Giving Insanity a Go

So you remember how much I wanted to try out Insanity, right? Well, guess what! A friend of mine is letting me borrow their collection! Yahoo!!

I did the fit test, which was definitely a challenge, but I was mostly able to keep up with the athletes on the screen.

And yes, I do have an excel spreadsheet to track my progress. :p I’m a dork like that.

This morning I tested out the Plyometric Cardio Circuit.

I’m not exactly sure why the girl is kicking in that picture. The workout does none of that.

I have to say it was a good sweaty workout. My heart was pumping, and the plank/pushup section rocked my world. I have majorly shrimpy arms…

What I didn’t like was the huge stretching break right after the warm-up. What the heck, dude? I get my heart rate up, just to have it drop back down before the actual workout even starts? Lame.

There is definite room for improvement on my part, which I really like to see. Most DVD workouts tend to leave me feeling like I didn’t quite work hard enough.

Also, do not do this workout in the early morning if you live in an old creaky building with floors that squeak. You will wake the neighbors.

Oops. 😦 No elephants here. Just me trying to do high knees.

She was really nice though. I apologized and moved myself to the back bedroom which has slightly less room, but more stable (less loud) flooring. It’s also not right above where someone sleeps.
