What is Insanity Max 30?

What is Insanity Max 30?

So a little background on myself, I started in a challenge group last May of 2013 and started with a program ChaLean Extreme had an awesome transformation after not being able to lose the baby weight from our second daughter. After that I went on to do T25 and then Insanity last fall at this same time of the year. I know some of you have completed Insanity and some have not let's just say it's hard even as a health coach finding the time to commit to 60 minute workouts in month 2 was hard. I did it and had the best definition I ever had in my abs (after 2 C-sections).   Shawn T is all about working the core and Max 30 will not let you down in that area. If your core is an area you struggle with and you hate doing "traditional" sit ups this will be a win.

So of course I'm thrilled to learn more about this program based on just the fact that the workouts are 30 minutes long 5 days a week (not 6) and the program is 8 weeks long broke down into two sections or blocks however you want to refer to them.
So unlike Insanity for the entire program max30 will have a camera on a  modifier.

What type of training is it?

 Tabata training- meaning you start very intense in a move and goes less strong to complete.
First month on you go hard for 20 seconds rest for 10 seconds. Each "set" of moves lasting 4 minutes 30 seconds.
Unlike Insanity you don't have a fit test every two weeks rather each day you try and max out your time.
What does the challenge pack include?
12 workouts
10 DVD's
nutritional guide
(no equipment needed)
30 days of dense nutrition (shakeology)

Month one workouts

 -Cardio challenge- It's like a fit test and your maxing out in cardio
-Sweat intervals- all cardio as well and you sweat the entire time
-Tabata power- designed to focus on your core
-Tabata strength- total body building strength
-Friday fight round- Since this is a 5 day program Friday is all out Insane workout for 30 minutes.
Optional in month one for Saturday morning- a workout called pulse designed on improving balance, core, and form

Here is the thing this is not meant to scare you out of doing the program but rather to stretch your mind in what you’re capable of doing. More than likely your mind is the first thing to talk you out of trying something new. Keep in mind you have a modifier. And if your workouts don't give you challenge everyday your body will plateau.

Month 2 workouts

-Max out cardio
-Max out sweat
-Max out power
-Max out strength
-Friday fight round 2

Month two the times go from 4 minutes 30 seconds to 5 minutes 30 seconds.
*Note the goal is to max out and increase your time. However when you max out the program is not over. You take a break and jump back in.

Nutritional guide-

 Is focused around portion control with flexibility. How many of you know about the 21 day fix portion control containers? You have the option to use those with this nutritional guide. Portion control is a good thing managing you're eating so your eating more often and keeping your metabolism burning.
That brings me to when you purchase you can buy the base challenge pack or the deluxe kit.

The deluxe kit comes with those great portion control containers

 Three extra workouts including max out abs (15 minutes long), 360 abs that works the core all around, along with a top secret workout.

Shawn T really recommends doing the program 5 days straight and taking 2 rest days, your body is going to need it. Unlike Insanity you won't have a recovery week. This will allow your body to fully recover and become stronger for the following week.
