P90X3/Insanity MAX:30 Hybrid
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.
Phase 2: Strength and Core
Let’s take a look at Phase 2. More emphasis on Strength Training, with some balance component and moving higher on the cardio side (by utilizing Max Out cardio from Phase 2).
Phase 3: Performance and Application
No explanation needed.

What kind of meal plan would you recommend to go along with this plan? A heavier calorie set of the Nutrition containers of the MAX 30 or the P90 X3 nutrition?
@Issa Chmaitelli Good question. Frankly both are 3 minute workout routines and the nutrition plan for both is not very different, macro-wise and calorie-wise. You could stick with either, but I do prefer P90X3 nutrition plan for this hybrid because of the recipes, the variety in the meals, recipes, etc. versus Max30 which is a much more quick overview of nutrition.
