Insanity: Month 2, Day 2- Max Interval Plyo
Okay, so last night I was awake several times wondering how I was going to make it through Max Interval Plyo. My usual method is to push really hard one day and do less intensity the next and so on, with Insanity that is NOT possible! I was already sore in the middle of the night because of yesterdays 85 minute workout and I wondered if my body would let me repeat the whole thing again today. Well, it did! Yippee!
The good news is that there is definitely room for improvement on this workout. I hate nailing a workout the first time through because it leaves nothing to be desired and the challenge of beating the darn thing is gone. I will definitely be able to improve on this one and I will have fun doing it. Yes, there are a lot of push ups and yes, it is tough but I know the results will be worth it.
This warm-up is a lot like that of Max Interval Circuit. Rounds 1 & 2 are 4 minutes a piece and Round 3 is a little over 2 minutes for a total of 10 minutes if you like to do math : )
Here is the warm-up broken down:
Straight Arm Jacks
Jump Rope S-S
High Knees- Arms Out
Hit the Floor
S-S Floor Hops
After round three you get a 30-second water break followed by a 4-1/2 minute stretch and another 30-second water break. The bad news, you have a 45-minute killer workout in front of you. The good news, you're going to look great in 4 more weeks!
Okay, so is it just me or does the words insane and insanity come up a lot when talking to people about this workout? I laugh because I am constantly saying that. Talk about marketing genius!!
The full workout breakdown is coming your way on Friday so stay tuned!!
