Hey everyone just seeing which one you prefer?! I have P90X and if I don't make it to the gym I try and do it but I can't get really into it, so thinking about buying Insanity.


let me know what you think!

i've done both.  both make you lose weight but p90x helps you build more muscle.  if you want the most bang for your buck, i'd do p90x and kill 2 birds with one stone.

tony  horton is a little hard to take at first but you learn to tune him out and eventually, learn to tolerate him.  just concentrate on the workouts, eat right and you WILL see results.

They are completely different programs so it depends on what you want from it. 

X is a weight based program since it uses a pull up bar, 4 sets of weights and only does minimal cardio ( which I find very boring and slow personally). 

Insanity is a crazy cardio program that uses your body weight. 

You will build more lean muscle mass using P90X, but if you continue with it, I would recommend using heavier weights as it will yield better results at a higher rate. 

I'm a graduate of both programs and more and a former coach so let me know if you have questions.
