Which gives better results? Which is harder to do?
bravehound saidHoly crap. After reading this post, I was curious and downloaded the beginning of the Insanity program. I agree... the fitness test that you do before starting the program was rough... finished it, but I was beaten up - and I do regular speed running interval training as part of my normal routine.
Based on that alone, I think it's safe to say Insanity will offer all sorts of full body conditioning with cardio and core expectations along the line of "sink or swim"... which for some, is great motivation. I'm one of those
TattooJock saidwell i just began both at the same time actually. i do one week of p90x and one week of insanity. They both are HARD but insanity takes it to a new level! It really test your core!
The reason I am doing both at the same time is because one is with weights and one uses your natural strength and pushes it to the limit. I found that if i do one week of weights and one week without weights my body responds MUCH better because your muscles need at least 48 hours to repair.
Its just like when people say don't do biceps alot if you want them bigger. Well that goes the same for lifting weights in general. Since starting the program(s) I have lost 7 pounds and im only 3 weeks in.
