P90X and Insanity Hybrid Fitness Program

I have been doing the Insanity  60-day fitness program for almost a full month now and I love it!

I also love P90X and am a 2-time P90X grad!!

As I neared completion of Insanity, I thought about which fitness program to do next – “Why not combine P90X and Insanity!”

That alone was all the motivation I needed to start planning my P90X – Insanity hybrid fitness program.  Planning a hybrid Insanity and P90X program  takes time and careful thought.  The basis of my idea is to do the weight training of P90X, and on cardio days, do Insanity.  That’s as far as I’ve taken the idea to this point, but count on future posts which elaborate on the hybrid workout idea as it continues to develop.

You can implement a hybrid workout into your fitness routine too! If you are using a Beachbody program such as Chalean Extreme or 10 Minute Trainer, and you’re ready to move on, why not create your own custom workout using the two programs and maximize the return on your investment?  Your body will thank you for it!

Whether you have a program you adhere to or not, you can join Team Beachbody for free and take advantage of online fitness tools and community support.

Insanity Plyometric Cardio Circuit Review

Plyometric Cardio CircuitPlyometric Cardio Circuit is one of 10 DVDs that come with Insanity by Shaun T, the 60-day total body conditioning fitness program. In 40 minutes, the Insanity plyometric workout will have you burning fat with intervals of intense lower-body plyometrics and sweat-inducing cardio!

Each Insanity workout begins with a warm-up.  Wow!  The Plyometric Cardio Circuit warm-up alone could be a complete exercise routine for most people!  Shaun T starts you off with jogging, running, jumping jacks, power jumps, and other exercises to  get your heart rate up.

You do the Insanity Plyometric Cardio Circuit warm-up 3 times, going faster each time! Next is some well-deserved light stretching. If the stretching is not enough for you, you can always stretch on your own prior to the workout.

Shaun recommends a heart rate monitor for all Insanity workouts, including the plyometrics workout. Monitoring your heart rate is the easiest wayan easy to keep yourself working out in the right “zone”. It helps you reduce your chance of injury or overtraining and also help you get the results you want.

The Insanity Plyometric Cardio Circuit workout will have you burning calories like nobody’s business!  Shaun T pushes you to new levels of fitness by having you run, jump, and dig deeper than you ever have in your life. You also be doing exercises like deep squat jumps, mountain climbers, and ski jumps.  The mountain climbers are different than the ones in high school – with these, you’re standing up and alternating pulling your arms down while running, basically.  With the ski jump exercises, you mimic a downhill skiing motion while jumping from side to side.

The best part of all is that this program requires absolutely no workout equipment like resistance bands or dumbbells!

Are you ready to take the Insanity challenge?

I first tried the Greenberry as I was feeling adventurous; the green on the package made me skeptical of how it’s going to taste, but hey, it’s green, it must be good for you… I added the water, a little OJ, blended it up, and was pleasantly surprised. It was sweet, but not too sweet, since it’s sweetened with fructose (a natural sugar found in fruit and some vegetables) I don’t have to worry about my sugar level spiking because of the low Glycemic index. Another thing I was surprised at was it really did curb my hunger, too, which I was also skeptical about, so it ended up replacing my dinner for that night.

Though Shakeology is a meal replacement, it not recommended that you replace more than 2 meals a day. it is still important that you continue following your p90x nutrition plan and consume regular healthy meals. You should still always eat your veggies daily, as nothing compares to getting nutrients from whole fresh fruits and vegetables. Not wanting to munch on carrots or celery? Skip the cravings for a mocha, cookie, or soda, treat yourself to a shake, as Shakeology is definitely the best second option!

I usually have my Shakeology at 3pm, it gives me the energy and fills my body with the nutrients, so I’m more than ready by the time I hit the gym or my P90X after work.
