Yeah, I don't like their nutrition plans. It uses things that I would not usually have around.

I recently started adding Insanity (the "max" workouts) into one of my daily exercise slots...it's a lot of fun! I'm not expecting to see any real results, but I definitely recommend it to anyone looking to shake things up or starting a new program.

my exercise of the day? Heck the week, is watching my 2 year old niece.

Yup. Picking her up, putting her down, playing monster chase.. .. trying to keep her from liberating herself from the foul constrains of her clothing... and chasing her down when she does...

...I'm sure I burned at least a couple calories.

Suiseiseki0284 - LOL. She's at that age, eh? Yeah, it does take a lot of effort to watch a kid that just runs around and tries to undress themselves.

Drazhar - Are the workouts getting any easier? I mean, can you go a little farther now than last month?

chupachan - I'm sure you'll at least gain some endurance. Insanity is crazy hard.

Insanity is totally crazy hard. I can say with absolute certainty that I could do more by even week two than I could in the first week.

FOUR WEEK RESULTS



I'll outline my first two fit test results (as I haven't done it yet today)

There are eight exercises, you have one minute to do as many as you can! You get a break in between

Exercise 1: Switch Kicks - You raise your arms and bend at the elbows, elbows point down and hands up, hold them and your core tight. I treat two kicks as one, they don't.
Test 1 - 25
Test 2 - 31
Exercise 2: Power Jacks, it's like a jumping jack into a squat. You start straight and jack outwards while going into a squad
Test 1 - 24
Test 2 - 44
Exercise 3: Power Knees - Stand with your right leg bent, hands like a diamond diagonally above your head, you bring up the left knee and down your hands to meet at the belly button. REALLY works the core
Test 1 - 45
Test 2 - SEVENTY EIGHT
Exercise 4: Power Jumps - Start kind of like in a squat position, you jump up with your hands outward and bring your knees and hands together in the air, hard to explain without showing
Test 1 - 25
Test 2 - 30
Exercise 5: Globe Jumps - The bane of my existence! Start in a squat with your hands on the ground, you jump to the right and raise your hands way up, landing back into the squat and touch the ground with your hands, you jump back and raise your hands again, the you jump left, back to the front! Four jumps = 1
Test 1: 6
Test 2: 7
Exercise 6: Suicide Jumps: Start standing straight, hands up in the air. Hop down, go into the plank position, then bring your legs between your arms, jump up and reach up, then repeat.
Test 1: 8
Test 2: 12
Exercise 7: Push up Jacks (Hate these too because my arms and pecs are weak) Just like a push up, except as you go down, your legs go out like a jumping jack.
Test 1: 22
Test 2: 20 (form improved but reps were down)
Exercise 8: Low Plank Oblique. You go into low plank, you can choose if your hands are together or apart, but you're resting on your forearms, keep your core tight. You bring one knee up as far as you can, and then alternate
Test 1: 40
Test 2: 50


Long post I know, but if anyone has any questions about Insanity, feel free to ask. I'm getting ready for Month 2 and I'm pretty sure I can take it.
Recovery week was fun by the way.

That's become by routine for the past 4 days =)

Gave blood Tuesday so I delayed starting month 2 until yesterday... still at it really, but it counts...

Month 2 is FREAKING INSANE

Insanity just kicked it up five notches on me and I'm not sure how well I'll hold out!

Exercises Today:
- Spent almost 30 mins on the treadmill today, varying between walking and running (~3.0-5.6 mph)
- Did three different types of arm resistance training/weights, 10-15 reps each (I skipped out on the leg weights because my thighs are sore from exercising yesterday >_<)
- Did some skip rope for a few minutes (didn't time myself)
Total time: about 1 hour

Food (so far) :
Breakfast/Lunch (I woke up late, lol) : Cereal (the sugary kind, derp) with 1% milk; coffee with a tsp of white sugar and some 1% milk
Snack: A bottle of water at the gym; some leftover popcorn after the gym (derp)
By the time I got back from the gym, it was already about 2:30pm, so it feels a little late to eat an actual lunch. I'll just have an early dinner, I think, and a couple hours before I go to bed, I'll have a small snack, like an apple or something.

- I walked a mile today (Severe weather outbreak prevented more outdoor exercise)
- Spent 15 minutes on Exercise Bike
- 5 minutes lifting 10lb training weight

I just re-started my exercise plan, so I'm taking it easy to begin with so I don't push myself too much right now. I really shouldn't have stopped, even though I didn't do to much today I feel like I've been hit by a train now.

Food (Cookies are my major weakness lol..)

- Salad with low fat dressing
- Low Fat Quaker Oat Bars
- Diet Pepsi/Water

Walked around Otakon all day. The only time I even spent money is when I bought a print for my friend that is at the con as well.
