Today I have officially finished the Insanity Fitness program. 9 weeks of the toughest exercise I have ever done and some of the most fun I’ve had while doing it.
I started at 99.7kg (219 pounds / 15.7 stone) and now weigh in at 95.2kg (209 pounds / 14.9 stone). That might seem like a lot but the program is designed to build lean muscle and it absolutely has. My body shape has changed a lot (for the better) and my strength has increases, aswell as my speed and my general fitness has skyrocketed. I did a “home” percentage test and got 22.5%. I’m down to 20.5% now.
Important to note that I don’t look even close to anyone in those before and after photos or in the above picture but we all know that never happens and that wasn’t my reason for doing it anyway. My reasons were to get fitter and stronger to enable me to try and become a better football player. Season begins in two weeks and I’m ready for the challenge.
I didn’t do the final fit test at the end of the program though, I’ll do that tomorrow because I’ve decided to continue on right up until the first game against Waterford, before changing it up to running and DDP Yoga during the season.
Couldn’t recommend it more. It’s absolutely worth doing. I’m sure tons of other people have gotten way better results than me so if you think my numbers are low, don’t let that deter you. I don’t get enough sleep and still eat too much Subway but that’s life, I can only do my best and I’m fairly chuffed to have completed it.
