Insanity, Month 2, Day Whichever: Max Cardio Circuit

Yeah, so I put off doing the first DVD from Month 2 of Insanity. I was too scared Sunday to do it. I like how I avoid things. I start cleaning, finding stuff to clean and start harping on every little speck of dust....Well, that's all the time, but whatever.

The good news is I finally got my lazy ass up and did Max Cardio Circuit last night. Albeit tough with lots of push-up moves, I comforted myself with the fact that this is probably the EASIEST of the Month 2 DVDs. YESSS!!! SCORE! (ha)

Some moves of note from the workout?

What I like to call "Almost Dead": Ski abs, push-up jacks, in and out abs and oblique knee push-ups (yeah...That's all ONE move.).

Full Body Drill: Go to plank position, plank runs, moving push-ups and wide oblique runs....(Also ONE move.)
Me after my workout....Still looking fly.

Excited much? I know those of you who don't do Insanity probably have no clue how hard those moves are by themselves...strung together is torture. I took several breaks, but proudly they weren't too long of breaks. I felt like I was somewhat starting completely from scratch. The difference between month 1 and 2 is pretty amazing. Amazing something hard could get even more difficult!!!!!

I'm still waiting for my "Is this a F***** joke!?" moment...I'm sure it'll be today or tomorrow's workout. We'll see....and I'll let you know.

Happy Tuesday. Where's Friday??????

Here are 3 kick-butt bodyweight exercises you can do to burn fat,
stay energized, and avoid overeating.

Bodyweight exercises help you burn fat shockingly fast, without any
fancy equipment.

1) Any Single-Leg Exercise
The pistol (single-leg squat to the floor) is the most advanced
1-leg exercise. But you can also do assisted single-leg squats with
a band, or onto a bench, or even with a Stability Ball between your
back and the wall.

If you aren't ready for single-leg squats, you can use Bulgarian
Split Squats, Reverse Lunges, regular split squats, or lying 1-leg
hip bridges if you are a beginner.

2) Decline Push-ups
These are harder than normal pushups, thanks to your elevated feet.
And in this position, you can still use a close-grip to fatigue
your triceps, a "piked-hip position" to build your shoulders, or
even the Spiderman leg motion to work on your abs.

3) Bodyweight Inverted Rows
I choose these over chinups and pullups because bodyweight rows let
your chest rest, while your back is strengthened. It's the perfect
compliment to a pushup.

Do 8-12 repetitions per exercise. Don't rest between exercises. Go
through the circuit up to 3 times, resting 1 minute after each
circuit.

For a once-per-month challenge, do each exercise to failure in your
final round through the circuit.
