NOTE: If you are using P90X and you really want to ramp up your training, you should join one of my challenge groups where you will join a small group of people to keep you accountable. The combination of training peaks and an accountability challenge group could be the answer to finally getting the results you are looking for! Plus, you can win money just for working out! SEE THE CHALLENGE GROUP OPTIONS HERE
When you buy a copy of P90X, you get a nice workout calendar and a schedule that tells you what workouts to do on which day. In addition, on the Team Beachbody website, you can download workout sheets so that you can track your progress with each workout. If you don’t have access to the Team Beachbody website, simply go to my website and click on the “join” button to get a free account (NOTE: after you hit the join button, look for the “try free membership” button. The club membership is nice as well and gives you access to the meal planner but if you want the free membership you have to look for the little gray button).
Anyway, that is all well and good, but what if there was a way to go through the P90X workout schedule in an online tracking program where you could enter your reps for each exercise, upload heart rate info for each workout, and add notes about each workout? Well, now there is. I have created the P90X classic, P90X Lean, and P90X Doubles workout schedules in Training Peaks and they are available for download for free! I use Training Peaks to provide all of my triathlete clients with their workout plans each week and now I am starting to use it with my P90X clients.
Here is what your schedule will look like in Training Peaks:
What can you do with this workout schedule in training peaks?
1- Upload Heart Rate info from dozens of compatible heart rate monitors
2- Enter planned and actual reps on your resistance workouts (I have entered each of the exercises in the resistance workouts so it is super easy to enter your data).
3- Enter daily metrics such as weight, how much sleep you got that night, how you felt during the workout, and more.
4- Add additional workouts (e.g. if you are doing your own hybrid program and adding Insanity workouts).
5- I offer free P90X coaching (as do all Beachbody Coaches), but with the Training Peaks schedule, you can attach your account to me as your coach and I will be able to watch your progress and keep you on track. Email me to find out how to attach your account to me as your coach. email@example.com

Select the date you want it to start or end and the plan will then appear in your calendar.
5- You can now click on any workout on the calendar to input data into that workout.

7- Don’t forget to log your workouts in Beachbody’s WOWY super gym as well. Why? Because you have a chance to win money on any day that you log your workout there. How do you log a workout in WOWY? Well, first you need a free account with Team Beachbody. You can get one of those by going here and clicking the “join” button as described at the beginning of this blog post. Then, once you are logged in to your account, go to the “Get Fit” tab and click on “WOWY Super Gym” and log your workout to be entered to win money.
I have also created a presentation with screen shots that will show you exactly how to download the schedules and input data. Download that presentation in PDF format here: Training Peaks P90X Presentation.
