P90X and Insanity have just been added to our product line-up, and we have more BeachBody products coming soon. P90X and Insanity are some extremely intense home exercise programs. I should know – I’ve done them both (actually, just about to finish up the Insanity program this week).
They are tough, but if you really want results you’ve got to work at it. I struggled a lot through both of the programs. With Insanity, even after 2 months, the warmup still feels like a pretty good workout, and I am absolutely wiped out and sweating like a horse after the complete workout. And while I can’t speak for everyone, I’ve have been extremely pleased with my results on these 2 programs.
P90X is geared more toward building strength, while Insanity is to build cardio endurance and help you tone. I didn’t stick to the diet very well (the programs come with a very detailed diet plan in addition to the exercise), or I would probably have had phenominal results, but here’s what I did experience:
- Lost 20lbs
- Went from a size 40 waist to a 36
- Went from doing 2 pullups to 15 (plus more curls, pushup, situps, increased resistance, etc)
- More definition in chest, biceps, triceps
- Better abs (still have a little bulge to get rid of right in the middle, but I can see abs and obliques now with some definition)
I did lay off the soft drinks quite a bit – still have 1 or 2 a week, so I am sure that helped as well.
Both P90X and Insanity are great programs, but you really do have to be determined and committed to get through them. I’ll wrap up Insanity in a few days, take a little break for the Holidays, and get started again in the New Year.
