P90X3 Classic Schedule

P90X3 Lean Schedule

For a more toned look, the P90X3 Lean Schedule is the ideal choice. It is a nice combination along with the classic schedule. You do not lose much weight as you would following a classic schedule. The Lean schedule is more focused on cardio and mobility. Your strength can be increased and muscle gain will be obtained but the only difference is that you will maintain a lean figure. 3 “blocks” which are 4 to 5 weeks each are embedded into this schedule. You need to have a real good dedication to each block so as to get good results.

P90X3 Mass Schedule

For the tough exercise routine handlers, this is the schedule to go for. Once you have achieved your goal weight you can follow this intense schedule to build massive muscles. Following the P90X3 Mass Schedule is comparable or even greater than the work training you do in your gym. If you have more time, you can also do a Doubles schedule alongside. The Mass Schedule focuses on adding bulk rather than getting ripped. While following this workout calendar, make sure you consume a lot of calories as it is highly essential to gain mass. During each set make sure you stay in the Hypertrophy range and use weights that you find suitable. Minimizing the rest time between each set add to your end result.

P90X3 Doubles Schedule

This P90X3 workout schedule is more focused on cardio workouts. Also, people looking for extra weight loss should definitely go for the doubles. The doubles schedule consists of 3 phases. In the first phase, it is the standard workouts. The second and third phases have additional workouts with the third one having supplementary workouts. People who had an injury in the past and not yet fully recovered are not advised to take up this schedule. It is highly recommended to do the classic schedule before you even attempt doubles as it can do more harm than good. In case you lack a good base, the body’s ability to recover is brought down by this schedule. If you are ready for a challenge, this is the one for you.

P90X vs P90X3

The major difference between the old award-winning P90X workout and P90X3 is the time it takes. P90X takes about an hour or more while the P90X3 workout schedule is only a 30-minute schedule. Now many people simply do not have 60-90 minutes of exercise time daily owing to their hectic life. Also, the P90X3 schedule is comparatively less intense and uses less equipment than the P90X. All these does make this workout program popular for the average person.

The Boat Plow comes last.

The Challenge

This block is all about Pull-ups and Push-ups. It consists of a variety of push-ups and pull-ups.
As the name itself suggests, The Challenge is all about competing against yourself. You have to improve yourself by pushing yourself to the limits.


Aimed at burning your body fat to a whole new level, the incinerator is very intense. For leaner muscle tone and more muscle gain the Incinerator is ideal.

The Warrior

This workout requires absolutely no equipment and that is a huge plus point. There is a lot of core and cardio exercises along with squats and lunges. The 3 1-minute water breaks were quite necessary too.

Eccentric Upper

The exercises in this workout are done in an eccentric way. This workout is solely for the upper body which involves lot of push-ups, pull -ups, curls, triceps and much more.

Eccentric Lower

Focuses on your lower body, the exact opposite of Eccentric Upper. You also do all the lower body exercise such as lunges, squats, and kicks in an eccentric way.

Agility X

Specially designed as a cardio workout, all Agility X need is a marker as equipment. Running, jumping and squatting were all involved. 30 minutes go fast when you are into Agility X.


It is a 30-minute heavy cardio workout. Also, your legs get worked up heavily. The Triometrics is quite different from the Plyometrics in P90X.


Launching and power moves were the main ones in this workout. It consisted of jumps, squats, push-ups, pull-ups, pop-hops etc. Great leg -strengthening moves are involved.


Using weights, the CVX involves a cardio workout. Endurance is important for CVX. For complete burning up of body calories, there are core works too.


Includes Martial Arts style moves just like the Kenpo in P90X. It is tiring and also includes a lot of sprawls. The moves can take some time to be figured out.


It includes a lot of Lunges and Planks. Each of the moves in the Accelerator was a minute long and the speed kept on increasing. The quads get worked up really well.

X3 Yoga

It merges Yoga into the workout. It aims at increasing your flexibility because that is also very important. Balance and core strength are improved with the X3 Yoga.

Pilates X

Core activation and control is what is aimed by the Pilates X. It can be hard to follow Pilates X at first. Weak parts of your body are targeted by Pilates X.


Combining a lot of isometric moves, it aims at balance and strength improvement. At the end, you have to hold a crane pose for 30 seconds which is a burn-out for your body.


It prepares you for more progress and involves dynamic stretching and movements. It works your muscles and core and there is no downtime.



Nutrient intake is one important factor to any of the workouts. To get the desired results, it is essential that the right amount of nutrients is consumed. With the P90X3 workout schedule, macro-nutrients are the major requirements. It is just like the power 90 meal plan- Carbohydrates, Proteins, and Fats.

  • Learn to control what you eat as you need to know what your body requires. Gobbling up a lot of food is not the answer, whereas knowing how many calories you need gets you the result.
  • The best five times to eat during the daytime should be practiced. You also need to make sure that you stop eating 3 hours before bedtime in the night.
  • Drinking plenty of water is very essential. I cannot stress this enough. Keeping your body hydrated is a must.
  • Drink at least 2 liters of water a day!
  • Multi-Vitamin essentials can be included in your diet to power up your nutrition intake.
  • Eating during the wrong times will NOT help you reduce weight. For good results eat during the right time.
