I tried it and just about died LOL. It's a really good workout and actually kind of fun. But it's no joke. The name totally fits.
I may have to give it another go one day.

all cardio, not enough weights. I'd choose p90x with a dual cardio plan over insanity any day.

Re: Insanity !!!

I've done some of it. I really like it, but if you have any kind of feet, knee, back problems, this is not for you. They don't have any modifications, which doesn't mean you can't modify yourself, but you should at least know what are safe moves, etc.

For me, I have bad feet. Any kind of jumping burns the bottom of my feet so bad I can't even stand up. And Insanity has a lot of jumping.

The first time I tried the program, I only made it through the first 4 weeks and I lost 9 pounds which was awesome. Towards the end of that first 4 weeks, I even began to think the workouts were somewhat easy (that's relatively speaking, folks!) and I felt really great and knew I was getting stronger. Then I started the 2nd 4 weeks and it was so much harder that I got discouraged quickly.
A real woman always has a clean house, an empty laundry basket, smells good, is well made-up, slim, healthy, eloquent, and perfectly well behaved...I suspect I am a man.

I did it and it was great, but I would add in weights if I did another round.
