Insane in the Brain Asylum Oct 1
insanity 1st day of insanity asylum 1st time asylum
9/28/12 10:23 AM
Hey Everyone,

I'm trying to put together an accountability group starting oct 1, all programs are welcomed! I know it's VERY last minute, but I am starting my first round of Asylum on Monday and I know how well that these type of groups do. I just finished 60 days of Insanity for the second time and P90X2 with an accountability group and ALL of us had great results. So I decided that I wanted to keep going.

Who this group is perfect for:
- People who have been wanting to get back into Insanity, but haven't had the motivation
- People who are trying Insanity for the FIRST time (like myself)

Nutrition and Supplements:
Follow the meal Plan, nutrition is key to success. Shakeology is a great resource to ensure that your nutrition benefits are met and your body is fueled with all the nutrition it needs. I love P90X results and recovery, it helped me dramatically and ensured my muscles where able to keep up with the workout. Energy and Endurance, gave me the edge that i needed to continue and push myself harder and faster.

Equipment:
If you are using P90X or P90X2 some bands are key to getting the most of this workouts, they can even replace the need for a pull up bar. For insanity and Asylum, check your surface if you have a hard surface, you may need a mat for those crazy plyo workouts.

Motivation:
I am here to motivate you and the rest of the group. Post your questions and see if we can get you some answers. Believe it or not, Before and After pictures are crucial, when even you don't think you are seeing results the pictures will let you see how you are doing. Survive the first week, it is the hardest part of the workout and after that hard youll see how it becomes easier and you can do more.

Let's get it started right. Limited spots are available, as these groups usually work best with a small amount of people so you can get to know each other. It does require a Facebook account because that's how we'll connect, chat about workouts, ask questions, and eventually, congratulate people on results! We have a group page so hit me up if you are interested.

Like I said, I just finished Insanity/P90X2. I lost 45 lbs and gained some noticable muscle, but I want to keep going. If you're looking for Johnny Six-Pack abs that has a Masters Degree in nutrition and fitness, that's unfortunately not me... (yet?? ;)) But if you think you could benefit from the experiences and motivation from another first timer, definitely consider joining!

Thanks!
-Alex

Aw man it is actually really hard. I was surprised how long it took me to Abe able to do some of the moves I spent maybe two hours or so before I could even remotely do a lot of the moves comfortably. I still cant do a couple of em tho

Very nice man, cant wait to get to your level, as in Insanity once I get comfortable with the moves I will be able to push myself harder and longer.

Hey - can I join?! Is there room for girls in this Asylum?

I did day one today - Speed and Agility. It was hard but I wasn't totally wiped out from it. My knees feel it a bit though now.

Catch you later, Giggle 78
