Insanity Workout

Anyone here done it or doing it? I started on Monday after a couple of weeks of building up to it. It's very good. Very hard but the instructor, Shaun T, keeps you motivated - more motivated than i'd be by myself, and all the exercises are adaptable and just done at your own pace, even though you're encouraged to 'push it'.

I find exercise very beneficial for my spiritual practice... improved concentration, focus, clarity, energy etc. Although I can feel quite irritable post-exercise, but, again, this is good testing ground for my practice too.

    Let me guess... It's not free? Hahah.
    Sorry! That's the first thing that came up :)
    I do crossfit as my training, exercise is such a fantastic tool.

  • It's free if you download it illegally a la me!

    :) You might like it. I feel like a stick of dynamite post-workout.

    No, no, I don't literally feel like a stick of dynamite, it was a simile.

    Again, just to clarify, I am 100% human-being.

    Ah OK. Understood.

    Thought you might have a percentage reserved for Buddha Dynamite ...

    I did it for a while; it's tough. Mrs Tosh is a fan of it also, she uses it to supplement her running.
