P90X Round 2 Day 18: Interval X

Hmmm .... some of you are probably thinking Day 18 should be Yoga ...Well, you are right it should be. But I had a TON of energy and wanted to really Bring it so I decided to put in Interval X..... and I hate Yoga so this was an easy decision. However, I do recommend sticking to the schedule on your first run through P90X!

If you were wondering .... Interval X is from the P90X PLUS workouts and it makes Plyometrics feel like a casual walk in the park. It is 42 minutes long and you only have one 60 second break with 5 minutes of warm up and 3 minutes of cool down so the actual workout is only 35 minutes. You do a total of 24 different Interval type exercises. Yes, 24 exercises in only 35 minutes is brutal. I burned a total of 495 calories in these 35 minutes and my average heart rate was 156 BPM.

As a side note, my wife Annie decided to try the Interval X workout today. Annie is in very good shape. She does cardio, spinning, and body combat like 4 times a week. She said she was shaking midway through Interval X because it kicked her butt so bad! Much better than Yoga! See is very close to joining this P90X cult!

Tomorrow is Legs, Backs, and Ab Ripper X.

Thanks for Reading,



  1. I just ended my 5th week of P90X (first round). I came across your site and read about the Interval X. Sounds like something I'd like to try. I currently do HIIT (interval training) as part of my doubles. So Interval X is now peaking my interest.

    Btw, I am also journaling my daily P90X workouts too...

  2. Boomer, Thanks for stopping by. Interval X is part of the P90X PLUS series. Overall, I like the original better than the PLUS but a couple of the workouts in the PLUS are excellent and in my opinion make nice additions to mix into my workouts.
