Yesterday was the doozy workout – fit test + max circuit intervals. 1.5 hours of crazy insane fun with Shaun T and the crew. I both loathe and love this workout. Loathe it because it’s a long day and I have to get up really early. Love it because I feel like a super woman after working out and actually making it through the workout without crying.
So the fit test results are (drumroll!!!)
- Switch kicks – 108 (+3)
- Power jacks – 54 (+8)
- Power knee – 109 (+2)
- Power jumps – 35 (+3)
- Globe jumps – 10 (no change)
- Suicide jumps – 16 (+1)
- Pushup jacks – 34 (+4)
- Low plank oblique – 53 (-6)
Overall not a bad fit test. I went down only on one thing from the fit test #2 and it was the last exercise so I’m wondering if i was burned out by then. Who knows…but I’m really happy with how much I’m improving every fit test and how much stronger I am getting.
So now – I’m 2 workouts into month 2. Month 2 is where the change happens IMO. The workouts start to really push your endurance and strength more here. I can tell I’m in much better shape than my last round of INSANITY because I’m jumping more during my workouts and burning more calories at a lower weight because of that. I just bought some inserts for my shoes to help my poor little flat feet out and they made a world of difference already. I also bought new shoes since the inserts were kind of big and didn’t fit well in my old shoes. Sucks since I just bought those a month ago…but necessary to protect my feet so I’m not complaining for real. I do NOT want to get hurt and be out of commission for weeks (months?) and I know that having flat feet means that I have to pay attention to what is going on with them and baby them now that I am doing more plyo during INSANITY.
