So insanity, Shaun T belives this is the hardest workout ever put on to DVD. Who agrees. I have just started today Monday 11th March 2012. Is any one else undergoing this programme or thinking about taking part. I wanted to start this thread so we could share thoughts and ideas.
I think there's already a thread on this on the forum? Have a look, it's here somewhere.
There certainly is one somewhere .... srtrangely I have not been near it
Yea i have seen the other Insanity Forum cheers, Just wanted to start my own. Hopefully we can build a good chat foroum on the subject.
I am sure the others will be delighted
HI, I've also just started as of yesterday so am on Day 2.
Are you sticking to the diet plan? I'm going to try stick to the 5 meals plan and up my protein intake. Have you noticed any results in the first week?
Hi Stef, Im not sticking to the diet plan. I think its a good idea to if you can. What are you trying to gain from doing the insanity programme ?
I have also upped my protein intake although this is more for recovery than any thing else. I am on week 2 now. I haven't found it that difficult to stick to so far, I only rest on the actual rest periods and try not to stop on any exercise until instructed to do so.
I haven't noticed any change as of yet but I'm sure on the next fit test i will have improved on my results. Maybe a few more weeks changes may appear. Although I believe its only natural to improve as you no what score you already have to beat, makes you push a little bit more.
I did Insanity in 2010 and loved it. There's a lot to be learnt from it and it will push you if you push yourself.
I followed the diet plan as in the first week i was eating SO much as i was so hungry.
RoyalR1 - if you're not finding it difficult you must be doing something wrong or superhuman. Are you doing the movements correctly? If you're doing it correctly - you should be begging for the 30 sec rest at the end of every 3minutes.
The changes will appear after the first month (or they did for me at least).
Its all about pushing yourself I am a firm believer in this, I mean I haven't found it difficult to stick to following the programme as I know people miss days even in the first few weeks lol.
I certainly am blowing throughout and I do enjoy the rest, it is defiantly needed. I do manage to keep up with sean T and even push harder than most on the programme. This may change as the programme gets harder.
What kind of changes did you see ?
I am about to embark on this Insanity Challenge starting monday as i have 4 really long shifts at work to get out of the way first! i am anxious, excited about doing it, reading the other forum on here too i know it will be hard, im worried about fitting it in between certain shifts as i work 12 hr shifts so days are really long already!
However, i am lookingto tone, loose weight and be fitter! the only thing i am confused with, should i definately have a protien drink after each excersize and then count that in my daily calories so i will still lose weight? also i am worried i will bulk up and that is the last thing i want to do??
you are going to use an extra 400 - 600 calories a day doing insanity so if your diet is ok now and you dont need to lose too much extra weight eat them calories or youre not going to be able to put the required effort into the exercise, it depends if you are doing for weight lose or core strength
