Dear Boys and Girls,
The other day I posted that because of my foot issues (plantaar fasciitis), I had decided to mix Chalean Extreme resistance workouts with Insanity. Once again after giving it much thought--actually, my feet were the ones doing the thinking and feeling--I have decided to let my foot pain heal before attempting to continue with Insanity.
From a coaching standpoint, I admit, I'm annoyed! I like to be able to tell folks about what a certain program can do for them. And from a fitness standpoint, I want the crazy, natural high that follows such an intense workout, not to mention the falling pants. But, I can't do it. The thought of jumping and doing high-impact work three times a week is making me not look forward to my workouts.
So: instead of forcing myself to do something that will hurt my feet and my spirits, I am letting go of Insanity for now. I am going for Chalean Extreme all the way. When my foot gets better, I will incorporate Insanity workouts here and there, as I have done with Turbo Jam, Tony's One-on-One, and Hip Hop Abs. Once again, I feel good about my decision!
I would, however, love people's feedback on Insanity. If you could kindly post your thoughts in the COMMENTS section, that would be much appreciated! I want others to be able to benefit from your feedback!
Here are some questions you might like to address:
What do you like? What don't you like? What changes have you seen?
Bring it, folks! Your friend in fitness,
