P90X Doubles Calendar – Review of the workout schedule

The p90x doubles calendar is the third workout schedule for the p90x system. We looked at the p90x classic calendar last time, now it is time to review the schedule that has redefined p90x as one of the best home workout programs on the market. The doubles schedule is what will take you to the next level in your fitness goals. The calendar for the most part follows the classic calendar with the exception of adding additional workouts daily, this is usually something in the morning and then a workout in the afternoon. Hence, the name doubles.

What is different about the doubles calendar?

The doubles calendar follows the classic calendar with one exception, “Cardio X”. You will now make use of every DVD in the program. The only real difference between the classic and doubles calendar is the A.M. “Cardio X” Sessions in the mornings. Phase 2 and 3 add extra workouts to the program; the good news is that is it only three times a week at first. When you follow the calendar, the workouts usually fall on the Monday, Wednesday, and Friday sessions in phase 2. Phase 1 is exactly like the classic p90x workout. Phase 3 is where things go to another level; you will now be doing doubles 4 times a week.

The design of the doubles calendar is to give you another challenge with the p90x workout. The design of the calendar helps you to build endurance for the workouts over time. Very few people are able to finish the classic p90x program; even fewer are able to complete doubles.
