Shaun T rocked the world when he released the Insanity Workout, a 2 month blast of extreme interval training that took you from zero to [...]
The Insanity Workout is billed as an extreme workout. It's meant to challenge even the most conditioned of top level athletes, meant to push people who are already incredibly fit and healthy to new extremes. The videos show terribly athletic people collapsing in pools of sweat as Shaun T urges them to go just a little further. Does this mean that the Insanity Workout is for nobody but the physical elite? Can somebody climb off the couch and give it a shot? The answer is simple: anybody can do Insanity. Read on to see how.
The Insanity Workout is a comprehensive program that is composed of 10 Workouts on 10 DVD's. The workouts come with a comprehensive Nutrition Guide, and are meant to be done six days / week for two months straight. However, I frequently get questions about whether people can do the Insanity Workout only a few days / week, whether that will still 'work', or if it's worth even doing if they can't do the full program. I'm going to try and clarify a few doubts and misconceptions here, and hopefully set you guys straight!
Want to piss of Shaun T? I'd advise against it. Not only is the man large and heavily muscled, but he's also really, really fast. The quickest way to get in trouble with him is to buy your INSANITY Workout from pirates and counterfeiters. How can you tell who's a counterfeiter? Easy. ANYBODY selling for less than the full price of $119.89 is ripping off Shaun T, ripping off Beachbody, and lowering the chances that not only will Shaun T continue to produce excellent products, but that he'll get rewarded for the excellent work he's already done.
The Insanity Workout is almost complete. It's almost everything you need to effect a total body transformation in only 2 months. Including a fantastic Nutrition Plan, a host of workouts that will make you a new person if they don't break you, a wall Calendar to track your workouts, an online support community and all the information you need to begin your incredible journey, it seems like a galaxy of support and encouragement and challenge. But there's a crucial component missing. There's something that people notice a couple of weeks in, something without which leads to increased soreness, increased pain, and makes the workout harder than it needs to be. What's this crucial component? Don't laugh folks, I've received endless complaints from people who have noticed this deficiency: calf stretches.
INSANITY has exploded into the fitness world. Everybody is trying it out, trying to get ripped, trying to make it through those sixty days. Nobody can make 15 minute's worth of exercise as excruciating and painful and amazingly awesome as Shaun T, and the number of people trying INSANITY can attest to that. But what about the man himself? Does Shaun T really motivate people to get moving, or is he just a guy with some fancy moves and an annoying attitude? If you're going to be spending an hour a day with him, it helps if he doesn't drive you crazy. So--in this post we'll take a look at Shaun T, and ask--does he have the goods?
You know it’s bad news when ShaunT tells you he’s worried about the upcoming work out. Like he’s thought it out on paper, put the drills together, but now that the moment has come he’s no longer sure that it’s humanly possible to do everything he’s planned out. Which, when you think about how hard the other INSANITY workouts are, is definitely something to worry about.
For the past couple weeks I have been asked this question repeatedly: P90X or Insanity Workout? Which one should I get? So let me go ahead and share my point of view.
