P90X Lean Workout Schedule

Posted by admin | Program | Friday 17 February 2012 6:33 am

If you dig P90X but are going for a more lean look (vs bulk/muscle), the P90X Lean Workout schedule is probably right up your alley. It uses the identical 12 DVDs from the original program only in a different order to maximize cardio and calorie-burning potential. During exercise, your body will stack muscle when you offer it finite and progressive resistance (and even moreso with muscle confusion). However, if you limit the weight and match it with long, swift movements, you’ll put the lean back in your workout.

Of course, there’s nothing stopping you from finding a happy medium between bulk and lean (trial and error works best for those cases), but if you’re just interested in a fit, lean body, the schedule below will get you well on your way.

Lean Schedule – Stage 1: Weeks 1, 2 & 3

Day One: Core Synergistics
Day Two: CardioX
Day Three: Arms & Shoulders and Ab Ripper X
Day Four: YogaX
Day Five: Legs & Back and Ab Ripper X
Day Six: Kenpo X
Day Seven: Rest (or if you’re feeling good, do the X Stretch)

Lean Schedule – Stage One: Week 4, time to give your muscles a break

Day One: YogaX
Day Two: Core Synergistics
Day Three: Kenpo X
Day Four: X Stretch
Day Five: CardioX

Day Three: Chest, Triceps & Shoulders and Ab Ripper X
Day Four: Yoga X

    Hi Tony,

    I am a sucessful p90x candidate, i am a 21 year old from New Zealand. I thoroughly enjoyed p90x and have all the photos to prove it works! It has taken me a year to convince my partner to do it also and as of today she has been doing it with me for 3 weeks and loves it. If i wanted to show others here in NZ of how great your programme is, what do i need to do? really would appreciate your time to e-mail me back as it worked for me and im sure with some encouragement and support it would work for many others here in our small country! Thank you
