Now that you’ve gotten to the second month of the Insanity workout, you’ll be encountering Max Interval Circuit, the first Max workout for the month. This circuit comes in right after Recovery Week, so it is expected that your body will be well-rested and ready to take on what’s in store for this 60-minute Insanity workout!
MAX Interval Circuit Review and Walk-through
This Max Interval Circuit will start out with a 10-minute warm up, consisting of three identical sets. As is customary, the second set is of greater intensity than the first, and the third set will really force you to push it. You’re required to complete the same routines in less time, so be prepared for a really intense warm up! The jogs, jumping jacks, switch kicks and floor hops will leave you breathless. Take a 30-second water break, do some stretches then jump right into the main workout.
The main workout is just under 40 minutes long, and is broken down into three rounds. Expect each round to be more difficult than the first, just like in the warm up. You’ll start off with three identical sets of exercises in Round 1, including power lunges, ski abs, power strikes and oblique workouts, among others. Each set is performed at a higher intensity than the previous one, but don’t worry – you’ll have plenty water breaks in between.
Rounds 2 and 3 are structured pretty similarly to the first round, with the exercises broken up into three sets. Round 2 includes high knees, hook jumps and floor switch kicks, while Round 2 includes suicide jumps and plank punches. The distinguishing factor for Rounds 1 and 2 is that the have an additional exercise at the end of the three sets, while Round 3 does not have an additional exercise. But don’t think that makes it any easier – it’s actually the most monstrous round of the three!
If you’ve made it through to the end, you’ll have the opportunity to take a water break and do some cool down stretches for a few minutes. Then you can just lay there and feel totally proud of yourself for reaching to a level of Insanity that very few people get to see!
