The Start of Insanity

I’m not referring to how I’m going to feel in the next two weeks before spring break…I’m talking about the break-through fitness program that I begged my parents to get me for my last birthday that sat in my closet for a year. Well I’ve decided this spring is going to be different. I’ve been casually exercising for three months now in order to build up enough stamina to keep up with the program. Insanity is a 60 day program (yeah, just two months) that is said to be the hardest workout put on DVD.  If someone who weighs 160 plus pounds can push through their exhaustion and mental block for 45 minutes everyday and turn their fat to lean muscle, then I’m ready to hop on that train too. Insanity has you work flat out in three to five minute blocks and take breaks “only long enough to gulp some air and get right back to work”.

MONTH ONE (includes 5 max interval workouts)

  • PLYOMETRICS for insane legs and glutes
  • UPPER BODY RESISTANCE for upper arms, shoulders, chest and back 
  • PURE CARDIO for crazy fat burn
  • CARDIO ABS with intensive core work
  • RECOVERY gives your body a break after an “insane week”

MONTH TWO (includes 4 new workouts)

  • MAX INTERVAL CIRCUIT for toughest interval workout
  • MAX INTERVAL PLYO will have your legs crying for mercy
  • MAX CARDIO CONDITIONING for extreme cardio burn
  • MAX RECOVERY to build strength for a whole new round

After using the rather lengthy formula provided to figure out my necessary caloric intake to maintain weight loss goals, I concluded that I need 1,569 calories each day of this program. Because I paid a lot of money for the program, I won’t disclose the 30 some pages of food recipes provided but I will tell you that Shaun T. recommends eating 5 meals a day: breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch time, afternoon snack and dinner. If I send my before and after picture to the BeachBody Production company, I receive the official Insanity t-shirt with the “I earned it” slogan on the back. So keep an eye out for my results in two months!
