Well that's me just finished the first day of the second month of insanity plus i did my fitness test. I pushed my hardest the first month to the stage i could not lift myself off the floor but todays was just complete madness, I was sick, Pulled a muscle in my leg and flared up an old golfers elbow injury. Plus both knees are very sore.

Hopefully this is going to get easier, I think today i was having an off day but if i carry on like this i think it will kill me.

On a positive side i smashed my fitness test results again.

Thanks, Yeh i will stick with it. I have came this far and as much as it causes allot of pain i still enjoy it

I am definitely building muscle, My arms and legs are bigger but i am not loosing my little fat bits. The first month Shaun always wanted everything to come from the core but if i am honest i didn't have one but now i am getting a little toned above my gut haha.

I was also doing a little weights the last few weeks of the first month but i think if the second month carries on like this i will give the weights a miss.

Looking forward to it, I'm reasonably fit but nothing near where I was this time last year.

By reasonable I mean I can probably run 3-4 miles at 7min 30secs pace lol. Play fives 3 times a week and badminton once or twice but nothing to this extreme.

If I can survive month one and start eating properly then that's the battle beginning.

Agree with this, after many years of heavy weight lifting etc followed by a few years of packing on pounds in the wrong places I started insanity a month ago and it just blew my mind. I've never done anything so difficult in my life but its honestly so much fun as well. Definitely worth sticking to. I stopped after 3 weeks as I begun fasting for Ramadan but will crack on from the beginning in about 2 weeks! Can't wait.

Good luck to anyone else doing it.

Any comments appreciated.

A long time since I been in here.

Anyhow I moved onto cycling and did 4000 miles last year.

But back to your question I bought the Powerbar 2. I had a bar similar to the P90X version but for me I found that it sat very low in the door way. The powerbar sits up level to the top of the architraves, where as the other versions sit 6" below the door frame loosing you clearance.

Hope that helps.
