Beachbody and Chalene Johnson’s PiYo workout schedule comes complete with a wall calendar. If I had a room dedicated to just working out, this would be perfect to hang on the wall. However…not quite there yet. :(
If your workout calendar came in the mail or you have access to Beachbody On Demand the first thing you’ll probably notice is a pink side and blue side.
The pink PiYo calendar is the schedule for the basic version of the program. This is the side that you will want to follow if you are not going to be using the PiYo Strength slides(more advanced).
There are Two Workout Schedules to Choose From
PiYo Base and PiYo Strength
- PiYo Base – This is the workout schedule for the basic PiYo at-home workout program. You will be using these workouts:
- Align: The Fundamentals(40 min.)
- Define: Lower Body (20 min.)
- Define: Upper Body (20 min.)
- Sweat (35 min.)
- Core (30 min.)
- Strength Intervals (25 min.)
- Drench (45 min.)
- Sculpt (30 min.)
- Buns (25 min.)
- PiYo Strength – This workout calendar includes the above workouts, plus two accelerated workouts: Full Body Blast and Strong Legs, which you will need the strength slides for.
The PiYo Base Workout Calendar
The PiYo Basic workout calendar starts on a Monday, but you can choose any day of the week to begin, just be sure to follow the workout schedule in order with the fifth day being an off day.
First Day: The program starts with Align: The Fundamentals(you do this workout once) Then a lower body workout on Tuesday, followed by an upper body workout on Wednesday, then Sweat a cardio paced workout on Thursday. day 5(Friday, woohoo!) is a rest day, then you go back to the lower and upper workouts to finish off the week.
Week 4 note: Week 4 is when the PiYo workout schedule really picks up. If you found the first week to easy, you can move here. If you find this week to hard, it might be worth repeating weeks 1 through 3.
This cycle basically repeats itself with a Core workout thrown in here and there until week 4 of the program. Drench, Sculpt and Buns are introduced this week.
The PiYO basic calendar has a great design, You are alternating between different areas of the body on alternating days with cardio and core workouts mixed between. This allows you to better recover before working the same area again.
The PiYo Strength Workout Calendar
The blue side! If you want to step up your PiYo workouts then we have the PiYo Strength schedule.
