As Barbie says there is a lot of jumping but you push up from your feet and land softly again so it shouldn't be too bad. Plus it's less than one hour a day so unless you're planning to do it at 3am surely it'll be fine?
We're starting week four tomorrow. Pure Cardio followed by Cardio Abs. Looking forward to the abs again.
6lb off and 1.5 inches off my waist in the first two weeks. Now at the end of week three so not going to look for another week and we'll see then... I LOVE the ab work in the c-sit position. It's fab and I can really feel my muscles engaged the whole time.
Nice to see you're still going and that we're not hte only ones!
How are you doing Barbie? We're on day 12 now which means tomorrow we do the short but intense Pure Cardio AND Cardio Abs.
showtunesgirl there's loads of plank work so I"m not sure whether or not that's any good for separations? No sit up stuff as yet though but that could change with the Abs add-on tomorrow so I will report back.
Can anyone tell me how long the insaanity workouts last?
I worked with a PT last year and got in great shape from it but can't really afford it this year and also struggling with time to fit it in anyway so I was thinking of doing this instead. I work out most days in my lunch hour as well as doing evening activities so I'm wondering if this will fit into my lunchtime sessions?
I've found that I've lost the miscle tone that I built up with the PT very quickly
Haven't done it for two days now, this being day 2. All our family have been hit with a gastro bug. Two sick babies and 1 sick husband, I've had my exercise running around after them all day. Feeling slightly funny myself so really don't trust myself not to be sick if I do intense cardio!
While living in Dubai dh went along to a group called circuit factory, very much like insanity and he lost 39kg in about 4 months! When we relocated to France we soon realised that we would gave trouble due to not speaking French, the gyms are so expensive and to be honest I doubt we would of gone once the kids were asleep at 8pm.
The personal trainer is excellent, we train together (my dh and I) in the comfort of our own home. Regardless of whether we feel like doing it or not we have no choice when she turns up!
Dh was keen to incorporate a lot of the moves from the circuit factory since he ha such good results, so for most part the level of intensity matches that of circuit factory. Tough!
However dh found that once you stop something so intensive as insanity it is easy for lose the shape and put back on weight. So our trainer is making us do weight training, boxing, ab work etc.
The plan is to sculpt the body using the trainer and pilates an then strip the layers of fat revealing my new toned body underneath Well that's the plan anyhow
Must admit I'm aching this morning!
If you google insanity on you tube you can basically get the whole workout programme which we found after parting with the cash...
I've watched them, that any help? My DH has the DVDs and does Monday til' Thursday then his shift changes on a Friday and he has never managed to fit the workout around his shift, so he then gives up til' the next Monday. Even just doing the four days has made a huge change to his physique.
