Insanity Review – Round 1 – Day 1

Round 1 – Day 1: Fit Test

Weight: 171.8 lbs
Body Fat: 10.5%

My initial impression of Insanity: CONVINCED! I was out of breath, gasping for air by the middle of the fit test. I kept pushing on and did my very best to get through alive. Insanity is nothing like P90X, but will leave puddles of sweat on your mat by the end of the work. I can definitely see how this program is going to take me down to pro-athlete level body fat in 60 days. It is not joke!

Here are my numbers:

Switch Kicks – 120
Power Jacks – 50
Power Knees: 79
Power Jumps: 30
Globe Jumps: 6
Suicide Jumps: 15
Push-up Jacks: 21
Low Plank Oblique: 64

It was tough, and I was wavering around the middle of the test, but finished strong. I put every ounce of effort into it and “dug deeper” as Shaun T says. Now I have that post-workout high and feel good.

Tip of the day: Go in kicking and screaming! That’s right, I reversed the old saying… If you don’t give 125% during the Insanity Fit test, you are setting yourself up for 60 days of mediocre effort, and mediocre results. So give it everything, and start off on the left foot.

    • Hi Glen,

      Great job!

      I did count every two kicks as one. I was dying by the time we did globe jumps… My cardio isn’t what I thought, but it will be in no time. I thought that the fit test was REALLY hard, and he was giving us 60 second breaks. I can’t wait to see what’s in store tonight! I love a challenge.
