Plyometric Cardio for me today (day 10), I was like a rag doll by the last set, I had to spend 5 minutes basically doing a duck-walk, while cleaningf gallions of sweat off the floor.
I had plyo as well today JLB3. I'm still in week 4, 3 days to go before recovery week. I must admit i thought today was going to be hard because i had a physically hard day at work but i suprised myself and made it to the last set of ski abs and squat thrusts before i started to collapse. What week are you in now JLB3?
Muffin29 what do you mean by app?
JLB3, you already answered my question because you put day 10. You will keep seeing improvements, stick at it mate.
Not going to lie, i found cardio recovery hard tonight as well. I still cant hold the squats or lunges after the mini ones, very frustrating/painful. Max training is close but at least i have the recovery week 1st. Remember if it was easy everyone would do it.Keep it up
Nightmare mate, rest it well before starting again. I apologise being a bit rude but on what exercise did you do it on. I would like to avoid injury at all costs, as all of us do!
Thanks for the info, hope it gets better soon!
Hope it gets bettersoon Mr.A. Had my day off today but did a 15 km run - legs are hurting now so not sure how I'm going to get up at 5am to do Pure cardio! I'm still really struggling with cardio power-can't even fully complete one set of the level 1 drills, ski abs and in out abs.
Sam, it's JLB3 who is injured. Stick at the cardio power it will come.
Sorry! JLB3-hope your back feels better!
Month 1 done! Recovery week starts tomorrow, i had to count yesterday as my rest day as i got called into work. I will comment tomorrow after i've done the session. I will also post any updates on my stats about half way through next week.
1st day of recovery week done. It wasn't too bad, the holds/pulsing at the end burnt a bit. Okay compared to a normal day
Just having a couple of days off because I'm running a half marathon tomorrow morning. Going to start recovery week from Sunday. Sorry to hear about your back JLB3.
Did the physio say how long before you can start again?
good luck tomorrow sam, month 2 is looming for me, i'm not looking forward to monday, fit test AND! max interval circuit
Could Insanity be used on top of a running program? Currently i am following a 15k running program and i do 3 bodyweights circuits per week. Just wondering if i got this program could i still do the 15k running program aswell and have Insanity on top? Cheers.
Matty, this is only my opinion but if you follow the insanity program giving 100% you will find the running difficult, certainly at the start your legs might be completely wasted after the workouts. I have stopped all my other exercise whilst i'm doing insanity. Sam Saliasi may be able to comment better because she is doing a modified insanity program so that she can keep her running program going. Hope this helps.
