Sunday Morning, Praise the Dawning

Hey Hey Hots and Fits!

How has your weekend been? Everything was so relaxing here. As usual, I did a whole lot of nothing, ate too much junk Friday night and Saturday…
I am really trying hard to keep this under control…I used to be quite determined but I don’t know what is going on now.

On the good news, things are definitely warming up here, I could probably start running outside again, however I am a little concerned because I run early in the morn’ and its like -6C which usually means really icy roads (melted snow = black ice). So, its just a matter of DAYS as far as I see it.

I also watched Valentine’s Day with the sibs and a bunch of friends. Was okay. Hated the fact that Patrick Dempsey was an ass. And that Eric Dane and Bradley Cooper were gay (such a waste of assets). However, the worst part was having to stand Taylor “frog” Swift. Can’t stand her. Something so fake about her act. And voice. And attitude.

So, big INSANITY news, this week I finally tried another new workout from the MAX series

INSANITY MAX CARDIO CONDITIONING

The day before doing this workout, I tweeted the following to Katie:

I knew this was going to be total kick-ass. I was actually afraid of what’s going to come up!

The warm up started with the following drills which are repeated twice:

  • Jog
  • Jumping Jacks – Arms Up
  • 123 Heisman
  • Jump Rope Side-to-Side
  • High Knees – Arms Out
  • Switch Kicks
  • Hit the Floor – Bend down at each side to touch the floor
  • Side-to-Side Floor Hops

Then the last set lasts about a minute and a half and consists of the following drills:

  • Jog/Sprint
  • Jumping Jacks
  • Heisman (bring knees up from one side to the other without turning your torso)
  • 123 Heisman
  • High Knees

And then the workout. 29 minutes of CARDIO:

  • High and Low Jab with Squat
  • Football Runs

  • 4 Basketball Shots with 4 squats to each side
  • Right and Left Kicks
  • Diamond Jumps

  • In-and-Out and Push Up Jacks – do 4 in-and-outs followed by 4 push up jacks
  • Suicide Jumps
  • High Knee/Sprint/Floor Sprints – eight high knees, eight normal sprints, eight floor sprints
  • Ski Abs
  • Kick Step Back – a recovery exercise also known as Charleston Kick to all you P90Xers
  • Squat Twists – another recovery exercise
  • Over the River Hops – last recovery exercise in which you sort of skate from side to side keeping your core tight
  • Attack – push palm outs twice on each side
  • Power Knees
  • Ski Down Hooks – feet together, hop from side to side, while doing a hook
  • Belt Kicks – kick each leg while bending at the hips
  • Forward Back Suicides – like frog jumps only with running feet

  • Push Up Abs
  • Plank Punches
  • 8 Jump Ropes/8 Hop Squats
  • Speed Bag – in a squat, rotate your hands as quickly as you can

LOVED every second of this.

Today I just did 4 repeats of this week’s WSU Challenge, and am just about to plan out my workouts for the next week. Will definitely post them up here today or tomorrow.

So, tell me how hard you workout this weekend. And how do you deal with the weekend eats? I just can’t seem to resist. I need to get out of the casa more often!
