cardio power & resistance kicked my ass good

workout is pretty tough but it feels great when you finish! make sure you either do it on hardwood floor or cover your carpet cause you'll be drenched in sweat by the time you're done

I think p90x will show much better results since there are weights, pull ups and push ups involved as well as cardio. This just seems like it will make you skinny, not ripped.

Yea, that's what I thought too, but since I don't have much equipments at my house, Insanity seems like the best bet. I am already really skinny though, so I don't know how much this will help me...

I guess regardless if you choose p90 or Insanity, results varfy if you follow their meal plan by the book. I guess its meaningless to say that you will have no results if your current diet plan includes all-you-can eat sushi every week....but doing these excercises on daily basis.

Honestly you should just get a gym pass.. Just eat lots and workout you will see results faster than p90 or any beach body program out there

It might be just me, but I did this for a week, but noticed my knee joints were burning a little after every Insanity workout, so I stopped doing it and just stick to playing sports and hitting the gym.

Definitely recommend if you're trying to cut/ get defined, lose weight or get better cardio.

or if you're already in decent shape, skip straight to the second part of the program...

i should have done that b/c the first part didn't do anything for me in terms of losing weight/gaining muscle..

90% of the people in that video had a hideous body. These things take time and effort.. and this thing seems like a get-fit-quick scheme.

haha going onto day 6 for me, pretty solid so far and i wouldn't even bother wearing a top because you'll be drenched in sweat. But if you have a bad knee or ankle, i wouldn't recommend doing it.

I just finished day 30. 30 More to go.

At first I struggled with the warmups, but as time went by I got use to it. The work outs for the last few weeks look pretty tough.

imo think it would be better to join a good martial arts school were do tons of cardio and learn to fight at the same time

I agree with you here. But I just did laser eye surgery not too long ago and am not cleared to go back to muay thai yet. Therefore I decided to do the Insanity program and am about 4 weeks in.

For me, I don't care so much about losing/gaining weight or becoming ripped, I just want to maintain my power, endurance and explosiveness. The plyometrics in Insanity seemed the closest to the plyo's I was already doing in class
