So I have finally completed the first month of the Insantiy workout, albeit one day late. As mentioned in a previous post, I am doing the average Joe version; i.e - I'm still eating and drinking what I like. So after a week of breaks and catch up I completed the last day of month one. I am sooooo happy that I won't have to do those workouts again.
Insanity is intense and makes you sweat loads. Doing it in my living room is hard but I have seen some results. My body looks a lot tighter but not that great in order to take a picture and show you. I'm shy! The workouts haven't got any easier although they are repeated from week one to four and the reason is because you have to push yourself harder as you progress. That means I am doing more but in turn suffering all the same. I do look forward to the days off.
The scary thing is that I have a week of recovery which is still 6 days of sweating and then into month two. Now I have heard that month two is dangerous. I thought that the first month would prepare me but from reading reviews "I'm not ready" and more importantly "I am gonna get it" BAD.
My review of insanity so far is that it is really good and something to try. I am surprised I have managed to do one month and still expect to fail in the next month. The theory is obvious and simple, hard cardio exercise six days a week. If you do this without insanity you will see results. However, watching a trainer push you makes a big difference and helps wih the guidance too.
Wish me luck for the next month.
