Well I finally completed Insanity today! I’m pretty hyped and I’m glad that my friends inspired me to take this challenge! This workout, as opposed to P90X, is a different beast entirely. Its cardio basesd, nd uses interval training to push your body to the limits. I really felt like I was at the combine! Combined with a great diet, I’ve seen great results, lost weight, lost body fat, and feel excellent! I’ll detail my stats when I do the normal workout log on Monday.
NO time to dwell on the accomplishment though. It’s on to the next one! Earlier, I spoke about a P90X-Insanity hybrid program that I was eager to try. Sunday I begin. For anyone who’s done P90x or Insanity, this program doesn’t look like it’s for the faint of heart, but I’m up to the challenge! Check out the PDF of the workout here => P90X Insanely Reloaded Plus Final to follow along. Now as you can see, it follows the P90X 3 month format. This looks tough enough, but I’m going to turn it up a few notches. Here are the modifications I’m going to make
No Days Off
That’s right. No. Off. Days! Usually I’d take my off day to rest up, but I do not want to be idle. I want to be doing some type of intense workout 7 days a week to continuously challenge my body to be its best. Then again, I don’t want to do the X-Stretch on those days either, which brings me to my next point…
The Off Day Schedule:
Instead of doing X-Stretch, in Phase 1 i’m going to do Max interval Sports Training. It’s my favorite exercise, burns calories, and gives me a great balance of endurance and cardio. A great “off day exercise”. Im going to assess my body composition and progress after phase 1. I might keep doing that or switch in Phase 2.
In phase 2, I’m thinking about bringing back the Legs/Back exercise and mix that with Max Interval Training. Upon further review, I’ll do Legs/Back to give more weight training emphasis on Phase 2.
Phase3 Ill alternate weeks with Max Sports and Legs/Back. Shiiiit I’m gonna be wasted!
Alternate Insane Abs and Cardio Abs
The insane ab exercise is a fat burner and torture on the core. I like cardio abs as well. Since we’re doing Ab Ripper X too, I think a healthy rotation will keep my core guessing, and get it ripped!
Going to the gym
Im going to goto the gym to do most of the P90X exercises. I like my gym and want to have mroe variety of weights to use. Time to return!
So there are my tweaks and my goal is in sight. Can’t wait for the future. Whos joining me?!
