Hi, I'm new here. I've just this second stopped an Insanity workout video ( Max interval circuit ) because I didn't feel like I had much control over my legs, I felt faint and my asthma was kicking in. When I stopped I had a visual black out ( but this isn't a huge scare because I'm familiar with having low blood pressure ) Does anyone else do this workout?
I've been bodybuilding for about 5 or so years, I'm 20 now and very much self taught ( with recommendations from various guys I know ). I've had health problems in the distant past regarding fainting and generally doing the wrong thing entirely, but I'm closish to my goal now, aside from the fact that this video workout makes me miserable and my arms are addicted to the endorphins I get from weightlifting. - mentally it's a challenge and I'm always very self critical.
I would love to get the six pack I want but I don't feel able to. My workout tends to be along the lines of:
day1: weights and crunches 1h 20m~ split into two sets (WaC),
#2: Insanity Workout 47-59m (IW),
It's very flexible and I don't work out if, like now, it's posing to be a problem on my health. I do however feel very guilty and fighting against many disadvantages. It would be nice to have some input from people experienced in the field who've managed to achieve the body I'm aiming for. ( I was going to post a picture but apparently I cant ) I'm 5'4.5 and about 9st, I don't know my bodyfat percantage. I've got 30.5cm perimeter biceps and sort of a six pack. My goal is to have more definition all over, slightly bigger arms, thighs and a six pack that stays with me all day and not just the mornings and evenings.
I used to get up at 5am, do the exercise at 5:30 after breakfast, have a proteinshake and then go back to sleep. But I feel getting leaner and mentally more ontop of things is a result of getting more than 5-6 hours of sleep.
But seriously, that Insanity workout is one of the most miserable things in my life.. I use it mostly because I don't have to go out anywhere or pay anything. I can do it at home so it's really efficient as a fat burning and general toning exercise. I've been told many times that I can afford to put more fat into my diet but I can't bring myself to do it without knowing the person who's told me to do it is already at my goal. No one has been so far, so I always dismiss it.
Any help? < :/
