Are you looking for an intense workout for that fitter, leaner body you want? Are you looking for a fun, gruelling but ultimately very rewarding workout aptly called “Insanity”?
The Insanity Workout DVD by Beach Body offers home-workout DVDs that you can follow from the comfort of your home. But be prepared – the workouts are challenging! This is no miracle workout that promises impossible things and fails to deliver. No honest workout that truly helps you lose those calories and sculpt your body – in as short a time as sixty days – is meant to be easy. This program has been designed by fitness expert Shaun T, and is well-known for its effectiveness. Fitness trainers the world over have tested the workouts and have been very impressed with the results. The DVD set is one of Amazon’s most popular fitness products, and has received some of the highest ratings from a large number of users.
Stick to the routine for sixty days, and you’ll come away in the best shape of your life!
Insanity is a full body workout without the need for any equipment. All the exercises on the program can be done at home. The program makes you use your body weight (in other words, the power of gravity) as resistance. The program is based on a routine of “max interval training”. In standard interval training programs, you perform intense exercises for brief periods followed by longer periods of rest. In traditional interval training, you burn fat while you increase your general aerobic fitness.
In the max interval training routines that Insanity puts you through, you will push your body to the max for three minute intervals, followed by short 30-second intervals of rest. Such extreme intensity exercises can help you burn as much as a 1000 calories in an hour.
If you enjoy the adrenaline rush of pushing your body to its limits, being drenched in sweat and giving your all for 45-minutes of workouts that your muscles will feel but your body will eventually thank you for, then Insanity is for you.
The Features of the Insanity Workout DVD Set
The Insanity workout home DVD set comes with 10 DVDs and 10 workouts. Each routine will take you between thirty and sixty minutes to complete. If you follow the routine as planned, you will be working out 6 days a week, over 60 days, with changes to the schedule every week.
In the first thirty days, these are five full-body workouts planned for you:
- Fit test – 30 minutes of workouts during which you will find out what your body can take.
- Plymetric cardio circuit – 40 minutes of fat burning workouts with intervals of intense cardio and lower-body plyometrics. Plyometrics are strength-building stretching and contracting of muscles.
- Cardio Power and Resistance – 40 minutes of power moves and strength training for building lean muscles and upper body definition.
- Cardio recovery – 80 minutes of workouts that are easier on you and prepares you for the next routine.
- Pure Cardio and Abs – 40 minutes of extreme and non-stop cardio.
After the first month, you will do a week of recovery with daily balance routines and core cardio workouts. This week will be less intense than the previous four weeks. The following month will have more intense routines for you:
- Max Interval Circuit – 60 minutes of the most intense and rewarding training that you may have ever done.
- Max Interval Plyo – 55 minutes of high intensity plyometrics and power workouts for your legs.

The Benefits Of Insanity
The Insanity workout targets your whole body. The cardio abs workouts target your core and mid-section and throughout the program you’ll be sculpting and toning your arms, shoulders and chest. The plyometric workouts will target your legs with elements of jumping and hopping borrowed from boxing, skiing, basketball and other sports. The plyometrics also strengthen and sculpt your glutes. The workouts target the muscle groups of the lower body, but they also help to indirectly work on your back muscles. Overall, Intensity is all about aerobics. You’ll improve your cardio fitness drastically while losing body fat. The max interval program will help to build strength by challenging your muscles to the max.
As long as you have a TV in front of you, you can do the workouts right at home, with the help of trainer Shaun T. The only other thing you will need is a good pair of athletic shoes, and plenty of stamina. This is one of the toughest fitness routines that is out there, and even people in good shape may find it difficult to adjust in the beginning. But stick it through, give your all when you begin, and you will reap some serious rewards in terms of muscle sculpting and calorie burning.
Who Is Insanity For?
