Many people are looking for the answer to getting fit, especially with spring around the corner, and they want to achieve this in the least time possible. The key to achieving the toned and sculpted new body is a strict diet, intense cardio training with a balance of resistance training. I have found that the Insanity workout by Shaun T offers the intense cardio with a balance of resistance training using your own body weight – which trust me, is plenty!
So what is the Insanity Workout?
Shaun T has come up with a new technique called Max Interval Training. I will explain it this way. Typically when you go on a 3 mile jog you run at a steady pace, and if you push yourself the last quarter mile you may try to sprint and finish strong. Well, Max Interval Training takes that theory and flips it upside down. Shaun T takes you on a “2.75 mile sprint” and the last .25 is meant to seal in the results and cool off. It is a completely different mindset than what is currently out there, but that is what makes the Insanity Workout so insane and GUARANTEES a total body transformation in only 60 days!
Who is Shaun T?
Shaun T is a fitness expert who has come out with other popular DVD workout programs. He is best known for his Hip Hop Abs workout DVD. This workout was an ab workout set to music and included dance moves as a part of the exercise. It is extremely popular and has sold many copies. Shaun T has been working on a full body workout program and he has released it in July 2009. This is the Insanity Workout.
Not For Beginners.
Insanity is not going to be a workout for beginners. If you are terribly out of shape, this workout is not going to be right for you. It is not a smart idea to overly exert yourself with a workout that is meant for people that are already in okay shape. Now I am not saying that everyone that is out of shape should not do the Insanity Workout, but I am saying that you need to make sure you are up for a difficult exercise. Even Shaun T himself says that Insanity is not for lazy people, nor is it for the weak minded.
Why be so hard on the workout?
You need to be educated in order to pick the workout that is going to best suite you. Insanity is a high energy, explosive workout that has brought a lot of people great success with their body, but that just does not mean it is for everyone.
Do your homework.
When you are ready to make the commitment to try a workout DVD, make sure that you do your homework and pick what is going to be right for you mentally and physically. There are a lot of options to choose from so educate yourself and pick what is right for you. Also, Shaun T does show some modifications to the moves to help keep up so don’t be a hero right out the gate! If you have to modify the moves in order to finish the workouts, then modify!
Go for it.
Lastly, it is important that you are exercising. Exercise will make you more healthy, help you sleep better, reduce stress in your life and make you fit. Do not just sit around and hope to someday start working out. Take action now and start working out! The hardest part is taking that first step! We all say “I’m going to workout!” or “I need to start working out.” But there is a difference in saying it and actually doing it! So instead of saying it, how about you make the choice right now and DO IT! Trust me, in 60 days, you won’t be regretting this decision!
