Anybody here does Shaun T's Insanity?

I'm hoping to have a buddy to vent/cheer to/with about this crazy program...

Currently in my second week, on my third try. Vow to finally finish. I need to drop some pounds before I start training for the Disney Marathon.

The problem I always run into is traveling for work. Next month I have to get through trips to Seattle and Boston. Luckily I know the moves well enough I could just listen to the videos on my iPod.

How far are you?
Will Josh ever not over stretch?

I started Monday! I'm so excited about this program! My husband did P90x twice, and tried Insanity, but it wasn't for him. I love it so far! I can't even make it all the way through the warm ups without taking a break, but I take a break and push on. I'm average weight, 132lbs, 5'4", but after having 2 kids, I really want to be more toned. I've seen the p90x results first hand, so I know Insanity can get me where I want to be if I put in the effort and don't give up.

Good luck!

YAY!!!
Someone else are doing this crazy program too!!!!

Burkeland, I'm on my second week first try...
So far I'm doing ok. I don't think I ever cursed during an exercise before. Shaun T managed to get me to do it.
I honestly don't think I'll do the second month before going through the first month at least twice. I'm thinking three times.


I think it's funny how the people on the DVD worked so hard when Shaun came over to talk to them and then they look like they're going to pass out as soon as he walked away...

I am ok for the first 15mins and then iffy afterwards. Definitely taking more than the alloted breaks in the program.

Good luck during your travels! I can imagine how difficult it is to follow the complete program when you're on the road. It's hard enough not being on the road.

mjlewis,
I know what you mean about 2 kids. I have this jiggly belly skin that just won't go away. Doesn't matter how hard I work my abs nothing is showing... sigh...

I hate Shaun T.

I made it about 2 weeks through the program a few months ago...very intense. My DH, on the other hand, is doing his 2nd round of it, getting in shape for our July trip. I am opting for other methods (i.e. our elliptical, eating better, etc...)

His "Hip Hop Abs" program is a little more tolerable.

Good luck to you all!!!

LOL....

I actually cannot send the man but then I find that after the second or third time of anyone on a DVD I start to revolt. It's something about the bad (after hearing them again - and again) jokes and comments. Some with Tony H

Now don't get me wrong, the program kicks A. I was in near peak condition and failed to make the first week without punting. I do throw a dvd in on occasion for a hard non repetitive motion cardio session.

I think with all DVD's a wise student will first understand who they are and where they are physically prior to starting a program. I use them as a supplement and definitely borrow sets from both Tony and Shawn

Excited to be on my last go-around of the videos.

Last night was my last Max Circuit. My last time seeing Ariel almost get her head knocked off by the break dancing guy. Also, in this last month, I have noticed there are two Ariels! There's an R-E-all and an air-E-L ... I think. Anyhoo, four more days, and then a week off (or just going to the gym).

I think next will be the lean p90x program. I should just probably do Insanity again but I want some sense of accomplishment and closure. Maybe I'll come back later!

And as always, keep up the good work everyone!!

Burkelands, I am SO excited for you!!!! I had to take the past 2 days off because I injured my arch in my left foot from Max interval training. I have extremely flat feet, and the amount of jumping involved has taken its toll. Back to it tomorrow though (although I think I'm going to wrap my foot first).

That breakdancing guy drives me nuts. Poor Ariel....another 2 inches and that could have been tragic!

I have a question for people on the second month of Insanity. We got to the second fit test today and I started SERIOUSY out of shape but I'm definitely noticing results and I'm able to do more of the video. But I still take lots of breaks and can't do a lot of things.
Would it be better to repeat the first month until I can actually do it before moving on to month two? Or would it be better just to struggle through month 2? We'll probably do the cycle twice anyways.
Opinions?

Sam,

I also have to take lots of breaks too. I am not near the fitness level of those crazy people in the videos and even they take breaks. So, I pushed through and moved to month 2. I am going to give myself a couple weeks off when I am done and do another round, and maybe I'll be more successful.

Did you happen to notice how easy the warmup was on the fit test after doing those insane warmups in the other videos? That was the indication to me that I'm getting more in shape:-), the first fit test, I was dying through the warm up!

I may start it again. The last time. I ended up in the ER with a strained lower back muscle. Ouch!

Yep did it last summer, but got pregnant again. I guess thats what happens when your working out with your spouse with all those endorphins!

Currently 7 weeks postpartum and just added Insanity to my Chalean Extreme rotation and doing a hybrid of the two.
