yonasbb Asylum Vol 1. used to, but I don't think it comes with bands anymore. You can get some at TBB for $6.95 under Equipment & Gear > Asylum Equipment. Here's the direct link: http://teambeachbody.com/shop/-/shopping/BootyBand?referringRepId=180334
Hey coach I'm 6'2" 184lbs and 14% bf. What would be the ideal bf% for me to be at to see my abs and how much more weight do I need to lose to get those results? Thanks
stephentroop25 Most guys need to get below 10% to see abs. If you were to maintain all your lean mass, that would put you under 176 lbs to be at 10% BF. So realistically, you will finish in the 168-172 range. You can still build some muscle as you cut, but you really just want to maintain what you have.
Hey Coach Wayne, I just ordered Asylum through your link so you could get credit. Thanks for being such a great coach!!! Best, AB
Hey Coach Wayne, I just ordered Asylum through your link so you'd get credit. Thanks for being such a super coach! Best, AB
Hey Coach! Great results and transformation. Keep it up:) I am a basketball player and I need to gain weight (muscle only). I have a 7% BF. I want to get bigger, faster, and stronger. One of the trainers I asked for basketball said that you should never do something that says "bodybuilding" infront of it because your a basketball player, not a bodybuilder. I have a 7% BF
M7, the Asylum would then be right up your alley. P90X2 would be another great choice for athletic performance. To put on mass, you will need to EAT, EAT, and EAT!
Coach, Thanks for the advice. I'll start with Asylum and eventually go to Insanity/p90x hybrid down the road. Will keep you posted.
Hey Coach, I have completed 2 rounds of P90x2 (lost 22 lbs) and was wondering which workout you recommend next, Asylum or Insanity? My goal is to lose 10 more pounds and then concentrate more on dieting to get ripped. Thanks
Greg, both Insanity and the Asylum would be great picks. If you go with Insanity, I would encourage you to use it in a hybrid that include lifting (like P90X). Asylum has weight training already.
hey coach, i started the asylum/insanity hybrid, but after the 4th workout i got sick and wasnt able to workout. do you think i should start from the beginning or contine from where i left off?
Awesome thanks coach, just wanted to make sure I can get the full benefit of the program even with a calorie deficiency diet.
Coach, I just got The Asylum yesterday, did the fitness test and started the program today. WOW! It's really intense and I have a question about my diet. I have been following the 1900 calorie fat shredder for 4 months and I'm not down to the body fat % I want yet (I had a lot to lose). However I think I need to up the carbs and probably the calories in order to really get what I want out of Asylum. I was thinking of going to the energy booster style diet and maybe put my calorie count around 2400. I still want to get my body fat % down but I want to survive the work outs. Obviously I'm going to have to experiment with the diet a bit and figure out what works, I was just wondering if you think that would be a good start place. In 30 days I plan on having a 6 pack and be living life above the rim! Shane
Shane, push through man! A lot of the Asylum Legends made it through on 1800-1900 calories. If you stay at 1900 and move to 40/40/20, you will notice a boost. Get your mind right for the workouts and you will do great! Diggin' deeper!
Alejandro, that will be mostly a function of your diet. If you stop eating well and tracking, yes you'll gain fat.
What does spot working out mean? And I may be doing karate during these 2-3 months, will that help? But karate will be all cardio based, we do not do any resistance exercises except for push ups
Hey coach, i'm doing asylum at the moment and did p90x before it. I will have to be stopping in a while because of school, but I have gained quite some muscle from doing these programs, so if I stop for 2-3 months and then pick them up again, do you think the muscles will have gone?
Alejandro, if you completely stop working out, it will be hard to maintain muscle. Find a way to keep it up! Even if it is only 3-4 times a week. Every effort helps!
i just read your article on body beast is for losers. because im going for fat loss, would you recommend i do body beast or the asylum? considering the nutrition and everything
Hey Jose, the best way to determine which program meets ALL your needs is to read the "getting started right" tab. You may think losing body fat is your goal, but chances are when you evaluate everything there is a final result you are after that also involves building muscle and getting toned and strong.
Hey coach, I'm currently 180 lbs with 24% body fat and I'm 5'9. I have love handles and I was looking to burn a lot of fat with this program. Would you recommend that I do this program? Suprisingly, my stamina is very good, I did a couple of insanity workouts and I withstood them all. If you do recommend that I do this program, what do you think about this supplement list? My supplements list: Pre Workout: Muscle Pharm Assault Intra workout: Purple.wraath Post workout: R&R, Gnc amp wheybolic 60, glutamine caps, creatine caps I was looking at another post and I saw this list I'm looking mostly to lose my fat by doing 2 ROUNDS of the asylum then build muscle later on
Jose, the Asylum is great as it includes weight training. Nutrition is the most important thing for fat loss. You have to stick to your deficit! Supplements can't make up for a poor diet.
Hey coach, you probably got sick of me now i've been asking all over the site haha, but I started this today, and I have a history with my knees. They don't hurt alot but I did feel them today, especially the left side of my left knee. I still finished speed and agility, wasn't a huge problem, but do you reccomend me getting knee supports for both my knees in order to avoid injury? Thanks in advance!
I am not sure John. That might be something you want to talk about with your doctor or a PT. Listen to your body and stay safe.
I bought this kit and will be doing asylum soon, and I was wondering if by the end of the 30 days, I order the asylum t-shirt, do they deliver outside the USA? Somewhere such as the Middle East?
John, for the Asylum shirt, you need to send in your photos, measurements, and a proof of purchase photo. There should be details in the package.
Hey coach, I'm new here and I wanna lose most of my 30% of body fat. I was wondering which plan would get me to lose the most fat faster, a hybrid between Asylum/Insanity or a round of Insanity followed by a round of Asylum?
Hey coach I am not going to start the asylum yet, but in the get shredded guide it says no dairy products, does that include skim milk? Thank you
Hi Coach, one more question. what should be the highest weight of dumbell I should get. I know this is subjective depending on my strength. I currently lift hard 3 times a week, but I'm a firm believer of doing the exercise right instead of letting my pride win (lifting more than I should with poor form). any sort of standard I should go by? i.e. how much I'm curling/shoulder presses/bench presses currently as a way to measure what I should get. Since I don't know the moves it's hard for me to know what I should get. I tried looking at the adjustable weights but those are far to expensive. Even on craigslist they are going for almost retail price. Thanks in advance!
Hey Mariano, all I can tell you is what I use, which is the Bowflex 552's. On the Asylum strength workout I use as much as 45's and as little as 15's. Your own abilities could be entirely different.
Coach, I see that they do pull ups. Do I need a pull up bar and weights? or what comes in the back should be sufficient?
Hey Mariano, the kit comes with the speed ladder, jump rope, and resistance bands. But you will need some dumbbells. There are also a few (not many, but a few) pullup exercises but they show you how to use dumbbells to modify if you'd rather. So you don't "need" the pullup bar, but you need some dumbbells.
Hey coach, i am going to order some stuff through your link soon, and not to be personal, but do you get much commission per order? I am order shakeolgy soon!
Hey Mohammad, thanks for asking. I get a 25% commission from BB for things that people order through me.
Coach i was thinking of purchasing asylum and i was wondering if we go through you do we have to pay it all in one payment or can we have the option to do three separate payments?
Hey Jaron, unfortunately teambeachbody (which is where the coach orders go through) doesn’t allow the 3 payment option. If you are needing to do the 3 payment plan, you have to go straight through the main beachbody site to make the order. I don’t get credit for it, but that’s okay with me if it’s better for your budget. Do what you need to do! :-)
Hey Coach, In the next day or two I am going to order Asylum from the link on your site. I want to add the DVD protection (replace any scratched/unplayable discs no questions asked) that I got with P90X when I bought via phone through Team Beachbody. Do you know if it is possible to add that option through the online checkout after I click the link on your site? Thanks!
Hey Brendan, anytime you order through a coach like me, you automatically get a lifetime warranty. You don't need to pay anything extra.
hey coach i have a question about the jump rope in asylum, i am going to do insanity and then p90x again first but am also looking into buying the asylum. I have a drop ceiling in my basement so i cannot be swinging a rope around breaking the ceiling tiles, i need to know if i can buy the asylum and still get results without using the speed rope?
