Equipment for Asylum?
Equipment for Asylum?
11/24/12 12:15 PM
Hi Guys!

I'm half way through Insanity and seriously considering doing Asylum after the 60 days. The problem is that I'm struggling to find any information on the equipment I will need for Asylum Vol1. I understand that a agility ladder and rope comes with the DVD's but will I need any additional equipment?

Thanks in advance!

Hi! Great job getting through 1/2 of Insanity. How are you liking it? For Asylum you need some free weights and ideally a pull-up bar. You can use bands and/or weights instead instead of the pull-ups on the bar. When do you plan to start?

Happy to help with any questions!
Cheers,
Christina

Thank you for your reply, Christina. That's really helpful. I started month 2 yesterday and it kicked my ass. It was a shock as I've kept up with Insanity so far (more or less) and have lost 16lbs but I think this is where i'm gonna really have to dig deep!

Thanks again!

Yeah, I agree with the above reply, that's exactly what you need for Asylum. Great results from month 1 btw! That's impressive! I remember being a little surprised at the intensity of month 2, but that should keep the results coming. Do you have an overall goal you want to reach by the end of your round of Insanity?

I'm actually just about to finish up Asylum Volume 2 myself, and if you like Insanity I think you'd love Asylum volumes 1 & 2.

Sorry to hijack your thread but I may do asylum after i start insanity in January and was wondering are there a lot of exercises with the jump rump. I have low ceilings and it might be a pain in the butt to jump rope in my basement.

You do use the jump rope quite often but there are people on the video working out without the jump rope.

I have low ceilings in my basement too, so I just did all the jump rope drills with an imaginary one! It was enough of a challenge without it, so you should be fine. I highly recommend Asylum. If you cut out dairy like Shaun recommends, you will see some incredible results.

I too did the jump rope drills without the rope, I have a ceiling fan in the way! Worked well for me emoticon
