Beth and I after 8 months into our new fitness lifestyle have decided to tackle the INSANITY Workout!! We both started with 10 Minute Trainer because of our busy high school marching band schedule. Both of us had great results with before the INSANITY Workout on 10 Minute Trainer, her losing 60lbs and me losing 40lbs. After a couple weeks of Turbo Jam for her and Power 90 for me she wanted to do the INSANITY Workout. With both of us being former U.S. Marines we were both looking forward to the challenge.

Week 1 INSANITY Workout

The INSANITY Workout starts out with a Fit Test. This 30 minute video takes you through 8 exercises to establish a starting fitness level. Thus giving you a base to improve from. You will eventually do this Fit Test every two weeks.

It kicked our butt!!!
I wanted to take a break during the Fit Test but Beth said “that would not be a good measurement if I rested” so I kept going.

Pace yourself when starting the INSANITY Workout

After the Fit Test we started our first video Plyometric Cardio Circuit, 42 minutes of insane cardio movements. All of the movements are very doable but it was just hard to keep up. The warm up was a beast in itself. But I had to remind myself that the people on the DVD have done this a couple times and this was my first time. So I chilled out and paced myself.

The next day was Cardio Power & Resistance, 40 minutes. Again we had to pace ourselves to keep up. The sweat was pouring. I think I have ever sweated that much before.

Day 3 – Cardio Recovery was next lasting 33 minutes. Lots of stretching and very slow movements. The sweat still flowed.

Now it was time for Pure Cardio, 55 minutes or nonstop movement on day 4. And Day 5 was a repeat of Day 1 – Plyometric Cardio Circuit. And Day 6 was a repeat of Day 2 – Cardio Power & Resistance.

Day 7 was a rest day that we really looked forward to.

All in all The first week of the INSANITY Workout was fun, exhausting and anticipated. We can’t wait for week 2 of the INSANITY Workout!!
