How many P90X Workout DVD's use Chin up bar
Hi there,

I am currently doing P90 Master Series and am loving it. However, I would like this to be a stepping stone to P90x.

There is one slight snag, however, I travel a huge amount with work and end up in hotel rooms a lot. I can carry resistance bands easily so no problem there. However, lugging a chin up bar around the world is a different story. emoticon

If only one or two workouts use it I could schedule those workouts at weekends when I am at home. However, if several use it I might be in trouble.

Can anyone tell me how many DVD's use the Chin up bar?

All the best

Any work out that works the back requires chin ups, so off the top of my head a min of 2 to 3 work outs per week will require them. You can do modified chin ups with resistance bands, they do show you how to do this in the videos.

Does anyone know exactly which workouts they are?

Just so I can try and plan the workouts.

Any help much appreciated.

All the best

Chin ups are only done twice a week. In phase I, they are on day 1(chest and back) and day 5(legs and back). In phase II, they are on day 3(back and biceps), and day 5(legs and back). In phase III, the workouts alternate for four weeks. Phase I approach for weeks 1 and 3 and phase II approach for weeks 2 and 4.
