Asylum - Day 2

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Strength (50 minutes) - Today's workout incorporated either hand weights or a resistance band for most of the workout. I used 5 pound weights, but next time I'll use something a bit heavier. I was told to use something light, but I think I went too light. Oh well, at least I didn't hurt myself! I love that this workout is strength training and not cardio. Lots of push ups and ab stuff along with the weights. I'm enjoying the difference from Insanity, so 2 thumbs up for this routine! The 50 minutes went by really fast too. I was surprised!

Asylum - Day 1

Monday, October 08, 2012

Speed & Agility (45 minutes) - First day of Asylum - YAY!! It was just what I was hoping for - something new and different from Insanity and something that challenges me. The workout has lots of jump roping, plank walking, and burpees. I need to become better coordinated, that's for sure. The ladder is fun to use, but I swear my feet were moving on their own rather than going into the squares where I was mentally telling them to go. My heart rate was higher than it's been in a while. I guess I was getting too complacent with Insanity. It's nice to change it up. Anyway, we'll see how it goes, but so far, it's fun - kinda like recess for adults!

    Wow! Great job getting through Insanity and going right into another high intensity workout. I have only done a few sessions of Insanity- you make me want to buy the program and go through it. Glad Asylum is fun for you! It makes working out so much easier to accomplish when it is fun and new.

    Good luck with Asylum. I look forward to reading your blogs about it. I am interested in what the program is like. It is one thing to see it on television or read about it online and another thing to hear about it from someone that is actually doing it.

Insanity: The Asylum Vol. 1 - Fit Test (before start of program)

Saturday, October 06, 2012

Athletic Performance Assessment - 9 exercises that will be tested today, Day 15, and Day 30 (the last day of the program). Today was my introduction to Asylum. All of the exercises were either somewhat different or completely different from the ones in Insanity - which is a good thing. I like that there are variations (or new moves) so that I'm not doing the same thing again. The warmup was relatively short this time. I do like the addition of the jump rope to get the heart going. All in all, so far I like the moves. I guess I'll see on Monday when I start the program how much I not only enjoy the program, but how well the program will change my body.

After the Fit Test, I did Core Cardio and Balance as a quick cardio workout. Usually this is very easy and doesn't get my heart rate up that high. Today, though, after the Fit Test, I did a lot more sweating and panting. I hope this is a sign of good things to come!!

Insanity - Day 63 - THE END

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Ha, ha! I can't believe I forgot on the final day of Insanity that i didn't blog. Ha, ha! Anyway, it's done. Yay!! My Fit Test went super. I did better than I could have ever imagined when I began this four months ago. I don't think I even knew if I would last when I started the first time. It was really hard for me. This second time around the program was so much easier - mentally. Because I improved my fitness level, I was able to work harder the second time, so I wouldn't say the workouts were easier. They could actually get harder...

Now I'm onto Asylum. Unfortunately, my DVD's won't arrive until the weekend, so now I plan on starting Monday. It worked out, though, because I am having a really tough week at work with a deadline set for Friday (for the first phase). I haven't even really been online in a couple of days. I'm just doing the Recovery Week's workout this week while I anticipate Monday.

Thank you all for supporting me in this Insanity journey. I couldn't have done it without you - and I'm not just saying that. It's a fact. THANKS!!!

Way to go on completing your 2nd Round of Insanity! Good luck with the Asylum when you receive it. I just had a similar situation at work - we had a huge conference last week. It threw off my schedule so much, that I had to take a week off from Insanity. Good luck with everything!

Insanity - Day 62

Saturday, September 29, 2012

Max Cardio Conditioning & Abs - Ahh!! Last day of the regular workouts!! Only the Fit Test tomorrow and I'm DONE!!!! Although not officially over yet, it looks like Insanity has done nothing but good things to my body. I've lost weight, gained muscle mass, and am just able to move better. I'm so happy I chose to go through this program twice in a row. Now for the Fit Test... Will I improve from the very first test I took? Absolutely! There is no way I couldn't have improved. The question is how much. Well, tune in tomorrow for the answer!!!!!
