Talking Insanity!

Today I started Insanity with Shaun T, and yep, it's pretty bloody insane. The fit test was laughable, and I could barely get through the warm up, but here are my (AWFUL) stats anyway:

1) Switch Kicks: 25
TBH though, with these I wasn't entirely sure what was going on. I was drinking some water when all of a sudden I turned round and Shaun and his comrades were already halfway through the kicks! So yeah, um, next time I'll be ready!

2) Power Jacks: 31

3) Power Knees: 51

4) Power Jumps: 16
It started getting 10x TOUGHER from here!

5) Globe Jumps: 7

6) Suicide Jumps: 7
Suicide indeed, mate.

7) Push-up Jacks: 9
This I found pretty much impossible, I had to do the 'girl' push up where you cross your legs and lower. Modify, modify, modify!

8) Low Plank Oblique: 16
Yeah, I counted both legs as 1, so if I counted each leg individually, it would be 32

Suffice to say, at the end of it I was sweating buckets and panting so much I can't even think of a comparison for it. But, you know what, I had energy. It was amazing. My spirit was willing to go on even though my flesh was dying. I pretty much fell over when I tried to get up the stairs which was an interesting experience. But, it was an achievement, even if it was minor.

Anyway, here are my measurements, so I and you can compare as I go on. (Hopefully I go on!!)

Weight: 12st 5

Waist: 32 and a half inches
Hips: 44 inches
Right Thigh: 24 inches
Left Thigh: 24 inches
Chest: 38 inches
Left Bicep: 13 inches
Right Bicep: 13 inches

Have any of you done Insanity? I'd love to hear if you have! And if you have any questions regarding it, please ask And you can follow this thread if you want for Insanity updates, I plan on updating AT LEAST once a week!

Speak soon!
