What have I got myself in for? I have decided to try out the Insanity Workout DVD as after watching one infomercial I was sold and hooked. Some way and somehow I have got my hands of the dvd pack and I am now onto day three of the 60 day workout tonight.
I really should post a before and after pic but as of today I am too shy and embarrassed to put my slim Iranian body online. From the front page you can see my build (GIANT amongst mountains) but my main aim is to tone and get some definition on my body. I put it off for a week and now have finally started. The initial aim was to wake up every morning and do the work out for 35mins to 55mins, but has not happened as I just can't wake up. SO having started on Monday in the evenings straight after work I can say one thing, it is TOUGH.
I have struggled nicely and from the first few days I think I will continue to do so. This is what was sold to me so I shouldn't be surprised but it is very demanding physically and mentally you have to be strong. At times I feel everything tighten up and I end up doing the most feeble attempt at exercise ever but I still keep on going.
I could go over the plans for each day but this guy does a great job so check his site out: http://www.sharpefit.com/insanity-fit-test-review/. This test I am doing is based on the fact that I will not be following any rigorous diet or take any special supplements, so let's see what happens when the average man attempts this insane workout. The workouts are intense and done in sets of three but after each set you have to up the level and go faster and harder (that's what she said) than before. No weights are used and it is pure cardio but I feel that this will be very useful.
I have been doing the workout with my twin brother and we have been sweating loads. It is funny watching us both struggle and also seeing our girlfriends walk in and wondering 'why am I with him?'. As well as this, is our neighbour who is shocked by all the noise from are PowerJumps that she thought the roofers came round and when i let her know we were 'working out' she laughed.
I will try to keep you updated with progress and if I get the confidence I will put up some pictures.
Wish me luck.
