Back in May, when my son Kyle asked me for my opinion on P90X, I quickly began doing the videos and loved them! Now beachbodies.com offers us the newest program, INSANITY. Thanks to Kyle, I was able to try the first video, yesterday. After just 2 or 3 minutes (or less) it was easy to see where the name came from. A name should fit like a glove and this one clearly does! My heart rate was up in a training zone just from the warm up, which by the way, I could not make it through……fast forward to the actual program and Shaun T. now has me doing circuits of high intensity aerobics, plyometrics, push-ups, dips and more. With short water breaks in between circuits, we repeat these moves at a faster and faster pace and this continues for about 30 minutes. Though there is NO cool down, there is approximately a 3 minute stretch at the end.
This morning my body is well aware that I did something new and different yesterday. Until I do more of the videos, it’s way too soon to decide if I would recommend this program or not. I do know, already, that it is NOT for a beginner! Wonderful for an athlete or for someone who is INSANE! I do not consider myself an athlete, yet can’t wait to check out the next video, so clearly I must be ………..INSANE! Check back soon, as I will continue to update as I check out more of these videos.
Have an awesome Saturday. Get out there and do something wonderful for your body and mind!
You made me smile with delight as I envisioned you and the INSANITY video. You are in such awesome shape. I would not even attempt something as intense as you mentioned. I love to exercise, but as I “age” I need to be cognizant of my limitations. I would probably not be able to move the next day if I attempted the INSANITY routine. I would be INSANE if I even thought about doing it!!!!
