This is great! I would love to document my progress  and see your results. I am going to start today as well. I am pretty sure my version is a bootleg version too because I got it for like $25 on ebay. Either that or I got a great deal!

I wish you luck on the program!

Good luck on the program! I started it a few weeks ago and love following other bees who are doing it as well for motivation!

@dovelovesfalcon:  Whoa, girl! I saw your post and was like, she has my body! I’m 5’6 and 135-138 depending on the day.

I did INSANITY for 6 weeks last year, and then gave up. But it really made a difference! The first week is hard. Effing hard. I wanted to die. But the following weeks were much better, and by the end of week 3 or 4 I felt toned, healthy, and had no trouble with the workouts. Don’t skip days on the calendar, and don’t do the wrong workout on the wrong day. They’re all strategically placed to help you get in the best shape possible. I will say, Cardio Power and Resistance is my favorite. It reminds me of the old cheerleading moves I used to do πŸ™‚

Cue month 2: I got through the first two weeks, and just couldn’t do it. I can give up 30-40 minutes a day, but the full hour was way too much. Plus, the workouts get harder!

Just started INSANITY again to get ready for the summer months, and I’ll probably just do month 1 twice. By then, I should be in good enough shape for month 2. It’s no joke!

Thanks for sharing your INSANE experience with us; I’ll be following in hopes to keep myself motivated this time around πŸ™‚

@dovelovesfalcon:  Well I improved when I took the fit test at two weeks! And I’ve lost almost four pounds. The biggest difference I’ve noticed is how my thought thighs look and feel. I didn’t take any measurements so this is completely unscientific but they are definitely less jiggly lol. Anyways, I do add in some arm work because I feel like I don’t get much of an arm workout with this.

 

I really can feel the difference. The first week I thought I was going top vomit during the workout. Now they are still hard but I feel good doing them (well as good as you can feel during insanity).

 

I started out only changing eating habits and lost a bunch of weight then hit a plateau and decided to try this after losing motivation going to the gym and running. I’m hoping after this to tackle P90x!

@MrsBeck:  I think INSANITY is harder than P-90X, so you might want to consider skipping that one. My boss does P90 and was convinced he could do INSANITY; so I let him borrow it πŸ™‚ He gave it back after a few days and said there was no way he could do it haha.

I think the one after INSANITY is called the Asylum? Maybe check that out!

@dovelovesfalcon:  PS forgot to mention that I also skip a day and only work out five days a week. It’s not necessarily that my muscles can’t handle it but I just need downtime after work more than one day a week.

@BeeandBeeBride27:  Thanks for the advice! I’ll definitely look into that! I want to make sure I keep moving once I finish insanity!

Hey girls!! Anymore progress updates?

I started this past Monday (5/6) since Sunday is designated as the “rest” day on the calendar. I felt so pathetic after the Fit Test!! My muscles have been sore the whole week lol. Tuesday and Wednesday were the worst though. Thursday they were still a little tight but not too bad. I did the Cardio Recovery and now my bum is uber sore haha. Stupid squats!

I definitely do not look forward to doing the workouts just yet but I always feel great afterwards. I sweat like crazy, way more than I ever did just running outside or on a treadmill. Some of the jumping exercises give me shin pain but, again, not nearly as bad as running outside!

Keep the updates coming and I’ll keep mine coming too!!

@dovelovesfalcon:  Hey girl – you still doing this?  I’m on week 4 right now and I’ve done pretty well – missed 3 or 4 workouts total, I think.  (PS – no way can anyone keep up with that crazy Tanya so don’t feel bad!)

Hey fellow Insanity ladies! I’m just on day 10! This thread seems a few months ago – did any of you get any results? Any before/after pics or tips? I’m going to give it the best I have but my motivation really goes in waves! 

I’m 5ft 7 and 135lb so similar to you. I dropped a bit of weight and got down to about 130 due to stress before my wedding in June but it soon crept back on my honeymoon so i’m trying not to be the-woman-who-got-married-and-piled-on-the-weight!
