I ordered Insanity direct from Beachbody and didn't have any issues.
I've missed Monday's fit test and yesterday's Plyometric Cardio circuit. Although this is less to do with laziness and more to do with playing American Football with my mates on sunday which has resulted in it being very painful to move, let alone do Insanity. Seriously, it hurts just straightening my leg out. Still, pain or not, enough rest days, back into it today with Pure Cardio (and Cardio Abs). Full muscle failure may be just aroudn the corner
Hi guys hope your all still pushing play.
I've got 2 weeks to go till Insanity now. Fell race is tomorrow then finish T25 over the next 2 weeks, 1/2 marathon on the 24th then start on the monday morning.
Back on here again after several failed attempts to finish Insanity. I've been doing some T-25 which is good but don't feel the same effects as from Insanity. I've got a marathon to run in 10 weeks and feel really unfit. After 4 months of no exercise due to health problems I can really feel the difference in my fitness levels on long runs - I manage the distance but struggle and go very very slowly! I'm going to start Insanity again because I remember it helping with my fitness and running last time (even though I didn't finish it) I don't know if I'll be able to do all 6 workouts every week because the running has to take priority but I'll give it a go. So - fit test today!!
Hi Samantha - I did my fit test this morning. I've just finished T25 getting ready for another attempt at finishing Insanity too. My Marathon isn't till April but want to use this as a boost to my fitness over the hardest of the Winter months. Like you are i'll be juggling the schedule a little so i can still run.
I was pretty pleased with my test results as i ran a half yesterday and i sort of managed everything with scores pretty much just below an old set of results i found. Push up Jacks were slightly modified as i can't do a proper push up yet and i don't jump that high on jumps.
I'll try to post my results up later - good luck with yours
Ok so as promised here's my first fit test
Switch Kicks 45Power Jacks 46Power Knees 77Power Jumps 28 (i can't go as high or get my knees up as much as the machines)Globe Jumps 6Suicide Jumps 12Push Up Jacks 9 (modified as i still can't do a proper pushup so my arms only 1/2 bend as much as they should)Low Plank Oblique 24
Plyo Cardio done this morning and i'd forgotton how hard this is. The 2nd circuit killed me. Hurting now but in a good way.
How is it going Chrissi? I did my fit test nearly a week ago but haven't done any of the workouts yet.Did a 17km run at the weekend though. Will do Plyo today.
Samantha it's going great it's not easy but i'm loving it and no noticable effects on my running. I'm not doing it perfectly but i am doing it as best i can.
Well done on 17K run and hope Plyo went well
Plyo went well - better than expected Chrissi. Still have trouble with Level 1 drills, ski abs, in out abs though!!
You should see me trying that - i think i spend more time on my hands and knees gasping than doing the actual exercises.
i'm nearly at the end of week 2 now but will finish monday rather than tomorrow as it's long run weekend.
Hi just checked back after some time away,
Good to see people are still blogging
I got within 2 weeks of finishing Insanity then had appendicitis and had to have said appendix taken out so I was out of action for a while.
then I was on holiday and now I don't think I can start all over again
need some inspiration !
I was thinking of starting T25 and noticed a few people have done it on here
is it any good, it looks a bit easier than Insanity or is that wishful thinking!
got to start something, a long lay off and xmas have taken their toll!
