1) Insanity Asylum Volume 2: Focus on FAILURE (While maintaining proper FORM)

2 ways to Maximize your Insanity ResultsIf your ultimate goal is to get through the entire Insanity Asylum Volume 2 workout without stopping, YOUR APPROACH IS TOTALLY WRONG.  Insanity, Insanity Asylum, and the upcoming Insanity Asylum Volume 2, were designed to push you to FAILURE.  If you think I’m full of Hooey, just take a look at the people on the videos!  After a while, many of them are falling out on the floor.  Is this a good thing? YES!!   You need to PUSH yourself as hard and as long as you can (while keeping good form) until you can’t go any further.  Failure is your GOAL.  Why?  Each time you push to FAILURE, you trigger what we call in the Sports Science world, “Cardiorespiratory Adaptation” .   Over time, as you continue to FAIL and trigger this adaptation, something truly wonderful happens.  The body increases its lung volume; increases hypertrophy of the left ventricular wall; increases volume of the left ventricle to increase stroke volume and, as a result, facilitates delivery of oxygenated blood to the working muscles; decreases heart rate, increases capillary density; increases the lactate threshold so that you can perform at a higher rate of oxygen consumption; and increases the your over all aerobic efficiency.  When you process oxygen better, every physiological response improves.  In short, you are turning into a heart pumping, body moving “bad ass”.

Don’t underestimate the Effectiveness of the Insanity Asylum Volume 2 Fit Tests

So how do you know if you are effectively triggering your Cardiorespiratory Adaptation?   Progress Baby!  Keeping diligent records of your “Insanity Asylum Volume 2” Fit Tests is key.  Moreover, you must resolve in your mind to increase your performance by a certain predetermined percentage each time you take the test.  Many of my clients who have gone through Insanity and Insanity Asylum pushed for a 10-20% increase every time we took the test.  The tests are every two weeks, so you don’t have much time.  This is actually a good thing — with a short term performance goal, you’ll increase your FOCUS.  With a sharpened FOCUS, you’ll be more inclined to not only push yourself to failure (while maintaining proper form), you’ll bear in mind all of the little things that attribute to maximizing your body’s ability to adapt and get stronger.  You’ll dial into your nutrition plan (see below), keep hydrated, get the proper amount of rest, become consistent with your workouts, etc.

The Numbers Never Lie, especially with Insanity Asylum Volume 2

OK, all of this sounds good on paper, but does it really work?  Take a look at the above Insanity performance graph of Kathryn, one of my former clients.  Her average Insanity increase was an astounding 74%!!!  By focussing on 10 percent gains every time she did her Fit Tests, she was more inclined to do whatever it took to achieve her immediate goal.  Below is a clip of one of her fit tests.  Notice how I am shouting (yeah, I get intense, lol) numbers at her to keeping her mind focussed on her target rep number to beat her previous personal best.  Moreover, notice how she continues to push your body towards failure throughout the workout?

2)Insanity Asylum Volume 2: Zone into your NUTRITION

When you start your “Insanity Asylum Volume 2” program, don’t be afraid to tweak your nutrition plan.  Take some time to outline your fitness goals and choose a corresponding nutrition approach that will fit those needs – If you need help, reach out to your Beachbody Coach to get this setup for you, as this is a CRITICAL STEP.  If you don’t have a coach, don’t be afraid to reach out to me.  Insanity’s nutrition plan is meal based plan and appears to be based on a 40/40/20 macronutrient split. This is a very safe and general split that is very good for maintaining your results.  If you are already lean, like Kathryn, and want to want to build a bit more muscle, you may need to take a different approach.  In the case of Kathryn, to best meet her specific body composition goals, we deviated from the Insanity nutrition guide, and decided on using the P90X nutrition guide’s “Shredder Phase”. We ended up adding an additional daily serving of carbs to ensure that she had enough energy to really push through. If you are also looking to add muscle, but find yourself needing to add more carbs to your diet, try and choose the following carbs that are naturally high in protein:

  • Quinoa ½ cup cooked – 19.7 grams protein (Wow!!)
  • Edamame, ½ cup cooked – 14 grams protein
  • Beans (black, pinto, garbanzo, etc)  1/2 cup of cooked – 10 grams protein
  • Lentils, ½ dry cup – 9 grams protein
  • Chickpeas, ½ cup cooked – 6 grams

Are these the only things to consider?
