What's this "Intensity" you speak about?
Anyway, at my height bu around 40lbs lighter you definitely need to put on some weight. Whilst a good routine is needed, what's much more important is eating right. Right now you need a good amount of calories per day, probably around the 3,000 calorie mark or a bit more. If you've just started working out I suggest you stick to a regular beginner's routine (read the stickies)."Pain is temporary. It my last for a minute, an hour, or a day. Or even a year. But eventually - it will subside, and something else will take its place. If I quit however, it will last forever."
"But it ain't about how hard you can hit - it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!"
"Get up, and don't ever give up".

I like insanity, but you have to make sure you're following that diet plan that comes with it. You will lose fat, but if you're eating right and taking in enough protein, you'll build muscle too. The problem I had with insanity is there is a lot of jumping, I have bad knees, and I was always way too sore to want to keep doing it.
Honestly, at 18, id say start that beginners routine and research proper diet principals

Insanity will not cause you to gain much muscle at all. No matter how your diet is. Not really even advertised that way actually. Look at the guys in the video, they put almost no mass on, just cut up really well. At 130 lbs if your goal is to "get bigger" than I would avoid it. Good program but not really designed for packing on muscle. Go to the stickies and look up Starting Strength or All pro and run a program like that. Eat with a surplus to faciliate muscle growth from it and you will be fine.
