Insanity Workout: Would You Try It?

Insanity Workout
Forget the 30 Day Shred and P90X.

The latest DVD workout everyone's talking about is called the Insanity Workout, and if these pictures are any indication, then SIGN ME UP.


Unless it hurts.

And um. By the looks of things, IT'S GONNA HURT.


I say this from some experience- I bought into the 30 Day Shred and after the first day I tried it, I walked like a sailor for the next three days.

If anything, the Insanity Workout looks even more painful- and with a name like Insanity Workout, I guess you'd sort of expect that to be the case, right?

Here are the ten "Insane" DVD workouts included in the program, according to

  • Dig Deeper & Fit Test: To start, Shaun will put your body to the test and see what you're made of. (30 minutes)
  • Plyometric Cardio Circuit: Burn fat with intervals of intense lower-body plyometrics and sweat-inducing cardio. (40 minutes)
  • Cardio Power & Resistance: Build lean muscle and upper-body definition with strength-training and power moves. (40 minutes)
  • Cardio Recovery & Max Recovery: Shaun goes easier on you once a week so you’ll be ready for the next round. (80 minutes)
  • Pure Cardio & Abs: Nonstop, extreme cardio workout. (40 minutes)
  • Cardio Abs: Do explosive intervals of cardio and core moves for rock-hard abs. (20 minutes)
  • Core Cardio & Balance: This workout lets you take a break after month 1 and gear up for month 2. (40 minutes)
  • Max Interval Circuit: With MAX Interval Training, this circuit is more intense than anything you've ever done before. (60 minutes)
  • Max Interval Plyo: Push your legs ‘til they beg for mercy with power and plyometrics, all at your MAX. (55 minutes)
  • Max Cardio Conditioning & Abs: Get pushed to your limit with this extreme cardio workout. (50 minutes)


The Insanity Workout kit also includes a nutrition guide and a calendar to track your progress.

And the price for this insanity?



Suddenly, this system is a lot harder to invest in than my $8 Shred DVD...

I'll put it to you, readers. Have you tried the Insanity Workout? Do you know someone else who has? Is it worth the dough?
