Day 2

Day 2 of Insanity and I'm amazed by my lack of coordination, strength and overall fitness! Why I would be so shocked is beyond me but there you have it. I literally struggled through todays routine - Plyometric Cardio Circuit - and literally had nothing left by the end BUT "I'm smiling cos I love it".
On the plus side, there can only be room for improvement - Shaun T you rock!

To anyone that is considering 'Insanity' but feel they won't be able to do it or that they're too overweight to do it I recommend giving it a go. Realistically I am 5 stone overweight (70lbs) and yes it is hard especially with asthma thrown in the mix, but I cannot tell you the sense of achievement you feel after each workout. Even when you have a rubbish workout and feel that you could have done better it doesn't put you off, in fact it makes you more determined to nail it the next time. I'm struggling with the workout at the moment but so is my daughter who is 20 years younger than me and extremely slim so it's not ageist, sexist nor weightist, you get out of it what you put into it and as you get fitter you'll be amazed by what you can achieve - moves that seemed impossible when you first started are suddenly much easier.
And if you're one of those people that hate home workouts because they're boring (as am I) then prepared to be addicted to this one.
Go for it!


  1. Hi Linda, You sound very enthusiastic. I'm sure that workout is hard! But results come faster with tough workouts. :D

  2. Insanity is great! Glad you enjoy it! I tried it a few years ago and really saw results. Its so convenient to be able to get a good workout in at home. :)

  3. How it going are you still doing it? i tried it once I made it threw the test for day 1 and day 2 i stopped half way threw disc 1 and felt like a failure I have been meaning to start back up but keep scary myself off
