Insanity: 60 Day Total Body Conditioning Program
It is all the rave in the fitness industry. More and more people are talking about the Insanity workout. But what exactly is it? Is it effective or just one of the fads that will eventually die down? Here, you will learn more about the workout and its benefits.
From the same makers of the very popular P90X, Insanity workout is a fitness program in a DVD. There are 10 Insanity workout discs with the everyday workout. All 60 days of crazy training that intensifies each time.
The best thing about this workout is that there are no weights needed and everything can be done in the comforts of your own home where you can focus on all the moves to be done without the fear of embarrassment.
What exactly is this Program?
The DVD follows a 60-day cardio workout. This is not a normal workout though. Take it from the name itself, Insanity. It will drive you insane and push you to the limits. Expect the first few days to be the extremely difficult because your body will be adjusting to all the hard work but Shaun T, your Personal Trainer, will push you and help you achieve the weight loss the program is promising.
The whole program is having 3 full minutes of high intensity workout then a 30 seconds rest time. Every workout keeps you challenged. 30 seconds is not nearly enough to recover from the breathtaking anaerobic and aerobic intervals that are performed at your maximum level.
Insanity is divided into two stages. The first 30 days is focused on 6 cardio workouts a week and the last 30 days the workouts intensifies and increases. Though this Intensity program has proven a lot of good results, it’s not necessarily so for everybody.
Fitness blogger Marissa Brassfield said that it reminded her of her training days as an athlete. If you are someone who prefers low-key exercise, then this program might not be appealing to you, which
would mean that you’ll likely quit in no time.
But it is still worth a shot. It will kick your butt, no doubt about that. If you are patient and you work hard until the end, then your once flabby body will turn rock hard. Inches off your waist and pounds off your weight.
Here are Some of the Workouts You Will Encounter on the DVD
Jumping jacks – this is an exercise move that almost everyone is familiar with. It’s physically jumping with your legs spread wide and hands touching over head repeatedly. The intensity can be increased by jumping faster.
Heisman- this cardio exercise targets the legs and the butt. By standing with your feet together and torso a bit forward, you raise your right knee above your navel then jump to the left knee and life it above your navel. This is done repeatedly.
Mountain climbers – this aerobics exercise is particularly challenging. Place both hands on the floor and do a plank pose. Then position one leg forward bent under body and extend other leg back. Alternate leg positions. It would seem sort of like you are climbing up a mountain but done in a faster pace.
