*** IMPORTANT TIPS ***

Nutrition
• If you want to see great results, you have to focus on your nutrition as much as the workouts. Nutrition plays a key role in how you will reach your goals and attain the new and better you! Be prepared by getting a solid nutrition plan in place prior to starting. You can do this week-to-week or even plan out your entire month. Over time you will learn new eating habits that you can carry with you for the rest of your life.

Shakeology is a great way to meet all of your nutritional needs! As a meal or a snack it fuels your body with everything it needs in order to BRING IT everyday!

Track your progress
Where are you now? Where do you want to be? Have Goals!

• Nothing is more important or motivating than to see where you started and how you are progressing along the way! It is so CRUCIAL that you do the following BEFORE you begin:

• Take your Measurements
• Take your before & after pictures
• Take the fit test

I can’t tell you how many people on my previous threads told me they were so mad at themselves for not doing this before they started.

If you want the best results, if you want to maximize your results, not just in the Insanity Workout, but any fitness program, you MUST track your progress. You simply cannot get to where you want to be, unless you know where you’ve been, and that’s why you need the worksheets. You only get one set of Insanity worksheets when you purchase the program. People are finishing their 60 days, and are ready for round 2! Download the INSANITY fit test

Also utilize the tools that TBB provides. Complete your profile, and track your measurements and weight online. I use MyFitnessPal online to track my food diary as well as my calories burned each day. I would highly recommend signing up and add me as a buddy. My id is BumpusBurn. MFP also has apps for iPhone, Andriod, and Blackberry.

Pre-Workout

• These workouts are intense! The right fuel will help your body "Dig Deeper!!!" with the intensity you need! If you eat a pre-workout meal, is very important to wait about an hour before you work out. Eat too soon and you could end up losing the meal instead of bringing the intensity!

• If you workout first thing in the morning like I do you might want to skip eating and take a pre-fuel 15 minutes prior to working out. I drink about 1/3 of my recovery drink prior to working out. It gives me all the energy I need to complete the toughest workouts.

Post-Workout

Keep in mind the first week is exceptionally rough! Expect to be sore and tired: Do not give up! Your body will adapt quickly and in no time you will start seeing some crazy results. You may want to do a few non-dvd workouts prior to starting just to get your body & mind ready.

• Recovery: After an intense Insanity workout, it is vital to recover the right way. I cannot stress enough how important this is. By adding a recovery drink immediately after your workout, you will significantly decrease the amount of soreness you will experience while your body recovers. Intense exercise will burn off glycogen stores in the muscles which leaves the body without its primary source of energy. The longer you are in this state, the greater the chances your body will panic and may actually breakdown your existing muscle to create more glycogen—the exact opposite of what we are working for! Plus low blood sugar levels in the brain will lead to fatigue, irritability, lack of concentration, depression, etc. The Beachbody Recovery Drink will replenish your muscles with glycogen, you will not only avoid muscle breakdown, but you will promote muscle growth and keep your energy levels up. The Beachbody Recovery Drink is a great product and I highly recommend it.

• Accountability: Post your accountability DAILY on the message boards! This is the key to staying motivated. Here is an interesting statistic I’ve noticed over the past couple of threads I’ve been in. Out of all the people who join the thread and commit to the workouts, less than 20% will complete the full 60 day program! But what I found is, of those of post every day they are 90% likely to complete the program and transform their lives.

The message boards and forums are a great way to meet others that are going through exactly what you are and it helps stay accountable and motivated! Your forum buddies will have tips and information that has helped them and could help you as well. You will be doing the same in no time!

So ready to get started? First step, post your commitment to join the team, and second, add me as a buddy and I'll give you more important information. I look forward to getting to know you and seeing the new you!

Hey Justin, I am a 41 year old dad who needs to get back into shape. I have let my weight just creep up over the years since my son was born and it is time to do something about it. I decided to try insanity and see what happens.

It is amazing how such small people (kids) can make us go for some huge changes. I messaged you before seeing this post so it should answer my question. When I hear back via message I will send you all kinds of other questions and some helpful info to get the most out of the program. Just remember (AND this goes for everyone) Little steps toward your goals are the way you are going to get there, the only bad workout is the one not done, the only person you are trying to impress in yourself, and the only person you are competing against is the person in your head telling you that you can't do it. Let all dig deeper.

Would love to have you in the challenge group let me know via message if you are interested.

@Kyle, thanks for the shout out, you have truly been the P90X rock in our other thread!! Can't wait to see your after picture.

@Sarah, Congrats on the decision to start INSANITY and thanks for the kind words on the tips at the start of the page. I can't take all the credit much of it comes from what I have learned from my coach as losing 115 lbs. I accepted your buddy request and will be shooting you some info shortly. Welcome to the thread!!!!

UPDATE The group if filling fast, only a couple of spots left, let me know if you want in!!!! Lets do this together!

Insanity Revisited

Hi Coach

Long time no hear. I got lost. I completed the first two weeks of the max routines and they were hard, then I had a weeks holiday with the family that prevented me from carrying on. Work has been busy busy busy too so the max workouts did not fit into my daily schedule at that time.

I have had two weeks of revisiting the first phase of insanity picking and choosing whatever routine i fancied and I have loved it.

So, starting tomorrow I am starting Insanity all over again.

I found that in the first 5 weeks of starting insanity last time I lost 8lb in weight which made me feel awesome and I have started to get some good muscle definition but I still have a small amount of fat left on my abs that I would love dearly to shred.

So I would love to carry on with this new thread if that is at all possible.

What do you think of Rev Abs? As I need to aim my fat loss to a specific area would this routine be appropriate?

Andrew
