It’s a known and proven fact that exercise plays an important part in our daily lives. According to the website, http://www.whyiexercise.com/benefits-of-physical-fitness.html, the health benefits linked to regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle are of utmost importance in maintaining the overall well-being of the body and the mind. Apart from reducing weight and improving the strength and muscle tone of a person’s body, regular exercise has been known to increase energy levels, reduce the risk of diseases like diabetes and even improve brain function. But, staying fit has always had its share of obstacles. Not many people have the time to visit the local gym to undergo fitness training under the guidance of a physical trainer.
So, what can such people do to solve the problems that they face due to the lack of exercise? One of the best ways to solve this is to set up a regular exercise routine at home. Two of the names that keep popping up in this regard are the Focus t 25 and Insanity. These videos have since their launch earned almost iconic levels of fame throughout the world. By doing just a simple Google search, we can see the levels of popularity both of these programs have garnered, as well as the success stories that have been recounted umpteen times through various social-media platforms.
Both Focus T25 and Insanity are intensive, fat-burning, heart-pounding and highly vigorous fitness workout regimens that can be performed in the comfort of the living-room in your homes. Both of these workout videos are the brainchild of an extremely motivating and energetic physical trainer called Shaun T. Many are now familiar with this muscleman, who apart from being a qualified fitness trainer is also an accomplished dancer and choreographer.
So, what’s the difference between these two workouts?
Let’s start with the T25. It’s a high intensity, cardiovascular workout that’s going to take only 25 minutes of a person’s time. That’s right. The program aims to deliver results by getting people to work-out for 25 minutes each day, 5 days a week and for a total of 10 weeks which comes to around 60 days. The only equipment recommended is a pair of dumb bells or a resistance band to aid in the weight-training routines during the work-out. One of the major advantages for those undergoing the T25 fitness regimen is the inclusion of modified movements of each exercise. That is, a person who is unable to do exactly what is shown in the video will also be shown very basic movements based on those exercises, making it perfect for people who aren’t comfortable.
Insanity, on the other hand, is an even more intensive cardio-based workout routine set to test the limits of a person’s endurance. It is a grueling 45-minute workout, spanning 6 days a week and going on for a total of 60 days. It really isn’t meant for beginners as it is so rigorous that the only equipment you’ll ever need is heart monitor. There are no modifications shown for the exercises making it really inflexible.
Make an informed choice before venturing into either of these exercise routines.
