Insanity Workout
 
Has anyone on here ever tried or used the insanity workout dvd's,
I'm not really that out of shape would just like to tone up a little more, my brother just got it so I was just looking for some input before I started it. It's supposedly pretty intense so I hear.

You will probably need something heavier than dvds to get in good shape.

If you do it 6 days a week and religiously stick to their diet plan you will lose lots of weight and tone up your muscles. I also suggest you take daily vitamins/supplements (green coffee bean supplements are good for losing weight). I started last Jan when I was 225 and got down to 195 by March. Then life got in the way and I started working more and didn't have a whole hell lot of time on my hands.....gained it all back LMAO. Gonna have to whip out those dvds again in time for the summer mankini season.

Well I weigh 173lbs and I stand 5'10 so my bmi is legit and I landscape for a living but the problem is it's winter so I basically just sit around on my ass everyday until March, I take a GNC multi vitamin everyday but really don't watch what I eat so like I said I don't really need to lose weight, just want to kinda tone up and keep a handle on my weight during my off time and as far as time to do it goes I have all the time in the world right now so good there

I'm not a nutritionist or a fitness expert by any means, but you don't have to be one to know that diet is about 75-80% of the workout regiment. The other 25% or so is just not cheating yourself and sticking to the workout plan they lay out. You can't do this by doing the brown paper bag diet or having the munchies at night before you go to sleep. That's the biggest problem I have. I smoke weed a lot at night before bed and I get VERY hungry and sometimes have just gone on hunger raids in my kitchen. Need to stop doing that or else I'm gonna be a fat bastard.

Try to stay away from dairy - only use skim milk if you have to, white breads or anything that isn't 100& whole wheat and really only supposed to have that in small portions. Peanut butter is good but has to be all natural..not Jiffy or the sweet stuff loaded w/ sugar etc. Fruits/veggies nuts/berries and eggs/fish/chicken are your friend.

Depends on what you want to do. Lost weight or get toned.

Insanity workouts are intense. It's good for toning and losing weight. You may get bored after a little while too. p90x is better for getting bulk, though you may not get in tip top cardio shape. p90x is a happy medium, but still... cardio is too light for my taste.

Lots of insanity talk in this thread.

I burn the same amount of calories playing table tennis as I do with a full Insanity workout, and table tennis is much more fun.

You must play some intense table tennis.

Well, I would simply say that's the difference between ping pong and table tennis. But yeah, we definitely get into it.

I am really big into Rush Fit with George Saint Pierre. The whole workout cost like 70 or 80 and you need a pair of dumbells. By far better crossfit than insanity, which makes me feel I am just running in place for a half hour.
