Since I can’t run anymore, I’ve been having trouble with getting bored with my exercise routine.
I love to spin, but I refuse to pay for a gym membership. So, I have been trying out workout DVD’s.
Insight used to have free workouts On Demand, but that is gone now. I am still bummed about that!
When I first got hurt, I decided to keep up with my high intensity exercise, and I took on Shaun T’s Insanity program.
Let me just say, this program is NOT for the faint of heart or for a beginner. This was literally insane! I love it though. Whenever I need a good workout, I still pop in one of the videos.
It comes with a two sets of discs, a nutritional plan (which I didn’t follow), plus a workout planner/calendar. The first set of DVD’S are used for the first 30 days and then you move up to the second set.
I loved having the calendar tell me exactly what to do and not having to plan out a workout. Now, I understand the importance of weight training along with cardio, so I wish that there was more weight training involved.
There are push-ups, squats, and things like that but nothing that is going to really tone you up.
There is a 16 minute ab workout that Shaun T also includes, and it is great! Your abs will definitely be feeling the work!
This is just my two cents on Insanity. I am not a personal trainer. Please always consult your physician before trying any new workout program.
I quit doing Insanity a few months ago, because I felt like my body needed a break from the high intensity workouts. I had been looking for a new DVD set, and I finally found one to try out. Time to switch things up!
Have any of you tried Insanity? What is your favorite workout or workout DVD?
