I started INSANITY today!
The first day on the INSANITY program is a fit test with 8 different exercise that you complete for 1 minute each counting the number of reps you can do. This is a benchmark, as you continue on the program you repeat the fit test so you can see how you improve, basically because the number of reps you can do as you get in better shape should increase each time.
I was excited to start, I think I didn’t sleep well because of it. I got up early, geared up (including my new New Balance Cross-Training shoes) and popped in the DVD.
I look like a muppet, but I made a little video before starting (the volume is low so you may need to turn yours up).
It wasn’t easy. At all. But I dug deep! I pushed myself and was sweating and drank 24 oz of water during the 24 minute test.
I am looking forward to tomorrow. The program is designed to have you working out 6 days a week and appears to be extremely varied.
I might already have a crush on Shaun T.
Note: I was sent the INSANITY workout program to try and share my feedback on my blog. The sweat, and opinions produced during my use of the program are my own.
