Month 2 Day 1 – Insanity tried to kill me!!
Last night was CRAZY!!! Honestly, what the heck was that??? When people say it’s like starting from scratch they’re not kidding. The workout was only 20 minutes longer, but the moves were much more intense due to a lot of hard combinations, for example – in one section Shaun T has you do 4 plank ski jumps, 4 jack push-ups, 4 in-and-outs, ending with 4 oblique push-ups – yep totally INSANE!
I was drowning in a pool of sweat by the end of it. In fact, I think I may have overheated last night – I was burning up until the last 10 minutes then within a split second my body started to freeze. For the first time it felt like I had to put clothes ON to complete the workout. Overall though, I managed to burn 943 calories in 59 minutes with a peak heart rate of 178.
Another aspect I loved about the Max Interval Circuit routine was watching the people in the video. These are people who are fitness instructors and athletes who have completed at least one round of Insanity and yet they were still struggling. Some looked like they wanted to die while others kept taking unscheduled breaks every 5 minutes. It was also very amusing to see people go all out when Shaun T was standing beside them, but as soon as he left you saw them hurl over from exhaustion...lol
After Insanity I decided to go for an hour long doggie walk, which felt great. It helped stretch out my muscles and kept me from getting stiff. Although I had enough energy to do Brazil Butt Lift after dinner I decided not to. I’m going to monitor my body and energy level this week then decide if I am going to add BBL back into the mix for next Monday.
Tonight on the schedule is Max Interval Plyo – I hear this one is the one to watch out for. I know Plyo was the hardest workout for me in month one, so this is definitely going to be a struggle tonight, but I am SO looking forward to it :0)Here’s to pressing play and pushing hard – WOOT WOOT!!!
