That's actually not what P90X is, if you read the booklets. I'm glad it's working for you, but they make it very clear that it's for people who are already somewhat fit, and need a super hardcore workout to take it that next step. You can definitely follow P90X to bulk up, you just have to keep increasing your weights. I'm not going to argue with your results, though, since those speak louder than anything.
There are different versions of the P90X workout ... I'm doing the "Classic" version, and still doing it ... I'm now at about 219-220 lbs every morning, for about 2 weeks now, but I've also taken some days off in the last couple of weeks, for various reasons (exhaustion/depression/no time/ other reasons).

I started week 6 yesterday, and I do plan on finishing the 90-day program ... we'll see how many days it actually takes me ... I know it's gonna be more than 100 ... lol

But I still have people that haven't seen me in a while, comment on how much weight I've lost, and I see it myself in the extra muscle built, and in the extra exercise reps that I can do now, compared to when I started.

As far as body fat, I'm still at about 20% .... but was as high as 35% at one point, in my younger days, or maybe just last year when I weighed 275 lbs, don't know for sure since I think the last time I was measured for body fat I think I was in high school (about 18-20yrs ago ... lol)
