FINALLY!! I finished a Shaun T program. Earlier this year I completed almost all of Insanity and almost all of Insanity Max 30 at the beginning of this year but I can finally say that I completed Insanity Max 30, I missed 2 workouts over the past 60 days due to the stomach bug and I am more than excited about my results! I used the meal plan (which is actually a similar meal plan from 21 day fix so I was set!) however, I lost some motivation during the last month and was WAY off track with my diet, but I was able to gain control back near the end and still had great results!
The whole premise of Insanity Max 30 is great, you learn to go out of the comfort zone and push yourself for 1 more second, 1 more rep, 1 more move, 1 more minute and then you build on that each week. You push play, start working out and when you have to stop you write your time down, that’s your MAX OUT time. I mainly modified since I don’t like push ups (and there is A LOT) and I don’t like putting a lot of stress on my knees through jumping around. Even if you modify you will still see great results.
So, I lost 5 pounds and over 6 inches over 60 days. Like I mentioned above my last month I STRUGGLED. I’m so close to my goal weight so I’m super proud of those results! I think you can tell by the picture how this program leaned me out. If you are serious with the workouts and follow the eating plan you will have amazing results! I continue to struggle with eating, the weekends are killing me. I think my best results are that I can actually do REGULAR push ups now!
What do you get in the package:
12 workouts on 10 DVDs, nutrition to the max guide, max out guide for how to do the program, max out workout wall calendar and a no time to cook guide. If you order through a coach you’ll also get 2 free bonus workouts: Pulse (active recovery day) and Ab attack:10 (10 minute ab workout).
What is the meal plan like:
It uses the fix portion through beachbody, so if you’re familiar with 21 day fix you will completely understand Insanity Max 30s meal plan. You’re eating clean foods and balancing it across your day. My only issue is that in Insanity Max 30 there are no calorie brackets so if you weigh over 150 you eat in one bracket and if you weigh under 150 you’re in another. So, that would mean that my husband and I would be in the same bracket which just seems crazy! I also drank Shakeology every day, didn’t miss 1 day of that great shake. Why did I commit to 60 days of shakeology? It aids in my weight loss, gives me energy, keeps me full, curbs cravings and helps keep me regular. Click HERE to find out more about shakeology.
Who would I recommend this program too:
Those who are already into their fitness journey a bit. The workouts are tough, probably the toughest workouts I’ve ever done and are 100% not beginner workouts. They do offer a modifier but even those moves are tough! If you don’t like push ups, burpees, lunges or squats… do not do this program! I hate push ups but I don’t mind modifying and really enjoyed every workout in this program. There are almost no breaks and he doesn’t break the move down with how to do it. However, you can pick up on what he’s doing but I would not do this if you’re a beginner. If you’re looking to drop weight FAST and tone up without using weights, this is 100% your program. It’s a great cardio and strength workout in only 30 minutes. I did take a little bit longer to cool down (2 minutes is not enough!).
Equipment needed: None, your body is your equipment!
Modifier? Yes! And with this DVD you can split the screen so you’re seeing the modifier the whole time and you can also see what Shaun T is doing on the main screen. Scott and Danielle are the modifiers and it’s low impact (so no jumping!) but trust me… these moves are hard and a modified burpee is just as hard as a burpee when you’re just starting out. Go slow and don’t push yourself to the point of injury. I have horrible knees and ankles and was able to modify most of the workouts and still get a great workout in.
