I've been logging it as circuit training but don't know if that's right. There is a guy who posted that he has a heart rate monitor and scrolls down to 'other' on the list of exercises and it let's you manually input the exercise you've done and the number of calories burned - this sounds like the right thing to do but I don't have a heart rate monitor.

Is there a "near death experience" category? lol I would go with what gtx73 is saying, find a way to track your personal expenditure and then input that. I remember one day during Phase 2 when you have to do the Fit Test with Max Plyo Cardio Circuit or whichever it is, I topped 1000 calories that day, so my heart rate monitor said.

How long have you all been doing the program?

Blurch, I agree with Holfraz. Heavy calisthenics is the way to go. I have tested this carolie burner against another one and they come in darn close to each other, so I think it's fairly reliable.

I have been working out with Insanity for 3 weeks now and I have already lost 15lbs. It is a great workout plan, I starting having my 16 yr old daughter doing it with me. She is a high school athlete and this workout kicks her butt! Makes me feel good when at times she at 16 has to stop for a resg and me at 33 will be still going strong. That is my motivation Wink

Okay, for this week I will aim for 1200 and see how I do with that for a little while...after I get comfortable with that I will slowly increase from there to do reverse dieting. Thank you for your help.

Yes, that is true, but for some interesting reading, google "Why the scales lie" and learn the myths and truths about what the scale is really telling you.
