    I am thinking about doing two workouts per day; one in the morning and one in the evening. Anyone have experience with combining a beachbody program with Insanity Max 30?

    If you can, that would probably be good. How much do you currently do? Perhaps increase it gradually at the beginning

    I agree. Both can be done but do it gradually, not to over do it on your body. I know walking is a far cry from an Insanity work out, but I just recently bumped my walk up from 3 mi in the am to now 3 mi in the am and then another 3 mi in the pm and I can totally feel the difference on my body. It's getting a little ether though the more I do it. Hope this helps, and sending you good vibes for whatever decision you make 😊

    Turning 45 next week. Would really like to lose 27lbs through Summer. I know it's doable, I just have terrible food discipline. Making a new MFP for like the 100th time!

    What's the exercise plan for today? I’m going for a hike with my husband. Sun is out, perfect day to hit the trails! However you decide to move, have fun doing it.

    This is what happened while on my hike. Came across two pet bunnies being walked on leashes and wild artichoke growing along the path. Nice!

    We are all saying hi and being friendly, which is great! However, I'd like to know what everyone is doing for exercise. At home programs? Gym? Running? I'm currently doing Insanity: Max 30. Anyone else doing this or a similar program?

    Cardio which basically include, power walks, light inclined jogging (can’t jog fast cos of my ankles), punching bag (good for full body workout and builds the core)

    Walking twice a day currently. I am too heavy to start running again yet, so a 2.5-mile walk first thing in the morning and another 2.5 miles while my daughter is at soccer practice. Baby-steps...
