Ok, so I asked the question a few weeks ago...Insanity or P90X? I went with Insanity. I meant to start this thread last week, but just didn't get to it. I am two weeks into Insanity and I am feeling good about it so far.
My starting height and weight was 6'2" and 215 and I am 18.
My first fitness test numbers are as follows:
Switch Kicks - 74
Power Jacks - 26
Power Knees - 53
Power Jumps - 25
Globe Jumps - 10
Suicide Jumps - 11
Push up Jacks - 14
Plank Obliques - 43
Not too bad and not too far off from the models.
I am not following the nutrition guide, but I am following a pretty strict diet. I cut out all soda, white bread, potatoes, sweets, etc. I am also making sure my portion sizes are smaller than usual. I think I am doing pretty well with my own diet. A typical day is as follows:
Breakfast - Cup of light yogurt
Lunch - Whatever the cafeteria is serving, usually pretty good portion size
Snack - A mix of raisins, almonds, sunflower seeds, and pretzels
Supper - Usually centered around some type of meat with sides of some kind of vegetables
Usually I mix in my 8 cups of water and about 2 cups of milk per day.
I am getting pretty good results two weeks in. Especially in the cardio area and upper body area. I am absolutely working as hard as I can. I am drowning in sweat after the workouts, so I know I am getting the benefits from the workouts.
A question for the veterans of Insanity...
When did you start to notice REAL results in the abs area? That is the main reason I am doing this after all.
Any thoughts and suggestions from anyone would be MUCH appreciated!
