Hey coach Wayne, what would better for lose body fat and retain functional strength, a straight up Insanity Max 30 round or a P90X3/Max 30 Hybrid?
@coachjavyperez I would go X3/Max30. Definitely more lifting and easier to maintain strength.
I've been trying to put together a hybrid schedule with the goals of trying to lose weight/ drop my BF%. I would generally like to maintain my strength, but just tone up. I have P90x, Insanity, Insanity Asylum, X3, Body Beast, and Max: 30 (if that helps). Any suggestions?
@CoachWayne Awesome, thank you! I love the Max30/Beast hybrid, but want a 90 day routine. Do you think it will be okay to add that last month of the beast cardio hybrid to the Max30/Beast schedule? Or should I take a different route for training block 3?
Hey coach Wayne
I'm currently on second week of p90x/asylum hybrid . I'm a little stuck on the nutrition . I am 5'7 about 159 . I want to lose last bit of belly fat and was wondering what calorie level would be sufficient since your mixing both intense workout . I'm currently on fat shredder at 1800. Also at what point do u switch yor Macros out of fat shredder .. Thanks again
@DavidRiesco That would be a great place to be. Definitely a safe deficit to protect muscle too. You could go to 1600 if you want to speed it up. I always say to think about changing when you are within 1-2% of your BF or really start bonking in your workouts.
I think that the weight training from P90x (chest & back, legs, shoulders, arms) and the cardio of p90x3 (total synergistics, CVX) would be a great hybrid. What's your opinion coach?
@gmurphy I think that would work great! Even throw in the Challenge during a phase for Chest and Back work.
Coach...I was considering doing your round 5 hybrid but I noticed it has quite a few of the one on one dvd's. Having already done p90x 2 it seems a lot of the moves were derived from the one on one dvds. That being said since I can already incorporate the X2 dvd's ...is it worth it to buy them? or is there a different hybrid I should consider?
@jay2003 You could definitely sub in a lot from X2: PAP, CBB, X2 Shoulders/Arms, etc. So, I think it could be done. I do think 30-15, Diamond Delts, and Just Arms are really worth it for 1-on-1s. If you were drawn to this one, I would say go for it! It's a great hybrid.
Hi and hope you are doing well. I'm about to start p90x2 (nighttime workouts) and have a basketball game every Wednesday night. I was hoping to not substitute for plyocide, do you have any suggestions on what to drop instead?
Thanks and God bless.
@Salute7 That is a tough one. I think I might just keep it all and play it by ear. If you feel like you need some extra rest, drop one. But I think you can do both if it is just one game a week.
@Imtryingto I don't sorry! Thinking about an easy swap would be using the Challenge for Chest and Back, Trio for Plyo, X3 Yoga for YogaX and MMX for Kenpo. It would be hard to modify phase 2 without fully reworking it.
I broke my leg end of march and I'm slowly getting back into it. Just felt that some days of only 30mins would be nice. Esp with two kids. Thx for replying.
@dkahney319 I don't, sorry!
I completed P90X Last year with really good results. unfortunately I took time off after and gained weight and body fat.
I have started p90X about 4 times in the last few months but lasted a week and stopped each time. I started 3 weeks ago again and only missed 2 days been hitting it hard. My nutrition has been 50/50 but i went foodshopping yesterday and will start dialing it in 100%.
I am 5'5 weigh about 140-145, I am not sure what my body fat is but i am not close to were i want o be.
I want to be very lean with muscle on also. I am going to go with a 1640 calorie count at 50/30/20 ratio.
I have P90X and Insanity. I was thinking about a hybrid to keep me lean, keep up my cardio, get vascular and also I find Insanity fun. Tomorrow I start with my nutrition and start a program so tell me what you think about everything, and all suggestions are welcomed. here is my schedule I came up with. I started the first training block as a second month routine considering i just almost finished 3 weeks of p90x and also did a few weeks here and there.
Block 1(for 3 weeks)
Back, Bis, abs
max interval circuit (insanity)
Chest shoulder tris abs
back, legs, abs
stretch or rest
Then Recovery week
Block 2 (for 3 weeks)
Chest back abs
Max plyo (insanity)
Shoulders arms and abs
legs back abs
max cardio (insanity)
for block 3 alternate the first week of block 1 and block 2 every week.
@RichieSt Sounds like a great plan man! Stick with that nutrition 100% of the time. No cheating. That will give you the results you want. BRING IT!!!
Will do ! Thanks also will not doing yoga every week take away from my ab definition that I am aiming for by substituting it with pure cardio and the max cardio in training block 2
@Josh For sure! Those would work well together. I haven't made one yet, but it would be a good combo. Just watch what muscle groups you work and get them enough rest. Let me know what you come up with!
@Justin No idea about deer antler spray... I know that it sounds so gimmicky to me LOL
Not sure on a hybrid yet either. I think Beast and X3 would pair well though. I will have to see :-)
Been reading for years now. Question... I see all this talk on Facebook about deer antler spray. What are your thoughts there?
Also, any plans to do a hybrid with body beast and p90x3?
Hi Coach, pls does the 8 to 10 rule in p90x include pushups? and also what other workouts (without weights) has the 8 to 10 or 12-15 rule?
@Kwabs If you can get your reps down that low, to where you are failing, that would be great. For most people, that would take a fair amount of added weight.
I've completed your p90x/insanity hybrid and really liked it, however now want to add in the brazilian butt workouts. Do you have a plan/calendar including all 3?
@AJA85 Unfortunately no. I just used it as I listed in my hybrid. Sorry!
I had really good results from P90X. I did Insanity but lost to much weight from it. I want to do a p90x/Hybrid workout, do you think this is a good combo. Not a big fan of the yoga,(like you lol) I bulk up quick so i would like to stay lean while building muscle. Whats is your opinion on the hybrid. Did you like the hybrid results better then just p90x.
I am going to do p90x 3 when it comes out, I just am looking for a good mix of p90x/insanity that will give me great results, more then just p90x.
@RichieSt I really liked my P90X/Insanity hybrid. I think that is a great call for your goals. Use mine or there are some online and even on TeamBeachbody.com.
@dkahney319 Definitely! Thanks for the reminder. I had been meaning to do that. Look for it later in the day.
Hey Coach, I have a question about the Insanity upper body weight training. I have difficulties keeping up with the video. I thought it would be best if I do the exact same exercises but not follow the video. I also want to write down my weights/ reps for these exercises. The only time I want to follow the video is during the stretch, but I want to workout on my own pace. It's still going to be a fast pace workout but not as fast as the video. You think that'll be ok?
@AliKhaleghi It is will be ok but I would strive to keep up. Push yourself. Keep working at keeping pace. Even write down your weights less frequently to keep up more.
Hey Coach Wayne, I'm currently doing p90x/insanity hybrid at the moment. I want to alter the workouts in the recovery week. the schedule will look like this: (Day 1) p90x2 yoga , (Day 2) cardio power and resistance, (Day 3) cardio recovery, (Day 4) pure cardio, (Day 5) plyo cardio circuit, (Day 6) p90x2 yoga, (Day 7) Off. Will that be ok?
@AliKhaleghi Sounds fine man. Nice recovery week.
Do you think its ok to skip the recovery weeks and go straight into the next phase's of P90X.??
Any plus's or minus's??
@carlos I would not skip recovery weeks. You still will be working hard but it gives your body the opportunity to recover and be primed for the next phase. It also forces you to focus on flexibility which is a weak point for most people.
