"The INSANITY® workout might just be the hardest fitness program ever put on DVD. Your personal trainer Shaun T will push you past your limits with 10 INSANITY workout discs packed with plyometric drills on top of nonstop intervals of strength, power, resistance, and ab and core training moves. No equipment or weights needed. Just the will to get the hardest body you’ve ever had."
Today was Day 1 of Insanity.
I have to admit I struggled at the thought of it when I woke up at 5.30am this morning knowing that I would need to be out of bed in 1 hours time in order to get going - it was hard!
But 6.30am I was up and dressed and by 7am I was ready to press play to Day 1 of Insanity - The Fit Test!
Let me tell you this 'Fit test' is more like a full workout and will need some real motivation and determination to complete, it would be much easier to give up after the 3rd move than to keep going knowing it's only going to get harder, but Shaun T is a fabulous motivator and is brilliant at making you want to get up off the floor and keep going.
It begins with a gentle warm up and stretch (well gentle by Shaun T's standards anyway) and finishes with a cool down and stretch.
The 'Fit test' itself comprises of 8 moves and the idea is that you have 30 seconds per move (one move at a time) to do as many as you can and you then record your result, you then get a short break while Shaun T shows you the next move and it all starts again.
Initially there are no good or bad results because you are only competing against yourself - the idea is that over the 60 days of the workout you will take the fit test every 2 weeks and the aim is to prove your own personal result.
So my results for 11/03/2013 (I decided not to compare against my previous round of Insanity last year - too depressing I imagine)
1) Switch kicks = 62.
2) Power jacks = 29.
3) Power knees = 70.
4) Power jumps = 14.
5) Globe jumps = 5.
6) Suicide jumps = 11.
7) Push up jacks = 12.
8) Low plank obliques - 30.
Tomorrow - Day2 - 'Plyometric Cardio Circuit - Ouch!
