Default Insanity

Just bought the workout DVD. I want to be in shape for the start of next season. Anyone ever done this for the entire 60 days

I have only went through about two weeks once, and immediately saw a result. I was getting married so my wife and I did it for that.

Prepare to get your ass kicked. I was already going to the gym, but I'm heavy on weights, light on cardio.

It's essentially High Intensity Interval Training in video form. But it keeps it fresh and not boring. I had aches in body parts and muscles I didn't even know existed.

Funny enough, we just started it up last week. WE made a mistake by not getting into a little shape first and jumped right into it. Felt like throwing up after the first fitness test. IT was that bad.

I plan to use it to get into shape for next season too I have done it for a week here and there and it seems like it would be a good match for training for riding.

Been doing it for rugby training. I didn't know lying face-down in the snow could feel so good.

I used insanity during the off season last year. Although I didn't do every single day/workout I still managed to lose more than 10 lbs. i also didnt follow their diet plan so it could have been more. insanity has great core and lower body exercises. when I started snowboarding again, I noticed I had so much more energy than before. I used to get tired just standing up from heel edge but now can get up with no problem. I also feel as if I have better control of the board because you will work out muscles you rarely use.

I started doing the original Power 90 program last fall and was doing well until I tweaked my knee pretty bad. Going to get back on that program or maybe one of their newer ones this spring/summer for sure.

My friend Brad has done several of their programs from P90, P90X, Insanity and Body Beast (he actually put on about 20 lbs of muscle on that last one...) so I've definitely seen some amazing results from these.

If you want max progress, be sure to ease into it. Completely, kicking your ass completely at first isn't the way to go, especially as you get older. Your recovery time takes longer, and being able to stick with the program becomes more difficult. Chunk by chunk, steady progress.

I've done a lot of Rmax (Scott Sonnon's stuff) workouts, and that is one of the things stressed on there. As I enter my late 30s, I found the importance of this magnified.

Awesome I've finished p90x but wanted something that had no other objects to get back in shape.

It's legit. The best I've done is the first 30 days. Couldn't make the full 60

Insanity has a high injury rate. A lot of jumping around and quick movements don't go well with muscle fatigue. Be careful.
