Day 12: Cardio Recovery
Day 13: Cardio Power and Resistance
Day 14: Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs
Day 15: Fit Test 2
First off, I need to say that I didn’t realize that I was this far behind on posting! Sorry about that. I have been doing my workouts faithfully, though. This weekend was consumed by a final paper for my statistics class, along with lesson planning for the upcoming classes that I teach this semester. My life is insanely busy. Doing an insane workout regiment sounds about right for a guy like me.
Now, you have heard my opinions of the fit test, pure cardio, and cardio power and resistance. This week we added a little something new into the mix: Cardio Abs. I have be anxiously awaiting this workout, due to my apparent love of pain. From struggling through ARX in the beginning of P90X, to doing doubles three times a week, I have made huge gains in this area over the past 7-8 months.
Cardio Abs was a great workout, and I think that it will be a perfect change for my routine. It is different than P90X because you are keeping your abs flexed for the majority of the workout. There are a few rests, but when you work the abs, it could be 3-4 minutes of continuous strain. This workout combined with all of the jumping and core work in Insanity is a great ab workout. It was tough, but I made it all the way through with no breaks. I will let you know how my abs feel tomorrow. That is the real test…
