Insanity Plyometrics Review
This evening I finally broke down and tried out Insanity. I decided to do the first workout DVD which was the Plyometrics cardio circuit workout. I am not a fan of intense workouts but I wanted to give it a try. The DVD first starts out with a pretty fast paced warm up. I was already feeling it in my calves before the warm up portion was even over. The disc then goes into a stretching before the circuit begins using a lot of yoga based stretches. The circuit starts out at about a jog pace and begins to speed up immensely right away. After each circuit (about 5 minutes to get through the circuit) and then there is aw ater break. It is a definite good exercise, and I can admit that I didn't make it through the entire 40 minutes. I stopped at about the 25 minute mark. I didn't want to be unable to walk tomorrow or in too much pain to ever do the workout again. I can definitely see that it works and is a good workout if you are serious about getting into shape and losing weight. It gets you sweating and working out you entire body. I will have to check out some of the other discs and let you know what my take is on it. So far I am already sore and will be hating life in the morning. If you are serious about getting into shape I would definitely check this out. It usually runs for a bit more than $100 but Amazon is selling used copies starting at $44.
Here is a preview of what you are in for :)
