If you’ve ever tried the popular P90X or Insanity workouts, you know that you are experiencing some of the hardest workouts ever put out on video. P90X tests your physical strength to the limit, confusing muscles and giving you one of the most brutal workouts on video. Insanity aims to test your endurance by confusing your body and putting you through one of the most insane cardio workouts today. Insanity boasts quick weight loss through extended cardio intervals and shorter recovery breaks.
But guess what? They’re doing it again!
P90X:MC2 or P90neXt is set to come out in late 2011. It is another 90 day program that is said to build upon the principles and workouts done in the original P90X workouts. With all new workouts, and expanding on the theory of muscle confusion, it claims it will get you out of the plateau that you may be experiencing if you have been doing P90X for an extended period of time.
The original P90X had 12 different workouts aimed to get you fit within 90 days. Using the theory of muscle confusion, P90X helped you tone up and get ripped. The box set included 12 different workouts, a 90 day fitness plan, and a 3 phase nutrition plan. No information is available on whether or not the new P90X workout will include any of these additional features. Shooting has not begun, but several of the other BeachBody trainers who have done live workouts with Tony Horton of P90X speculate that there may be yoga involved. P90X style yoga. Trainers like Kim McAuliffe said, “Tony did a combined live workout with the other trainers (Chalene, Shaun T, etc) and his Saturday workout was yoga. Not like the yoga we’ve done with P90X or One on One- he had us holding poses for a long time, lots of planks and balances- loved it. If it’s any indication of what we’re in for with the next step of P90X, I’m in!” (BeachBody,7/2010)
The new Insanity Asylum promises big results and also aims to avoid cardio plateau. The workouts will be a lot like Tony Horton’s One-on-One series. A new workout will be sent out each month that allows you to work side by side with Insanity fitness instructor Shaun T. Shaun T himself has promised a bigger, crazier workout that will force you to dig deeper. He also also said that Asylum will have the same format as the original Insanity workouts.
The release date for the new Insanity Asylum is set for sometime in late 2010.
