Insanity is only 2 months. It is very cardio intensive, and I use it as a "cutting" workout. I then follow it with P90X (3 months) which is resistance training intensive, and I use it as a "bulking" workout.

Many do both workouts simultaneously. I think they are crazy! emoticon I kind of like the swap back and forth as it increases the muscle confusion.

And Insanity isn't completely devoid of upper body strength training. Level 1-3 drills are tough. I can bench 350, but it was a rare morning I could keep up on Level-3 drills.

Hi Terry,

Have you thought of doing a P90X/Insanity hybrid? Otherwise, I would add upper body workouts on mostly cardio days- not the resistance ot plyo days. When do you plan to start?

Cheers,
Christina

would like to do p90x but i work away from home and i'm gone for 3 weeks at a time.
i live in a camp when i'm at work and the gym they have is way to spread out and busy to do p90

insanity is easy to do because the cardio area has a tv and not many people use it

If you use the bands with P90x instead of the bar and dumbbells you could likely do P90x in the same area you are doing Insanity.
