War of the instructional DVDs.

Lol I read it but I wish they would've picked a winner

The truth is they all work. You have to stick with whatever you are using.

The sad part is people want to pick something that requires little or no effort and get unrealistic results.

I agree, to many fad diets out there right now.

I'm a fan of all three. Great programs with different modalities to fitness.
I'm doing a P90X2/Asylum Hybrid with Muay Thai and BJJ slowly right now. I can't wait for Asylum volume 2! :biggrin:

Insanity: The Asylum is the sequel to Insanity. To me it's a much more balanced, functional approach, but it requires equipment (Jump Rope, Agility ladder, Weights/Resistance Band/Pullup bar). Plus it's only 30 days. I still like Insanity, but I prefer Asylum.

(Original Insanity)

(Asylum)

Sounds like Insanity grabbed some stuff from P90X to me.

You could say that. But in a sense it's what most people have been trying to do anyway: Combining the cardio of insanity with the sculpting of P90X in a hybrid. Now it's a 30 day package that's much more tailored to sports.

Apparently they are about to start taping for Asylum 2. Should be out near the later part of the year.

I'll stick to the barbell for now.

Nothing wrong with that at all. We all have different things that work for us. I like asylum, but it's not for everyone, nor is it a perfect program. To be honest, I'd rather do crossfit, but I can't afford nor have the time to practice Muay Thai/BJJ and do crossfit. Do what you need to do and best of luck to you.

I have done my share of working out and using workout videos, but I think that insanity is strictly for people who are trying to lose weight fast. Insanity is way too much cardio for me, and not enough weight training. Crossfit is the way to go, but don't bother to pay when you can do it on your own. Crossfit posts all the workouts on their site, and you can modify them to get them done anywhere. All you need is soe dedication and to push yourself on a daily basis, because the workouts are brutal. Crossfit is the best overall workout getting you in real life, practical, functional conditioned shape.
