Holy buckets of sweat, Batman. Insanity is certainly aptly named.
As you can see, I survived my first craigslist transaction–only to be beaten up by the DVD itself. Tonight was the Fit Test–not even a real workout–and I was genuinely concerned that I was going to have a heart attack for a few minutes there. It was harder than any boot camp I’ve done to date, and harder than most of my personal training sessions as well. I had no idea what I was getting myself into!
The Fit Test consists of a warm-up, a series of eight 60-second exercise tests and a cool-down. Every two weeks for the next 60 days I will retake the test and evaluate my progress. Without further ado, here are my current stats:
Switch kicks (kicking your left leg straight up, then your right; two kicks=1): 54
Power jacks (jumping jacks into a squat position): 36
Power knees (bringing your knee up to your chest at a diagonal): 72
Power jumps (I’ve already forgotten what these are because my brain is doing its best to repress the memories): 31
Globe jumps (jumping into a squat right, back, left, front; four jumps=1): 8
Suicide jumps (what my gym calls burpees–and what I calll torture): 10
Push-up jacks: 22
Low plank obligues: 35 (but with poor form; I just can’t keep my butt out of the air!)
We are also supposed to take before-and-after photos. I took these a couple of days ago because I thought I’d be getting Insanity sooner than I did:
Pardon the water droplets. I was running through the sprinkler with my dogs. 🙂
Current weight: 219.6
Can’t wait to see what changes in two weeks! Off to see how Jon did on his Fit Test. I was holed up in the office with the dogs, who could not stand the fact that their dad (don’t judge; we are nauseating pet parents) was running, but they couldn’t join in.
