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.
