I made this today for a way to get good full body supersets when I don’t feel like driving 30 minutes to the gym. All feedback is appreciated.

PS. Don’t forget to stretch!!

Insanity Day 12 : Cardio Power and Resistance

Workout : I love that during the workout I feel like I’m dying and after I feel accomplished, but still like I’m dying.

Food Intake :

Breakfast : 1 poached egg over a handful of asparagus with a side of breakfast potatoes, half a piece of toast and a glass of orange juice

Lunch : Spinach salad with strawberries, blueberries, pecans, almonds with sesame ginger dressing and a nutty bar. Same lunch as yesterday because I’m running out of groceries and don’t have a car to go buy more. lol

Snack : Grapes!

Dinner : Small bowl of pad thai at work

Conclusion : It’s almost been 2 weeks and I’m already seeing a slight improvement. Very slight, but I see it! Now to work on controlling that sweet tooth and late night eating. I’m also thinking about adding sprints to my workouts starting on day 15. I miss having a sprinters booty ;)

Insanity Day 6 : Plyo Cardio Circuit

Workout : On 4 hours of sleep, this suckkkked!

Food diary :

Breakfast : 1 bowl of island vanilla kashi cereal with unsweetened vanilla almond milk

- The rest of the day will consist of random small portions of family cooked holiday food. My tweaks are thrown in here and there, but they get offended when I don’t eat their food.

  • I plan on doing the 100 workout before bed. 

I hope you all have a good Easter :)

After moving across the country I have yet to join a gym. I’ve been doing workouts at home, but in the morning I have to be quiet bc my roommates sleep late and get pissed when I wake them up. My dilemma is that I hate push-ups. How else am I going to get a good arm workout without them? I miss access to free weights.

I changed the last “20 jumping jacks” to 20 push-ups. Decent workout.

Best feelings ever :

Not having to rush a good workout. Being able to give 110%. The sense of accomplishment when you realize you worked out so hard you can barely walk up the stairs that lead to your apartment.
