I just finished my 3rd week of the Insanity workout. I can totally relate to #2 on your list. Thanks for your article. I have to look at my goals more realistically and realize that this is not just a 60 day thing but a new lifesyle.
I started the Insanity workout about 5-6 weeks ago, hit a snag (in the form of a back ache, and had to get lower lumbar surgery). I am itching to get back to the workout, only if my PT says I can, once I am fully recovered. I only did Insanity for 2 weeks, and I actually saw marked improvement with my body and my stamina. I SO HOPE THAT MY PT SAYS I CAN DO INSANITY AGAIN. I have much more motiviation now that I NEED to loose weight so I can not have any more back problems (or at least make them as easy as I can). My husband and I started it together, and he fell off the band wagon to take care of me. He just started up again. Again, he saw marked improvement in the first 2 weeks. WE LOVE TO HATE SHAWN T, but the program works!!! Here’s to hoping I can return and earn that T shirt!!! Thanks SHAWN T and INSANITY!!!
I have started Shaun T. three times…. I am bound and determined to keep going even if life gets in the way! I have also ordered Turbo Fire and love it almost as much as Shaun T. I get bored very easy…. being type “A”…. so it’s more fun to look forward to the workouts if I can mix it up a bit! This is the first time I have EVER stuck to a routine at my house and not felt like I needed to go to the gym to get the results i’m looking for. Thanks for coming up with such a program! I think Shaun T. wants me to hate him but I refuse to! BRING IT…… <3
Only in my second week, I could give up but I take a look when I am in the mirror look that guy in the eye and for the first time I cannot see where I am going physically.
It is scary for a guy who has struggled his whole life who has settled for less than a healthy physical form. I used to see a body ideal that for me was not attainable – you know that NFL linebacker build..
Now my view has changed since washing out of p90x two times.. I learned that my core was weak and worked at 90 days worth of Hip Hop ABS with the hand weights to fix my core strength..
I now see through a haze a guy who I almost do not recognize and it makes me smile.
And when I am working through the workouts and getting gassed out less and less I smile and get my butt up and check my heartrate.
Like they say this workout is not for everyone – some will say it is too tough some will say I don’t really want to be too muscular.. i say bullshit… It is scary stuff when you are pushing hard everyday.
You lose sight of your physical reality and your self image starts to disappear and that freaks people out.
No body can make you get up out of that pool of sweat and find the strength to go on.. no one can make you do those extra stretches to loosen up later in the day. But just look at the faces of those people in the videos really close .. they are suffering just as much as you are and if that doesn’t force you to realize this is something else and is not to be taken lightly I don’t know what will.
This workout has forced me to let go of my self image and just keep going without any perceived limits.. I must say I do have a high pain threshold (thanks Mom) and that you do require some lunacy to get this done but I think I am crazy enough to complete this.
Thanks Shawn and Tony because once I complete this 60 day cycle I am going to go finish P90x with my new core and cardio.
Sorry if this sounds like a rant butI will be posting back at the end of week 6. Max? Max scares me ..
