1st time through Insanity--pausing DVDs?
1st time through Insanity--pausing DVDs?

Ok--wanted to see if anyone else going through their first round of Insanity has had to pause some of the DVD's in order to make it through---especially during the "killer" 15 minutes of Pure Cardio. I just finished week two and am feeling good and motivated, but can't get through Pure Cardio without stopping. Anyone else have the same issue?

Thanks

Taking a break is okay in Insanity. It is purely up to you if you want to pause though. If you watch the video you'll see the robots taking breaks all the time. When Shaun T goes traveling around to check on form he's taking a break. In month 2 he even tells people to go take a break. Then he looks at the camera and says that a break can fix you. Just do what you can do and push yourself. If you have to take a break it's not a big deal. Jump back in at a point where you feel comfortable. Working out isn't about being able to do everything at a comfortable level though so the more you do, the better you get.

Good luck!

Just let it run. You will get better in no time. I did 2 rounds (4 months) of Insanity, and I still had to take breaks, but they got less frequent, and much shorter. Chalean Extreme seems like a walk in the park compared to Insanity, so I add "Fast & Furious" to my schedule when I am missing the "Insane Feeling!"

I had to pause Pure Cardio for the first 2 weeks, then I realized I could get through it.

Thanks everyone--just did another session of Pure Cardio and only had to stop twice. It's getting better : - )
