Fitness over 50 : insanity day 1

It started today with a fit test. A 60 dayplus  work out routine from shawn T  and beach body. High intensity…insanity.

today was the fit test to see how fit i am and to measure up coming weeks. 8 moves do as many as possible in a minute. I did:

54 switch kicks

47 power jacks

80 power knees

37 power jumps

6 globe jumps

12 suicide jumps

20 push-up jacks

42 low plank oblique

at the end of the last two i was crawling to the paper to record the amounts done. and soon my stomach was telling me i was an idiot for too long in my eating and drinking habits. i mean my lunch from 6 hours ago was still grease lined in my stomach lining and protesting every move. it lasted for an hour , like heart burn. so it was like death bed resolves going out. you know like i promise no more alcohol for 2 months and a big limit on red meat and eat more like their recommendations.

all in all i think i did OK. ill start the real workout on Monday. hopefully the gastrological part of me will be better prepared.

  1. Good luck and may I just say you have some pretty impressive numbers there. I did two rounds of Insanity as well as Asylum. I love me some Shaun T.

  2. Hahaha. You obviously gave it your all! Go hard or go home. All the best to you!
