Insanity Day 1- Fit Test

I’M GOING TO LOVE THESE WORKOUTS!!! I’M SO EXCITED!!! There will be no boredom or getting used to these. At some point I will probably want to quit or die or throw up but hey that is a sign of a great workout right!!?!?!  Ha!

Sitting down at the computer I realize its 7:15am and I’ve just finished my first real workout in months. My little Shiloh is 2 months old and since she has been born the only real exercise I have done is walking…pushing a triple jogger up hills…but walking nonetheless.

My husband set up the garage as our Insanity room so I could pull out the car and do workouts in the mornings before the kids wake up . He threw a couple old mats on the floor to absorb the shock from all the jumping we will be doing. About 5 minutes into the fit test I was grateful for those mats!!!

If the fit test was a real test I would have received a big fat F. I would honestly be proud if I did half of what those people did. Yes, this would have been the first 50 would have enjoyed.

So here are my results:

  1. Switch Kicks- 65
  2. Power Jacks- 25
  3. Power Knees- 56
  4. Power Jumps- 8
  5. Globe Jumps- 5
  6. Push-up Jacks- 8
  7. Low Plank Oblique- 20

There is a certain anticipation to see what these numbers will look like in two weeks. I’m hoping my desire to improve my numbers sustains me through the tougher days!!

Wahoo!! Thank you Lord that my kids are still sleeping!!  To my Bible I go!!!

  1. Joe,Thanks for the comment, and tnhkas for the complement there have been some difficult parts of the workout, but I’m determined to get through this all the way. I have never FINISHED a workout like this. I have done parts of the p90x and chalean extreme, but never finished them. So to answer your questions about P90X it is hard for me to know first hand, but I can tell you P90X is more of a muscle building program. It uses weights and pull up bars and will get you ripped. Insanity on the other hand is a very cardio heavy workout. Your lungs and heart are going to get in better shape, plus I think you may lose weight quicker with Insanity. I think that the perfect combination is use Insanity first to get your lungs and body into amazing shape and drop some weight, then follow the insanity workout up with the P90X. This will then either grow or tone (depending on the size of weights you use) your muscles and get you a screamin good body. (This is my plan ) ( oh and I’m going to blog about the P90X just like I did for Insanity So stay tuned for that.)I’ll write about the nutrition plan in an upcoming blog.
