Insanity P90X Hybrid Workout Schedule


This is my review on the P90X/Insanity Hybrid Workout Routine. I decided to do this cross combo main because doing Insanity straight for 60 days took a big time toll on my lower back. So by combining the strength and cardio of both programs I actually saw much better results than P90X alone.

My before and after picture below was directly taken after a few hybrids of P90X and Insanity. I felt that the combination of cardio and weight training help me drop that extra body fat. I have left my version of the schedule below so that you can copy and paste and use for yourself.

Not all the time did I do the ARX. I substituted many different things in for all of the abs. I loved this hybrid because it brought great balance to my workouts. Not just all cardio and not just all weights.


The biggest thing to realize to was I changed my diet tremendously during this time. I cut out all the sweets and beer and really stuck to a lean healthy diet. I drank Shakeology every day and took my Results and Recovery when I needed it.  I am one that feels you don’t need results and recovery every day. I only took mine after intense workouts and never after yoga.


If you are interested in what Shakeology is please follow this link here. I can honestly say with the combination of the  P90X/Insanity Hybrid Workout
schedule above, my diet, and Shakeology, that is where the results came!

    Hey nick, your results are incredible! But did follow the p90x or insanity diet? Or did you just take from both. Any tips on hybrid nutrition for cutting?

      I sort of followed my own guide. I pulled things from the P90X guide. I tried to stay away from carbs after 5 pm. The biggest thing was cutting out beer, and other junk. I ate zero junk food during that hybrid. Does that help a little?

    Yea it’s pretty helpful. But you completely steared away from the insanity nutrition even on the insanity days? And what if I use the insanity diet on insanity workouts and p90x diet on the p90 days? The diet part is the most confusing part of making a hybrid; I find. Any other tips/info would be great if you have.

      I would just stay with one. By switching back and forth your going to confuse yourself and not likely to stick with it. Both programs are similar as far as concept for your nutrition. Since P90X is more in depth I would stick with that. When I did the hybrid I ate mostly protein like eggs, shakes, veggy burgers, chicken etc. I’m a big fan of morning star garden veggy burgers. I also did a lot of Shakeology too. So I wasn’t staying with the guide but listening to my body and just stayed away from junk and alcohol.

        I see. And last question, I promise, for the p90x nutrition guide, how would you calculate your needs according to your goal. For example, if you’re trying to cut do you subtract 500 cals from your energy needs and vice-versa for adding mass, or is it already calculated for one of the two already? It doesn’t add in the cutting calculation like the insanity nutrition guide does.

          Chris ask all the questions you want. I would say try cutting out the 500 calories at first and see how your body responds. Listen to your body during. However, for hard cardio days you might be able to get away with a few more calories during those days. Play with it – I know this isn’t a specific answer but I don’t know your metabolism.

            Well I just turned 20 and work out 6 days a week, plus used to play multiple sports, so my metabolism is pretty fast. Also, if was to follow the p90x diet throughout the hybrid, is phase1 or phase2 of the diet better for fat shredding, or because i’m doing insanity 3x a week is it better to do phase 2. Also, why didn’t you follow the insanity diet? Thanks again Nick for helping me out.

            I didn’t follow the Insanity diet because I was just use to the P90X one. It was more preference than anything. Plus I don’t eat dairy so I always am modifying things anyway. I would say you should try to do phase one for about 30 days and see how your energy levels are. If they get low (which I bet they will) phase two is where you want to stay.

            I played around a lot with diet when I did it. What I found is that when I cut out a lot of carbs after say 5 pm I really saw great results. I ate a lot of chicken and veggies or salmon and veggies for my dinners. Pretty boring.
