Quick 20 Minute workout
on April 25, 2013
My wife and I are big fans of Beachbody workout DVDS. We have the P90X, the full 60 day Insanity course, Body Beast, Turbo Fire, Chalene Extreme and Power 90. I love the full Insanity workouts. They are tough, challenging and motivating. However, the workouts are long. They range from 40 minutes to 1 hour. There are some days I want to do a short but intense workout of the Insanity version. That is why I purchased the Fast and Furious DVD. This workout is about 21 minutes long, which includes the warm up, stretch, and cool down. The actual work out circuit is about 10 minutes. During those 10 minutes, there is no 30 second rest period. It is one workout after another just like the Insanity pure cardio workout. The workouts on the Fast and Furious consists of the same exercises from the the traditional Insanity workout such as ski abs, in and outs, floor sprints, oblique push ups, push up jacks, power jumps, high knee oblique twists and more.
I like the Fast and Furious, but to be honest, it is no where near as exhausting as the full Insanity workouts. I found myself doing the Fast and Furious then doing the Body Beast or P90X strength training routines right afterwards. (Yes, I mix and match for true muscle confusion!!) As a lot of reviewers stated, the quality of Fast and Furious is inferior compared to the full Insanity DVD. I agree. What I mean is, it appears the recording took place in a cramped boxing gym located in some loft in Manhattan. There are only 3 people in the workout including Shaun T. The male workout model appears to not take the workout seriously and looks winded half the time. The sound quality is on the low end. Shaun T. does not sound as motivating as he does in the Full Insanity course.
While working out with the Fast and Furious, I block out the negative qualities of the recording aspects and concentrate on the workout. This is still a decent workout DVD to have as part of my workout library.
