Insanity fit test round 2 results

Monday was Insanity fit-test day. The first retake of the test since day 1…much to my surprise, I improved!!

I don’t know why I was surprised, this program promises great things..and seems to deliver them πŸ˜€

On second thoughts…when I think about it…I do know why I am surprised…It is because this program is hard work…and 2 weeks in it doesn’t seem any less hard work than it did on day 2! I feel just as wiped out at the end.

However…It has been said before, the reward for hard work is more hard work πŸ˜€

what I mean is, that the nature of this program is that it never gets easy…the more you can do, the more you do…so I suppose I must be doing more than I was at the start πŸ˜€


Woohoo progress πŸ˜€

I am really pleased with this, I increased in all the exercises…

Just like Mr Shaun T said I would… πŸ˜€

Things you need to know about this test…


total craziness…insanity probably…

Globe jumps are actually 4 jumps in one test so an increase of 3 is actually an increase of 12 πŸ™‚

Suicide jumps are also known by the familiar name of burpees…

Push up jacks makeΒ Β plank jacks look like a short amble around the park!Β IΒ remember when I was I was pleased to be able to do plank jacks…

As I have said before…woohoo progress πŸ˜€

shaun t you can do it

He says this a lot…

Shaun T says the a lot..

I might even be starting to believe him!

Yes..this whole post was just an excuse to tell you (again) how much I love Insanity…

I might be becoming an Insanity bore!

but that is because it is awesome…and hard work…did I mention that?
