/ insanity workout
My wife likes to work out and I recently kept her company through a cycle of P90X, she had considered Insanity as well but it looked a bit high-impact and too many years of hurdling in her youth have left her careful of knees and ankles. I was already in decent shape before we started but after the 90 days, the most profound effect on me was flexibility and core stability. There was a yoga component to the workout that made me whimper but I think this was where the best gains came from. I'm actually thinking of doing another 90 day cycle just to improve my climbing ...
Doing 2 of them workouts in one day is impressive if you were giving it your all. The second half of it is absolutely brutal.
Search google, there tons of stuff on it.
Its about £120 on amazon. It can be got for "cheaper" elsewhere.
I looked at p90x, as insanity is too much if Im climbing 4 days a week. But you need some bits and bobs for p90x I think. At least you dont with insanity, but turning up to a climbing session already pumped is not going to improve my climbing much!
> But you need some bits and bobs for p90x I think.
Yeah, for P90x, you need a yoga mat, and some dumbbells or elastic bands, I also installed a chin-up bar. . . P90x2 is weird, lots of Swiss ball and medicine ball work, I prefer the original but the Ab-ripper component of the new one is definitely better
construction work somewhere cold is far more realistic than time in the gym. worked for generations of good climbers who were kidding themselves about serious results.
just started doing it on non-climbing days. it's hard, much more intense than p90x though workouts are shorter.
it can be got "cheaper" by checking google shopping. bizarrely it's also actually cheaper in argos than it is on amazon (£90 at argos).
If you manage to get any info, could you let me know as well?
Cannot really post anything on here.
Ahoy matey is all I will say.
Likewise just stated it - want to lose some weight, tone up and generally get some cardio work done as I rarely do anything which raises a sweat.
Realistically I won't be able to do the 6 days a week actual program, but will do it on any free evening and see what happens.
Did the fit test on Sunday, still a bit stiff around the thighs and back of the knees (and feet... maybe shouldn't do it barefoot?)
Quite psyched to see if it makes a difference
I'll tell you in a Bit, or I'll get a Torrent of a abuse... ;)
