P90x Workout Schedule (Classic)

P90x has three different workout schedules: The P90x Classic, P90x Doubles, and P90x Lean. If you are new to P90x, it comes on 12 DVDs, which is explained in my Power 90X Extreme Training System blog post. It consists of high-intensity muscular workouts led by fitness instructor Tony Horton. Please take a look around this site for diet tips, exercise tips, and other Beachbody programs.

The classic version of the P90x Workout Schedule is designed for burning fat and building muscle. Please note that this schedule will build muscle! If you are looking to lose weight and staying lean, take a look at the P90x Lean Schedule.
