P90x Workout Schedule Phase 1 Review
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The P90X Workout Schedule Phase 1 is the beginning stage for a 13 week workout program that can expedite weight loss. The total number of phases for the P90X workout program is 3. They are also termed the classic phase, lean phase and doubles phase. Some users have found P90X quite helpful as it follows a systematic approach combining normal exercises with Yoga. The phase 1 comprises four different stages with each stage lasting for just a week.

It is interesting to know that the P90X workout schedule phase 1 has its own diet plan with the sole objective of making your body shed body fat, while feeding your muscles adequately. You are expected to spend from 45 minutes to one hour for every workout you do, and if after the first phase, which does last for four weeks, you find out that you actually underperformed, you can decide to extend it say up to two weeks. The most important thing is not just completing the phases involved but getting the results.

But a word of caution here is that you should not aim to extend it any further, in fact it is better you give it your best so you do not extend the phase. The reason why you should not extend the program is that the efficiency of the entire program lies in the premise of mixing up things, which is also known within P90X as “muscle confusion”.

For the P90X workout schedule phase 1, you will try to make your body understand better how to process proteins more efficiently. This is achievable when you take foods that have high protein content, and those with very low carbohydrate content. This will eventually lead to the building and strengthening of your muscles too.

For the first week of the P90X workout schedule phase 1, you will have to start the first day exercising your back and chest area, and also include abdominal ripper X. On the second day, your exercise will basically be plyometric (exercises involving speedy movements aimed at improving the functioning of your nervous system). The third day involves arm and shoulder exercises and abdominal ripper X. Day 4 is for Yoga X. Day 5 involves back and leg exercises with abdominal ripper X. For day 6 you will be engaged in doing a unique fat-burning workout called Kenpo (a term that describes advanced martial arts skills practised in Hawaii and developed by Ed Parker). Lastly, on the 7th day you just rest or X stretch.

The same time table for the P90X workout phase 1 holds for the first three weeks, but the fourth week is termed the recovery week and as such, the exercise is quite different. The first and sixth days of the fourth week are for Yoga X, while the second and fifth days are for core synergistic. But for the third day you go for Kenpo and the last day is usually for Rest or X stretch.
