P90X Workout Schedule & Calendar (with PDF) – Exactly When You’ll Be Doing Every Exercise

the p90x workout schedule

The P90X workout is one of the most intense home fitness programs ever created, and it comes with an equally powerful schedule. Basically, if you stick with this calendar for the full 90 days, you will be shredded, lean, and in the best shape of your life.

P90X comes with several different options for getting started: Classic, Doubles, or Lean. This is great because you can decide where you want to start with the program, and then when your 90 days are up, if you’re loving the way you feel, you can try another version to keep things going.

If you’re brand new to P90X you will most likely want to start with the Lean or Classic version, but with this in mind, let’s take look at each one, just so you have an idea of what to expect when getting started:

Classic: With this version of P90X you will be doing 3 resistance training workouts and 3 workouts that are more cardio intensive every week. The P90X brand of resistance training includes a lot of body weight exercises, like push-ups and squats, but you will also need some resistance bands or dumbbells and a pull-up bar.

Lean: If your goal is to lose the most weight, or get that nice looking lean muscle, then this may be the program you want to start with. Here you will be doing 2 resistance workouts per week, and 4 cardio or yoga workouts.

Doubles: This is the most intense version of the P90X program, and is typically reserved for those who have completed one full cycle of X, or those who are in great shape already. With the Doubles version, you will be doing the full Classic version of P90X, along with a cardio or yoga workout. Essentially, you’ll be working out twice per day, 6 days per week – a full blown shred fest!
