The Insane Insanity Workout: Ready, Set, Gasp!


What does it take to have great workout session? Personally, I think someone needs to be there to tell you what to do in specific, someone shouting at you so that you don’t slack off and last but not the least, a sweat drenched body. Where I am going with this? You will know shortly.

I have been working out for a long long time now and there are days when the thought of going the gym just makes me sleepy. Extremely sleepy.  The idea of lifting weights, running on the treadmill and listening to crappy to gym music just deflates my motivation. But staying fit is also important. So last year I discovered the Insanity Workout. The Insanity Workout is an intensive, whole-body workout regime from the fitness experts at Beachbody.

And let me tell you, it aint for the weak hearted. If you think you are fit, try Insanity and let me know if the thought still sticks. I have been doing it for a while and every time before a session, I mentally prepare myself so that I don’t quit or faint. Heavily cardio based Insanity workout programme works at the basic lever of getting your heart rate up to burn calories.

Simply put, Insanity is a workout regimen similar to P90X in that it claims to improve fitness in 60 days through strenuous stamina training. Developed by Shaun T., Insanity’s advertising emphasizes “max interval training“, a method of exercising during which one works out strenuously for 3–4 minutes and then rests or “cools down” for approximately 30 seconds before starting the whole process over again. This is more intense than traditional interval training, during which participant’s alternate mild and strenuous exercise for roughly equal lengths of time.

Presenting below a glimpse of what the workout promises. As

for my verdict; it works  and if you manage to stick through the entire session with gasping, falling or fainting, I am sure the results will be even better.
