(For a review of day two, please go here:


I sit typing this blog full of recovery drink and most likely on the brink of what I'm sure is certain death! Possibly the most brutal in the "Insanity" bracket thus far, today combines a barrage of plyometrics and football strength conditioning to become one insane emm-effer!

Things start out semi-innocently, going right into an intense warm up, that, in 10 minutes, will have you ready to hit the deck. Then, it's onto the stretch and actual workout. The moves themselves weren't too terribly challenging today, but they definitely were quick, jumpy, and precise. The worst of today were the power jumps (read: powering up from a squat position until your body is completely airborne) and all the tricep work. Triceps are easily my weakest area, and tonight it definitely showed!

I ended this workout BEGGING for a recovery drink, and even finishing this blog nearly 15 mins after, I'm just now returning to equilbrium, although a nice protein shake does sound AMAZING right now. All in all, I'm sure to continue my perpetual soreness well into day 4...

Insanitometer Rating: 8 out of 10.

  2. Wow, I gave up added sugar in Feb. of this year, so I stopped with the recovery drink while doing P90x/P90x+. It sounds like I may have to add the recovery drink back in when I start Insanity.
