This past winter I start using the Insanity Workout DVDs that a couple of friends recommended. They explained to me that it was interval training but flipped upside down and a hell of a workout. I thought that I’d give it a try, thinking it would be fairly easy… Well I was wrong.. I’ve had many sport trainings and workouts however, the Insanity Workout with Shaun T and company its probably one of the best and hardest that I’ve done.
It is 60 days of pure interval training at very high levels. The first month alone is enough to smack someone lol.. But I love the hard work throughout the week. Training 5 days a week and a fit tests after every two weeks. I noticed lots of improvements and thought to myself during the offseason, that this would be awesome for basketball players. My current Insanity schedule is waking up between 7-8 am to get it out of the way. Later in the afternoon some hoops.
The program includes a diet plan that could easily fit for basketball players during the off-season and some of the workouts cater to different sports including basketball. Defensive position, vertical jump improvement, core body strength and get shoulder arm workouts for shooting.
I highly recommend the Insanity Workout and would love to see how much you improve!!

Insanity is a great program, especially for building up the legs.
