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.
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.
