I promised to provide a review on this from my earlier blog Insanity Asylum Volume 1, so here it is…
I ended up doing Volume 2 for most of 2015. However, I have to be honest. I was not quite a diligent compared to Volume 1, mostly because of a hamstring injury which hindered me for most of the year.
Overall, Volume 2 is harder than Volume 1. It focuses more on strength/toning and less on cardio compared to Volume 1. Also, the workouts are longer.
I liked the format a lot better. A repeated 7-day regime makes more sense than a 30-day routine to me.
Towards the end of 2015 I focused more on my diet. Once I did that, the results came quickly.
Would I recommend Volume 2? ABSOLUTELY.
Would I recommend Volume 2 over Volume 1? ABSOLUTELY. The workouts aren’t that much longer, and if you’re already willing to put in the time why not go the extra mile. With that said, I have to admit that the hardest workout so far comes from Volume 1 (GameDay & Overtime). If you can incorporate that into a rest day or stretch day, you’re doing really well.
Be warned, just like Volume 1, Volume 2 is hard on the body. After 4 weeks you might want to switch to a less demanding workout for about a week and then get back to Volume 2 if you desire.
What’s next? I can’t resist. I’ve heard so much about Insanity Max:30.
