Are you ready to dig deep? Then you might just complete the hardest workout program ever put on DVD. Your personal trainer Shaun T will push you past your limits with 10 workout discs packed with plyometric drills on top of nonstop intervals of strength, power, resistance, and ab/core training moves. No equipment or weights needed—just the will to get the hardest body you’ve ever had.
When I went through the P90X Program, I really didn’t think that there could be a more intense program out there. Well, I was wrong when Beachbody released Insanity. Insanity might just be the most intense home workout system ever released! When I mean intense, I mean gut wrenching, sweat dripping, puddles-on-the-floor intense!
I have to warn you, though, this workout isn’t for beginners! This is for someone who is already in shape, but looking to take their fitness to the next level. However, if you are looking to build a lot of mass, I recommend P90X rather than Insanity. Like I said, Insanity is a high intensity program that burns a ton of calories, which is something you don’t want to do when trying to build a lot of muscle. But if your looking to get absolutely ripped, this program will work for you!
I love using 2 Insanity cardio routines in my current workout schedule. I still think the P90X resistance days are unbeatable, but by adding the intensity of Insanity cardio to my Hybrid workout, I push my body to the max!
When you receive Insanity, you will get 10 DVDs, which are held in a very nice book, and also receive the Elite Nutrition Book to help you eat right during your Insanity journey. You will also receive a calendar to know which days to do what workouts, which will help you stay on track! All of the workouts are very intense, and you will burn up to 1,000 calories per hour, which is unheard of, so be ready to sweat! The reason for the high intensity is because of Max Interval Training, in which there are long bursts of high-intensity exercises with short periods of rest.
Insanity is an excellent program if your ready to get into the best shape of your life! It will help you burn the fat and get that beach body you have always dreamed of! If you’re ready for a challenge, then click below to try Insanity today!
**Before you buy Insanity, read my review of the Deluxe DVD’s that come with the Insanity Deluxe Package (Including a Weighted Upper Body workout, Max Sports Interval Training, and Insane Abs)
The secret to these mind-blowing results: MAX Interval Training. Shaun T took traditional interval training and flipped it on its head—you perform long bursts of maximum-intensity exercises with short periods of rest. Each workout keeps you constantly challenged as you alternate between aerobic and anaerobic intervals performed at your MAX. The results: burn up to 1,000 calories an hour and get the most insane body in only 60 days.

Johan, maybe better in the sense that you have 60 days as opposed to 30. The Asylum would be great for speed and footwork. It also has the benefit of a real lifting day.
Just ordered the insanity workout. Wife and i finished round 2 of P90X and we feel great. Round 2 included a dedicated commitment to nutrition after finding your website. Results are phenomenal compared to round 1 with lax nutrition. That was they key to success for us. Now on to the fun of insanity hybrid. Bring it!
You know coach, I don't think I have adjusted the weight on my monitor.. Oh boy I feel stupid now.. Ill try that and see what happens.. I'm beat by the end if the workout and also my nutrition is good.. Ill try that first.. Thanks again
Coach,have a quick question. I'm on day 8 of Insanity and I'm burning 350-450 calories a workout. I'm running a heart rate of 140's on average. What gives LOL.. I'm pushing myself but I'm only burning that amount of calories and have a heart rate iod only 140's???? Any suggestions? Also I have a Polar heart rate monitor which is a quality monitor so I'd think the readings are accurate. Just a little frustrated and looking for any suggestions. Thanks Todd
Todd Nelson It depends on how trained you are, but that does seem low. Have you tried swapping out your batteries on the HRM? Is it set for your weight? Can you go any harder? Like when you finish, is there anything left in the tank?
With all that said, if you are bringing it, you will be fine. Work hard and the results come (no matter what a HRM says). Just keep tracking your nutrition and watch for body composition changes. If you need to adjust your nutrition, that could be a next step.
Coach, don't you think his muscles will start to canabolize themselves and he is of normal build. He wants to get quick results and he thinks this will get him ripped in a couple months.
insanitylover He could lose muscle mass. Sounds like he doesn't want to address his diet.
Hey coach, one of my bud's is doing Insanity, gym class, 4KM and going to the gym on alternate days.Do you think this is a little to much?
insanitylover Seems like a lot to me! I stick to my one hour a day. But everyone is different.
Hey coach, I dinsihed insanity a while back and i started weight lifting to get rid of some stubborn belly fat. I then tried insanity a little more but nothing seems to work out, do you think I should start a new type of cardio or go a bit more extreme, why do you think?
Ken, losing fat is primarily about your diet. Make sure your food is on track and don't cheat on your plan.
Hey coach, Iv'e noticed that insanity doesnt have a recovery week at the end of the second month like p90x does. What would you recomend if I wanted to do a second round of insanity? Also would I just do month 2 again or would there be a point to doing month 1?
Nate, Insanity is just a 2 month program. If you want to run it again, just use the same recovery week as between month 1 and 2 and then start a new round with month 1.
Also Coach do you think I should be taking a protien powder drink after or before insanity ( Body fortress). Also how much protien do you think a 15 year old needs?
Ken, I have no clue what a 15 y/o needs. I would check with your doctor before making any big changes to your diet.
Hey coach I do Insanity at about 8 PM everyday and I have my last meal at about 9PM yet I go to sleep at 12-1 and wake up at around 9. Is it okay for me to eat that late since you are not supposed to after 7PM, or should I find time to do Insanity a bit earlier?
Ken, that is ok. You might want to hold off if you went to bed earlier, but you have 3 hours after your meal. That is perfectly fine.
Just my 2 cents for people asking if P90X is not as good as insanity for losing fat. I did P90x a few years ago and had AWESOME results. Went from 214 to 186 and felt amazing. AND gained a lot of muscle. 36 to a 32 waist. My abs were looking great. I stuck to the P90X workouts and nutrition 100%. I was happy! Then I did insanity and cranked up my calories. The reason was because I followed the insanity book to calculate my calories. I also stuck to insanity 100%. I wound up gaining 6 pounds and could barely see my abs. After completing the full 60 grueling days of insanity, it was extremely disappointing to look worse on day 60 than on day 1. The problem was because I DIDN'T USE MY BRAIN. I knew I was eating too much but I just kept telling myself "no I won't drop the calories because the insanity book says I'm eating the right amount". I ate 100% clean - JUST TOO MUCH! Wayne is exactly right when he talks about the deficit being the most important thing for losing weight. Both programs are great (though I'll always love p90x most) mc
I'm following the calculations and I get 2,247 for my BMR. When I multiply that by 1.7 (activity factor assuming Insanity workouts), I get 3,819 as my TDEE. Subtract 500 from that and I get 3,319. So 1,900 would be a 1,900 calorie deficit. Is such a drastic reduction safe?
Kevin, the calculations are starting points. I started at 252 lbs. I wanted to lose fat and lose it quickly, that is where I came to a 1,000 calorie deficit from the 3,000 calorie level 3 that P90X put me on. I think you will totally safe. If you are worried start at 2400 and see. I just don't believe that you will be satisfied if you are eating 3,300.
Hey Coach, I'm on my 7th week of Insanity and the scale has yet to budge. Haven't noticed any changes in inches either. I started with my calories at 2,400 and have upped them to 3,000 (based on the formula in the Insanity nutrition guide). I'm 250 with 29% body fat. While I have seen improvements in my endurance, I honestly decided to do Insanity for the purpose of losing inches/body fat. What am I missing?
Kevin, you need to run a calorie deficit to lose weight. At 250, 3000 may be your maintenance that the guide sets up but you need to subtract calories from there. I would suggest taking a look at my 1900 calorie plan. Check out: http://teamripped.com/my-nutritionsupplements/my-sample-diet and http://teamripped.com/p90x-round-1-nutrition
Joseph, I use Insanity with P90X, never alone for that reason. Weight training has too many benefits to just stop for 60 days.
Hey coach, im halfway through strength phase of X2 but my nutrition was really off hence my results are not visible at all.. as i'm having my marathon in 2 months' time, would you recommend switching over to insanity instead of starting X2 all over again?
Vee, no I would recommend sticking to your nutrition plan. The program won't matter if you don't eat properly! Get after it and don't cheat all your hard work!
hey coach, In the Insanity videos, Shaun T always says "Keep the core tight". This is probably a stupid question, but i just wanna make sure i'm doing it right, how do you keep the core tight?
Josh/JP/Michael - keeping a tight core is about tighten your abs, glutes, and even quads a bit. You want to minimize movement through your midsection.
oh and what do you think would get me to reach my goal faster, Insanity/Asylum hybrid, or a round of Insanity followed by a round of Asylum?
Michael, both would work. To lose weight like that you need time and a spot on diet. Learn everything you can from the Nutrition tab and give it 110%!!!
Hey coach, I've got about 28% of body fat that I'd LOVE to lose... so I was wondering if I did Insanity followed by a round of Asylum, (with proper diet and everything... of course), would I end up ripped? Although I'm not really into muscle building, would I gain some muscle by doing these two workouts?
Michael, guys have lost that much with those programs. It takes complete dedication to the workouts and nutrition. You will build some muscle as you lose, but you main goal will need to be fat loss.
Would you recommend insanity for people that want to lose weight fast? Before doing p90x to build more muscle? with the difficulty of finding an hour and a half to do p90x
Kevin - No because I have never done Insanity as a stand alone program. I have used it in my hybrids for awesome cardio, but not by itself. Having only body weight exercises would make it really hard (almost impossible) to even maintain my lean muscle mass.
Hello Wayne, How have you been? I finally looked you up after multiple times doing PAP in X2 and I was hooked by your website. Great story. Great motivation. It's humbling to see a guy who has a lot going on still has the time to be so committed. I'm 26 years old, happily married with 3 young kids (2 girls, 1 boy) and BUSY BUSY! I started Insanity last Thursday after a 3 week rest period after completing my first Tough Mudder in Somerset, WI. I have done P90X, P90X2 and Insanity but I really have FULLY committed to completing each program. I'm in good shape but I have never been "RIPPED." That is why I jumped at the opportunity for you to be my coach. I want to get ripped and maintain this healthy lifestyle. Having a newborn, it is been tough getting consistent shut eye but after reading one of your website's articles, I started working out in the AM on an empty stomach. THIS HAS BEEN TOUGH! I do enjoy the feeling afterwards though, knowing that I am done and I can get home after work and focus on the kids. So thank you! One question, the Insanity nutrition guide says I should be eating 3,200 calories per day to maintain my current body weight. I am currently about 180lbs and 6' tall, just really looking to get rid of some trouble spots in my lower stomach. I thought 3,200 calories a day was crazy high! Thoughts? I'm hoping if I stick to Insanity for the full 60-days, I will get the ripped lean look I have been just "thinking" about all my life. Thanks again Wayne for the inspiration. Looking forward to your response. Reid
Hey Reid - glad to have you on teamRIPPED! Now to get you RIPPED! I recommend that P90X way of nutrition for everyone. If you want to shred some fat, use Fat Shredder percentages (50%Protein/30%Carbs/20%Fat) and run a deficit. At 180, P90X would figure your need to be 2710. I think going with my 1900 calorie plan for at least the first month would be the perfect way to jump start your round of Insanity. Then you could switch to a more balanced 40/40/20 and more calories even. Read: http://teamripped.com/my-nutritionsupplements/my-sample-diet and http://teamripped.com/p90x-round-1-nutrition BRING IT! Oh and DIG DEEP!
Just got my Insanity package today! I didnt get the cool booklet for the dvd's though.. kinda upset about that.
hey coach, Would you recommend subbing insanity for kenpo and plyo days if I can get through those workouts with no problems/pauses, i mean i still sweat, but they dont feel as challenging anymore.
hey coach, So if i want to switch plyo x and kenpo x days with insanity cardio, which insanity workouts would those be? Also can I just buy those 2 insanity workouts, or do i have to buy the whole package?
Hey Michael, look at my P90X Insanity hybrid for the workouts I'd recommend subbing in, if you decide to do a hybrid. And with Insanity, just like every other workout program except the 1-on-1s, you can't buy individual workouts. You have to buy the set.
Any advice for using the specific insanity workouts in the "perfect storm" living in an apartment on the 3rd floor? Is there some modifications you use or know of that I could use to lessen the impact on the floor? Thanks.
