T25 Fast Track Week 1 and Meal Plan

My T25 Fast Track week wrapped up with me jotting down my calories burned for Alpha Cardio. I had already weighed myself that morning and the results were happily received. I've been doing P90 Phase 1-2 for the past couple of months and had stalled on my weight loss. So the 7.2 pounds I lost in only one week of T25 was awesome! Of course I was eating only 1100 calories a day (probably closer to 1300). This week I'll be eating upwards of 1600 calories a day.


WebMD Insanity Review

Michael Esco, PhD, CSCS of WebMD posted a review on Insanity. Here are some snippets.

The Insanity workouts are highly intense and designed for people who are already in good shape. It is not intended for special-need populations, such as cardiovascular, pulmonary, and metabolic disease patients, diabetics, or obese people, and people with orthopedic limitations. If you are extremely unfit and looking for an “easy fix”, then Insanity is not for you. The program will work best for people who already exercise on a regular basis and are willing to work hard.


Insanity Plyo Cardio Circuit Review - Day 6

See my review about Plyometric Cardio Circuit. Today is my rest day, but this posting is about my workout yesterday.

Yesterday went well. It’s still extremely difficult, especially on little sleep as I went to Notre Dame today and was up at 4:48 AM to workout. I pushed myself to keep my heart rate above 170 for the duration of the workout (except stretch and cool down).


Insanity Pure Cardio Review - Day 5

Insanity Pure Cardio is 38 minutes, which doesn't sound like a lot of time, but you'll keep an eye on that clock waiting for it to tick down to zero.

To start, you'll have the usual heart-pounding "warm up" (it's really more of a workout) for 10 minutes. After which is a short break for some much needed water.


Insanity Cardio Recovery Review - Day 4

Insanity's Cardio Recovery is an easier workout than the other routines. It consists mostly of stretching and yoga moves.

There are breathing and stretching exercises, plank work, deep muscle work (which will require some leg strength for holding deep squats), quad work, oblique work, hip flexor, and balance postures.

Overall, you'll sweat a little, but it's a relatively easy workout for a "rest" day (the real rest days are Sundays).

As my calves are still very sore today, this was a much needed routine. You'll be doing Cardio Recovery for the first month.
