from my experience the bonus workouts are just at the very end of the regular workouts

for example in shoulders & arms tony horton will tell you when there is about 13 minutes left that the bonus section is about to start and you can stay and do it or stop.

and i know that doesnt 100% answer your question.

Are you talking about the bonus portions tacked on to the end of certain DVDs, like Shoulders & Arms, or the bonus workouts on the Bring It DVD (I think that's where I saw them)?

I've not had a look at those two extra bonus workouts, so I'm not sure if they're resistance or cardio. But, the best advice for getting those in would be (if they are cardio) to do them opposite your normal workout times. In the morning if you typically workout in the evening, and vice versa.
This kinda falls into the Doubles scheme for tackling P90X...adding some sort of cardio in each day to burn more fat.

I think the OP is refering to Cardio X, UML and the other one.

Cardio X is used for the Lean program and Doubles, so thats where that gets used.

UML and the other one is pretty much where ever you want it.

Personally I do Cardio X as well as Stretch X on the recovery day, maybe slip one of the bonus workouts in there?

I was referring to the 2 bonus workouts on the "How to Bring It" dvd. I am planning to do the doubles program after my recovery week (this week) but I was wondering where to fit these in because I do not see them integrated in like the Cardio X is. Thanks for any help!
