'Teen Mom' Briana Dejesus' New Fitness Routine Is So Intense I’m Sweating Just Hearing About It

GossipMonger 3

briana dejesusWhen it comes to Teen Mom stars getting on their fitness game, we've seen some seriously impressive transformations post-baby. I mean, did you check out Catelynn Lowell's slammin' bod last year? Well, now Teen Mom 3's Briana Dejesus is kicking up her workout game a notch by trying something new (and super hard): the Insanity workout. The Teen Mom star tweeted that her first day of the workout was crazy, saying she never sweated so much in her entire life. Mmmm, sounds fun!

What's Insanity all about? It's a max interval training program where users work out strenuously for 3 to 4 minutes, take a 30-second break, then repeat. Supposedly, it's all about upping your core strength.

It's great that Briana is buckling down and getting serious about getting in shape. However, this is going to take a LOT of effort. Just like any other exercise program, she's going to have to stay dedicated, which is easier said than done when you wake up the next day with screaming muscles!

That's something that's hard to cope with for so many of us: getting healthy and working on your fitness isn't something that's going to just happen overnight. Sure, we may all want results right here and now. The truth? It's not realistic. If you're dedicated to your cause, then the trick is believing that you can do it and setting smaller, easier goals. 

Who knows, maybe Briana wants to lose 10 pounds. If that's the case, then setting smaller goals will help her along her way. Once she loses two pounds, for example, she should treat herself to a manicure. Five pounds? Hello movie trip with her little Nova Star.

The secret? Stay focused, but don't be too too hard on yourself. You're only human and workouts similar to the one that Briana is doing -- they aren't easy. Soon enough you'll see the kind of results that make it all pay off.

Have you ever tried an intense workout program like Insanity? What made you stay focused?

I'd probably drop dead 2 minutes in. Sweatin to the Oldies is more my speed. Good luck to her.

I'm actually 4 weeks into insanity. The first week is the hardest part. If you can get through that it's smooth sailing from there. All I tell myself to stay motivated is "it's only 40 minutes" there is a 5 minute warm up and cool down, so really 30 minutes. I actually look better than I did pre-pregnancy and still have a month left! We are women, we are strong, we can conquer anything :)

You make it sound like these exercises are too difficult to try. Ladies shouldn't feel discouraged to try Insanity after reading this. Healthy eating and exercise are important and it's especially important to teach Nova. My friend is very obese and she's now on day 4 of Insanity. You do the workouts to the best of your ability and eventually your ability will be on par with the trainers on the program!
