exercise variation is essential for any long-term success, and i don't think much strength is gained doing bodyweight workouts. Would never use this for any athlete.

For sports performance they're terrible. I know of a DI mens gymnastics team that does Insanity 3x a week, and the team is riddled with shoulder injuries, go figure. But the head coach doesnt know any better and would only let the former GA see them 1x a week.

For the general population I think its great. If its getting people off their butts and moving, especially with the obesity epidemic, then I would encourage people to do it. As long as they can do movements properly and arent hurting themselves then I view it as a good thing. For those who want to be strong and really be fit, it could go either way depending on how motivated and intelligent the person is. In the end, as long as its getting people to do something and not just collect dust or cause injury, Im all for it.
