With X3, you train with greater force to trigger Greater Gains
Why Is X3 More Powerful Than Weights?
You are cutting your gains short. Static weights overload the joints and underload the muscle. Your body is 7 times stronger at full extension in the impact-ready positions than in the joint-compromised starting positions. The X3 provides greatly varied resistance through each movement, enabling you to recruit more muscle, produce higher HGH levels, and drive Greater Gains.
Maximize Muscle Fatigue and Growth
X3 is the strongest variable resistance training system on the market. Because your body is weaker in starting positions, lighter forces are required at the beginning of the movement, where weightlifting injuries often occur.
With X3, the weight increases as you move from the weak range (near the chest) to the strong range (near full extension), where you are capable of producing 7x more force.
This allows you to safely train with greater force than you would with weights, triggering greater muscular growth.
All It Takes Is One Set
By providing heavier loads near full extension, the larger muscles groups become completely exhausted in one set. Follow the X3 Program and discover how strong you can be, in just 10 minutes a day.

About the Inventor
John Jaquish, PhD, is a Wall Street Journal Best Selling author of Weightlifting Is a Waste of Time and inventor of OsteoStrong, a bone density building medical device that has reversed osteoporosis for thousands and created more powerful, fracture-resistant athletes across 300 clinics worldwide.
While researching bone density, Dr. Jaquish quantified the variance in power capacities from weak to strong ranges, which led to his second invention, X3. Research indicates X3 builds muscle much faster than conventional lifting in far less time and with the lowest risk of joint injury.
Dr. Jaquish has been featured on many top health podcasts and speaks at scientific conferences all over the world. He is a research professor at Rushmore University and a nominee for the National Medal of Science.
X3 Bar Elite 12-Week Program
Watch this intro to learn X3 best practices
After this intro, follow the workout schedule in the table below that corresponds to your current program week and the nutrition video for the week.
For example, if you are in the second week of the program, follow the schedule on the table below titled "Weeks 1–4."
Before you get started, let's review a few important things for weeks 1–4: variable resistance, number of repetitions, and number of sets.
After completing Week 4, watch to learn the X3 workout principles we emphasize during weeks 5–8: constant tension, diminishing range of motion, and fatiguing your muscles.
After completing Week 8, watch to learn what workout principles we emphasize during weeks 9–12: breath control, doing split squats, and stabilization firing.
X3 Workout Frequently Asked Questions

X3 Bar Elite FAQ
Why is X3 more effective than free weights like dumbbells or barbells?
Free weights give you a constant resistance. For example, if you do a bicep curl with 25 pound dumbbells, the resistance is 25 pounds when you start the exercise and 25 pounds when you finish the exercise. It is constant. It does not vary. X3 uses variable resistance training, which effectively lowers the resistance during the lifter’s weakest range of the lift and increases it during the stronger portion. As a result, you put less stress on your joints where you are weaker and more stress at points in the range of motion where you are strongest. With X3's variable resistance exercises you maximize the force being applied to the muscle, which builds greater muscular activity.
What’s the difference between the X3's heavy resistance bands and other resistance bands?
Quite simply, most resistance bands cannot handle a heavy amount of force. 99% of bands out there, even resistance bands for pull up bars, are made from a petroleum-based material. This is a weak material and the bands will snap when enough force is applied to it. The variable resistance bands that come with X3 are made of layered latex, which is extremely powerful and far more powerful than most bands out there. X3's heavy duty resistance bands are designed to handle over 600 pounds of force when used safely with include X3 resistance band bar and resistance band groundplate.
Why do I need the X3 resistance band bar and not just the resistance bands?
X3's heavy resistance bands can produce forces exceeding 600 pounds. Using heavy resistance bands without a heavy duty resistance band bar like the X3 bar can damage your wrists and ankles. You won’t be able to fully perform the movement with the proper range of motion as your joints cannot handle these forces without protection. That’s why X3 comes with a specially machined alloy steel resistance band bar with internal bearings, like an Olympic bar, so that grip is always optimized to support the heavy loads. Standard resistance bands with handles can't handle the necessary forces required for muscle grown and often don't provide adequate wrist protection.
What does the X3 ground plate do?
The heavy-duty steel X3 ground plate is used for heavy resistance band exercises that require an anchor point for the resistance bands, such as resistance band bar squats or as a resistance band curl bar. The X3 ground plate gives you a wider base to loop the bands under so that the bands are pulling up directly against your feet for proper support. Made from solid steel, it provides a strong resistance band platform for full body exercises.
What types of exercises can I do with X3?
X3 Bar is a full body variable resistance training system. This Upon purchasing X3, you will get the included X3 12-week workout plan. There are many resistance band bar exercises you can do with the X3 Bar and they consist of the most effective strength training exercises, such as squats, chest press, bicep curls, and deadlifts.
How many repetitions should I do per set with the X3?
The recommended rep range is 15-40 full repetitions. For example, when you get started, you may only be able to do 15 complete repetitions of the chest press with a particular band, but you will need to keep working with that band for that same exercise until you have worked up to do 40 full reps. At that point, you will need to move up to the next band. If you are unable to do 15 full reps with a band, you will want to move down to a lighter band and work towards 40 with it first. The partial reps are important, but don't count towards the 15-40 reps.
How many sets do I need to do with the X3?
X3 takes you to a much deeper level of fatigue since you are training all the ranges of motion. You will maximize the force being applied to the muscle, which builds greater muscular activity. Therefore, one set is all you need per exercise.
