Who is it for?
22 Minute Hard Corps is an intermediate-level program without overly complex moves. This would be a good graduate program from P90® or 21 Day Fix® and is for busy individuals who are looking for a quick but effective workout.
Can you get an effective workout in 22 minutes?
Yes, the program uses a military-style cadence to move from sequence to sequence, and the fast pace will help your calorie burn.
What equipment does it require?
The only equipment 22 Minute Hard Corps requires is a set of weights and a pull-up bar (or substitute a resistance band with a door attachment). A jump mat is also recommended, and the Beachbody® PT Sandbag can be substituted for your dumbbells for added intensity.
Is it a cardio or weight training program?
It’s a balanced program, alternating between cardio and resistance days. Each routine is a total-body workout that will challenge multiple muscle groups over the course of 22 minutes. 22 Minute Hard Corps is a comprehensive, boot camp-style fitness program that will help you get in shape if you follow the exercise and nutrition guidelines.
Will I get results if I follow the modifier?
Everyone should go at their own pace. As long as you’re pushing your body daily and eating well, results will happen. You should follow the modifier until you can do the regular moves with good form. If you’re concerned about your form or it breaks down, you can always go back to the modifier.
Should I do more than one round?
You can do as many as you like. Although keep in mind that as you get fitter, you need to push yourself harder. Basically, as long as you like your results, you can keep going.
What is the difference between 22 Minute Hard Corps and P90X®/P90X3®?
P90X and P90X3 are 90-day extreme fitness programs. Both programs provide an extensive variety of fat-burning, muscle-perfecting moves that continually challenge the body and are considered advanced workouts.
22 Minute Hard Corps is a shorter, intermediate-level program that has total-body routines to improve overall fitness. It is inspired by the tried-and-true methods of boot camp fitness programs and uses a military-style cadence to provide an intense workout in only 22 minutes.
I missed a week due to vacation/work travel/sickness. Where do I start from today?
Missing a few days is no big deal. Just jump back in to your program where you left off. After about five or six days off or more, start slow on your first day back to avoid injury, maybe doing a third to a half of your normal workout, and ramp up little by little, taking about a week to get back to where you left off.
How can I use portion-control containers with 22 Minute Hard Corps?
The containers are meant to be used with the Rations for Results Nutrition Field Guide that comes with the base kit. They are easy to use and will help you get the best results by controlling your portion sizes.
What’s the perfect next step?
This depends on your goals. The P90X series (P90X/P90X2®/P90X3) are natural extensions. We recommend that you take a short break before starting another high intensity program.
