Insanity is another solid workout system that is offered by Beachbody Fitness. Over the past several years Beachbody has put together an impressive resume of hardcore and intense workout programs. P90X, ChaLEAN Extreme and Turbo Jam are just a few of the widely accepted workout systems that they have to offer. However, out of all of the programs that Beachbody offers the Insanity workouts stand out amongst its siblings as the most intense and challenging workout system available to date. Insanity is a 60-day workout program that was designed and created by fitness expert Shaun T. If the name sounds familiar it's probably because Shaun is also the creator of the Hip Hop Abs and Rockin Body workouts. The key to the insanity workouts is in the way that the program uniquely structures its interval training. Instead of using a traditional interval training model, Insanity uses a customized version that is called Max Interval Training. For those not familiar with interval training, it's basically a workout methodology that consist of short burst of high intensity followed by a longer periods of rest. The high intensity/ low intensity exercises are cycled throughout the workout shocking the body into better results. The Insanity torrent takes the traditional model for interval trainer and turns it around to where you perform longer durations of the "intense" workouts followed by shorter durations of "rest". The workouts are made up of three minute segments of high intensity movements followed only by a 30 second window for rest. As a result the infomercial promises that you can achieve a year’s worth of results in only 60 days. Also, unlike some of the other workout programs available, the Insanity workouts do not require any special equipment or weights to perform the workouts. Instead Insanity uses your own body weight for the workouts. Just what do you get with your 10 Insanity Workout DVDs? Let's take a look. 1.)
