What's the best time to do insanity?
I have only done two days and i was wondering if 5pm is a good time to start doing it because i get home from school at 4pm.

Also how come i lost 22lbs (i was working out at the gym before deciding to try out insanity) and now when i do insanity it seems im stuck. (My weight was at 255 now at 233)

It doesn't matter too much when you do your workout. Morning is ideal but fit it where ever you can in your schedule. As long as you get a good meal in post workout and you don't go to bed within 3 hours of your last meal then you are good. As far as losing weight I'm not sure I understand exactly what you are asking. It sounds like you lost 22lbs in the 2 days you've done insanity? That doesn't seem possible but maybe you could elaborate?

There is no right or wrong time to do Insanity (or any other workouts). Some people will tell you the best time to do a workout is in the morning. Others will say the best time is in the evening or afternoon. Are both right? yes. Are both wrong? probably. The best time to workout is whatever time fits into your schedule.

As for your question about losing weight. My question would be how long did it take for you to lose the weight at the gym? Insanity is a great program but you can't expect miracles. Experts say the best way to lose weight is anywhere from 1-3 pounds per week. Of course the question will be raised of what your diet looks like.

I think different times work for different people. Like you, I get home from school around 4:30 or so and workout. This morning I did Max Recovery since my schedule was full this evening. I felt like I wasn't giving it my all. I am sure the reverse is true of others, so be it. Find the time that works for you as your schedule allows and try to stay consistent with the time. Best of Luck!
