I have just bought the Insanity workout. I know 2 people who have completed the program, both with very impressive results.
gedgino: oh dear. Alcohol and serious training never go together well.
Always next week though. Hope things go better.

today i done "pure cardio", god it was a hard one, done it first thing in the morning before hunting for stone roses tickets....i found a few times where i was stopping earlier than usual...whether that was the difficulty of it or losing a bit of motivation i dont know. funnily enough, i am starting to feel more strong now and hopefully soon SEE some changes! off on the ale now...NO KEBAB!!!
I'm an insanity graduate. I'm on my second round of insanity and i can honestly say that i've never looked back! 80 switch kicks for a first time is VERY impressive.
Regarding Whey Protein drinks - use skimmed milk/soya milk instead of water - it tastes like milkshake if you do.... i use the myprotein ones. Regarding your diet - I'd make sure that you're writing down everything. For the crazy insanity workouts you really need to refuel your body within an hour of finishing and making sure that whatever you do it - your body is getting enough fuel on board. There were several days where i nearly fainted because i didnt eat enough.
The thing about the insanity workout is to keep with it. You'll be hurting for the first couple of days but after that - you'll be on great guns. One of the biggest bits of advice is to make sure that you're doing the moves correctly. The worst thing to do would be to put out your bank by doing the plank wrong
I workout in the kitchen or outside to avoid waking the neighbours with my jumping - it seems to work pretty well!
Yeah, it's one of the biggest issues I have with insanity - getting the moves right. When i get tired and worn out - i'll slouch or not do the moves properly so it's one of my biggest flaws!
I'm normally left drowning in a pool of sweat! It makes me feel like i'm really working!
The MAX sessions are INSANE. I LOVED them and would only do the second month if i could . It's a lot of hard work and you're on the sessions for an hour... it's literally insane. I found I had so much energy after doing it - it really made me so energetic! I kept a daily diary too on the insanity thread - it made me "keep at it".
I'm doing it again because I enjoyed it and really loved the results. I was thinking about P90X and some of the others but in the end - insanity is something that i can do wherever I am and I dont need anything else.
