I've completed Insanity Max 30! I never thought I would ever do a program like that. After watching my siblings do the original Insanity workout once, I shook my head and said I'd never do it. I'm not a cardio girl at all. In high school, I hated running laps, running the mile, whatever. I could play volleyball all day, but doing those cardio exercises sucked! In any case, I saw this program and thought, why not? It's only 30 minutes and I wanted the challenge.
Two weeks into doing the unmodified moves, I threw out my back doing nothing. I had an old back injury from college that flared up. I couldn't walk or sit down without extreme pain. I had to take a week off to recover. After that, I did all the moves modified. It was still a hard program to complete, as cardio is difficult for me. However, I was bummed about not being able to complete it doing the unmodified version. I am competitive with myself, and I was interested to see how much I could improve on my max out time. On some of those exercises though, I could barely make it to 10 minutes DOING the modified, so I think overall it was a good mix.
I liked the program. It was quick and dirty. I definitely think it improved my cardio. And the fact that you can make it so the modifier is on a split screen while working out was truly helpful. Interested in trying it? Contact me!
