Insanity Month 2, Day 1- Fit Test & Max Interval Circuit
Today was a big day on my Insanity journey, 85 minutes of Insanity. Do I feel insane yet? Uh, yeah!
I took the Fit Test, ate some breakfast then completed Max Interval Circuit. My Fit Test was a mixed bag, while I improved on most of the moves, I stayed the same on one and I did less reps on one of the moves. Overall I was happy because the improvements I made were improvements I didn't think were possible.
Here are the results:
Switch Kicks 1: 63/ 126 2: 64/ 128 3: 64/ 128
Power Jacks 1: 50 2: 56 3: 64
Power Knees 1: 86 2: 94 3: 96
Power Jumps 1: 50 2: 50 3: 56
Globe Jumps 1: 11 2: 11 3: 12 (Yea!!)
Suicide Jumps 1: 19 2: 21 3: 22
Push-Up Jacks 1: 24 2: 27 3: 32
Low Plank Oblique 1: 35/70 2: 52/ 104 3: 47/99 (Bummer!)
Oh, Max Interval Circuit! This is the longest workout of the Insanity program. This workout runs 60 minutes and it is a sweaty, tough 60 minutes! I enjoyed the workout as long as I ignored how much time I had left ;D
I will break this month's workouts down the same way I broke down Month 1. I will start by breaking down the warm-up of Max Interval Circuit. There are three repeating rounds in the warm-up. The first and second round run 4 minutes long while the third and final round is a little over 2 minutes. By the third time through I was glad that Shaun T. shortened up the time!
Here are the exercises in the warm-up:
Arms Up Jacks
S Jump Rope
High Knees- Arms Out
Hit the Floor
S Floor Hops
After the third round you get a 30 second water break followed by a 5 minute stretch. The official body of the workout starts when the clock hits 44:00. To be honest, I was already tired by the time the body of the workout started. I think it was the 25-minute Fit Test I had already completed. By Round two of the main workout I hit my second wind and powered through. Tomorrow is Max Interval Plyo which is a bit shorter at 47-minutes in length. I am glad the rotation followed up this doozy of a workout with a nice "short" one! I'll let you know how it turns out.
As always, I would love to hear how you are doing with the program. Also, if you have any questions about the program or other fitness programs just e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you tomorrow,
