I’ve gone Insane & Committed Myself in the Asylum

Last week I was sick, injured and super busy, which interfered with my over achieving, muscle-twitching workout routine. It drove me crazy to go five days without exercise! This week, I’m doing extra fitness credit to A) Feel like I’m making-up for last week, and B) See if I can do two workouts a day without dying.  As I mentioned before, I completed the Insanity workout program already. After mixing Insanity with other workouts for a few weeks, I decided I wanted to kick my ass again. So where do go after you go Insane? You check yo booty into The Asylum of course!

Craziness + Exercise = Winning

Craziness + Exercise = Winning

Asylum is a 30 day program that uses intense sports cross training. The video focuses on Agility, Strength, Back & Core, Plyometrics, Stretching, etc. It’s the post-graduate program  to Insanity.

dare-asylum2What I Like About The Program

  • This workout makes Insanity feel like a walk in the park. You never leave feeling like you didn’t work hard enough.
  • You don’t need lots of equipment. Asylum calls for weights, pull-up bar, resistance bands and an agility ladder, but there are alternate moves for those who don’t have full home gym. I did fine with weights and a cleared space.
  • I love Shaun T. He balances pushing and encouraging well, so I feel motivated and not bullied. Who wants to be yelled at? I don’t. I mean, I’m doing the best I can! Sheesh!
  • Asylum is not too repetitious and has variety. I complained that Insanity was very repetitive. The warm-ups and cool downs were always the same, and the interval training was not ADD friendly. Asylum has a few interval variations, but they are not as lather, rinse repeat as Insanity.
  • There are two add-on workouts, one for stretching and the other for fifteen minutes of extra work. These are great to mix with all my routines if I want more of a challenge or overdid it and need a good recovery stretch.

What I Didn’t Love About Asylum

  • I’m not an athlete, so all the sports-related goals don’t speak to me. Shaun T will say “You better run faster! The other team is going to beat you!” And I’m like “I don’t give a crap. Are my inner thighs slimmer yet?”
  • The program is only 30 days, so unless you’re already a pro athlete, it will take 30 days just for you to get into the swing of things. Of course, there are programs that mix this and Insanity, so I guess that fixes this and my next complaint.
  • Needs Moar Cardio. See, Insanity had A LOT of cardio, which I liked and disliked at the same time. Asylum has much less. Combining both makes a challenging but more balanced fitness plan.

Would I Recommend Asylum?

Heck yes I would! I will warn you though. This is an advanced program, so if you are new or getting back into working out after being on hiatus for a while, you may want to start with something less extreme and build your way up. Asylum isn’t kidding around.

Now if I could just LOOK like I’ve completed these programs…LOL
