My group knows I’m not one that can have a lot of down time in a workout……..and I’ve got to switch it up. Today was a little something I called Insanity! I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been pumped about this workout for 2 weeks and I was ready to use it. A few weeks ago I tried my first Insanity class at a local gym; this is my twist on it. We had a fearless group of pax that joined for some quick paced insanity and lots of plyo (thanks Sarge for the vocabulary lesson).
We began with a light stretch while I explained The Thang:
There were 4 exercises per set. The first round the exercise was done for 45 seconds, with 10 sec. break. The 2nd round, the excercise was done for 30 seconds with a 5 second break. The 3rd round the exercise was done for 30 seconds, with a 3 second break with a ‘finisher push on the last exercise.
After each set the pax caught our breath for roughly 20-30 seconds before starting the next set.
4 sissors with a cross over
High Knees while jumping rope
Mtn Climbers (single arm for 3rd round finisher)
Push up with tuck back
Single leg glute raise with switch kick
Continuous Switch kick on ground (add tricep dip for finisher)
Heisman/Soccer (switch lead leg each round)
Rt. Lunge/Kick (rt 1st time, left 2nd time, and squat the 3rd)
4 alt. punches with 2 diamond jumps (no finisher this time)
Alt Toe Touch in Crab
Plank jack (alternating arms was the finisher, but we did it all the time 🙂 )
Ab Sprints (no finisher)
On set 4 and 5 we only had time 2 do the rounds twice as time was getting close to finish.
It was fast paced, but a great workout.
Thanks for letting me Q
