Beachbody is well-known for creating some of the most challenging home workout programs available. In the last several years, programs such as Insanity, Insanity Asylum, P90X, P90X2 and T25 have grown increasingly popular and brought the company to the forefront of the fitness world. Continuing this momentum, Beachbody released its latest and greatest workout program, and the third version of the P90X series known as P90X3.

If you are a fan of Tony Horton and the grueling P90X workouts, you will not be disappointed by this addition to the series to complete the trilogy. P90X3 is the perfect combination of the first and second P90X series in one. It offers workouts that are even more demanding than those in its predecessors, yet they can be completed in half the time. No more excuses to miss a workout. P90X3 will work your body to the extreme in as little as 30 minutes per day.

Introduction

P90X3 is Tony Horton’s latest workout program designed to shred your body, and get you in the best shape of your life in as little as 90 days. Tony has been working on P90X3 for over a year, and it was finally ready to be released to the masses on December 10, 2013. The first two programs he created, P90X and P90X2, included long workouts ranging from 30 to 60 minutes in length. With P90X3, Tony eliminates the ability to use lack of time as an excuse to get out of your workouts because each workout in the series is only 30 minutes in length. This is one of the biggest differences between this series and its predecessors, and one of the main reasons it will attract fitness beginners and fitness pros alike. Work and family demands leave little time for a workout, but virtually anyone can squeeze in a 30 minute workout each day. It is short enough to be completed before work, on your lunch break or before hitting the sack in the evening.

What Equipment Will I Need?

One of the differences between P90X3 and previous versions is that you will need minimal equipment to complete the P90X3 workouts. This makes them even easier to do when you are at work, on the road for business or even away on vacation. Per Tony Horton, the only equipment you will need to complete the workouts in the P90X3 series are a good pair of cross trainer shoes, several dumbbells of varying weights and/or resistance bands, a pull up bar, a yoga mat and a medicine or stability ball. He stresses not to get running shoes because they are bulkier and do not allow for lateral movements as well as cross trainers do.

P90X3 Workouts

The majority of the P90X3 workouts are 30 minutes in length with a 2 to 3 minute cool down period in the end. The only exception is the Ab Ripper X3, which is only 15 minutes long. The workouts are designed to be completed in three blocks, each lasting between 4 to 5 weeks each. The first two blocks last 4 weeks and the last block is 5 weeks long. If you want to continue past the initial 90 day period, you can follow the Elite Block calendar and add an additional 4 weeks to the program. If you wish to do this, you will need to purchase the Deluxe or Ultimate P90X3 Kits since the Elite Block includes three additional workouts not included with the P90X3 Base Kit. If you prefer, these workouts can also be purchased separately in addition to the base kit itself.

In addition to the block schedule, you will also have the option to follow workout schedules depending on your fitness goals. The four options include the Classic, Lean, Doubles and Mass.

Classic

The Classic program includes a wide variety of workouts spread out throughout the 90 days. It aims to give you the best whole body workout with a balance between strength, cardio and conditioning.

Lean

If your goal is to lean out your physique and burn fat, you will want to choose the Lean workout schedule. This focuses more on the cardiovascular aspect of the program and emphasizes the workout videos that will get you there.

Doubles

Doubles is exactly as it sounds. It is double the workouts each day. If a 30 minute workout is not enough for you, you can choose to follow the Doubles workout schedule, and do two workouts per day instead of one. This will give you a one hour workout each day comprised of two workouts within the P90X3 series.

Mass

Mass is new to the P90X series in general and is geared towards men and women that want to increase muscle mass in their bodies. It focuses on the strength portion of the series and is designed to put on weight. If you opt for this schedule, you should already be at your desired weight and plan on gaining some weight as increased muscle as well.

Workout DVDs

The 16 workouts come in 8 DVDs separated into four categories. These are Resistance, Power, Cardio and Core, Flex and Balance. Below is an outline explaining how the workouts are categorized.

P90X3 Nutrition Guide

One of the perks of each and every Beachbody program is that they all come with a thorough nutrition guide to help guide what you eat as you reshape your body. Proper nutritional intake is responsible for up to 80 percent of the results you will see as opposed to exercise being only 20. If you want to see real results, you will need to incorporate the P90X3 workouts, along with the nutritional guidance into your daily activity.

The P90X3 Nutritional Guide includes various options depending on the type of diet you follow on a regular basis. It is even available with vegan options and encourages vegan customers to suggest tips and ideas on how to further modify the P90X3 meal plan to be more vegan friendly.
