P90X Workout Schedule & Calendar

The P90X workout is one of the most intense home fitness programs ever created, and it comes with an equally powerful schedule.

For those who have what it takes to stick with this calendar for the full 90 days, they can expect to get shredded, lean, and probably in the best shape of their lives.

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!

In years past, if you wanted to try P90x, your only option was to order the full catalog of DVDs.

This was great, but times have changed, and Beachbody recently released their entire catalog of workout programs in one convienent On Demand Service.

Final Thoughts

p90x workout program by tony horton

As you can see, there is a lot of work involved with this schedule, and it certainly isn’t for the faint of heart.

P90X produces amazing results for the true Xers, but it definitely isn’t for everyone. It’s going to take plenty of hard work, sweat, and dedication.

But, if you’re ready to commit yourself to getting into the best shape of your life then it may be just the program you’ve been looking for.

You can try P90X with the Free 14-Day Trial, or you can buy the full program for under $60.

Both are great options, depending on what your preference is. Learn more by visiting the links below:
