Insanity Month 2 Day 1: Max Interval Circuit
Oh. My. God.
I thought I was going to be sick this morning during Insanity’s first month 2 workout: Max Interval Circuit. There’s a reason that the recovery week is there. You need it.
The Insanity Month 2 workouts are each about an hour long and the first one, Max Interval Circuit, was hard. There were many times this morning where either my heart or my legs just… couldn’t. My leg muscles were taken all the way to fatigue in the first 30 minutes, and my heart rate was flying at multiple points in the workout.
For the Max Interval Circuit you do 3 different circuits, doing 3 sets of each. I think they are about 2 minutes long per set. The highlight for me was the frog jumps. I hate them so much but I push myself the hardest during them. The hardest exercise for me were the switch kicks on the floor. I could only do about 10 seconds of them the right way before I had to slow down and skip the jumping from leg to leg part. If you’ve done them you might know what I mean.
It’s now 1:30 PM and my legs feel really heavy. I have no idea how they will recover in time to do tomorrow’s plyo workout. I think I understand why so many people said their bodies change so much more in month 2. That extra 20 minutes of exercise makes a big impact.
I’ve been at this for 5 weeks now, and I can tell. I’m on autopilot now where I eat well and exercise every morning because it’s simply part of my routine, no different than brushing my teeth.
