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
