Get Hot and Fit: Beachbody’s Insanity

Posted Dec 20 2009 8:52am
How’s your weekend been, Hots and Fits?

Yesterday was a crazy day here! Despite the fact that I do not celebrate Christmas, I totally get sucked in the festives! I was at the mall for about 5 hours yesterday! Phew, so exhausting!

The snow situation is still the same here. As a matter of fact, its not getting any better, and neither are my nerves. I am trying to convince one of my home dwellers to help me stick the screws in my shoes but he says he has a feeling they will end up penetrating my foot and that’s a nasty picture. Heck yea, it is.

So, I told you before how I did two of the P90X workouts in the last couple of days, and while reading Katie’s blog, I noticed she was doing the Insanity workouts.

Never heard of them before, but I thought I would look into them and see whether I should give it a shot. Many of the DVDs had the word “cardio” written on them, and I am such a cardio whore, I had to give this a try.

It is supposed to be a 60-Day Total Body Conditioning Program which consists of 10 workouts.

Here is a list of the workouts included:

1. Dig Deeper & Fit Test
2. Plyometric Cardio Circuit
3. Cardio Power & Resistance
4. Cardio Recovery
5. Pure Cardio & Abs
6. Cardio Abs
7. Core Cardio & Balance
8. Max Interval Circuit
9. Max Interval Plyo
10. Max Cardio Conditioning & Abs

Basically, this is a 2-month program that is pretty hard core.

The thing that bums me is that I know I would not be able to stick to it for 2 whole months. I suppose I could overcome the bordem factor but the crucial factor is the fact that I want to run.

Shaun T, the instructor, is a really nice and very good looking in my opinion, I like him more than the Tony Horton from P90X.

I just did the Fit Test today, which is the first part of the program. I briefly skimmed through it last night, and it looked hard. However, doing it was insanely hard!

Here are my results (this is a 25 minute workouts including warm up, 1 minute for each drill, 1 minute resting between drills, and finally a cool down:

Again – this was hard. My HR sky-rocketed to about 196 BPM during some of these exercises. And I put myself in a high place whenever fitness endurance is considered (that’s actually a lie, I am not that tough…)

I am supposed to do this test again in two weeks. If I were to stick to the program, I should see some serious changes. Anyways, it does not look like the snow will melt in the next day or so, thus I shall probably do another one of these workouts tomorrow.

Peace out, I am off on a cleaning mission!
