P90X/P90X2/Insanity hybrid

Sunday, February 26, 2012

I've been trying to find a really good hybrid for later this year. After attempting X2 I learned that I need to start over at the beginning and build up to that. But that's ok...I still think it's an awesome program but it wasn't giving me the strength work I needed. So I switched back to Chalean Extreme. THEN I heard about the Jillian Michaels workout Body Revolution and I had to get that! I love Jillian and so that was when I decided to rotate Jillian and Chalean! It made perfect sense to me. And so by the time I'm done w/ those I should be leaner/tigher/more toned and hopefully weigh a bit less also :)

But then I will want to step it up to the more extreme programs..p90x/x2/insanity are the best programs I could think of for that task. So I took it upon myself to make a hybrid of the 3 because p90x is missing cardio, insanity is missing strength and x2 is great for finishing touches but only has real strength training for 4 weeks.

Soooo here it is. Feel free to use it if you wish or make changes if you want! (So there is no confusion if it's a P90X workout or P90X2 workout I'm just going to use "x" and "x2". And it's a p90x workout unless noted that's it's from x2

And conveniently enough the last rest week is going to be our honeymoon week. I planned it that way! Then I will finish up the rest of the year with the last 8 weeks of my chalean extreme/turbo fire hybrid.

I know there is more x2 than anything in the last 4 weeks but I figure with the first 10 weeks there was alot of cardio and strength.

The other thing I thought of doing was having all the strength from p90x in the first 4 weeks and all the strength from p90x2 in the second month. But I like having the same workouts from the 2 different programs intermingled. There will be no boredom in this program!

Ok it's time for me to go to bed. Have a great week!

    Looks great! You have an awesome plan right there! I looked into P90x2 but it looks like it requires so many equipment plus it looks really advanced. I'm going to complete body revolution (mixed with other workouts) then do a Chalean xtreme round (w/ other workouts). After that I'm going to create another schedule with a mixture of my other DVDs (I have soooo many!). I have to keep changing it up so that I don't get bored and stop working out. Once I lose momentum it takes me a while to get back on the workout mood again. Good luck with your plan and keep posting! Looking forward to seeing your progress throughout your rotations! :D
