I have completed “month 1” of the Insanity Workout routine. This past weekend I had a softball tournament where I tweaked my hamstring. So I am taking this current week off to let it heal. The month 2 workouts are a little extended and last upwards of 60 minutes. For this reason I have decided not to continue into month 2. Don’t get me wrong I actually enjoy the Insanity program and Shaun T is really great. Even though I feel like I have adapted to the Insanity workout, I do not think I’m ready for month 2 and an entire hour of Insanity nonetheless. Plus, I would like to add weight training in addition to the cardio portion of a workout routine. I actually miss it.
Combining P90X and Insanity Routines Together
So for this reason I am going to combine Insanity with the P90X Workout as sort of hybrid workout. I will be doing a 6 day a week workout, 3 days of resistance and 3 days of cardio. I will use the resistance training of P90X and the cardio from Insanity. As far as the ab workouts I will use the Insanity workout cardio abs, Cardio Abs has no crunches like Ad ripper so it will create less stress on my back.
Heres the layout of workouts for my first 30 days:
Day 1 – P90X Chest & Back / Insanity Cardio Abs
Day 2 – Insanity Plyo Cardio Circuit
Day 3 – P90X Shoulders & Arms / Insanity Cardio Abs
Day 4 – Insanity Cardio Recovery
Day 5 – P90X Legs & Back / Insanity Cardio Abs
Day 6 – OFF
Day 7 – Insanity Pure Cardio
I will do this routine for the first 30 days then switch the resistance days to the phase 2 routine of P90X.
