P90X is a home fitness program which includes 12 intense workouts that employ resistance and body-weight traning, cardio, ab exercises, plyometrics, martial arts, and yoga. It also includes a nutrition plan, fitness guide, and a workout calendar. This system by BeachBody was created by fitness expert and celebrity trainer Tony Horton.
This program promises to transform your body in just 90 days. Its 12 workouts are targeted training for lean muscle development and supercharged metabolism. The comprehensive nutrition plan is divided into 3 phases where you first feed on higher-protein diet to jump start your fat loss as you start building muscles. Next phase is a combination of carbs and protein diet, and the third phase is an athletic diet with more complex carbs and lean protein for ultimate performance.
To perform the P90X workouts, you will need to use a pull-up bar and resistance bands. Even with just these simple equipment, the exercises are known to be very strenuous and challenging. Even so, many people find the program highly motivating and fun. While P90X is an intense workout that recognizes the importance of muscular strength, its goal is not particularly to bulk you up but to get you ripped, lose pounds, and get fit while building a muscular physique.
Insanity is another home fitness program from BeachBody. It is developed by fitness trainer and choreographer Shaun T. The kit includes 10 DVDs, nutrition plan, fitness guide, and a workout calendar. This program lets you perform long bursts of maximum intensity workouts with short periods of rest. It includes 10 insane workouts with resistance training for upper body, core exercises for your abs, cardio to burn fat, plyometrics for lower body, and sports drills for speed and agility.
Dubbed as ‘the hardest workout put on DVD’, this regimen which combines aerobics and anaerobics improves fitness through strenuous stamina like the P90X but is intended to be tougher than the latter as it promises to deliver results in just 60 days.
Its maximum interval training method will work you out strenuously for 3 to 4 minutes and then allow you to cool down for about 30 seconds before getting to the whole process over again. It will keep you constantly challenged and will let you burn up to 1,000 calories in an hour.
The good thing about this program is that you only need floor space to do your workout and no other equipment save of course your TV and DVD player. The workouts are designed to use your own weight as a source of resistance. It is ideal for losing fats fast and getting cardiovascularly fit.
