Asylum - Day 8
Monday, October 15, 2012      2 comments

Back to Core. 12 min. cardio - 36 min. strength training First of all, let me say that my body is not sore from the strength training yesterday. I was worried since I increased my hand weights a bit that I would be sore, but I'm not. Yay... Read more

Strength - I do love this workout. It involves a bit of circuit training so there is some cardio work, but mainly this 50-minute workout hits all major muscle groups for a full-on strength training workout. I increased from the 5-pound to 8-po... Read more
Asylum - Days 5 & 6

Day 5 - Rest Day. Day 6 - Speed and Agility. First, I was surprised that we already had a rest day, but since this is one of only two rest days for the 30 days, I'm happy it came when it did. The rest was welcome with everything that has ... Read more

Vertical Plyo. 40+ minutes of pure adrenalin-pumping cardio. Using the ladder mainly, but also the jump rope, you get a really great workout. This is different from Insanity, so my heart rate was back up again. Yay!! I'm glad each of these ... Read more

Back to Core - A combo workout. The first 12 minutes are all sorts of different jumping jacks and other cardio moves. The rest of the workout, about 36 minutes, is strength training using power bands and your own body. Again, this is a nice c... Read more

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 wen... Read more

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... Read more

Core Cardio & Balance - Recovery Day - So I'm nearing the end of Insanity, Rounds Two. This workout, again, was very easy to do. It's funny how the first time I did this one, it was during the first recovery week. My arms burned at the end an... Read more

Max Interval Circuit. OK, I know what I said yesterday. This workout I do not have memorized. I do know how it's broken up (warm-up, three sets of exercises repeated three times each plus some extras thrown in), but I never remember what exer... Read more

Max Cardio Conditioning & Cardio Abs - OK, definitely need to change it up a bit. I think I have this whole DVD memorized too. And since it's the shortest of the Max workouts, it makes it even shorter (if you can understand how that could be p... Read more

Yesterday was my last Rest Day and today was Max Interval Plyo. I felt my pushups to be a bit stronger today. Glad it was a rest day yesterday. I think I needed to rest my body a bit. I was also able to continue through the workout no proble... Read more
