The Official INSANITY Support Thread

Recommended Posts

Great to find this thread.  FI and I started Insanity last month and stuck to it for the first few weeks, I then had a crazy week at work and missed 5 nights in a row ... haven't ever made it back :(  After reading some of your posts though I'm determined to get back on it so going to start again from week 1 this week - DIG DEEPER!!!!

Hey ladies. I'm assuming no one here is a personal trainer but I'm looking for popular opinion. I work out really hard regularly (2 to 3 times a week. 4 when I'm super motivated) and I just started Insanity. So far I'm not sore at all. I agree this is a hard work out. But from people who were already in pretty good shape, did you see a lot of results?

Hi DaynaBee, I was in the same boat as you. I had some leg soreness for a day or two when I first started, but not much more after that. Instead I found that my muscles were incredibly fatigued, especially be the end each week. (which makes sense since you are doing cardio, and not doing muscle loading exercises.) I still saw great results with fat loss though, so nothing to worry about if that's your goal! It's interesting to note though that I just started the month 2 DVDs, and I find that these workouts utilize strenght a lot more. This week my whole body hurts, upper and lower!

Hey oblaka, thanks for writing back! That's comforting. I am looking to loose weight. I am a little worried about losing muscle but I haven't been able to get this last 10-15 lbs off of me and it's time to try something new. I guess I can always put the muscle back on afterwards. I just read about the 2 month being way harder so I guess I'll see how I feel after that =)

 

I'm also wondering though. I'm not terribly flexible, and some of the exercises like the V push up I can't really do. I'm trying my best but there have been workouts I feel like I can't finish or I can't even do. Have other people run in to this and still seen good results?

There are def some of them I can't do, especially the v push up; I try to do reg push-ups or try to do variations of the v push-ups. I think that's the whole idea though; I love it cause in the videos you'll see people on Shaun t's team drop out and take a break, it's comforting to know we aren't the only ones struggling!

I so needed to read this thread. I bought insanity last year and it is just sitting there after I tried it and couldn't get past the warm up. I only need to lose 5 pounds but they are 5 very stubborn pounds. I have been eating healthy and working out but they wont go away. You ladies are motivating me to dust those Insanity off and start back. I seriously need to tone . . . my arms are super flabby. I think I will start AFTER thanksgiving:)

Losing muscle??? LOL!!! Your muscles will be working so hard, you will start hurting in places you never thought possible. You will definitely not lose muscle on insanity . . . trust me!

No workout regimen should result in your losing muscle. If this does occur it's the result of your diet, not the workout. The harder and more frequent the workouts, the higher your protein intake should be. 

 

In the event that you run into specific exercise that you can't complete just substitute the exercise for something comparable like TulumBride suggested.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
