Insanity Workout Reviews, My Personal Experience
Insanity workout is an sixty days cardio-based workout program, that combines high intensity aerobic and anaerobic Interval training, created by Shaun T, same person who created Hip Hop abs and other popular fitness programs. Since Insanity was released, it became a popular workout program and many who have written about Insanity workout reviews, have said that it might be one of the toughest and the best workout programs ever put on DVD's.
The first workout for me was really hard, in the first few minutes I was really exhausted but I thought I am capable of doing the workout, but then I realized that it was just the warm up and that the real exercise didn't begin yet. The first few days I couldn't complete one workout without taking rests in the middle it was really hard for me and I thought that I should quit the program. But what kept me going is the trainer, Shaun T is actually a very good and friendly trainer he was always motivating and gives excellent instruction during the workout, like when to stop and take rest to prevent injuries and when to go on and push yourself to the maximum.
To give a brief overview about the program, it is is a 60 days of cardio-based program that combines high intensity aerobic and anaerobic Interval training. It consists of 10 DVD's with 10 different workouts, each workout is about 45 minutes which is a good duration. The workouts are insanely tough, I think that's how they they've come up with the program name "Insanity", it will need a lot of will power to complete the workouts, so you must have a strong desire that you want to change your body. The stretching part is also great you do stretches before the exercise begin and after it finishes but it's really important for your muscles, the stretches is really good that after the hard exercise you don't feel any pain in your muscles.
The best part of the insanity workout program is that it is in a time frame, you can track your results. The program duration is 60 days you finish them and then your done. There is a schedule that comes with the program that tells you each day what exercise you have. Looking at the calendar each day and see how much you have accomplished and how much is left was really what kept me motivated during the program.
There was another thing which I liked, it was a workout called Fit test, this workout is preformed once every two weeks. This workout measure your progress during the program, it consists of some exercises and you measure how many times you can do this exercise in a specific time, example how many times you can do an exercise called "Push up Jacks" in one minute, as you go through the program, you notice how much you get better. Each time, I had to push myself more in the regular workouts, so when I do the fit test I feel that my workouts were worth the effort.
To sum up all this, I would like to say from my personal experience, that insanity workout program is not for everybody especially not for those who are lazy. In order to do insanity, you must first promise yourself that you have accepted a big challenge and you must do it. The workout may feel hard at first but then you get used to it, and you keep going on tracking your progress. Insanity workout has been a great experience for me, I got really great results from increasing my cardio, toning your muscles and getting in a great shape.
