Day 2

Note: I am doing the Insanity workout every day. I just might not get time to post about it for a day or two. But I WILL post about my workouts. So eventually y'all will get to see the whole picture. I'm excited y'all. Thanks for following me on this journey.

Today's workout was called Plyometric Cardio Circuit. Amazing! I'm feeling stronger today! I know I'm not literally stronger. I just was able to push myself harder. It felt great! I didn't feel defeated at all. I was confident that I could do the workout, and I did it. It's a great feeling to be working out to this crazy dvd. The instructor is a good motivator too. What I don't like is how much all this jiggly fat hurts when I'm hurling myself into the air, jumping and kicking and such. Looking forward to shedding this layer of fat.

Here's an example of what today's workout looked like.

You warm up with things like a jog, jumping jacks, the Heisman, 1-2-3 Heisman, butt kicks, high knees, mummy kicks, then you immediately repeat it all, only faster, then roll into the set a third time only as fast as you can.

Next is the stretch.

Then the circuits start. First one looks like this: suicide drills, power squats, mountain climbers, ski jumps. It's about 3 minutes straight, you take a 30 second break, and then you  do it again, only faster. Another break. And again, as fast as you. Then there is a recovery exercise of scissor runs. Then we did a mini set of football wide sprints twice. Another break. Second circuit: basketball drills, level 1 drills (go down into plank, jump your feet back, do 4 pushups, then from the same position do floor sprints, then stand up, go back down and repeat), ski abs, in-an-out abs. Take a break. Repeat circuit, only faster. Another break. Repeat again, as fast as you can. Then without a break you do another recovery exercise of jabs. Followed that up by doing cross jacks, uppercuts, and attack jabs. Then you get a break and stretch. AGH! It's craziness!

Stay tuned y'all. More good stuff to come.
