Insanity Max 30: Max out Strength review

Insanity Max 30: Max out Strength was hard but went by fast.

45 seconds on 15 seconds off. Starts with a 4 min warm up, exercises were 45 seconds each then lower body, then upper body and core (for about 20 mins) let's just say my arms are jello!  I had to modify a lot, but that is okay as it is room for improvement!  I definitely enjoyed the work out for my arms and core but WOW at how much I can improve.

I am looking forward to doing this one next week again to see how much better I do. I maxed out 7;26

Insanity Max 30: Max Out Sweat review

Insanity Max 30: Max Out Sweat  was hard.. very very hard.. I am not going to sugar coat this one. I was drenched, breathless, muscles were like rubber!

This one was more like the original Insanity minus stretching. You do your warm up, 3 exercises, 3 times. 1 min another exercise, then water break.  Then you move into the 3 circuits, which are set up the same way, 3 exercises (45 seconds each) repeat 3 times, 1 min bonus exercise, water break, then move on.  The last 20 seconds are cardio!

This one was tough and not my favorite. I think I maxed out at 7:09, which was a feat!  It is a great workout, just not fun exercises to me.  At one point you are doing a minute of tuck jumps with a dive pushup (yikes!)   I should be nice and sore tomorrow. I will be shocked if I am not. But I am excited to do tomorrows work out and a little afraid for Friday!

I pressed play and will do it again next Wednesday. That is all i can ask of myself. I pressed play and finished! If I can, you can too!

Have a very fit day!

Insanity Max 30: Max Out Cardio review

Insanity Max 30: Max Out Cardio

Month 2 begins with a BANG!  Shaun T.  brings in moves you have never seen before and some old school Insanity moves, as well. He also brings back circuits with 3 rounds of the exercises then water break. I maxed out 10:12 but was able to finish the entire thing. I even had my little helper who likes to get on my back during Pike up spider lunges, and lays under me during Plank punches, which helps me stay up in plank position.  I am sore today (did this review post the next day) not sore sore where I cannot move, but I can feel my core!  So I apparently worked that way more than I realized!

Once I maxed out, I stopped watching the clock, which helped me focus on me and the moves. I was able to finish the work out without needing to stop again. I am excited for month 2 and what it brings!

Insanity Max 30: Sweatfest review

Insanity Max 30: Sweatfest is a bonus dvd you get when you buy Insanity Max 30.

It was AWESOME!  All old school Insanity moves. You start off with a old school warm up, then you stretch.. a good stretch! then you go into your moves, 3 circuits but only 2 rounds per circuit, then plank punches at the end. It was fun to get to do some of my favorite work outs that I know work, as they have worked for me in the past.

Definitely a good video to through into the mix!

Insanity Max 30: Tabata Strength review

Insanity Max 30: Tabata Strength is a tough work out. 

My first time doing it I MAXED out at 7:43 the 2nd 11:08. This work out had a warm up, then you do 20 secs on 10 secs off, of each work out then move on. There are no water breaks in this work out, after the warm up. Your break is another work out. There are a lot of my favorite Old School Insanity moves in this one, which made it fun. Before you know it, the work out is over. You do lots of core work out, that is disguised as lower body or upper body, but do not be fooled, your core will get an amazing work out. 

This one definitely takes it up a notch from Tabata Power. Diamond Jump one legged burpees, then diamond jump burpees, then just diamond jumps, then in and out squats before moving on to about 10 mins of different push-ups.  I really enjoyed this work out. It was hard but I smiled the whole time!! It was nice seeing myself push through!  You end this with Chair holds. and ENTIRE minute of Chair holds

Great workout even with a little toddler adding resistance to some of the moves!
