Let the Insanity Begin!

Well, I finally did it! I started Insanity. I started today by completing the Fit Test. This test is taken every two weeks in order to gauge your improvement throughout the Insanity program. You count how many reps you can do of each move and write it down so you can see in black and white if your getting any stronger. Here's how it went:

Switch Kicks-  125
Power Jacks-     50
Power Knees-    86
Power Jumps-   50
Globe Jumps-   11
Suicide Jumps- 19
Push-Up Jacks- 24
Low Plank Oblique-  70

I felt a bit lax on the last two moves so I'm anxious to see the improvements over the next 60 days. I also took my measurements and I'll keep you updated on those. I was going to do an Insanity/ P90X rotation but I want to do Insanity on it's own first just to see what a high level of cardio does for me. I have been lifting weights for so long it will be very strange to not lift anything more than my own body weight for the next 60 days. I can't wait to see how the program works! Stay tuned!!

Good luck! I'm an X grad (several times over actually) and finished a round of Insanity in April. I think you'll be surprised at the program and how it exposes weaknesses you didn't know/think you had. Best advice I can give is to really watch your form in phase 2 because it is really easy to compensate with other muscles and get injured!

I'll be interested to see how it goes. I have Insanity but have yet to do the rotation as prescribed. Good Luck!!

I completed Insanity and then moved on to a P90X/Insanity hybrid. I loved the hybrid, because I missed the strenth training. I love cardio, have found the best results mixing it with weights. Keep up the great work!
