What Is Insanity Max 30?
The folks over at Beach Body are releasing a new Shaun T. Workout DVD series bearing the title: Insanity Max: 30. Due to release in December 2014, there is more than likely going to be a lot of hype leading-up to the launch date and if you are a fan of Insanity, or Focus T25, this will be a Beach Body program worthy of adding to your collection.
How is Insanity Max: 30 Different from Insanity or Focus T25?
The Max: 30 program has a different format than both Insanity and Focus T25, although it does share the shorter length of workout duration like that of T25. On the other hand, the intensity of the workouts in the series are on par, if not even more extreme than what we are used to from Insanity albeit shorter sessions.
That’s where the similarity ends. There are over 150 new moves in the program. Some of which were rumored to even be challenging to Shaun T. himself.
What Is The Format of The Insanity Max 30 Program?
The format of Insanity Max: 30 is unlike what we are used to seeing from Beach Body. There is a timer at the bottom of the screen that you follow to see just how long you can push each session before you “Max Out”.
Once you Max Out, meaning you are at a point where you just have to take a break, you record your time. This time becomes your baseline, and each time you work out, the goal is to beat that time each session going forward.
What this should do is help challenge yourself to pick-up the pace and push yourself to higher levels of fitness by beating your prior goal each time.
What Are Max: 30 workouts like?
Based on what I have seen, the first workout is designed to be much like the Fit Test from Insanity. This will help you determine how strong (fit) you are before starting the series.
The Insanity Max: 30 Fit Test is rumored to be aptly named: “Cardio Challenge”
It is a high energy DVD that starts with a warm-up, a short stretch break, then 3 rounds of exercises with a 30 second break. This gets repeated 5 times in 30 minutes.
If any of you have tried Focus T25, the 25 minute DVDs will get working-up quite a sweat. I can imagine that Insanity Max 30 will deliver big in this department.

Who Is Max: 30 For?
This program is great for anyone who is looking to get in great shape, or even take their fitness levels to a much higher level. It is also great for people who don’t want to spend time in the gym or messing around with equipment.
Just pop-in the DVD, press play, and Max Out!
Short duration workouts, 30 minutes or less, are a great time saver too and it is amazing how great of shape you can get in with short sessions.
Insanity Max: 30 also follows focus T25 with modifier exercises that will accommodate most anyone. This is great because it gives you a lot of flexibility to do the workouts if you have limited mobility or prefer an alternative exercise over one of the standard ones.
Does Max 30 Require Equipment?
At this time, the answer appears to be no. This is really great for the reasons mentioned above and it helps keep things simple.
Where Can I Find Reviews?
Unfortunately Insanity Max: 30 reviews aren’t really going to be available until December, and believe me, you will find one here on High Intensity Workouts. This is the program that will keep the Holiday foods at bay and keep me lean throughout winter. I am willing to bet on that.
What’s The Bottom Line on Insanity Max: 30?
I am quite certain that this program is well worth adding to my arsenal. I still pop-in an Insanity DVD now and then, and I have completed 2 full rounds of Focus T25. I am looking forward to what this program has to offer and I really like the self-challenging timer concept. I believe this will keep most of us honest.
Be sure to check back here often since I will be making updates as frequently as I receive information. Meanwhile, be sure to check-out the videos I have hosted here for a sneak peak.
