My recommendation would be to do your favourite workouts on your days off. Then on work days try to do 15 minutes of gentler exercise, maybe go for a short walk on your break, or try some bodyweight exercises such as squats, push ups and lunges. Or even just some light stretching.
As said below, you don't need a program you just need to allocate the time in your diary and make it happen.
The DVD programs such as p90x are designed for people to do at home without any prior workout experience, so you should be able to follow these 2 or 3 days in a row followed by a couple of days lighter exercise without any problem at all.
It really isn't more complicated than that. If you're not able to do even a walk on work days, then just work out on your days off. It's better than nothing.
On the days you DO work out, include some ST and some cardio. Switch up which comes first - maybe alternate. While some of your DVDs may say they're a daily plan, skip it and do it when you can. It won't matter.
Exercise has so little an effect on your goals you only need worry that you're getting "some exercise", not so much the quality and duration. If you are afraid it will affect your diet goals, look at food, not exercise. That has a much more significant effect on your success.

I was wondering if there was any teambeachbody coaches here or someone who is good at making hybrid workout schedules. I have almost all the workouts including p90x one and two, insanity, asylum one and two, tapout etc. I seen some online but I really need one unique to my schedule because my work schedule is hectic. I work two get two off work three get two off work two get three off then it all repeats. Its a weird schedule but I only want to work out on my days off so my workouts need to be harder. If there is someone who thinks they can help me please let me know.
