Month 1 of Insanity complete. Any recommendations for recovery week?
Showing 11 results.
Month 1 was tough. Body finally adapting. Heart Rate has been consistently between 145-160, max heart rate is 180, during week 1-2 i was huffing and puffing at 170 bpms. Last week I noticed I consistently stayed between 150-160 bpms....not sure if this is due to cardio conditioning or adaptation since I feel I am going as hard as I can, still....also starting recovery week this Monday...any suggestions??? Already thinking about Asylum or what is next...maybe I should just focus on month 2. Open to any input. Current at 212lbs 5-11".....looking to get ripped... Still have a way to go....

Way to go! Stick with insanity and do the 2nd month. I personally thought the 2nd month was way harder then the first! Enjoy your recovery week. Your going to need it!

Yes enjoy recovery week because month 2 will once again be kicken your butt. emoticon I love planning ahead definately go for Asylum after you complete Insanity, it will take your conditioning to whole other level.....make sure to do them in order vol 1 then vol 2 then go for the 3 program hybrid of all the Insanity workouts. I'm doing the hybrid now and getting my butt whooped daily lol. If you ever have any questions feel free to ask, 'm always around emoticon

Yes. Trust the program is laid out the way it should be. Do the recovery week videos as prep for the next four weeks. You will see more improvement and results in the second four weeks. Just trust the process. Asylum will be good after Insanity too.

Yeah I would definitely focus on month 2 first. It's a whole new level of intensity compared to month 1. Recover well this week and prepare mentally for the new month. It will seem really hard at first, but you'll see your stamina improve greatly through the second month.

Asylum is always a good program to graduate to, but I think it's good to get a little into month 2 to see how you feel about it at that point.
