Doing cardio & strength training is the most effective so you definitely shouldn't be cutting out weight training. You just have to figure out your schedule; maybe you do less compound moves while doing insanity. I think the key is whatever you decide to do be very aware if you start to feel like you're overdoing or need to modify, modify.

Hi,

I want to do Insanity, but I am worried about losing muscle if I cut out the weight training. Should I not worry about that, or is there a safe way to mix the two? If so, how? I like to do lots of compound moves for my weight training (lots of Jari Love, for example), so I can't just say do legs, and then Insanity, and then arms etc. I know there is a rotation where P90X is combined with Insanity, but I don't have that. I want to know how to incorporate weight training in general, not just a specific series of DVDs, so I can have lots of variety.
