some campgrounds have gyms but the few that do are usually pathetic. Had knee surgery last spring and between that and my weight I'm afraid to run. So I've been walking and riding my bike. I'd like more resistance to begin building muscle back up, I was reading into some body weight stuff and was considering doing that.

So I am reading the DDP page and it's intriguing, but I have some caveats...

1. It's created by a wrestler. Is this make believe Yoga? Are the stretches real :) Seriously, is this credible and does anyone know anyone who has done it and it's worked for them?

2. I've avoided Yoga because honestly the spiritual side of it is a non-starter for me. I know to some it's very important and I don't mean to disparage them but for me personally, identifying my chakras and trying to find some kind of enlightenment has zero appeal, if anything it's the greatest hindrance to getting involved. I'm very confident in my spirituality and I've done my time with Eastern Philosophies earlier in my life. My goal is purely athletic/fitness and anything beyond that is a waste of time to me.

3. The whole thing looks kind of infomercial-ly to me. The whole package just kind of gives me the hard sell heebie jeebies. Nice testimonials though, including Jake the Snake.

4. In case I didn't mention it, it's created by a professional wrestler. Following a "Fitness/Yoga program written by a wrestler" kind of has a following a "religion created by a science fiction writer" feel to it.

Well there, I've probably offended both Hindus and Scientologists. But my desire to find a self contained program that can help me with strength, flexibility, and weight loss but can be done in or just outside my RV is real. Any experience with this?

I do hot yoga and really like it a lot. I wouldn't touch the DDP. If you want a great workout video with yoga mixed in try Jillian Michaels Body Revolution. It was a great workout for 90 days and I lost 35 lbs.

If you just want yoga there are plenty of you tube videos that are just as good as a class.

 
While I can understand why people don't take it too seriously, the proof is in the pudding when you look guys like Jake Roberts and Scott Hall. They weren't in bad shape they were near death because of the demons they inflicted on themselves. Now they are in pretty shape, living much healthier, and actually productive in helping other wrestlers. Sure they can relapse at any time but so far so good. I think the fact that lots of wrestlers and MMA guys who bodies are in tough shape use it has to be considered as a plus

 
I saw this video a while back. I didn't realize he was doing DDP, thought it was just regular Yoga.
Do the p90x yoga and its awesome. In that, its not really spiritual, but more of just a stress reliever. I don't really have stress but the physical benefits are pretty awesome. Takes a bit of time to build up to some of the poses but its quite a workout.
I hate every second of that video.

I love the way I feel when I'm finished with it, but I don't enjoy actually doing any of it.

for a sec, I thought you were talking about the ddp video helping that guy. :)

 
No way. I saw this thread title earlier and thought Diamond Dallas Page but figured it meant something else and moved on. It really is DDP, lol.

 
Ok so when I heard "DDP" I immediately thought of DDP I knew who he was from my addiction to wrasling in the 90's but I honestly didn't think it had anything to do with him - I almost P00ped my pants at 1:45 seconds when his face pops up in the youtube video.

This is awesome!!!!

 
I stopped watching wrestling back in the Hulk Hogan/Mr. T days. But if there was a new Yoga work out called Bob Backlund Yoga or Jimmy's Superfly Super Fit Yoga or something I would have a hard time taking is seriously. I think I might to give this a try though. I don't think I'm in any kind of shape for P90X. This could be just my speed as I strengthen my knee and get the weight down.

The proof is in the pudding.You have a bunch of guys on a bodybuilding forum who are obviously into fitness, and those of them with experience with DDP Yoga testify that it's a legit workout.

You also have ex-wrestlers who were grossly out of shape and perhaps near death who turned their lives and bodies around with DDP Yoga.

And you have the above linked video.

Will DDP Yoga work for everybody? No, because not everyone fully commits to their workout and diet regiment. If you do commit to it, however, there are examples of it working for guys in far worse shape than you. Both Jake Roberts and Scott Hall, DDP Yoga disciples, look far better today than they have at any time over the past decade.

 
Yeah, it's the bodybuilding forum that gives me the most confidence, that's why I'm going to give it a try.

I laughed when I clicked thinking "Diamond Dallas Page"...now I'm thinking, "you can't be serious."
 
I ordered this last week after an offer from a podcast took 40% off. I just got rid of my gym membership to cut down on spending and was looking for something I could do from home.

Minimal investment with some pretty impressive results from those that took it seriously. We will see how it goes after a few weeks. Pretty pumped to get started.

Been mulling this over for a while. I actually found out recently that a high school classmate of mine is a trainer/photographer is now friends with one of the more dramatic transformation subjects on the DDP site- www.staceymorris.com

She said it's the real deal. How are YOU making out with it??

 
He was on Shark Tank on Friday and the dude from the YouTube video was with him.

Why was that guy filming himself from day 1 on?

I am now suspicious.

I don't film my workouts for future infomercial use, maybe I should start.

It's all CGI.

I am really enjoying it so far. I have started slow with dealing with a funeral and a sore elbow the last couple of weeks, but this is going to be something that works for me. I want to do it.

They talk about taking early photos of yourself to show before and after. Arthur contacted Page before he started, and I'm sure Page requested that he filmed his progress. Arthur shows up in the workouts for the discs I have now. The thing to remember is that Page started with Yoga for Regular Guys and has repackaged it to be DDPYoga.

I will have to watch the Shark Tank segment. Did he get funding? Did he say what he needed?

I think he wanted a few hundred grand to buy tv time for infomercials.

I just saw the Shark Tank episode last night...no, they did not get funding. Not because it's a bad product, but from what I've seen on Shark Tank, it's very rare that a fitness program ever gets Shark Tank investment. Usually they say they don't like to invest in trends, but as much as anything I think piracy issues hurt...it's just too easy to get a torrent and there's little incentives for the average joe to buy through the site.

I suspect their primary goal was to get their story on Shark Tank and their secondary goal was Shark Tank investment.

I'm a guy who laughed at Yoga going men...until I tried it. Actually, I did a Yoga/Pilates fusion class at Lifetime and it was a butt kicking workout that had me in the best shape of my life after 6 weeks (160 minutes a week). I'm interested in checking out DDPYoga and think a program geared towards men and "tough-guys" is a pretty great idea.

Arthur was looking for a program to help him. Page took him on and asked that he document the process.

If you don't mind my asking- what level did you purchase? I'm feeling like the difference between Pack I ( $64 ) and the MAX Pack ( currently offered for $89 ) is too small to fret over.

I got the MAX pack, and I think it's going to be worth it for the extra disc.

If you go to ddpyoga.com/jericho, you can get the MAX pack for $69.99.

I've also heard DDP will occasionally contact buyers. He's a salesman.

I have a co-worker that's doing it. He likes it and has noticed some improvement.

 
Does DDP do the instruction or does he have hot women? Not sure I can stand looking at DDP everyday.

That is the one part that keeps me from fully recommending it across the board. This is DDP's baby and he is front and center every second of the way. He has hot chicks working out with him, but he is the center stage frontman. With that you get a lot of "bro talk", way too many "this ain't your mama's yoga" and more than enough "BANGs" to last a lifetime.

As a wrestling fan, I find humor/nostalgia in it, but it would absolutely turn off some people that I know that I would otherwise recommend this to.

 
I'm in. The wife is in. We are both looking to shake things up! Just took delivery of the MAX Pack here at work. We will be kicking off the 13 week program beginning Monday.

:thumbup:

 
The wife and I started it awhile ago. I still do it. the wife hated DDP and went back to normal hot girl instructor yoga

My wife likes to be told what to do by men. ;)

How long you been doing DDP, Buddy??
