(in)sanity is a full time job.



Hey insanity punx...just checking in....I worked through the program a second time, and since then I've been doing my best to stay in the MAX month of workouts. It took long enough to get comfortable with these workouts, and I don't want to get to the point where I dread them all over again. The routine of max month is almost more comforting in a weird way than month one, I like having core cardio and balance as a regular part of my weekly schedule. I have been way more lenient with myself about skipping workout days tho...the past couple of weeks I've probably worked out and average of 5 days a week instead of 6. Spring is almost here for real, and I am expecting (or hoping at least) that life gets more fun and i'll have more reasons to escape my tiny sweaty room. But I'm also looking forward to swimming and running being a part of summer life. Last summer I would jog occasionally, and I'm curious to see how it feels going on those runs now that I know that my cardio is so much improved from months of insanity.

There have been a few other philly punks who have jumped on board insanity, I don't know if they are checking this blog or want to post about their workouts, but it is nice that more punks are into getting fit.

Here are the results from my last couple of fit tests. I am really pleased with my results. especially my power jumps, which I have finally been able to get into doing 30-35 for my initial push before I need to recover for a sec. I have actually taken a tiny break and not worked out the past couple of days and then did a fit test today, I was relieved that none of my results dropped, they either held steady or increased a little bit....

switch kicks: 135/135
power jacks 51/55
power knees 90/102
power jumps 60/62
globe jumps 10/11
suicide jumps 21/21
push up jacks 36/41
low plank obliques 71/75
