Insanity workout tips are always something that people are curious about. Everyone wants to be able to get the most success with any workout program, so any tips are greatly appreciated. Well Inanity is no different. After just recently finishing Insanity I wanted to give my 5 most critical Insanity workout tips that will ensure you get the most success with Insanity. Many of these are not a big surprise, but for whatever reason it makes things a lot easier for people when you can show them things in a list form haha. So with that said I want you to take each one of these Insanity workout tips for what they are worth and really make sure you are utilizing them correctly while you are going through the program. I will do my best to explain each one thoroughly to you. Enjoy!
Insanity Workout Tips – Everything You Need To Succeed!
Like I said I don’t think most of these Insanity workout tips will surprise you and actually you will see most of these in the videos themselves. Having someone go through and explain each one to you and it’s relevance makes life a lot easier though right? RIGHT! So here is my list of the 5 critical Insanity workout tips that will help you get the most success with Insanity!
Insanity Workout Tips – #1 Keep Your Core Tight!
This perhaps is one of the biggest tips there is! You will see this a lot through out all of the videos and it will be restated again and again by Shaun T. The reason this is so important is because you want to engage all of the muscles in your stomach so you can get the most burn and therefore the most weight loss while you are working out. You may be asking yourself right now “How on earth do I keep my core tight though?”. Well here is what I have found works best.
Have you ever heard the phrase “I laughed so hard it made my stomach hurt.”? Well this is because when you laugh for long extended periods of time your core is constantly engaging and keeping tight. So try and do some kind of fake laugh or think of something that will make you laugh and feel your core engage. This is the feeling of keeping your core tight and is what you should try and replicate during your Insanity workouts.
Insanity Workout Tips – #2 Workout At Your Own Pace!
This is a big one as well. Most people think that if they can’t keep up with everyone in the workouts then they aren’t good enough and are failing. This is not the case. You should do the best YOU can do. Don’t hold yourself to anyone’s standards but your own! Pushing play and doing your best is far better than doing nothing at all.
Insanity Workout Tips – #3 NEVER Sacrifice Form!
This one is very important and will help prevent injury. There is form for a reason and it’s because it is the proper way to do the move for two reasons. The first reason is because doing the move with correct form will inevitably help better prevent you from injuring yourself. The second reason is because the form they show is the form that will get you the most results and is the form where the muscles are working the hardest. Don’t try and get the last extra couple of reps if they are going to be crappy. Take a quick breather and then get a few more with good form!
Insanity Workout Tips – #4 Proper Preparation!
This is critical if you want to make it through an entire Insanity workout. You need to make sure you are prepared to take on the workout in the first place. Make sure you are properly hydrated and have enough rest to complete these workouts. If you aren’t then you will be even more miserable dragging yourself through the workout. I will even put my P90X Results and Recovery Drink in my water to go ahead and get my muscles recovering while I am working out. This is a very critical step!
Insanity Workout Tips – #5 Soft Landings!
Insanity workouts are very tough on the joints. There are many high impact moves that will have you jumping and moving around a lot. It is critical that you don’t slam your joints up and down on the floor while you are doing these exercises. Try and land softly on the ground when jumping is involved to avoid injuring your knees.
Insanity Workout Tips – #6 *BONUS* Find Support and Encouragement
These workouts are extremely intense and can take a lot out of you. You may find yourself discouraged at times, or may find that you just can’t go on. Don’t give up! it is worth it I promise!
