Day 16: Fit Test Part 2
Yesterday Allie and I had our second fit test. Here are our numbers and some new pictures.
2 weeks in and as you can see we have both made huge improvements. This isn't necessarily the best thing though and the reason for that is form... FORM! I know that I am no where near as fit or strong as the people in the videos. When my numbers are crushing theirs, I think it's time to reevaluate my approach to those exercises.
Today, for the first time ever, I watched certain sections of the videos to see the proper form without trying to do the exercises. Then I went through the exercises I thought I need work on and did them slowly until I was doing them right. I expect to see the numbers in the switch kicks, power knees, low plank obliques and squat jacks go down quite a bit next test.
Another note on form... If you have week ankles or knees DO NOT do the insanity work out until you feel comfortable that you are preforming ALL of the jumping exercises correctly. I don't want anyone to get hurt.
