I think I've pretty much decided on the Turbofire, I can always mix in some Insanity if I need something more. I just want something I enjoy, Insanity wad a real chore towards the end of round 1, it requires mental strength as well as physical. Has anyone ordered directly from Beachbody? I've read some negative reviews about unauthorised payments being taken and annoying sales calls. I bought my Insanity from Argos but didn't get the advanced stuff.
ive ordered dirct for all my stuff. just dont use the back button on your browser it confuses it and you end up with a double order.
I ordered Insanity direct from Beachbody and didn't have any issues.
I've missed Monday's fit test and yesterday's Plyometric Cardio circuit. Although this is less to do with laziness and more to do with playing American Football with my mates on sunday which has resulted in it being very painful to move, let alone do Insanity. Seriously, it hurts just straightening my leg out. Still, pain or not, enough rest days, back into it today with Pure Cardio (and Cardio Abs). Full muscle failure may be just aroudn the corner
Hi guys hope your all still pushing play.
I've got 2 weeks to go till Insanity now. Fell race is tomorrow then finish T25 over the next 2 weeks, 1/2 marathon on the 24th then start on the monday morning.
Back on here again after several failed attempts to finish Insanity. I've been doing some T-25 which is good but don't feel the same effects as from Insanity. I've got a marathon to run in 10 weeks and feel really unfit. After 4 months of no exercise due to health problems I can really feel the difference in my fitness levels on long runs - I manage the distance but struggle and go very very slowly! I'm going to start Insanity again because I remember it helping with my fitness and running last time (even though I didn't finish it) I don't know if I'll be able to do all 6 workouts every week because the running has to take priority but I'll give it a go. So - fit test today!!
Hi Samantha - I did my fit test this morning. I've just finished T25 getting ready for another attempt at finishing Insanity too. My Marathon isn't till April but want to use this as a boost to my fitness over the hardest of the Winter months. Like you are i'll be juggling the schedule a little so i can still run.
I was pretty pleased with my test results as i ran a half yesterday and i sort of managed everything with scores pretty much just below an old set of results i found. Push up Jacks were slightly modified as i can't do a proper push up yet and i don't jump that high on jumps.
I'll try to post my results up later - good luck with yours
Ok so as promised here's my first fit test
Switch Kicks 45Power Jacks 46Power Knees 77Power Jumps 28 (i can't go as high or get my knees up as much as the machines)Globe Jumps 6Suicide Jumps 12Push Up Jacks 9 (modified as i still can't do a proper pushup so my arms only 1/2 bend as much as they should)Low Plank Oblique 24
Plyo Cardio done this morning and i'd forgotton how hard this is. The 2nd circuit killed me. Hurting now but in a good way.
How is it going Chrissi? I did my fit test nearly a week ago but haven't done any of the workouts yet.Did a 17km run at the weekend though. Will do Plyo today.
Samantha it's going great it's not easy but i'm loving it and no noticable effects on my running. I'm not doing it perfectly but i am doing it as best i can.
Well done on 17K run and hope Plyo went well
Plyo went well - better than expected Chrissi. Still have trouble with Level 1 drills, ski abs, in out abs though!!
You should see me trying that - i think i spend more time on my hands and knees gasping than doing the actual exercises.
i'm nearly at the end of week 2 now but will finish monday rather than tomorrow as it's long run weekend.
Hi just checked back after some time away,
Good to see people are still blogging
I got within 2 weeks of finishing Insanity then had appendicitis and had to have said appendix taken out so I was out of action for a while.
then I was on holiday and now I don't think I can start all over again
need some inspiration !
I was thinking of starting T25 and noticed a few people have done it on here
is it any good, it looks a bit easier than Insanity or is that wishful thinking!
got to start something, a long lay off and xmas have taken their toll!
I found this when searching the web for reviews and what a great find, reading all the insanity results and journals. I'm 45, male, overweight, over eating and was on a down hill run I used to run, thats how I am on here, a couple of years of years ago and knew I had to do something, but what with winter coming I didnt want to pound the streets in our glorious weather. One of my work colleaugues mention the insanity and when I saw it advertised I thought why not give it a go.
I had been going a week when I found this post and read pretty much all of it last weekend and knew I was on the right programme.
I'm not in good shape at the moment, my fit test numberst:switch kicks 43power jacks 32power knees 60

The whole of last week is a bit of a blur, as is this week to be fair but now ive started to pick up correct form, not just survive to the end As for stamina, well, I do most of the exercise for most of the exercises! Like today, I was completely zapped and had very little to give in parts, I just did what I could. I kid you not I have been sweating like I havent sweated ... ever. I dont follow the diet plan other than do restrict myself to 2500 calories. I do have chicken veg etc, but on wednesday for example I had a nice couple of pints with 2 packs of crisps, just counted them in the total. Not expecting much on my 1st weekly weigh in but .... I dropped 3kg (6.6lb) in weight so motivation is there alone.
Its been really good to read all your posts so please keep it up - I'm going to need it next month by all accounts.
One question though; Tomorrow is Pure Cardio & Cardio Abs - is that both exercises or is it just the abs as cardio was done on the tuesday??
