Insanity Max 30 Breakdown

What makes INSANITY MAX 30 unique?

Insanity Max 30 is a workout and nutrition program that runs for 60 days.  It was designed to help you get the lean, shredded abs, amazing glutes and crazy lean arms you have been striving for in just 30 minutes per day during that 60 day period to the craziest 30 minutes of your day—and the best results of your life!

Every day is a brand-new challenge in INSANITY MAX:30. With killer cardio, challenging Tabata-style strength workouts, plus 150 new moves designed to push you to your limit, Shaun pushes you to MAX OUT.

It’s not about making it through all 30 minutes. It’s about challenging yourself more each day to get the results you’ve always wanted in 60 days.

And even though INSANITY MAX:30 is a challenging program, there is a modification for every move—whatever your fitness level—you CAN MAX OUT and still get MAX results!

Why is INSANITY MAX 30 effective?

The goal is to work as hard as you can for as long as you can until you MAX OUT—the point when you just can’t do anymore or you begin to lose form. Each workout pushes you to beat

your last MAX OUT time to keep you accountable. Go one minute longer and you’ll get remarkably stronger—every single day. That’s how you lose more weight and get an INSANE body fast.

Workout Breakdown

Cardio Challenge

This is a 30 minute workout consisting of the hardest cardio sequences you have ever tried. It is quite a welcome to your journey with Insanity Max: 30 since it is the first workout you will complete with the series.

Tabata Power

The Tabata workout will definitely leave your muscles begging for a break! This will be the beginning of your strength training using the Tabata-style discipline of fitness. That means you will be doing power moves in increments of 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off.

Sweat Intervals

This is an intense cardio workout that will have you screaming, sweating and torching calories for the duration of the 30 minutes.

Tabata Strength

In this workout, Shaun T takes it up a notch with a NO REST, Tabata-style strength workout. And that means it will be a full 30 minutes with no 10 or 20 second rest that is typical of Tabata style workouts. The moves will follow the discipline but the recovery will not.

Friday Fight

This workout is considered round one for the first portion of Insanity Max 30. It is a battle between your body and your mind as you fight to make the time in this workout. And remember, even seasoned Olympic athletes could not complete the entire 30 minute workout by maxing out so do not get discouraged if you cannot either. It will be a process and a level that you will build up to.

This workout has been officially deemed the new “hardest workout ever.” Every single move in the Friday Fight is a minute long. It is sure to be a challenge between your body and your mind.

MAX OUT Cardio

This is sure to be the craziest cardio workout you have ever tried. The first power move in it alone will have you screaming!!


The intervals are longer in this 45 seconds on, 15 seconds off. Tabata-style plyometric madness.


The more minutes you make it through in this workout, the more you will sweat and the more calories you will burn. This is another plyometrics cardio full body workout!

MAX OUT Strength

This is a strength workout that will have you using your own body weight for resistance. Your arms, shoulders, chest, and core will be toast after this mostly upper-body-focused workout is complete. The workout is also a Tabata style routine featuring 45 seconds on, 15 seconds off.
