P90X3/Insanity MAX: 30 Hybrid

P90X3 focuses on Balance component of training. Yes, there is Strength Training, but compared with the previous programs by Tony Horton (P90X/P90X2), there is less emphasis on Isolated Strength Training. It’s mainly Balance, Core, Stability and of course, Pull Ups 🙂

Insanity Max:30 is Heavy Duty Cardio, Plyometric movements and there’s emphasis on Body Weight Exercises. The Balance, Core, Stability (and the Pull Ups) are missing in this routine.

So, what is common between the two programs? Just the 30 min factor. What would be the purpose of a hybrid? The purpose would be to make a 3 phased program to focus on Balance, Strength and Application.  The recovery weeks and the recovery days are designed to compliment the purpose of the hybrid.

Phase 1: Balance and Power

Take a look at Phase 1 in the hybrid. There’s more emphasis on the Balance, Stability, Power and Core.  Each workout is chosen carefully to make the most out of this phase.
