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? Let’s buy Insanity and do it together.” So I said (having no friggin idea what Insanity IS)…. “Sure. Sounds great.”
Well now I’m doing some research on it and I’m actually a little sick to my stomach. She’s a 6 foot solid muscled 18 year old (that somehow thinks she’s out of shape….women!) and I’m a 6 foot 250 lb 46 year old for Gods sake! I mean….I’m not a blob or anything. I’m 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 I’m reading about this workout is scaring the crap outta me! I’m really not sure I’ll be able to do this. Anyone went through this thing? This frigging workout is gonna show up in the mail any day now and……gulp…..I’m a-scairt!

One other thing.

If there is anyway you can do this with someone else, do it. I found that I pushed myself much harder with someone else doing it with you, for either competition or motivation reasons.

What the hell does any of that have to do with Peyton Manning?



JK. Nice work on completing it. I'm about to start it myself, just waiting on my broken ribs to finally heal. What a pain in the ass that has been. I'm convinced that I would rather break just about any other bone (except for neck/skull/spine) than ribs.

Finished the 3rd week, ready for that sweet, sweet day off tomorrow. My ankles definitely need a break.

Speaking of which, if you are overweight and/or not even remotely fit, this program is not advisable, but that did not stop me or the OP, so if you are going to do this anyway, go easy on the jumping and side to side stuff or you may hurt your ankles and knees.

One thing I do is when I take the inevitable unscheduled break(s), I'll often do them during those types of exercises, but you shouldn't completely skip them because jumping and running to the side is a big bang for the buck exercise, burning more calories than most of the workout. Also, sometimes if I know my ankle or knee is tweaked before I start that workout, I might do all the exercises (as long as I can, anyway) for the first circuit, then I might substitute power squats or sprints for the problematic exercises in the 2nd and 3rd circuits (assuming I'm not gassed and resting through them)

I've been keeping up with the thread, but haven't ordered yet. Starting a new job on Tuesday & as soon as the first paycheck gets in, Insanity'll be my first purchase. Woulda gotten into it awhile ago, but finances have been shit for the last 6 months or so.

Can't wait to get into it though. Hope you all will keep posting, I'm enjoying the read & I'm sure it'll provide motivation for when I start.

I’ve finished the first month and I’m in recovery week. I’ve only lost 4 lbs and that is a huge disappointment. I am more firm…absolutely. Should have taken measurements before I started. I’m sure my chest and belly and legs are smaller. Still…I am disappointed. I should have put more effort into the nutritional side of this…but I didn’t. My reasoning was this…..I’ve been pretty steady 245-250 for maybe 3 years now. I don’t necessarily eat bad…I’m very aware of my intake…and I suppose that’s why I haven’t gained weight in 3 years. So by my reasoning…killing myself every frigging day and keeping my intake roughly the same should result in some good weight loss. It didn’t…so far. I have no doubt I’ve put on muscle…but dammit. Four friggging lbs! Pisses me off.
My next big decision is whether to do month 1 again. I am strongly considering it. Although I do get through the workouts…some of them really really kick my ass…which makes me think I’m probably not ready to increase the torture just yet. Pretty sure I’m gonna turn this into a 3 month saga. I ain’t gonna quit though! I do have myself a beer night at least once a week, maybe two…4 or 6-sh. I know it’s a lot of calories…but like I said before…I’ve stuck at 250 for years now doing much less exercise. I’m gonna ditch beer for my second go at month one and see how much difference it makes. Beer…..mmmm…

Question: I have a good friend who played college football & coached high school football in a pretty good sized program. So he knows a little something about fitness. I was talking to him about my disappointment and he wondered if I could be over training. I researched this a little bit. Here is one definition….
Overtraining is a physical, behavioral, and emotional condition that occurs when the volume and intensity of an individual's exercise exceeds their recovery capacity.
I was like HOLY SHIT! I’ve said before in this thread….Shawn T will say “make sure you recover, it’s important this is interval training” meaning that my heart rate is supposed to chill out during those 30 second breaks before I ramp it up again. Look man…I’m ****ing pushing myself….hard! So at the end of many of the 30 second breaks I am still dying! I actually wonder…is it POSSIBLE….that if I pause the CD and take a longer break…maybe 45 seconds or something….that my results may be better?? Anyone get what I’m saying? Anyone know anything about over training? I mean good LORD…these workouts! I’m wondering how a younger more fit guy is gonna not over train and I’m 47. My heart rate almost always gets a little over what my max should be during these workouts (I’m actually starting to feel a little better at that level though).

Nutrition is a huge part of all those programs. Just as, if not more important, than the workout portions.

Im in my second day of my second week.

I have been the opposite of the last few posts. I have been on the diet big time. Made an excel spread sheet of the meals that I was willing to make/eat, and spread that out over 8 weeks. I know exactly what I'm eating every day till then.

I was 230lbs when I started, not sure what I am now, probably close to the same. The exorcise is straight up killing me though. I have only been able to swing four days of it because I have been so sore. And at about the 15 minutes left marker, I'm so gassed that im getting 3-10 reps per excercise if that in.

I may end up repeating month 1 just because of how terrible I am in the excercise department. Biggest thing for me though is no booze. I made a pledge to myself that I would not drink till I was done. I have had several friends try to take me to the hospital to make sure that I'm ok, since one can normaly find me with a beer/scotch/jack daniels in my hand.

On a side note, anyone notice the hot red head in the videos? Unnnffff!!!


Frankotank...

I would say definately take that rest a little longer. I feel like at the end im not getting a workout because im so beyond that my heart rate just isn't coming down. So maybe give yourself an extra 15 - 30 seconds to come down and start up again.

Day 1 for me today. Been sitting on it for 5 weeks, but I managed to break 2 ribs right before starting it.

Woke up at 5am and did the Fitness Test. It wasn't awful, but it certainly wasn't easy by any means. We'll see how I feel tomorrow.

My fitness test was embarassing. Lets say it should not be hard to beat those numbers that I failed to put up.

Yeah but everyone has different calories out at rest, working out, etc. Some people can eat anything they want and not gain a lb.

Suicide Jumps: 18-24
Push-up Jacks: 20-37
Low Plank Oblique: 42-64

I didn't measure my body fat% before (or yet).

Comments:

I didn't really follow the nutrition plan (other than some portion control) which no doubt affected my measurement results, but I feel like I improved my cardio and strength quite a bit. I'm glad it was only 2 months, because I was kind of getting bored with it. It did give results and I'll probably use some of the circuit training DVDs once or twice a week in addition to the running I'd like to do. I'll also probably go through it again next January as I find that these DVDs are good excercise routines to do during the winter months. I just can't do these programs when it is so nice outside.

Also, it took until the LAST workout to finally go through the MAX Cardio Conditioning with virtually no break so don't sweat it if you are taking breaks. The fit test is actually maybe one of the toughests workouts, probably because you are busting ass to try and beat your previous best. There's a lesson there maybe.

Anyway, that's my experience. Time for the T-shirt.
That's pretty good results. The waistline thing shows you're firming up a lot, probably more than is shown by just looking at weight. From my experience with these things the body has kind of a lag effect, and you should be poised to lose a lot of weight if you follow any kind of diet and normal exercise routine now.

I met some dude at a party last night who said he lost 55 lbs in 6 months on insanity.

This if your looking for drastic results weight wise. He's finding out that the weight will come off but not at the rate he wants.

Regarding weight loss, it really just comes down to calories in < calories out, though longer rest breaks could possibly help, if it means prolonging the workout and keeping your heart rate up for a longer period of time. (health reasons aside for possibly needing longer breaks, I'm just talking weight) If that ends up helping, thats all it would be, is that you are basically "exercising" for a longer period of time, not that the break itself is magically making you lose weight faster. You may want to keep a food diary or something to see exactly, after a week or two, what you are taking in, how many calories it is, etc. NFL linemen work out like madmen too, but they don't lose weight because, by design, they eat like madmen.

I'm losing at roughly that rate. I'm down a bit over 6 pounds after 3 weeks. 2 lb/week, assuming you aren't drastically dieting, is a pretty good, steady, healthy rate.

Worrying about weight loss in March, when Girl scout cookies are being delivered, is fruitless. Give in and have a Tag-a-long.
