Today's Workout Description: Cardio Power & Resistance
Tomorrow's Workout: Pure Cardio & Cardio Abs
Date of today's workout: Tuesday, July 21, 2009
Duration: About 40 minutes
Type: Intense Cardio

Rule #1: Never go into Insanity not hydrated.

Today, my water intake was down from my normal 80 oz. or more because it was a hectic, busy work day. Normally, I'm home for at least lunch, and I can fill up my 36 oz. water bottle once so I've hit 72 ounces of water in 8 hrs. Today, I didn't have such luck. In fact, I'm just now hitting 94 oz. of water daily, and much of that came during Insanity tonight.

The reason I tell you not to go into this workout like that is because of the sweat equity this workout demands. Your body has to draw from somewhere for the sweat, my friends. I definitely felt the difference in tonight's workouts--moves that were easier last time were a bit more challenging, as if this were the first time I'd attempted this workout almost.

That said, this workout is still a butt-kicking good time! By the time we hit 8 Hops/8 Pushups, I was actually pooped, and last time, I was actually asking why there weren't more of those. I'm still quite sore in my obliques and glutes (and you can add hamstrings to that now). Every part of me wanted to actually skip tonight's workout due to the soreness, but I had to remind myself that being sore is not an excuse for not working out, nor is it (generally) your body's way of telling you "no more."

I'm looking forward to tomorrow's killer--the first rotation of Cardio Abs! This will be interesting. I'm looking to define my abs just a bit more anyhow, so I'm curious about the burn that I'll get tomorrow. I can't wait, honestly! Sadistic, yes. Honest, always. Notice how the Insanitometer is not moving, though! LOL!

Protein powder, here I come...

Insanitometer Rating: 8 out of 10.
