30 minute workouts using the P90X Classic Schedule

Most of us know and love P90X. Not as many of us, but still quite a few, have fallen in love with P90X3. I really like the P90X3 schedule and the workout scheduling, but part of me wished that the workouts were more like the original P90X schedule, just shorter. This had my brain thinking, what if I took the P90X3 workouts and slotted them into the original P90X schedule, and then filled in the blanks on my own? I have been toying with the idea of filming my own workouts and putting them on YouTube for a while now, so this seemed like a great place to start.

To complete this schedule, you will obviously need to purchase the P90X3 program. I have put the workouts from the P90X3 Elite DVD into the schedule as options, although you are obviously more than welcome to sub X3 Ab Ripper out (for example) for something else like the original Ab Ripper X, or even X2 Ab Ripper from P90X2.

There are some workouts that do not have obvious equivalents in P90X3 when compared to P90X, so that is where my YouTube videos have come in. You will find these days hyperlinked in the schedule below to my 30 minute workout on YouTube.

Some days have options because, well, there is lots of great workouts in P90X3, so why not have them all thrown into the mix?

Finally, the transition weeks are slightly different because of what I just mentioned, there are a few new workouts in X3 that just couldn't be passed up.

From there, everything else should be pretty self-explanatory. Let me know if you have any questions by commenting below.
