Is the insanity workout safe for women?

One may ask himself or herself, what is insanity? Insanity is a workout that involves extrenous activities and practices all brought together for different kind of goals. One may practise insanity workout for weight loss, burning calories, extra muscle build up and also for the general good health of the body. Insanity work outs involves one doing extrenous activities for a during of time like 4 minutes continously but having a break for a much lesser time, lets say for 30 seconds. Insanity work uts are very popular with athletes because they help them have stamina. Insanity work out involves one pushing his or her body to the maximum limit it can go. The more you push your body to the limit, the more you feel like going on further.

Insanity Women reviewsAccording to me, insanity works outs are best suited for women. For many years women the victims weight gain, poor health and unfitness due to less practice exercises they pertake. I am not disciminating any gender but research has shown that 7 of 10 women are not comfortable with their weight and they would like to reduce their body weight. The remaining 3 percent of women would like to retain their weight or increase their weight. Let me further convince you why women need insanity work outs than men. Women need to be very healthy when they are planning to get a baby. A woman who is not healthy will generate a lot of complications when giving birth. Unhealthy pregnant women are at riskof developing high bood pressure and heart attack. This will obviously endanger the life of the mother and the life of the child. A pregnant woman is recommended to do some exercises which should not be extrenous as extrenous exercises can increase the risk of miscarriage.

I recommend women to practice insanity work outs are they help kep their bodies in good shapes. There are misunderstandings that insanity work outs are for those women who would like to be model, at some degree this statement is true but i can not agree with it wholly because insanity work outs are designed for physical fitness of the human body. Again and again research have shown that women who have regular insanity works enjoy a wide variety of health benefits. Some of the benefits that women are;improved mental health, reduced back pains and arthritis, reduced risk of diabetes.

Studies have shown that women who have regular insanity workouts usually have good attitude towards dealing with life difficulties. Women hwho have work outs are also able to manage stress more better than those who don’t.

Insanity Vs. P90X-Which One is Tougher?

On one side you have Shaun T and his Insanity crew, leaping and lunging and sweating and doing football drills non-stop in their basketball gym. On the other side you have Tony Horton and his test group, drilling each muscle group at a brutal rate, practicing kempo and yoga, lifting weights and doing pull ups. Both are billed as extreme, both are said to be the most intense work out ever put on DVD-but which is really the toughest? If you want the ultimate challenge, which should you do?

First let’s try to define by what we mean when we say the ‘toughest’. For the sake of this article, we’re going to define it as requiring the most physical preparation beforehand, the most willpower and dedication to complete the entirety of the program, and the highest sustained intensity during the workout itself. Some disclaimers: different people might find each of these workouts easier or harder depending on their own strengths. So while Insanity might be incredibly hard for a weight lifter, it will be easier for someone in track and field. Keep that in mind!

Let’s take a look at each program. P90X is a three month program. It’s designed to be implemented in three phases, with the end of each phase/month involving a cool down week during which your body is meant to recover from the ‘muscle confusion’ that the change in workouts is meant to deliver. There are 12 workouts, and they range from resistance workouts for the major muscle groups to cardio/plyometrics to kempo/yoga/stretching and core. It’s a total body workout, and is meant to be practiced six days a week. The workouts can range from 45 minutes to an hour and a half, and require that you own weights, resistance bands and/or a pull up bar.

Insanity is simpler. Designed to be accomplished in 60 days, it’s broken into two main phases, with the second being the ‘MAX’ phase where the workouts become even more intense and an intermediary week in-between where you focus on Core Cardio and Balance for 6 days in a row, a period Shaun T calls ‘Recovery Week’. The workouts are a combination of cardio, plyometrics, calisthenics and different sports drills. There are 10 workouts, and they range from about 45 minutes to over an hour. No equipment is needed, since you use your own body weight throughout.

Which requires the greater physical preparation going in? Insanity. The Insanity workouts start at an incredibly intense pace, and don’t let up. Even the warm-ups are brutal, and if you don’t have that base line conditioning you simply won’t be able to keep up. Further, you need to ensure that your joints are resilient and flexible going in; if they’re not, the constant pounding that six days/week of jumping, squatting, jogging on the spot and more will simply wear them out. P90X is also incredibly tough, but the bar to enter isn’t as high; you can start in a lower state of preparation, and work your way up over the course of the three months.

Which requires the most will power to complete the entire program? P90X. Three months of sustained extreme effort is incredibly draining. Not only that, but most people find Insanity to be more of a rush; Shaun T is incredibly motivating, and the sheer pace of the program keeps people going on overdrive. Tony Horton breaks up the P90X pace with such slower, more grueling workouts like the hour and a half yoga. The longer, slower pace of P90X requires more willpower to adhere to than Insanity.

Finally, which has the most intense workouts? This one is a toss-up. Try getting through a Max Cardio session of Insanity, or keeping up with Tony during the entirety of a Chest & Back workout. Both of these are brutal, and your level of dedication and how hard you push yourself will determine how intense your workout is.

So which is tougher? For my money, I’d say Insanity. However, P90X is probably harder to complete, and both will kick your butt from here to Sunday if you do them right. In a way, this is like asking, which will kill you faster, a tiger or a lion? Determine what your goals are, and then pick the right program. For maximum cardio/calisthenics development, go for Insanity. If you’re looking to bulk up some as well as get in shape, go for P90X. Either way, good luck. You’re going to need it.

Insanity workout review women

Insanity workout review women 2Andy Blair, Houston: The insanity workout really is insanity relived. It makes you sweat out the extra fat. At first, I was finding it quite strenuous but then I realized that it was doing good to tone my body then I really started liking it.
The max interval sessions were the most strenuous ones but the results were excellent. The first DVD has a fitness test, which makes you realise what goals you are looking at and what target you should achieve. Overall, the Insanity Workout is one of the best fitness programmes in a long time.

Insanity workout review womenAngela Croft, Washington: When I joined the Insanity workout, I felt like I would never go after finishing my first month’s workout. however after the first 10 days I started feeling the changes in me and believe me it was so encouraging and uplifting that I became a hard core fan of the Insanity workout and today I wonder how would I have managed to be fit without this awesome workout regime.                                    Thanks Insanity…

Sneha Kesavan, New Jersey: I was very enthusiastic about the Insanity workout regime. I started enjoying every bit of it for the first month. After a month, things seemed to go out of hand, as they really stepped up the exercises. This was beyond my control and I thought of quitting. After quitting, I have realised that building muscles in a short period is not possible. It takes long strenuous months to follow the regime and to co-ordinate with the instructors. Hence, I have decided to go for it once again as these workouts maybe strenuous but they really deliver what they preach. Here I come, Insanity.

Insanity workout review man

Tom Burton, New Jersey
Insanity workout review manThe Insanity workout is a fitness regime, which is divided into DVD’s. The first five DVD’s comprise of Fitness tests, Cardio Power & resistance and other cardio exercises. These can be covered in a month’s time and you will start to see the difference in the first month itself.
The best part is that it is not necessary to be with the trainers, you can rest and take your time to rest. Then results come when you really strive and follow the instructors.

John Bernard, New York
After having tried many workouts, the Insanity workout seems to be catching up with me. You build up your muscles but you need to catch up with the instructors, which I am trying seriously. Insanity workouts have proven to be the best experience for me.

Thomas N, New York
Insanity workout review manInsanity has a workout plan and a dietary plan. I decided to try the diet plan. It seems to be beneficial advice and yet it is simple too. The meals should be rich in vegetables and proteins, which sure is a good reason to stick to the plans.
Ideas for smoothies are quite interesting and made me go for them. I enjoyed keeping up with the dietary regime provided by the insanity workouts as a bonus. If the diet is strictly followed along with workouts then the results are fantabulous.
