How effective is the insanity workout program?

How effective is the insanity workout program?

Outcome=effort: All exercise programs are only as good as the effort and persistence you put it. That said, few if any have been tested in fda type trials. Many of these video programs are too hard if you haven't been working out and pain, stiffness and fatigue stops you as soon as you start. Talk with your doctor and consider a session or a few w a personal trainer to ensure the right program for you. Read more

Can you give me suggestions with insanity the workout program?

Can you give me suggestions with insanity the workout program?

I looked at the: Hype online. It seems questionable to me. A 60 day program seems too short and may lead to rapid weight loss that may come back just as quickly. I would have a physical before doing any extreme workout program. I would recommend starting exercising gradually and increasing it over time. Find exercises that you enjoy and can continue for life not for just 60 days. Read more

Are there any good women's cardio workout program recommendations?

Are there any good women's cardio workout program recommendations?

Many!: I think cycling and walking/running are the easiest cardio-sports to engage in. Although greaqt sporting activities, they can be done alone or in groups. They can bec done outdoors and indoors. But I also favor mixing cardio with resistence to strengthen muscle. The new p90x program is excellent, and their are many programs that can be done at home with the wii fit and x-box. They offer variety! Read more

What is a good workout program I can do to get bigger and stronger?

What is a good workout program I can do to get bigger and stronger?

Body Beast: Have a look at the above program...And "dial-it-back" from there! Seriously, putting on serious muscle and gaining size is not easy to do without focused motivation, adding more calories than you'd need for basic fitness training, lifting heavy, and resting a lot. My vote would be accomplish this gradually, over time. Read more

Can you tell me what is the best workout program to gain muscle?

Can you tell me what is the best workout program to gain muscle?

Muscle mass: Make sure your health is good by seeing your doc. Then work w/a personal trainer at the gym. Eat plenty of protein. This can be in the form of protein powder drink each morning, eggs & cheese if you are lacto-vegetarian. Seeds and nuts good also. Vegetarians can become low in vitamin B 12. SUBLINGUAL B 12 tablets can help w/that. Peace and good health. Read more

What's P90X workout program? And does it work for people who have low fitness? Does it help to lose weight fast in addition to going to the gym? Thanks

What's P90X workout program? And does it work for people who have low fitness? Does it help to lose weight fast in addition to going to the gym? Thanks

Exercise programs: The ideal program is dependent on the physical state of the individual. Many folks in poor physical condition try vigorous workouts with weights or other strenuous activity to "hurry up" progress. But jumping, stretching, and body contortions in the less fit, like with p90--may may them so uncomfortable they quickly give up. Do a tailored program at the gym with a trainer--then go out on your own. Read more

Is it okay for me to do a workout program taking supplements they provide while having an anxiety disorder?

Is it okay for me to do a workout program taking supplements they provide while having an anxiety disorder?

PROBABLY YES: Taking supplements in and of themselves is not harmful. This is because supplements do not have side-effects, a property of prescription drugs. It is generally known that exercise can help reduce anxiety, as can the Amino Acid theonine and homeopathic kali phos. If not, there is behavioral modification and/or medication (s). A beta blocker can help in mvp patients as 10% of them may have anxiety. Read more

I started the insanity workout program 3 weeks ago (today is day 20). I have started having terrible ankle pains. What is going on and what do I do?

I started the insanity workout program 3 weeks ago (today is day 20). I have started having terrible ankle pains. What is going on and what do I do?

Take a break: A little less insanity and some ice to the ankles. I think they are being a little overworked. Check and see if you have flatfeet or overly pronate if you do, an orthotic in your sneakers would help take some pressure off the ankles when performing your workouts. Read more
