INSANITY Workout any CP Insanity veterans in here??
 
So my daughter says to me the other day. Hey Dad, you said you were going to get back to working again right? Lets buy Insanity and do it together. So I said (having no friggin idea what Insanity IS). Sure. Sounds great.
Well now Im doing some research on it and Im actually a little sick to my stomach. Shes a 6 foot solid muscled 18 year old (that somehow thinks shes out of shape.women!) and Im a 6 foot 250 lb 46 year old for Gods sake! I mean.Im not a blob or anything. Im pretty active....OK fairly active. I can still bust some moves on a basketball court..I just gotta play the half court game now you know? I hit the treadmill from time to time. But for crying out loud what Im reading about this workout is scaring the crap outta me! Im really not sure Ill be able to do this. Anyone went through this thing? This frigging workout is gonna show up in the mail any day now andgulp..Im a-scairt!

From the commercials, it looks like the latest knockoff of p90x (or whatever that was a knockoff of).... so, do your best and forget the rest.

You won't have a heart attack. You'll work out as hard as you can, then your mind will give up. Don't worry about hurting yourself because you won't.

We need to know whether she's in shape enough for this workout.

For her benefit.

I will vouch for the insanity workouts. I had done p90x twice without losing any weight, but I did put on lean muscle. Insanity is cardio for the most part, with pushups being pretty much the only resistance training. I lost a solid 36 lbs and was in as good of shape or better since high school after two months of Insanity.

I was never a lazy, sedentary out of shape guy before starting Insanity, but had a bit of a gut I was looking to lose and this workout did it quickly. I will say, it is going to kick your butt if you put the effort in. The first several weeks of workouts I was routinely at 170-185 BPM for a good portion of the workouts/intervals. Now I have a resting HR in the low 60s.

Do it man, it works.

I did the insanity workout and I am slim, but insanely out of shape. It will work you well, but as I recall he also gives recommendations of slight modifications to every exercise for those that need the help.

I also didn't feel so bad about taking breaks during the workouts when I saw the other people in the videos taking breaks in the middle as well.

My neighbor loaned me this, but I have been too scared to try it due to how out of shape I am. I suppose I need to overcome my fear and get to work.

Loved insanity. Love that half the people in the video can't get through it either. I finished it but ended up hurting my foot towards the end, there is a ton of hoping and jumping, hard on the joints.
