insanity, anyone try it?

Holy cow...wife talked me into starting it and today was the first day and just the fitness test. What did I get myself into?

Hoping I can hang for the 60 days. I need to get in shape.

My wife and I did it. It will get you in shape. It isn't as bad after the first couple of weeks once you start to get used to it.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

I've watched my boy do it. I was exhausted.

Another day in paradise. God hunts on Sundays.

Day two in the books. Ouch. Climbing the two flights of stairs to get into my office this AM was quite the chore. Only 58 more days to got. Yee haa.......

It's my goal to be able to do it! I need to lose about 50lbs before I'm even going to attempt it though. It's my winter project for 2013-14.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Well, started the second week today. Going well other than eating the best that I can. Definitely feeling better, overall. Insanity is kicking my butt though.

How's it going? Still with it and noticing results?

I ordered Insanity and expect to get it sometime next week. I've been using www.nerdfitness.com as a starter hoping I won't be as sore when I start Insanity.

Re: insanity, anyone try it?

In the fifth week, recovery week, yeah, right,! Going good. Lost ten lbs so far, pants are way looser, can tell a difference looking in the mirror, feel so much better, my lower back doesn't hurt anymore...well worth the temporary pain so far. All that without really cutting back on food intake, just taking in better food. Still cheat on occasion but nothing too bad. Got to the point I feel guilty on the off days and I find myself hitting the treadmill for 3 to 4 miles and doing some push-ups and curls.

I'll report back when the max intervals start in 5 days. From what I read, the real pain will start then. Longer workouts, longer intervals and less rest period between intervals.

How long are the workouts in the first month? How long are they in the 2nd?
