If you’re just about finished with your first round of P90X, you’re probably sitting there contemplating what you should do next. Some people feel they have a lot of body fat still left to lose, so they decide to do another round of P90X, which is fine, but others want more of a challenge. If you’re one of those people looking for a challenge, then you need to consider either Insanity and P90X Plus, but which one do you choose?
Insanity VS P90X Plus
P90X Plus Review: After I finished my first round of P90X, I decided that I was going to go through a round of P90X Plus. The P90X Plus is an awesome program and definitely increases the intensity! My two favorite workouts from the series are Interval X Plus and Kenpo Cardio Plus. Interval X Plus involves doing different exercises at 3 different speeds: slow, medium, and fast. There are two halves of the workout, and the second is the same as the first. By the time you finish this one, you will be winded and drenched in sweat! My other favorite from the series is Kenpo Cardio Plus, and the best way to explain this one is that it’s Kenpo X super intensified! There are no slow spots in this workout, and you might have to take a few breaks to catch your breath. The other 4 workouts focus on resistance training, but are little different than the P90X resistance workouts. These workouts are faster paced and involve a lot of lighter lifting with higher reps. After a month of doing P90X Plus, I decided that I wanted to gain more mass, so I started mixing the Plus workouts in with the P90X Classic version.
Insanity Review: As you all have seen from my recent posts, Melinda, Greg, and I have all been going through a round of Insanity for the past few weeks. Insanity is like no other program that Beachbody has to offer because of the intensity level. I thought that the P90X Plus cardio workouts were intense, but that was until I started Insanity. Insanity is more of a cardio program than anything, and the little resistance training it does provide is through body weight resistance exercises, like push-ups and squats. I love Insanity for the fact that it makes me push myself harder than I ever have before, and I really get to test my limits. There has been one time that my heart rate got up to 192, which I really didn’t think was possible! The only issue that I have with Insanity is the lack of resistance training. However, I found out that there are 2 or 3 Insanity Resistance workouts that you can purchase to incorporate in with the rest of the workouts. Whether it’s through those extra workouts or my own workouts, I’m going to make sure I get in 2 resistance workouts per week.
