After 60 days of dedication and determination to stick to a fitness program, I can proudly say that I finally finished the “Insanity”! And boy was it tough!
The workouts in Insanity are focussed around maximum interval training. Their philosophy is to crank up your heart rate for 3 minutes and give you a 30 second rest (and there aren’t a whole lot of 30 second breaks in the entire 60 minute workout – maybe 3 to 4 only). Yes I know its brutal, but that is what gets you in the “best shape of your life”. They are not kidding in the informercials when they promise you the best shape ever.
The exercises are centered around plyometrics and fast cardio moves and the best part about the workout is – NO EQUIPMENT! Unlike many fitness programs, Insanity workouts just require your body weight and a strong will to keep going.
So change something around in the coming new year. Take up a fitness program, whatever suits your body, and do it. Apart from getting back to being college skinny, I was more proud of having stuck with the program and never surrendering. Thanks to my neighbor downstairs who finally gave up on complaining to the apartment manager about all the jumping and thumping. Her support meant alot to me 🙂 So if you can simply stay committed, you are half way there! Just take one day at a time and do the workout, no matter how much your body resists.
I would like to know about the workouts you guys have been working on, so that I could get some fitness tips from you guys. Please feel free to leave a comment and DIG DEEPER!
