Default insanity.

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone has tried insanity. I weigh started at 182b I'm now 152 lb and want to get down to 129lb. I was tinking of doing the insanity workouts but reading the diet there's an awful lot of meals to prepare each day and don't think id have the time for all that.

Has anyone else tried it without the diet and did they lose weight. I plan on eating healthy and limiting carbs to 3 to 4 portions a day. not sure if i could manage with any less.

thanks
(first time to post on this so hope its in the right place)

It's a tough program and the dvd's are long (anywhere from 50-65 minutes for each workout)...if you have time to do it each day, it's worth it...I'm hearing really good things about P90x3. 30 minutes for each workout.

Insanity is great but a hard workout but I would suggest T25, it works great and is easier. Here is a food routine hat works great: Protein, fruit, and veggie shake once a day. Lunch and Dinner: protein at least 3 oz. of chicken and either eggs or tuna or both, and a large side of veggies. This will help you lose weight.

I tried it a while back and I found it really difficult. I didn't do any diet though, I just tried to clean up my eating habits.

I would say that you shouldn't be too harsh on yourself if you fail one exercise or day. You'll need to be flexible. I often had to miss an exercise because something came up. Instead of giving up, I just pushed the whole workout back to make up for the day. So it took me a few extra days to complete, but the sense of accomplishment you'll have at the end will be worth pushing yourself through it.

I had problems with insanity.

Back when I lost 60lbs, I had a great gym routine going. I looked forward to it every day (literally it was the highlight of my crazy school life) and my day didn't feel complete without a workout.

I was heading into spring break at my lowest weight ever (185) and wanted to kick start my weight loss again to get over a plateau. So I started insanity.

AND IT WAS EFFING HARD.

I mean really, really hard! Keep in mind, I had lost 60lbs at this point and was working out pretty strenuously every single day. The first time I did the fit test I pushed myself so hard I thought I was going to throw up. But I decided to continue on through the rest of the program.

Now, this is where I messed up.

I started to dread working out. Rather than looking forward to the gym every day, I would DREAD having to do insanity. I mean really, really dread. I kept putting it off and putting it off. Even when I felt like working out and going to the gym, I didn't let myself because I didn't want to not do insanity. But then, of course, I'd put off insanity until it was too late in the day and then I'd just not work out at all.

My advice: borrow a copy from a friend and try it. If it's too hard, work your way up to it. I really should have stopped and built up more endurance so that I could start it and have it be more enjoyable instead of so difficult. Oh, and make sure you do it with a heart rate monitor!
