    Tried the search function but didn't find anything.

    Has anyone tried this hybrid routine? I've been thinking about mixing my P90X routines along with Insanity since I am almost on the 2nd month of the program, just to get more results. Curious if anyone has any recommendations on which set has worked for them. icon_biggrin.gif

    P90X is an incredibly tough program. I'm on month 2 myself. Phases 1 and 2 are where you get accustomed to the moves and reps. Phase 3 is where the magic happens. I recommend going through the entire program a second time after you've completed it the first go-round since you'll be more familiar with it and you'll be able to perform it that much better.

    How about doing Double P90X? I looked at that schedule and just about balked.

    It's this crazy ridiculous program that's almost twice as hard, if not more than P90X. Very eponymous, really.

    I tried it and cried. Quite literally, cried. My friend tried it (and he's incredibly fit) and he couldn't even keep up.

    Insanity is insane.

    I love P90X. I mix it with MMA, and conditioning training too.

    I mix mine with my personal trainer and his ridiculous beach-based workouts.

    I love that, we run on the beach as well, but we have to carry someone on our back, or wear weights lol.

    The two minutes in heaven though sucks lmao

    It purely depends on what results you want.

    P90x leads one way
    Insanity leads another.

    Mixing might disappoint you (and yes I do mix).

    P90x doubles is a fucking bitch.

    I did Doubles last year it really helps with the body fat but it is a bitch and you have to really watch the possibility of overtraining. I started losing some of my earlier gains because I wasnt eating enough.

    There is this guy who created a whole sample p90x/insanity hybrid program:

    http://betterbody90.com/now-available-new-hybrid-workout-schedule/

    He is kind of a tool but he seems sweet. Anyhow, this program is pretty good. I was doing it for a few weeks when I got bored of p90x but now i am getting into muay thai and jujitsu.

    "SHAWN T!"

    OMG that dude is a RAAAAAAGING tool (and far from an expert in Fitness). Tony is a great guy. I have met him a couple times at fitness conferences. He actually dated a fellow co-worker of mine but she broke his heart (which is ok since I think Tony has total gay face).

    I am 100% against his removal of legs and back day in P90x. His logic isn't sound. Insanity, as a lower body workout, is purely catabolic while P90x is around muscle tone. The d-bag says that there aren't any weighted exercises but Tony explicit-ly says, "Use weights when you want"

    Sorry, I just explode when I see jerk-offs thinking they know shit about copying P90 or Insanity.

    I am a Beachbody coach and have clients who have had "INSANE" results using Insanity with P90X. Insanity takes cardio to the next level. If anyone would like a discount on any Beachbody products, let me know.
