Just completed the end of week 2. The Cardio Abs after completing Pure Cardio is MAD!!! Felyt like a physical wreck after it but I am still enjoying it overall. 2nd fitness test tomorrow so fingers crossed for some good results.
Just completed Day 1 Week 2. I am sticking to it just although did swop a Rest Day from Sunday to Saturday because of work commitments. I have lost 8lbs during the first week and have started to feel the benefits. I am completing pretty much all of the warm ups now without stopping. I thought I would be aching so much more than I am but have followed the warm downs to the letter and think this is probably why. Diet wise I am not taking protein shakes but immediately after the DVD I have a chocolate milkshake and a high protein snack/meal instead. I am not following the meal plans in the book but have cut down portion size on my main meal, eating 5 times a day and introduced more dairy, meat, beans etc for protein top ups. I agree with the earlier comments about Pure Cardio. When Shaun T said that he was feeling nervous about what was to come!!!!!!!!
The reason I started Insanity was because as I got injured training for the Edinburgh Marathon at the beginning of March running a half marathon. I was so annoyed that I binged for a month didn't do any exercise and put on a stone in weight. I then tried a run and had to give up after 4 miles due to the pain. I was going to start Insanity in June after the marathon but started last week as I had given up on the marathon. With the first weeks results fitness and weight loss I feel that the marathon may possibly be back on!! Anyone reading this thread and thinking about starting GO FOR IT!!!
Day 3 completed with football to come tonight. I have started by increasing protein in my diet and eating a high protein meal after the workout. Does everyone use protein shakes?? I will be investing in a mat as well as I have a laminate floor and once the sweat on starts it is too slippery. Still enjoing at the moment though and like the sound of tomorrows Cardio RECOVERY. I hope it really is a recovery
Thanks Samantha. Mark its good to have someone else starting the same time as me for extra motivation and a few of your fitness test results are similar to mine. Just finished day 2 and probably went too hard in the warm up and beginning. With experience and improved fitness I am sure this will get better. 5 a side football tomorrow mixed with day 3......
