I’ve already explained the fabulous Shaun T’s Insanity program, and I want to clear one thing up right away. Insanity Max: 30 is not just a shorter version of Insanity. It is an entirely different program with a unique focus. But there is one thing that is the same: if you follow the program to the letter, you can expect to be on your way to a lean, ripped body in 60 days.
Shaun T had a winning program with Insanity, but he realized that people might have the desire and drive, but not the time, to dedicate to the program. Always looking for a new approach, he revamped Insanity so that the workouts only last 30 minutes each. The key is that everything is kicked up a few notches to give you Insanity results in an Insanity Max: 30 time-frame.
The key to the workouts is to go as hard as you can for as long as you can. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? This program is not recommended for beginners unless of course you feel challenged.
If you go full out every time, this will be one of the hardest workouts you will ever try. Trying to increase your stamina while building strength is a lot harder than it looks. Completing the exercises using the modified moves will still make you sweat and strain.
There are 12 workouts divided into two months in the Iprogram The first month is “easier,” and then the intensity continues to build as you increase your stamina. You’ll be doing a mixture of cardio and strength training. If you’re familiar with Shaun T’s workouts, you know that you’ll also be working your mind at the same time.
Endurance is the goal, whether it’s during intense cardio or resistance moves. The program remains focused on getting you to push yourself beyond your comfort levels to eventually reach that 30-minute max limit. You’ll begin to see the fruits of your labor as you excel in the program.
About that Max: 30 you will not, and I mean under no circumstances, be able to complete the 30 minutes during your first workout. You’re welcome to try, but that is not how the program is designed. Even if you only get through four minutes of the exercise on the first day, the idea is to go 30 seconds long the next time.
As you build your strength and endurance, you’ll see your ability to work through the exercises for increased amounts of time. The important thing to remember is to listen to your body and know when it’s too much, but also allow yourself to push out three more reps.
Shaun T is all about the importance of mental strength enhancing physical strength. Insanity Max: 30 certainly takes this to heart and puts it at the forefront of the program.
