Insanity from Shaun T
INSANITY is a 60-day
cardio-based total-body conditioning program thats perhaps the most
intense workout ever put on DVD. Fitness expert Shaun T drew on his collegiate
track and field training plus his subsequent years of experience as an elite
trainer to create a program that takes total-body conditioning to an extreme
level. Just as P90X is the height of resistance training, so INSANITY is the
pinnacle of cardio training.
Why is Insanity Effective?
Interval training allows you to beat the
stress adaptation response, which is what happens when your body
gets used to exercising at one level of exertion and stops improving. An
interval workout includes a set where you perform at your maximum, followed by
one of lower intensity, with the cycle repeated to achieve a cumulative effect.
INSANITY uses MAX Interval Training which replaces your moderateintensity
exercise with maximum-intensity exercise, and your short intervals of intensity
with short periods of rest. Adding high-intensity exercise, during which your
heart rate is raised to 80 percent or more of its maximum capacity, forces your
body to use fast-twitch muscle fibers not normally engaged in cardio exercise.
These fast-twitch fibers continue burning extra fuel even during
lower-intensity exercise. INSANITYs high-intensity activity is likely to
have you working out at over 85% of your maximum, instead of the lower rate
recommended in other programs. As a result, youll experience faster
increases in fitness and more efficient burning of carbohydrates and
fatas much as 1,000 calories per hour.
What Can Insanity Do for You
INSANITY pushes you beyond what you thought
was possible with explosive cardio and plyometric drills and non-stop intervals
of strength, power and resistance. Additional ab and core training techniques
will get you amazing results in just 60 days.
Instead of working out
moderately, with short bursts of intensity, INSANITY demands long periods of
high-intensity exercise punctuated with short periods of rest.
You might just complete the hardest workout

limits with 10 workout discs packed with plyometric drills on top of nonstop
intervals of strength, power, resistance, and ab/core training moves. No
