The One System and Program You Need to Transform Your Body

Our workout program is available only to customers. We noticed “competitors” were copying the X3 12-week program and nutrition guide and using them, word for word, as accompanying documentation for their low-quality products.

We have heard hundreds of stories about people buying cheap resistance band bars or resistance band packages and performing X3 Bar workouts with them, only to injure themselves (sometimes seriously).

To enjoy the benefits tens of thousands of people have experienced with X3, you must use the right equipment. X3 is the product of years of research, testing, and development.

Intro and Best Practices

Weights overload joints and underload muscle. In our program intro video, Dr. Jaquish explains why weightlifting is a terrible stimulus for muscle growth and poses a more effective and sustainable way to burn fat, build muscle, and optimize hormones. That way is variable resistance.

Throughout the program, Dr. Jaquish explains how the X3 System works and walks through studied and proven principles that will transform your physique. Plus, he offers valuable nutrition insights to help you on your journey.

X3 12-Week Program Roadmap

In our program roadmap, we review a few factors that are critical to your success with X3 at each stage of the journey. The program is broken up into two parts: Week 1–4 and Week 5–12.

Our program follows a classic push-pull split. This allows for optimal muscle growth and recovery.

Push Day

On the X3 Push Day you’ll perform the chest press, tricep press, overhead press, and front squat.

    Rest Day

Before you start, you will learn a few foundational principles of X3. This includes variable resistance, number of repetitions, and number of sets. Your first four weeks will include four days of activity and three days of rest.

This will help your body acclimate to a new stimulus and new training method that requires you to take the muscles to complete fatigue (something that is virtually impossible with weights).

Starting with week five, you will transition to working out six times a week. Your body should be ready for this level of activity after four weeks of X3 workouts. In weeks 5–8, you will focus on three key principles: constant tension, diminishing range, and complete fatigue.

By applying these critical principles, you will take your workouts—and muscle gains—to a whole new level. As you progress, you can replace standard squats with split squats, which isolate one leg at a time for maximum fatigue and growth. We recommend adding in the pec crossover as well. This will help build up the pectoral muscles.

Variations

As you progress into Week 5, your may begin incorporating these two movements in your Push Day workouts.

Pec Crossover Pec Crossover
Split Squat Split Squat

After completing week 8 of the program, you will learn about breath control and the power of the stabilization firing.
