Day three has come and gone. Today’s workout brings me to Cardio Power & Resistance. What’s funny about this workout is that it’s probably considered the toughest month 1 workout in the Insanity line up. From prior rounds I would agree, but this time through I feel I have a harder time with the Plyometric Cardio circuit workout. Having said that, Day 3 is still a beast for me.
Day 3 Cardio Power & Resistance
It’s a great feeling to notice when you are getting better at something. I have been doing this workout a few times here and there over the past few months and have come to like it. So today I pushed a little harder to see how far I could take myself. I went through the warm up almost without any breaks again today and that’s a good accomplishment. I feel I should be able to do the entire warm up without a break very soon. And I will definitely let you know when that happens. The most difficult moves on this workout for me are the Power Jumps and the Globe Jumps. Notice a recurring theme there? “JUMPS”. When you jump, especially from a squatted position you are using the largest muscles in the body causing your heart rate to shoot up quickly. So now my heart rate is high and my legs are screaming at me to stop. But you know what, every time that happened I KEPT GOING. That’s how you’ll be successful with Insanity, keep going. An as Shaun T says “Dig Deep”.
Day 3 Weigh In
From day 1 I decided I would weigh myself every other day to keep a running record of weight and fat loss. I usually don’t recommend weighing in this often to my Challengers because the moment the scale moves in the wrong direction some start to lose focus. For me I know the scale will fluctuated up and down when weigh in this often so it’s not going to effect me at all. With that said I weighed in today at 183.8 down from 185.2. That’s a weight loss of 1.4 pounds. Now let’s be realistic. I’m sure some or most of that is water weight and maybe a few other factors, but the bottom line is that it’s in the right direction.
Day 3 Tip!
Day 3 Cardio Power & Resistance Nutrition
Kept my nutrition in check today and met my goals once again. I hit my ratio’s at 48-32-20. Woot woot! And my sodium intake was sub 3,000. That’s become a really hard thing to keep down. If you are “eating clean” by eating processed food like deli meat just know that they have a ton of sodium in them. Using My Fitness Pal will help you keep your daily nutritional goals in check. Learn how to set it up here. Another thing I’m working to get down is the amount of sugar in a day I consume. It’s a work in progress, if you have any tips you’d like to share that have worked for you please to so in the comments below. For lunch and dinner I went with some recipe’s out of the Insanity Nutrition Guide. For lunch I went with the Proatmeal, which is really becoming one of my favorite recipes. I’ll be using it a lot over the next 60 days. For dinner I decided to go with Tuna Salad Stuff In a Tomato, it’s not to bad. Tuna is not something I love, but it’s ok. And being I was already high on the carbs by dinner this meal fit in nicely as it’s mostly protein.
