Hello Everyone! I am planning on starting Insanity on Monday so I can officially follow the schedule. But my question was how do I record that exercise in my daily diary? When I searched for just insanity it said no results found.


You create the exercise under the My Exercise tab.. I use a HRM to determine how many calories I burn.

Today was day 6 of week 6 for me (first week of month 2). So happy to have a rest day tomorrow! To my surprise though I'm really liking the month 2 workouts. I was worried I was gonna be overwhelmed and feel like quitting, but they really aren't so terrible as I'd heard.

week 3 day 1 Fit Test I got my heart rate monitor over the weekend so I am able to count my calories, todays fit test burned 190 calories. my switch kicks +4, power jacks - 1, power knees + 3, power jumps decreased - 7 (???) globe jumps - 1, suicide jumps +2, push up jacks + 6, low plank oblique +16. I am hoping the minus numbers are because I am using more muscle with better technique on each individual rep or maybe just having an off day. Either way I feel good and I think i will go straight into an 6k ride so I get to eat more calories today to have more power for tomorrows workout. Anyone else have any concerns with decreased numbers on fit test?

Just finished my fourth fit test. I improved on everything, some more than double! I'm proud of myself. :D

I'm restarting week 2 today. I got halfway through last week and then **** kept me from getting home till 11pm. I almost actually did go ahead and exercise but since I get up at 5:30 am for work I decided sleep was more important. Ah well. It just means I'm a week behind my initial end date.

Whoops, i haven't updated here in a while! I'm still chugging along, day 2 of recovery week for me. I'm really excited to get into the next set of exercises, but i'm going by the calendar, so sticking with recovery week. I've not lost any weight yet, which is kind of freaking me out, but I'm being mindful of the changes I see in the mirror, and the inches lost.

Day 5 week 2 complete...just one more day to finish week 2!!! drinker

I can't wait to measure and take some new pics to see what the first two weeks produced. I have to admit though that I have not been eating half as well as I should but I plan to fix that quick so that I can really get the most out of this program.

Realise tonight that my right knee is not feeling so good...anyone have tips on how to deal with knee pains? I really want to push through and do the program to the end but I don't want to bust my knees cry

I've had this happen a couple of times, usually a nice warm bath and massaging my calves and knee would help a lot. Could it be a form thing? Once I started 100% keeping my knees soft during the moves and making sure to land on my forefoot instead of heel or flatfooted when jumping I stopped having any issues with my knee.

Edited to add:
Here's a basic article on landing: http://www.livestrong.com/article/189322-how-to-land-when-jumping/

I have to keep on reminding myself that inches loss is everything, scales arent that important. Ive gone up on the scales but trying not to get discouraged. I'm going to give it a full month before attempting to chang anything.

Week 1, Day 2 for me! As promised, insane. haha And I'm feeling the soreness. No doubt. Question... anyone tried Muscle Milk to help with the rebuilding and soreness of the muscles?

I did the P90X, Turbofire, Insanity, Tap Out at home but could NEVER see any change! Out of desperation I signed up for a boot camp. In the first 2 weeks (6 sessions) I had lost an inch in each thigh, an inch in my waist and an inch in my hips. After the 2nd two weeks the results were almost the same....so in a month I've lost nearly 6 inches. My weight has stayed the same (weird) but I don't really care about that so much. I still do the Beachbody workouts 3 days a week for cardio. I don't know why the boot camp works....maybe it's the group environment that makes me push myself just a little bit harder. Or maybe my body had plateaued on Beachbody. Whatever it is, I'm so excited and can finally see change!

confession time.embarassed I havent even started Insanity!! I just havent been having enough energy. I work at a daycare From 9 to 6. And when I get home all I wanna do is sit and watch tv/computer. I keep saying tmrw tmrw thmrw. But it never happens. Any advice? I tried the am workouts and I just dont have any strength I am so tired. I know I just need to get off my butt and do something!!!


Try and do it in the morning. You may want to consider getting the energy and endurance formula... makes a HUGE difference!

Beach Body has the recovery formula you may want to consider... However, I found that regardless of what I did my first week was ROUGH and I was sore for a week... Just have to push through the pain and after about the first week, the pain subsides.

week 3 day 2 plyometric cardio circuit. I had no trouble keeping up with anything on my feet today but once we hit the floor I fell behind. I may just try and repeat that part of the workout just so I can say I did it. sounds like everyone is sticking with it! Love it!
