Dare I say the workouts are getting easier? I guess easier isn't the right word, but I'm making it through with fewer breaks. The breaks I do take are much later into the workout, usually during the exercises done from plank position (ski abs - oh how I hate you while I love you). My shoulders and arms just can't hold up to last to the end. But, I'll take any progress as good progress. I noticed my husband is much further into his stretches than he was when we started too (which wasn't very far at all). And no more back pain for me - guess I improved my form.
My view so far: The workouts are intense and effective. I think my belly went down a little already and my butt is firmer. I do wish there were more muscle building exercises incorporated, but Insanity was not meant to be that kind of workout - although I did pick up the upper body weight training DVD via eBay that apparently came with the deluxe Insanity package. Guess I just miss the weight training from my P90X run and I have gone back to them on my rest days so far. The ideal program would combine Insanity's cardio and P90X's weight training - that would be awesome! I'm also getting bored with the warm up already. It's the same thing for the same 9 minutes most of the week. A little more variety would have been nice. But, I like it. I feel so good and energized when I'm done. The ultimate endorphin rush! My husband has thanked me about a dozen times so far for getting him to do this. Now that's something! We will keep pushing play and digging deeper until we get to the end.
