Insanity: Day 5- Pure Cardio
Pure Cardio is right! This workout is 38 minutes of straight cardio with no water breaks after the 9-minute warm-up and 6-minute stretch. The non-stop cardio portion runs 16 minutes long and it will keep your lungs pumping. Here are the drills, each 1-minute in length:
Wide Football Sprints
Hooks and High Jump Rope
Level 2 Drills
Mountain Climbers (standing)
You get a 1-minute water break at the end of the drills and then a nice 5-minute cool down. I'm trying not to picture Month 2 at this point because I feel my 1st month is in serious need of improvement. My brother actually called me yesterday and said there was no way I did that many reps on my Fit Test, but I did! Maybe I'm not doing as bad as I thought ; )
Tomorrow is a repeat of Plyometric Cardio Circuit so I won't bore you with another review of it. I can't wait to see the progress I have made. The one major thing I notice just within 5 days of doing Insanity is that my core is getting tight, fast! That is a major trouble zone for me so I'm stoked!
Another little side note, I did the first workout with music and have done every one since withOUT! I prefer no music mostly because it helps me concentrate so much more. Try it, see what you think!
