Insanity: Day 4- Cardio Recovery

Lucky me, today was Cardio Recovery. I had a friend on facebook warn me that it wasn't as easy at it seemed. There were a few parts where I definitely agreed with that! There was an intense squat and lunge section that really burned out my quads. I am a fan of strength work so I worked through it but I have a feeling I'll be feeling it tomorrow.

The workout is yoga based but it's a very athletic yoga. It runs about 32 minutes so it's a quick, to the point workout. Like I said, there is also an intense leg section with some oblique and shoulder work thrown in to boot. This will definitely be a fave of mine after all of the intense cardio. Don't get me wrong, I love cardio but it has been a long time since I have done this much.

Tomorrow I will review Pure Cardio, that is if I don't pass out while doing it! This looks to be the most intense cardio in this first month. I'll let you know!

Enjoy STS Maria! I really loved it but was curious to see what a cardio only program would do for me. My doctor said now that I'm in my mid-30's I need to do more cardio. It's kind of the opposite of my thought process so I guess we'll see if it pans out : )

Jennifer, I always workout in the mornings. Even if it's 5:00 I do it then. If I didn't it would never get done. Besides, it makes me feel so much better throughout the day : )

I like the break that Cardio Recovery provides. Once you get into month 2, Max Recovery is a leg killer!
