I received my copy of Insanity upon it’s release in August and began doing the workout with my 10 yr old son. From the first Fit Test, I was in shock! Even the Fit Test was a crazy-intense workout!!!
I managed to get through every single workout in the rotation (even though I felt like I would DIE!) and was very pleased with the results I was getting. I seemed to be able to do more reps and last longer every time I would do a workout again and two weeks into my rotation, I made great improvements (I’ll have to find the results and post those). Austin was able to do the workouts with me and went from being having a little bit of a potbelly (don’t tell him I said that!!!) to having a 6-pack in only 3 WEEKS!!!! I’ll try to find his fit test results too but his improvements were like mine. This is a boy who went from barely being able to do pushups to doing 23 Jack Pushups in less than a minute!!!
Here was the one problem I had with Insanity, and this won’t apply to everyone, due to my scoliosis (curvature of the spine) I started to have issues with my back. Twice I actually hit the floor when my back muscles spasmed. So here’s the warning: IF you have back issues, this is NOT the workout for you! IF you have issues with the joints in your lower body (hips, knees, ankles), this is NOT the workout for you. IF you are unable to do high impact exercises often due to injuries, this is NOT the workout for you.
Although I was happy with the results I got, I was suffering too many back issues due to the daily high impact plyometric workouts. Had they not been daily high impact workouts, then I could have proceeded with the rotation. HOWEVER, after allowing my back to recouperate, I have been able to get back to a “modified” rotation where I can do the workouts but allow my back a day between to loosen up.
If you are ready to get as fit and lean as you possibly can, Insanity will do that for you!!! Just be prepared to feel like you’re going to die with each workout. Your endurance will increase so quickly you won’t believe the changes!!!
UPDATE: The release of Insanity, previously set for June 2009, has been pushed back by a few weeks to July 2009! I have tried the preview workouts (Plyometric Cardio Circuit) and will say that it nearly KILLED ME!!! I was hurting in just the warmup! This is going to be well worth the wait – it’s going to be INTENSE!
