Today's Workout Description: Max Interval Plyo
Tomorrow's Workout: Max Cardio Conditioning
Date of today's workout: Saturday, August 15, 2009
Duration: 1 Hour
Type: Very High Intensity Cardio/Interval Training

Remember how I said that there was a very good chance that, upon entering this month, I'd actually be begging for Plyometric Cardio Circuit to return? Today would be that day! Plyometric Cardio Circuit would almost be my savior right now!

Max Interval Plyo is NOT A JOKE! This workout today is NOT for the faint of heart nor the weak of will! Instead, Shaun hits you with, what I presume is everything he has in this workout! I remember during P90X saying, "I didn't know this many variety of pushups actually existed!" There are few pushup variations that even Tony doesn't take you through that Shaun takes you through and takes NO PRISONERS!

I think the most challenging move today would have to be the Side Plank Pushups, not because they were difficult, but because there was so much to remember and pay careful attention to as to not injure yourself. Coming in at number two would be squat pushups. Essentially, you go down into a squat, tip forward controlled, go down to the floor still in squat, do a tricep pushup, and using your abs and triceps and a bit of gravity (which is working altogether against you) push yourself back up into the squat only to fall back forward and repeat. Coming in at #3 would have to be my arch nemesis: Level 3 Drills. Yes, level THREE! That is, you're doing sixteen pushups and then staying in plank running it out for sixteen repititions, only to jump up, say hello to your sanity, and jump back down and do it all over again! If you're wondering, yes, it's much harder than yesterday's workout!

To say that I am spent after this workout would be putting it mildly. I'm freaking dead, people. Dead.

Overall Insanitometer Rating: 10 out of 10
