Final day of Phase I. My energy levels were high with excitement at crossing the first hurdle. It had been a grueling three weeks and I felt fantastic.
The Total Body Workout was killer. I had grown accustomed to focusing on one or two muscles per workout. When it got really bad and painful I could simply focus on the rested muscle groups for comfort. There was no such thing in the total body workout. The opener was 15 wide grip pullups, 15 pushups, 15 alternating reverse lunges with weights, 15 crunches. Two sets of that, no rest, was a helluva way to start.
Of course, as often happened, I rose to the challenge. By the end of the workout I was feeling completely energized, ready to rip the head off of anyone that came near. I still had Beast Abs to do, which I had been swapping out for Insanity Max Abs as they were much more of a challenge. Granted, I had tried Beast Abs again the day before and found it to be tough – maybe I was losing some of what I had gained during the Insanity program.
I looked at the clock. I had time. I decided to do both ab programs. It was final day of this phase so why not? I’d have a rest day to recover.
My insides were obliterated. I couldn’t tell if it was a good thing or a bad thing. I’m sure I’d know next workout day. Phase I complete.
