It's Insanity!

I know, you think I mean our family.  And you wouldn't be far off the mark! :)

But what I'm really talking about is Beach Body's Insanity Workout by Shaun T.  Connor started this 9 week program last summer, in preparation for his upcoming swimming season.  He got to Week 7 and our schedules shifted dramatically once Gary was hospitalized, and he didn't complete it.

It was, and still is, a very difficult workout.  There's a reason they call it Insanity!  However, my nephew and his fiancĂ©e have just completed the P90X Workout and started Insanity last week.  Cory came home this weekend and he and Connor decided to start a "friendly" wager.

So tonight, Connor started Week 1, Day 1.  All over again.

It starts with the Fit Test, eight exercises in which you complete as many rotations as possible for a minute, with only a minute rest in between.  I wish I had had the presence of mind to snap a picture during this because halfway through it, he was just drenched in sweat.  I was practically hyperventilating just counting!

Even though he hasn't completed this test in almost a year, he still did quite well:

Switch Kicks:  108
Power Jacks:  70
Power Knees:  106
Power Jumps:  50
Globe Jumps:  14
Suicide Jumps:  15
PushUp Jacks:  22
Low Plank Obliques:  55

If he's up to it, I will add photos tomorrow and then post the results after every Fit Test!  And now, each night while he's doing his workout, I will try to jump onto the treadmill or rower - hopefully I will benefit from this all as well! :)


P/S:  Don't forget about the challenges on my blog for a chance to win:
Sketchy Challenge:  June 2013 (deadline:  June 30/13)
