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!

Meh, you put that kind of effort into any exercise program and its going to work. It's not about the exercises, its about the amount of effort.

And chances are, if you are really out of shape, you don't have the mental stamina stick to it, regardless of your physical stamina.

Yeah, lets ignore all the success stories out there that prove that statement to be completely wrong.

He has a point. I'd be willing to bet for every success story there are 10 or more beginners that quit. Of course that is a guess going off of my facebook friends, but I'm sure it's a pretty safe bet.

That's not to say it doesn't work, but his statement is not completely wrong. The real key is to find a physical activity you enjoy and stick with it. If you enjoy Insanity or P90x, then go for it. I'd rather play basketball, box, and golf on the weekend.

I don't deny that but his statement really didn't allow for the success stories out there which are also many.

You are exactly right about the time issue too. P90x drives me nuts with the hour or longer workouts. I burn out from boredom after I hit 35-40 minutes. I just don't enjoy workouts. Never have. I do them out of necessity only.
Yeah, I got bored of p90x after a couple of months, too... their big thing is "muscle confusion" and workout variety, but it's kind of a joke. One workout is a bunch of different variations of push-ups and pull-ups, the leg workout has a bunch of squat and lunges, yoga is extremely slow and repetitive, and one of the cardio workouts is just a combination of 3 other DVDs.

I've tried getting back into it, but I'm just not passionate about it at all.

If you aren't lifting, you won't get the same results.

man there is some great feedback in here. I'm actually getting kinda excited about starting insanity. I have a bowflex and a treadmill and when I'm in my groove they work very well together. I was down to 235 last year but then got sick and lost my mojo. I've always felt the best thing is to get up early in the morning and get it done before going to work....that way I don't have the opportunity to talk myself out of it at the end of the day.
I should be starting sometime next week. Wednesday more than likely (after houseguests leave - they don't need to be anywhere near this horrific experiment!) we get 300 bucks added to our flex spending accounts if we get a physical before end of march, so of course mine is scheduled for......the end of march. be interesting to see how much tankness is gone by then....

So what would you suggest? Should one just not even try? Just curious.

No. Definitely try it, especially if you're excited about it. Doing something is better than doing nothing. Figure out what you enjoy & what your goals are.

But I need to exercise to lose weight and improve my health (I am a diabetic, so I need to lose the belly). Which workout best accomplishes this without killing me? I know neither one of these are going to be easy, and I will be sucking some serious wind for awhile just to make it through.
P90x is largely based on diet as well. If you do it, get your neighbors nutrition books - basically for the first 30 days you are going to eat protein and vegetables.

You'll also need a chin up bar, really good sneakers, and at a minimum exercise bands.

Use very light resistance, nor none for a lot of the exercises your first time around.

You'll see a change if you stick with it, but you'd probably see a change anyway if you go from eating chips on your couch to eating well and doing any exercise to exhaustion for an hour to an hour and a half a day.

I started Insanity five weeks ago. I'm just about to start the second month. I have mixed feelings.

The good:

I feel my cardio has improved and I do feel stronger. The fit test that they have you do intermittently shows that I am getting in shape. However,

The so- so:

I started out at 207 for a 6', 39-year old and have only dropped about 4 pounds. I don't feel thinner, but I have went down a notch on the old belt. I can't tell the difference in the mirror. Ill wait until the end of the month to compare the before and after pictures.

If you go through the message boards on the BeachBody website, they say things like results are 80% diet and 20% workout. If that's the case, then I feel I've been duped. My diet wasn't (isn't) horrible but I have curtailed portions and eliminated late night eating. I bust it in the workouts and should be seeing better results IMO.

The bad:

It was killing my back. The stretching is WAY too inadequate. For all the core workouts they do, I don't think they are that effective. I've since supplemented it with yoga, extra stretching and the ab ripper X from P90X and it feels better.

All in all, I think maybe I've set myself up to have a big second month by building a little muscle. But we'll see. I'll try to let you all know how it goes.

I've been doing a lot of spin classes at the gym. Matter fact on my way now. Lose weight feel great.
Real Athletes can't do Insanity? Please. Insanity was tough, but hardly impossible. I did it once through, and came back and did it again last summer. It's a good workout, and great for cardio.

It isn't that hard, once you get your cardio up. I highly recommend it for burning some fat and leaning the mid section.
