Have you finished the entire program already? I get a lot of emails from people who want to jump right into a hybrid program after only finishing a week or two of P90X, Insanity, or any other Beachbody program. I think people are demanding too much too soon. Just because you haven’t seen results yet does not mean they are not going to follow or that switching to something else all together will get you there.
Many of the Beachbody programs are designed so that in the first month you are building up your base level of fitness and strength. So of course you’re not going to see eye-popping results just yet. You’re working everything. Not just one area. You might feel a little stronger and even drop some weight but you have not passed the mirror test yet. This does not mean the workout is not working.
“It’s a process. It’s a process. It’s a process.” – Brad Pitt in Moneyball.
When you’re trying something new you need to see it through. Just like in the movie when they introduced a new way to approach evaluating players you need to look at finishing a workout program the same way. There are going to be bumps in the road. Especially if you’re not committing to the process or plan that was set up in the beginning. Deviate from the plan when you’re not seeing results and you’ll be back at square one. Many people don’t start seeing results until month 2 in Insanity or the beginning of month 3 with P90X. But those who do stick with it until then will be rewarded with the results they wanted.
If this is your first time doing one of those programs then stick with it. Get the absolute most that you can out of it. When you are done, then look at doing a P90X and Insanity hybrid program. But until then, stick with the process.
