P90X for the off season?

<p>DH got it for super cheap from someone, and I'm intrigued. I'd love to lean out and build some muscle to come back stronger next season. But, I don't want to lose running fitness either. It is realistic to do the program AND keep up a decent running base??</p>

<p>Anyone have any experience with it?</p>

<p>I have p90X and haven't done it.  The equipment is kind of off-putting for me.  I just finished 2 months of INSANITY workouts and found that I was only able to run 2x a week (I was also swimming 2x).  However, at least with INSANITY, I didn't feel like I lost any cardio vascular fitness.  P90X isn't nearly as cardio heavy as INSANITY is though.  I dunno, I think you should be able to run 3-4x a week but they might not be real quality runs as you will likely have some fatigue.</p>
