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 Worksheets that I created.

Another popular request is the Insanity Workout Calendar. No problem. Download the Insanity Calendar. Also if you are wondering how to add the deluxe workouts then pay particular attention to the statement at the bottom of this Insanity calendar download. It gives you a couple of ideas on how to use the deluxe DVDs.

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 bamadude 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!

Hello and good morning!

Man oh man, I just finished day two of Insanity. This workout SUCKED. I actually found myself yelling out "this workout sucks".

I am not one for excuses! I promise! In the Army they used to say "the maximum effective range of an excuse is ZERO!" I believe that.

However right now somethings are just a reality. For this workout today I actually did about 25 minutes of work. Too much resting I know. Some of the moves really psych me out.

Power Jumps......
any kind of push ups......

But I feel like I did well with the rest. When I was done I felt like crying.....I was not sure if I pushed myself hard enough......(these two are complete opposites so I guess I have mixed emotions about my performance!)

This morning for breakfast I ate 3 eggs scrambled and added a little bit of bacon bits, cheese and turkey breast. It came to 270 calories. I am not an egg person so putting some other things in them helps to get them down. I don't hate them but I don't love them either. I forgot I have a meal replacement that I got from GNC, I only have enough left for today but I hope to be able to buy some more soon.....

One thing I AM NOT IS A QUITTER! I finish every thing I start!

I am excited to be part of Steve's team! I am excited to get this done and see how much I can achieve by DEC when I hit 60 days!

Thanks Tracy, it's good to be here! I know when I first started TurboFire I thought I would DIE the first week or so, but it's really amazing how quickly your body changes when you're working out six days a week.

Great to see you on the thread ebrotnov...I always feel great the rest of the day after I work out in the morning, and it also helps me control my eating. No way I'm going to undo a great workout!

Hi Everyone!

I started Insanity today doing the fit test. My goal is to get fit and use my body to its fullest potential. I've tried starting workout programs in the past and have quit part way through. I'm really trying to stick it out this time so I can get the results I want! You guys seem great and motivational!
