PiYo. Who would have thought a workout combining yoga and pilates would become my favorite workout program from Beachbody?!
I do suggest that before attempting a hybrid schedule, it is best if you’ve already completed one round of at least one of the programs you plan to incorporate into your hybrid schedule.
For instance, I’ve finished one round of PiYo, but I have not ever completed Body Beast. At this point in time, I would really like to build up a little bit of muscle, and I would like to keep the functional strength, flexibility and muscular endurance I’ve acquired with PiYo. So, I am currently combining PiYo and Body Beast.
I see a lot of hybrid schedules floating around the Internet that are not designed very well, so be very careful when selecting which hybrid program you choose. When selecting a hybrid program schedule, you want to be sure it does not overwork a certain area of the body – especially on back-to-back days. For instance, PiYo Buns on Day 1 and then Body Beast Legs on Day 2 would be a poorly designed schedule, because you would be overtraining your legs.
Each PiYo hybrid schedule I provide below are 30-60 days, depending on what other workout program it is being combined with. I also included what kind of results you can expect from each schedule, because after all, your results are what really matter.
PiYo and Body Beast Hybrid Schedule
At the moment, this is the workout schedule I am currently following.
Before designing this schedule, I looked everywhere for PiYo and Body Beast combination schedules. Unfortunately, all the ones I found started with the Body Beast Build workouts in the first month, and then the Bulk workouts in the second month. For better results, I strongly believe you would want to begin with the shorter Body Beast Bulk workouts for month one, and then progress to the longer Build workouts for the second month. This way, you’re building up your endurance.
What to expect? The focus of the PiYo and Body Beast hybrid program schedule is first to build muscle with the Beast workouts, and increase flexibility, muscular endurance and build functional strength with PiYo.
Note: If you have the deluxe PiYo workouts, PiYo Full Body Blast can be followed in place of Sculpt. PiYo Strong Legs can be used in replace of Buns.
PiYo and the 21 Day Fix Hybrid Schedule
This schedule combines the 21 Day Fix workouts with the Piyo workouts and is just 4 weeks long. If you would like to make this a 60-day schedule, simply repeat weeks 1 through 4.
What to expect? A super easy-to-follow diet plan with a workout that combines the innovative, muscle building, fat burning moves of the Fix with the functional strength, flexibility, and endurance of PiYo. Expect to lose weight fast and build lean muscle from head to toe.
Note: You do not have to use the 21 Day Fix containers if you don’t want. Either diet will provide you with healthy eating habits for a lifetime of well-being.
PiYo and Brazil Butt Lift Hybrid Schedule
After finishing the 60-day PiYo schedule, the first thing I tried to do was combine some of the PiYo workouts I loved with some of the Brazil Butt Lift workouts. I failed miserably on my first attempt from overdoing it. However, my second try was much more successful as I designed and followed a PiYo and Brazil Butt Lift Hybrid schedule that is targeted to toning your lower half.
What to Expect? A better looking backside. You’ll get the butt-targeting moves of BBL with the lengthening, strengthening and toning moves of PiYo to give you a smooth, sexy shape all over – especially your tush.
Note: I would follow the PiYo diet for this one. You’ll eat healthier overall, which will really help you get rid of cellulite and saddlebags.
PiYo and T25/P90X3 Hybrid Workout Schedules
Instead of creating my own PiYo and T25 hybrid schedule, I would like to share the schedule directly from Team Beachbody. It is a nice little schedule that is really great for those who know you will not have a lot of time for workouts. Here is the link.
What to expect? Get ready to get rid of fat fast. You’ll get the fat-blasting T25 workouts with the functional strength and flexibility of PiYo that will leave you with a rock-hard killer body.
Luckily, Beachbody has also provided us with a PiYo and P90X3 hybrid schedule! While I have not personally done the workouts from P90X3, the workouts look much better than the original P90X. Here is the link for the PiYO and P90X3 hybrid schedule on Team Beachbody.
What to expect? Get ready for some classic strength training from Tony in half the time with the functional, no weight pilates and yoga-based PiYO to give you a slimmer, sexy body.
PiYo and Running Hybrid Schedule
Many moons ago, I tried to train so I could run a 5k charity race. While I actually have yet to complete a 5k, my goal is run for pancreatic cancer this spring. This PiYo and running hybrid schedule is very similar to my popular T25 and running program that incorporates the very effective couch-to-5k running program.
If you try this schedule, please let me know how it goes, because I plan to start it once the trails around my house clear of snow.
What to expect? A killer body sans weights. You’ll get the muscle toning, flexibility, endurance and strength from PiYo with the slimming, leg-toning runs for a more athletic appearance and pristine endurance. If you want to feel more athletic, then this is definitely the program for you.
Let me know if there is another program you would like to see PiYo combined with in the comments section below, and I will try my best to create a new and effective hybrid schedule.
