Insanity is Insane!

Is anyone else doing Insanity?  I've just finished week one and it's BARELY getting easier.  I still have to pause a lot to catch my breath.  I feel like there is absolutely no way to continuously do the workout!!  Anyone else doing this and feel the same way?

I did 4 days of it two weeks ago.  I would love to pick it back up and keep track with some buddies!  My cousin is a body builder and has been training me on weekends so I was kind of prepared for a lot of the exercises but not to this level!


I am desperately needing to stick to it and my diet, it's so hard!

I LOVE INSANITY! Omg, if you do it correctly and follow the food plan, you will watch fat MELT off your body. No kidding..


ILoveMyDog - I think it might be impossible to make it through an entire workout continuously lol. I def cannot. And, if you watch the people in the videos, they don't either!


Kelly - it's ALLLL cardio. Extremely intense cardio. Combined with a lot of plyometrics. Saying it's insane is probably being pretty nice about it haha. But it's so fun and, like I said before, it's amazing! It's most def not easy, so if you're not willing to work hard, then don't bother with it. But seriously, it's awesome lol.

It sounds like exactly what I need. I get bored with other videos because they are too easy. Where do you buy this? Off to google...

Nope I am still doing my Turbo Fire routine and loving it. My clothes are fitting loser and I have lost several more pounds. I will be soon approaching my 40lb weight goal!!! I have done P90X and was not a fan of it. I like high twich, high impact aerobic workouts so I have been contemplating getting it. Since you are having so much fun I may make that my next routine; however, I don't need to lose any more weight past my goal so maybe I shouldn't? I am just so indecisive LOL! Anywho, keep up the good work.

congrats nubianqueen! 40lbs! that's great! i actually am not a fan of p90x either.  to me it's really boring and tony annoys me haha.  but i really like insanity and sean.  it's really fast pased and i never get bored, and i feel like sean is a better motivator than tony.


from what i've been reading, insanity isn't a weight loss program.  sure you can lose weight, but it's mainly a tool to get you into really good shape.  i've been doing it for 2 weeks now and actually have only lost 1 lb, but i've been losing inches.  hope this helps you decide!

Today was my first day so of course it was my fit test. I was sweating but I did pretty good. My numbers were high to start with so all I am going to do is pray and dig deeper and go harder LOL! ;)

Hi gals I did day one of plyometrics and I must say this workout is intense. P90x aint got nothing on this workout. Man I have never truly been sore for a workout but I am feeling it in my back. I just may need ibuprofen after tomorrow mornings workout. This workout will whoop you a##. :)

Hello Chicas!! I just wanted to report that I have not missed one workout routine since beginning the regimen and that I am now on week 6! I can't believe I have come this far. Best thing is I am keeping up with the people on TV. I am getting stronger each day and also watching my body make a miraculous change. :D

nubianqueen, try drinking a protein shake after you do your workout.  I did Insanity and never got sore because I drank a protein shake immediately after each workout.  I've found that Optimum Nutrition is the best tasting one (double chocolate).


I'm doing Chalean Extreme right now and will do Insanity again when I finish.


Good Luck!!!

I love the insanity dvds! If only I could stick with it. it's so much fun though and so challenging I love it! I lost 3 pounds in the first week. I think I'm gonna start back up next week, I need some motivation and some self discipline! Lol

Is anyone still doing this? I am planning to purchase this in a couple weeks. I still have awhile before my wedding but gives me time to get toned which is more of what I am looking for. Tighten and tone as well as lose some inches. I am a picky eater so I'm afraid the diet will be my downfall
