Here lately the the two HOTTEST workouts on the Beachbody market are Shaun T’s Insanity and Sagi Kalev’s Body Beast. To go along with that are popular questions comparing the two. So Im going to do a Body Beast vs Insanity break down. — I going to stick this in at the top also, (I usually put this at the bottom). If you have any comments please feel free to leave them! I love hearing your feedback and if I’ve helped you in your decision towards a workout, or you’ve gotten one from my site please share this with your social networks and/or leave a comment! — I’ve done both workouts. In fact right now Im trying to create a hybrid schedule to do both Body Beast and Insanity for a 90 day cycle. Comparing these two workouts is like comparing golf balls to base balls. Both are round, both are hit with an object, and both can travel a long distance. They sound very similar. Two completely different games though. Both workouts will leave you exhausted, sweaty, and will get you in great shape. The road to travel though is very, very different.
It’s high impact interval training. Right out of the gate it seems like your going 110 mph. I remember when I first did Insanity the warmup kicked my but. You go straight into jogging in place to jumping jacks, to mountain climbers and jumping rope (a pretend jump rope) and then you do it again a little faster, then one more time as fast as you can. Then you stretch. Then you start your workout. Don’t let that scare you though! Insanity for me improved my endurance 100%. It’s always my favorite summertime workout because in the summer most people love being outside whether its working in the yard, playing sports or just messing around with friends or the kids out in the yard. After the first time I did Insanity I remember running in my first race, ever! It was a 10K race. I didn’t even know how long a 10K was. The friend that I was running with was making fun of me, telling me they were going to beat me. Well to make a long story short I ended up beating them by almost 3 minutes. I had never felt better. My heart rate was under control, I wasn’t even out of breath. Thanks to Insanity! Theres virtually no equipment needed for this workout. All you really need is 1. water and 2. a soft surface to jump around on. You will sit on the ground also to do some of the moves, so a concrete floor isn’t the best idea for that, so a least have some sort of mat that you can sit on. Oh and have a good pare of shoes! Most all the moves you can do with in a 6′ x 6′ area and thats plenty. All the moves are pretty simple to do. But Shaun T doesn’t play around. His combination of moves keeps your heart rate up and the sweat flowing. You can check out this short video to see what you can expect from Shaun T’s Insanity.
With Insanity you will get in amazing shape. You can get 6 pack abs, toned muscles and you will eventually be able to perform your favorite activities at an athletes pace. Well at least close to that. Your body will be conditioned to handle just about any activity you throw at it. I like extreme sports, activities and mud runs. This is the perfect workout to get ready for something like that. Of course you don’t have to like any of that stuff to like Insanity. Bottom line if you just want a great workout that doesn’t involve equipment then this is your workout.
This is a little slower paced workout. Don’t be fooled though! This workout is jam packed with old school weight lifting techniques with some new school moves to. Sagi has been a body builder for a long time. He really knows how to help you get bigger and stronger muscles in just 90 days! The best part is he’s done it all naturally. By that I mean that Sagi hasn’t used steroids to get where he’s at. I liked doing this workout because it was completely different from any other workout that I’d done in the past few years. Its basically all weight lifting. I increased my muscle mass much more than I thought I would. There is some cardio with the Beast program. Again don’t be fooled. With all the weight that your throwing up, you’ll burn some massive calories with it. You can achieve 6 pack abs, bigger arms, lats, shoulders, chest and legs. Any muscle you can name, you’ll see some improvement in. This is strength training. Thats really it in a nut shell.
The reason I want to create a hybrid between the Body Beast and Insanity is because Im looking to achieve the muscles and have the performance of an athlete. I’m not sure that I’ll obtain the same amount of mass, but thats what Im going to do this time. With Body Beast there is equipment that you’ll need. And to go along with it, I would highly recommend the supplements to go with it. My personal opinion is, if you do Body Beast without the supplements, Its like buying a car and never putting gas in it. And using something besides twhat’s been formulated for the Beast workout is like buying a car that that requires 93 gas and you put in 87, it just doesn’t make sense. I have another post on the Equipement and Supplements if you want to read up more on it or you can check out resources from MyBodyLife if you are an intense powerlifter and are planning to upgrade your supplement intake.
Check out this short video on what the Beast is like.
Really its not just with Body Beast and Insanity, it’s with all the Beachbody workouts. Its the Nutrition. Both the Beast and Insanity come with a well planned nutrition guide. Again they are both very different. Insanity is going to help you in eating things that will help you lose weight and get those toned muscles. Body Beast also has a healthy guide, but its food is more focused on helping you get the required calories to get the muscle mass.
Something to consider with both workouts, is Shakeology. Its just smart nutrition.
So which workout is it going to be for you? The easiest and most economical way to get these workouts is with a Challenge Pack. The Challenge pack has all you need in it. With the Beast you get the workouts, the nutrition plan and all the supplements. See Eiyo if you haven’t chosen the natural supplements that suit you best. With Insanity, you get the workout, the nutrition guide and Shakeology. Of course if you just want the workouts you can get that too.
