Insanity Week #3: My legs are morphing into sexy-awesome! I also completed my 2nd of 5 Fit Tests to measure progress (same Fit Test every two weeks). I’ve already achieved measurable gains in cardio and strength.
Insanity Week #2: This is where the rubber hit the road. The excitement and newness of the workout is still there, but the reality of having to do these hardcore workouts for 60 totals days has begun to sink in. Whoa …”This effin’ bullsh!t” …that’s way I said during one of my workouts this week while I was pouring sweat. But don’t worry. It was all very rewarding once I was finished. Can’t promise there won’t be more cussing, though.
