P90X is a 90-day at-home fitness program consisting of 12 different workouts. Among the 12 workouts are cardio and strength training routines. You won't need any resistance for some of the workouts while others can make use of dumbbells -- though resistance bands can be used in place of them.
Ab Ripper X
The "Ab Ripper X" workout is scheduled alongside most of the strength workouts during most weeks. It's designed to strengthen your abs and obliques with a total of 12 core exercises that force your muscles to work against the resistance of your own body weight. Each of the 12 exercises, which include a variety of crunches and sit-ups, are completed on an exercise mat and don't require the use of dumbbells.
Plyometrics, Cardio X and Kenpo X
The "Kenpo X," "Cardio X" and "Plyometrics" workouts are designed to burn calories and get your heart pumping without dumbbells. According to BeachBody.com, the "Kenpo X" workout features punching and kicking exercises that are meant to build endurance, balance and coordination. The "Plyometrics" workout features explosive jumping movements and the "Cardio X" session is a lower-impact workout that includes a battery of aerobic activities and poses taken from the "Plyometrics," "Kenpo X" and "Yoga X" workouts.
Yoga X and X Stretch
The "Yoga X" workout features poses and movements that challenge your muscular strength, balance and flexibility. The workouts require no weights and feature traditional yoga poses such as warrior pose and sun salutation. The "X Stretch" workout is scheduled during the active rest weeks of the program, which are designed to provide your body with additional recovery time. The exercises in the "X Stretch" workout include both static and ballistic stretches, none of which require dumbbells.
Some of the P90X workouts require resistance beyond your body weight. You can use dumbbells for these workouts but if you don't have access to dumbbells, a set of resistance bands can be used instead. In each of the P90X strength training workout videos, there is a person demonstrating how to modify exercises to perform them with a resistance band. Instead of recording how much weight you lifted on the P90X worksheets, jot down which color band you used or if you had to increase tension on the band by changing your grip to decrease the loop size.
