That’s the sound of my sweat hitting the keyboard as I type! One thing is for sure: INSANITY’s plyometrics makes you sweat!
Overall, it was a good HIIT workout. Even the warm-up got my heart rate through the roof! It included jogging, jumping jacks, Heismans, 1-2-3 Heismans, butt kicks, high knees, and mummy kicks. Each activity was 30s and the whole circuit was done 3 times lasting just about 10 minutes.
After the warm-up, the bulk of the workout was two circuits done three times. I made it through the first circuit three times with relative ease but the second one kicked my butt! Halfway through the second time doing the second circuit I caved and had to take an extra water break. Then throughout the last time doing the second circuit my speed fell off. My ski abs were pretty pathetic too; I was no longer jumping my feet up to my hands, instead they only jumped up a couple inches.
All in all, I am so happy I did it! I find that doing a workout at lunch is something I may want to incorporate more as it has given me more energy now for this afternoon. Normally after lunch I’m itching for a nap and can barely keep my eyes open but doing INSANITY really got my blood flowing.
Since I am at work I cannot make a smoothie (lack of a blender), so I settled for a greek yogurt for post workout protein. I also have two slices of chicken to have as my mid afternoon snack with some cut up veggies! I am drinking water like a maniac… good thing the water cooler is right beside my desk.
That’s all for now!
