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!

Are most workouts around 40ish minutes?

just finished pure cardio. it was the worst yet. I was very disappointed in myself at first, then I began to see all the hard bodies dropping like flies so I eased up on myself. this one had my heart rate above what is recomended. and still, going at my own slow pace, I had to take breaks. I guess keeping your heart rate up is the important thing. I actually pushed to hard according to the formula (220 - Age) * .65 for low end and *.85 for high end. I was above .85. can't say I didn't try.

I overanalyze most things.....I've always thought that taking ibuprofren after a workout would decrease muscle building because it would decrease inflamation (muscles get ripped in a workout and heal becoming larger). any thoughts on this? I've said the hell with it and been taking it after workouts. I'll probably get past that though, I'm already starting to hurt less.

oh, King, not all workouts are 40 minutes, some are closer to 30. but some are more. I see ahead on the shedule a day where you are supposed to do Pure Cardio AND an Ab workout which is another 15 minutes so that day will be about 55 minutes of torture.

OK, I haven't been keeping up with this thread, but I'll chime in.

I'm at the start of week 7 on Insanity. I started out a 6'1" 207 39-year old and I have no idea what I currently weigh. I decided that it doesn't really matter as long as I feel strong and like how I look. I'll probably weigh and measure myself at the very end to satisfy my taste for metrics, but I'm determined not to dwell on whatever they happen to be.

I don't mean to be a downer, but believe me when I say that the first month is just a warm up. I can see why a lot of people who had done Insanity told me they quit in the first or second week of month 2.

Having said that, they should have pushed through. I feel much more energetic after the first few workouts. I added some stretching and started eating a little more and my energy levels are a lot higher. The mid section feels tight and is reduced. I have a few minor pains (something that can only be described as a charlie horse in my left calf and a nerve twinge in my left groin) but nothing that prevents me from doing the workouts.

This workout isn't for everyone. If you absolutely, positively don't like to do squats or plank exercises (pushups, in-and-outs) you will not like month 2, but realize that the reason you don't like to do them is likely because you are not very good at them and/or strong enough to do them.

With only 3 weeks left, I'll muscle through to the end and get the t-shirt. I hope the weather is good enough to begin running more outside.

As for my diet. I do watch what I put in my body, but I'm not religous about it. I don't swear off foods, but I don't over indulge on sweets, high calorie drinks or alcohol. I like the 5 meals a day idea. The thought there is that you only eat to fuel your body. It's also easier to determine the # of calories you are consuming when your target goal is 300-500 per meal. If I were to eat 3 squares a day, then estimating 800-1000 calories is a lot tougher. Regardless, if I'm honest with myself, I know that it needs to be a diet I will stick to and if it is too big of a change right off the bat, I won't stick to it. Baby steps. I find that when I do overeat, I feel like crap. I detest that bloated feeling, so that is what keeps me on track and keeps me on the 5-meal plan.

YOU can do whatever you want. YOU don't have to do the workouts back to back or even both of them. For instance, I think the ab workout sucks, so I do the ab ripper X twice a week to make up for it and on my schedule. I stick to it, because I know that core strength is worth every bit of energy put into it.

As for the ibuprofen, if you are experiencing some soreness, I'd advise to stretch more and drink more water. Lactic acid has built up in your muscles. This is the reuslt of your muscles working anerobically (without oxygen). Stretching the muscle and getting enough water will help to get rid of that build-up.

I know, it's odd isn't it? The motivation for me to finish this program is just a lousy t-shirt? On a higher level it is more of a symbol of my effort, but it's weird how little things like that can motivate someone.

Yeah, I heard about month #2, and I'm going to be interrupted for a solid 2 weeks for a big Arizona spring training vacation in March, so my plan is to repeat month #1 after I get back. So, I'm on a 90-day plan. I'm hoping after those 90 days I'll be fit enough to cut them down to maybe 3 or 4 times a week instead of 6.

8 workouts in now. did pure cardio again today. getting much better at the heart monitoring thing and it's shocking how easy it is for me to get above my max. I am learning that I gotta slow down a little. I am certainly pushing myself too hard sometimes. my max is 147 and I get into the 150's sometimes. guess my heart must be in pretty good shape.
I feel better. I'm definitely more solid. but I made a big mistake....I stepped on a scale. stupid move. I seriously wanted to smash it. I won't be doing that again for a while. I really thought I'd see a big difference and it wasn't there. I FEEL the difference, but the scale isn't registering it so much. I know it doesn't mean much, that stupid number, but I was a little surprised at how much it really pissed me off. oh well....

it finally happened today....I woke up and actually wanted it! I wanted to torture my body....hooray! still often going above max heart rate. can't help it. even going at my own pace...eventually just trying to keep moving seems impossible. Shawn T. says...."remember you MUST let your body recoup on the breaks, it's very important". I'm thinking...are you CRAZY! 30 second breaks! I'd have to sit for 5/10 minutes to recoup. after a 30 second break my heart is still pounding. oh well. suck it up yo!

tomorrow is pure cardio (the toughest workout) AND cardio abs! pure cardio alone just about killed me. this will be interesting...

Actually, it's been proven that there is not a significant difference in resting for 30 seconds or 5/10 minutes. So even if you waited longer, you'd really feel the same either way once you got back into your workout.

I'm not following that at all. the difference would be a getting back into the workout with a heart rate of 150 vs 100! 30 seconds is not enough time for my heart to slow down.
