I tried this workout for about 6 months and it’s definitely challenging.
What I liked best is that it’s quite different from the others. It doesn’t have the craziness of Shaun T. but it pushes you in other ways. It is very controlled and it incorporates weights. Those are 2 things I was looking for.
Autumn really focuses on legs. Your legs are going to get toned, fast.
I also like the fact that it is a half hour workout. But after the first 2 months I decided to incorporate a 10 minute ab workout. I rotated between Max 30’s Ab Attack and Fit Extreme’s 10 Min Hardcore. I also added weekend workouts from Insanity Asylum Volume II. That’s where I really started to see results.
In the last month I switched from 2 ten pound dumbbells to 2 fifteen pound dumbbells. I know it doesn’t sound like a lot of weight but try doing presses in middle of a jumping jack. Unfortunately I discovered that my ankles can’t take that kind of punishment. I could have returned to the ten pounders but instead I chose to return to Insanity: Max 30. That is until I choose the next workout video.
The fact that I only did this workout for 6 months (instead of a year) is not due to the workout. I was finding that 1 year is simply too long. Not only do I get bored but the results start to diminish. So from here on in you’ll probably see me continuing this 6 month trend.
So, if you’re looking for something that is very different than the norm I would recommend this video. Just be careful on your weight selection.
