P90X vs Insanity

Category : Insanity, P90X · by Apr 5th, 2012

I wanted to give you a run down on Tony Horton’s P90X vs Shaunt T’s Insanity workout. I have done both of these workouts and they are both very different, but the end result is close to the same. P90X and Insanity is for anyone that simply wants to lose weight, get muscle definition and increase in energy and stamina. P90X is a 90 day program and Insanity is a 60 day program.

Both of these come with come with a ‘Fit Test’, workout guide, meal planner and if you order through me you get FREE bonus workouts with each one, plus me as your coach!

P90X has some great cardio like workouts, like Plyometrics (jump training), Kempo X (punching & kicking) and Cardio X (is a lighter version of Plyometrics). The cardio workouts are really good workouts that you do in between the weights, pull-ups and push-ups. Yoga is an acquired taste, but it is worth it to do because it definitely helps with flexibility and control. P90X was designed to turn fat into muscle.

Your first week of P90X looks like this:

  1. Chest and Back and AbRipper X
  2. Plyometrics
  3. Shoulders and Arms and AbRipper X
  4. Yoga X
  5. Legs and Back and Abripper X
  6. Kempo
  7. Rest Day or X Stretch

With P90X there is some equipment that you need. Basically dumbbells or resistance bands and a pull-up bar. For more information see my post for P90X Equipment.

Insanity takes a different approach than P90X. There are no weights involved with Insanity. Its mostly just a fast paced high impact cardio style workout. Most all the moves are simple and easy to follow and very effective. Targeting most all the muscles in the body you can think of. This workout will also build up you lungs for those out there who like to run a lot. Theres lots of running (in place), jumping, push-ups and a great ab routine with NO sit-ups involved!

Your first week of Insanity looks like this:

  1. Rest Day
  2. Plyometric Cardio Circuit
  3. Cardio Power & Resistance
  4. Cardio Recovery
  5. Pure Cardio
  6. Plyometric Cardio Circuit
  7. Rest Day

Both P90X and Insanity are great workouts for any fitness level. Once you’ve completed one or both of these workouts, there’s a hybrid workout that combines both P90X and Insanity that is really challenging, but oh-so-worth-it! I would recommend either of these workout to anyone wanting a solid routine to follow, and wants to get in AMAZING shape!
