Getting crazy with Shaun T.!
This is my third week of the Insanity Max 30 program. MAX 30 is a Shaun T fitness program. It’s 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week for 60 days. I was nervous to try the program and the description definitely had me second guessing myself!! Everyone I talk to says this is the program to follow to uncover the abs!
The program arrived in a great looking Insanity Max 30 box, an excellent nutrition guide book with full-page, full-color recipes and food lists. I love the way Beachbody packages their products! Everything fits in the box in a certain way – I always feel like it was prepared especially for me! Lol
The workout dvd’s are organized in two sections – one for each month of the program and the fitness snippets about each workout are encouraging 😉 Here’s an example from Tabata Strength.
“You won’t see this until halfway through month 1 because Shaub T takes it up a notch (or two) in this NO REST, Tabata-style workout.” Hmmmm??
Tabata style is 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off on a move. 20 seconds can sure seem like a LONG TIME!
I have done a great job of keeping up with the workouts. I definitely Max Out early and could probably push a little bit harder. I do the entire 30 minutes. My goal for week four is to try and beat my max out times. I may as well, because after this week the workouts change – it’ll be almost like starting over – like a new program, but not quite.
Here’s a snippet from Max Out Strength from the month 2 calendar.
“Max strength and max fat burn are what you’ll get from this “45 second on, 15 second off” Tabata-style routine. Your arms, shoulders, chest and core will be toast after this workout.” Uh-ok, I guess!
The container program for eating was familiar to me, but for those who would not be familiar with it it would be easy to follow and having a set of containers would be helpful. If you’re not familiar with the Portion Fix container program, here’s a short video about how the containers work.
Here are a few of the meals I prepared during the first couple weeks of Insanity Max 30. Next week will be very similar to the previous, but i know I have to be vigilant to get all the containers in in a day and drink all my water.

I will have to suspend my later part of the program during month two – read all about it in the Challenge Time post!! The July Summer Sweat group is forming now for anyone in need of encouragement and support to succeed with their health and fitness efforts.
