The perfect solution for your active drinking lifestyle.
Fact: You can spend the rest of your life at the Advanced level and you will still probably be the fittest person you know.
Insane Exercise assumes that you are either a competitive athlete or you are capable of working out at the same intensity and frequency as elite athletes. Insane Exercise has the power to remake your body. It will dramatically increase both your strength and cardio capacity. It will decrease your body fat. You will be eating more calories than you thought possible while still losing weight. Insane Exercise will make you capable of athletic feats you would not have thought possible. If you dare to try it, it will produce results. The gains, however, will not come easily.
Competing in athletics at the pro or amateur level is not the only reason to embrace Insane Exercise. People chase this level of fitness for a variety of reasons. We know people who simply like how this level of fitness makes them feel. We know others who workout this hard because they like the way it makes them look. We admit that they do look fabulous. Especially when they are flashing washboard abs in a bar under the pastel light of neon beer signs or doing push-ups in a parking lot to settle some ridiculous argument about proper form. We have even met actors, actresses and models that use periods of Insane Exercise in order to lean down and tone up for shoots. We have used it ourselves to prepare for road races and Crossfit events.
Before we delve into the details of Insane Exercise, we need to first dispel a popular myth. We have all been fed a fairytale that athletes who train at the Insane level are teetotalers. We have been led to believe that these athletes match their brutal exercise regimens to an equally regimented diet. That they bring the same discipline to the table/restaurant/bar that they do to the gym. You might think that they approach food as nutrition and balance their protein, carbohydrates and fats to whatever mystical ratio is the current fad for Chinese gymnasts. They eschew all unnecessary calories, especially those from alcohol.
In most cases, this is utterly untrue.
There are, most certainly, athletes who adhere to highly restrictive diets. We have actually met a few of them, although they are few and far between. The bulk of our experience is very much to the contrary. We have met a surprisingly large number of professional athletes—and people who workout as hard as professional athletes—who live according to tenets of Drink Your Carbs. They may not call it Drink Your Carbs. At times it may not even look like Drink Your Carbs. They do, however, follow the basic model of cutting calories from their diets into order to make room for alcohol. They work out crazy hard. Eat crazy lean. And they drink, often as hard as they exercise.
