Ironically, Insanity Max30 was the very first program I purchased. I didn’t purchase it with a challenge pack, though (which includes the nutrition plan & Shakeology); rather, I bought the DVDs on their own. I sampled a few workouts, but because I wasn’t plugged into a challenge group, I didn’t stick with it. It sat on our shelf until I had my second child.
Insanity Max 30 rocked my socks off. I absolutely am in love with this program. Insanity Max 30 is a 60-day program created by Shaun T (same creator of Insanity, CIZE, etc), divided into two months of different sets of workouts that are just 30 minutes long. But, trust me, 30 minutes is all you need, as the workouts are challenging & will leave you “maxed out.” But, that’s the goal!! The idea is to go as hard as you can for as long as you can, and, each day simply make progress so that you’re ultimately able to make it through the entire 30 minutes before you “max out.”
These workouts don’t require any equipment—just you and your body weight. After having done 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, and the Master’s Hammer & Chisel, which all incorporated weight lifting, I was afraid I wouldn’t like Insanity Max 30. I was shocked at how much I loved using just my bodyweight to gain strength & lean out. The nutrition plan is similar to the 21 Day Fix in that it helps you figure out how many portions you need daily of the essential food groups (protein, healthy fats, veggies, fruits, seeds/dressings, oils/nut butters, and carbs) based on your weight and goals. Unlike the 21 Day Fix, though, it does not come with the colored portion containers. However, these containers could be ordered separately!
This program pushed me to the absolute limits, and, I could not be more happy with my results. I started this program six weeks after having my second child (son, Jameson). In the 60 days, I lost 7.75 inches and 7.4 pounds. Honestly, though, the numbers were not as important as how I felt. After having my second child, I felt more confident. I felt stronger & fitter than before my pregnancy. I felt like I was back to me.
