P90X and Gym Weight Training Hybrid Routine

New Year 2011 means a new round of P90X.

My goal for this round is to increase my upper body mass while working more on the core-abs and fighting skills. For this round, which is my 10th round, I will be doing P90X and stacking the routine with the bench press, back squat and other traditional gym weight-lifting routines.  Keep in mind, I do not substitute push-ups and pull-ups with bench presses or lat pull-downs, but I do add one separate day when I do all the heavy lifting.

- This hybrid routine is not for beginners; I would only recommend attempting this routine if you’ve done at least 3 rounds of P90X. Keep in mind that there is no classic recovery week here, so this is not for everyone. For beginners who are looking to add mass with P90X, click here.

  • What is 4×8 bi curl? Bicep Curls? If so is it good to do those right after an arm workout?

  • should i follow the same three phase diet program from p90x or stay on a certain phase during all the phases also can i replace muay thai with a cardio workout thanks

    • You should not attempt this routine if this is your first round of P90X. I mentioned that this is for someone who has done at least 2 or 3 rounds of P90X.

  • None of the P90X cardio workouts? Kenpo, Cardio, Plyo?

    • I do not do the normal P90X cardio because I am doing a hybrid routine. I do not recommend a hybrid routine for beginners at all, not until you have completed at least 2 rounds of P90X. A lot of P90X graduates on their 3rd round would hybrid it with Insanity, or Turbo Fire. I have done that a few rounds, and since the P90X Fusion Gym routine was my 10th round, I was looking for something different this time
