Insanity: Month 2, Day 7- Max Cardio Conditioning

Today I did Max Cardio Conditioning. I was so happy this was my workout today because it's my favorite workout and it flies by. I was a little under the weather today and was very glad it wasn't the plyo workout. I had to modify a few of the exercises but I was able to make it to the end. I know the next time through this will be much better!

Each exercise in this workout is 1-minute long. I love it because after the 1-minute you will never have to see that move again during the workout. Variety is the spice of life, right?

Here are the moves:

High/ Low Jab w/ Squat
Football Runs w/ Low Plank
Basketball Shots w/ Hop Squats
Right & Left Kicks
Diamond Jumps (A move that needs massive improvement for me)
In & Out Abs w/ Push Up Jacks
Suicide Jumps
High Knees/ Low Sprint/ Plank Runs
Ski Abs
~The following 3 moves are a recovery of sorts~
Kick Step Back ~
Squat w/ Twist~
Over the River Hops~
Attack w/ Jumping Squats
Power Knees
Ski Down w/ Hooks
Belt Kicks
Forward & Back Suicides
Push Up Abs
Plank Punches
8 Jump Ropes/ 8 Hop Squats
Squat w/ Speed Bag

Stretch 4:00

The bonus to this being an endurance workout versus the kick your butt and give you 30-seconds workouts, is that you seem to be not as out of breath. It's really good to mix things up and that's what this workout does. The extra bonus is that it's only 47 minutes long, yeah!!!

I haven't mentioned it in a while but I do ALL of the workouts without the music on. It is so much better! I only used the music on the first workout so I know the difference was enough to never listen to it again. It's better because I can go at my own pace instead of trying to get a beat from the music. Try it for yourself and see what you think.

Thanks for reading! I always love to hear from all of you!!

Those diamond jumps are killer. In the last week of the program and I still hate them. Power jumps too. I don't care how many times I do them, they always suck.

Great job on the improvements of the last week, by the way!

All this insanity makes me want to participate, too. It sounds like fun, although I need the music. Sometimes we just blast some tunes around here and do our own thing. The kids love it!
