Many people shall like to do all 2 programs eventually with the goal of getting fit and toned, but in the meantime prior to beginning anyone would like to see some weight loss or at least reduction in their measurements. Has anyone ever completed any or all 2 of these programs? Which is better for weight loss?

Two very popular home DVD workouts created by two very popular personal trainers. I am talking about the P90X workout and the Chalean Extreme. These two workout systems are amongst the best home workouts in the nation. So what is the difference between the two, and if you are thinking about picking on of these up what are the differences you should know about? Let us first start by explaining what each workout consists of.
The P90X Workout by Tony Horton:
P90X is a revolutionary system of 12 sweat-inducing, muscle-pumping workouts, designed to transform your body from regular to ripped in just 90 days. Tony Horton will keep you engaged every step of the way, and you won’t believe your results! The secret behind the P90X system is an advanced training technique called “Muscle Confusion,” which accelerates the results process by constantly introducing new moves and routines so your body never plateaus, and you never get bored! Whether you want to get lean, bulk up, or just plain get ripped, there’s an endless variety of ways to mix and match the routines to keep you motivated the full 90 days and beyond! The complete P90X system includes – 12 Highly Diverse and Intense Workouts: 1) 32-minute How to Bring it; 2) 52-minute Chest and Back DVD; 3) 58-minute Plyometrics DVD; 4) 59-minute Shoulders and Arms DVD; 5) 92-minute Yoga DVD; 6) 58-minute Legs and Back DVD; 7) 55-minute Kenpo X DVD: 57-minute X Stretch DVD; 9) 57-minute Core Synergistics DVD 10) 55-minute Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps DVD; 11) 51-minute Back and Biceps DVD; 12) 43-minute Cardio X DVD; 13) 16-minute Ab Ripper X DVD. All DVD run times are approximate. It takes just an hour a day to get in the best shape of your life. All you need is a set of dumbbells or resistance bands and a place to do pull-ups.
The Chalean Extreme by Chalene Johnson:
The Chalean Extreme is a newer workout then the P90X, and definitely in the same league as the P90X. The Chalean Extreme has not been tested by time, but everyone that tries this workout absolutely loves it. This workout is much better to start with if you are not in that great of shape. But do not underestimate it, I nearly threw up on day two my first time doing the workouts. This home workout system has the goal of building muscle in order to burn fat. Chalene Johnson says often, “Muscle Burns Fat.” And burning fat is the goal.
Phase 1: Burn Start resistance training at your own pace to jump-start your metabolism and break down those extra reserves of fat. In these moderate training workouts, you’ll work your upper body then lower body, using the Lean Phasing technique to help you see results every 30 days.
Phase 2: Push Chalene shows you how to push beyond your comfort zone safely, so you build the muscle you need to burn fat. Chalene helps you push yourself, so you get fast results.
Phase 3: Lean Here is where you really melt the fat, with new routines and dynamic moves. This phase is designed to deliver major changes to your body.
Extreme Cardio During each phase, Chalene ignites your metabolism with intense cardio and strength-training routines, and then rejuvenates and lengthens your muscles with an invigorating flexibility workout.
If you walk into a gym, where are you likely to feel most comfortable? A) On the weighfloor lifting with the guys; B) In the aerobics studio taking a class, or B) On the basketball courts doing windsprints with the jocks.
If you answered A) You probably would enjoy P90X the most, if B) ChaLEAN Extreme is likely to be more up your alley, if C) Then you sound like an Insanity person. (Its no surpise that the videos are even shot on sets that feel like The Weight Floor, The Aerobics Studio and The Basketball Court.)
How much instruction do you like? A) Just tell me what to do and lets bang this mofo out! B) Can you check my form? C) I know what Im doing, but keep me from wussing out, please!
If A) Youll like P90Xs no-nonsense approach. You wont get any handholding and just a couple verbal cues and instruction, but its mostly follow-the leader. If you answered B) because you need/like more handholding, ChaLEAN comes with PLENTY- including separate DVDs to walk you through all the form and moves, as well as loads of form instructions and cues during the workouts themselves. If you answered C) youll like Shaun Ts encouraging-but-not-micromanaging style in Insanity.
What kind of pacing do you like for your workouts? A) Hit it hard and sometimes burn out early, knowing you can take breaks, B) Slow and steady wins the race, C) Holy Moses, my hairs on fire and this roller coaster has no breaks!
If A) Youll like the way P90X turns into an interval experience hitting muscles hard to fatigue with bouts of recovery in between. If B) Youll like the controlled approach to ChaLEAN extreme. There are even parts of the workout where you literally move in slow motion to burn out the muscles isometrically, if C) Youll love the no-time-to-blink speed and constant motion of Insanity.
How much equipment are you prepared to keep in your home? A) I love equipment, I already have it all and/or have space and the funds to get it all, B) I have one or two things, and have been known to own a Thighmaster, C) I have room for a pair of shorts and me and thats about it.
If A) Then P90X would be a good fit- youll need bands or barbells and a pull-up bar at the least push-up stands are nice, you can get some weight gloves if you want. A yoga mats good to have. If B) Then ChaLEAN might be right for you. You will need dumbells, and you will need ot make sure the weight can keep increasing, so either something with multiple weight options like the Selectek dumbells, or a commitment to buy new dumbells every few months. The program also comes with a lovely lavender thigh toner band. (I guess a question I should consider including in this quiz is How concerned are you about toning your thighs?) If you answered C) then Insanity might be right for you. All you need are some shoes and shorts, and Im sure people would argue that both of those are technically optional in the privacy of your own home.
