Fit Friday. Insanity Max: Month 1, Week 2.

Last week I talked about Month 1, Week 1 and how it nearly killed me. This week it’s all about Month 1, Week 2. And how I feel like it killed me a little bit less.

Week 2 wasn’t as hard as Week 1. I feel like a lot of that though is because I knew what to expect. I felt like I had a pretty good handle on the work outs and what each one was about so I felt like overall I did better just because I knew what to expect.

I managed to go almost two (!!) minutes longer than last week. I was very impressed. I didn’t feel like the warm-up was going to kill me like I did last week so we’re on the up and up here.

Only about a 30 second increase from last weeks Tabata Power workout. Which is good simply because I did better this week than I did last week and that’s the goal. My legs pretty much still feel like jelly after this work out though which honestly surprises me because I have been working out for months and I run – I have strong legs. So that tells me just how hard these work outs are and just how hard I’m being pushed.

A huge difference above last week (from 7:45 – that’s 3 1/2 minutes!). I’m definitely feeling stronger and I know for sure that I have never been pushed harder or to more to my max in my life. I am really astounded at the changes I’m already seeing in my fitness level and I think this work out is really what showed me how far I’ve come in a short time (1 week) and how far I think I can go by the end of it if I keep making progress (no matter how small; progress is progress).

This one is killer for me which is evident by the fact that I’m only able to increase my time by 30 seconds or so between workouts. I have been having a love-hate (more hate than love) relationship with the plyo push ups in this one and I finally made it through them during this workout. They are tough but they are getting me stronger and putting some definition in my arms.

It should be noted I don’t base my “increase” on the workout from the day before but from the last time I did the same workout. So Friday I didn’t make it as long as I did on Thursday but I made it about 2 1/2 minutes longer than I did last Friday. That is progress. And I feel really good about it.

Overall thoughts.

I noticed that I was actually leaving the modifier in the dust this week. That is huge because I was sticking with the modifier last week because I think I was a little afraid at just how hard the other people were working and this week I decided I didn’t care how hard THEY were working because it only mattered how hard I was working. I’m feeling stronger and much better about myself this week. And I was really looking forward to tackling Week 3 and seeing just how much better I do.
