Ok so last year I tried to go from couch to insanity.. Major fail. So my plan is to work into it. My goal is January/February to start insanity. Until then my plan is to do the squat and another challenge (plank, crunch, leg lift) then December do the burpee challenge (I hope to include a few other exercises along with the burpees maybe continue with the previous) I like the challenges because they aren't a do 500 the first day and die exercise. You build on it. Does this sound like a plan? Any advice or recommendations is greatly appreciated. :)

Well,when I started insanity,I was not such of great form..cardio especially,which I was lacking a lot..but u get used to it,what I recommend you,is to built a good foundation especially the core with abs workouts,pilates or yoga..increase ur stamina with jog or jump rope..build your arm power either with push ups or weights,until you feel enough strong,hope to have help you

Did you have good results with insanity? As badly as I want to get in shape and everything its still better than sitting in the couch but I still want to hear from real people that it works lol

Lol,I thought the same..but you have to carry on..embrace your insane part as we say..Yes amazing results:D..lost only 5 pounds but gain muscle mass and lost 2 size of jeans and clothes..the best advice is to be comited..even if it hurts,ur tired or ill(in my case),I keep pushing play..keep pushing play
