    Has anyone tried it? What did you think of it? Thinking of trying it, only thing I'm worried about it is stripping my weight. I have a hard enough time keeping ten pounds as is because my metabolism is overactive.

    Can I skip the activities that are directed towards "weight loss"?

    Thoughts?

    Yeah, but the doc put me on meds for it.

    It's expensive.

    If you don't maintain a high caloric diet, you will drop weight. The program is geared towards high intense interval training.

    If your goal is to gain muscle mass, it probably isn't the program for you. To gain mass you'll have to lift heavy weights and increase your caloric intake, especially protein and fat.

    I like this program for weights. Try it with a large increase in food intake and see how it goes: http://whole9life.com/the-603-ptp/

    I used Insanity last year and lost weight doing it. I think it's a decent program overall. However, if you are looking to add bulk or even want to maintain mass, I don't think it's the best way to go.

    Having seen Insanity and P90X work for one of my brothers and his wife I've decided to occasionally intermix both of those with my gym routine. From P90X I've decided to never plateau, and to keep my heart pumping!

    Iris decent if you want to lean down. I found it very repetitive though.

    Yes! I found it very repetitive. So much so that I dreaded continuing with it after a few weeks. Not because it was hard but because it was so monotonous. I saw great results in the first couple of weeks but then, as with everything, your body becomes used to it and there are fewer results. I think it's best to mix it in with your regular routine every now and then.

    Those guys workout at the local gym 6 times a week, eat like a rabbit and do cardio till the heart almost falls out. The info-commercial company pays them a few $$ to come on board and advertise their silly girly equipment. Go to the gym and do what men do .. lift weights.

    Did Insanity. It's definitely not for anyone trying to gain mass. It's strictly cardio, and intense cardio at that. As an avid runner, I was fairly worn out through most of month 2.

    Stick to the weights and protein/calories to keep/gain the weight you want. Just throw in cardio every so often so you aren't an in-shape/out of shape guy ;)
