Here is how my Fit Test went - 30 Minute Insanity Fit Test:

Switch Kick = 115 [I can do lots of these, its my fav...so I did 115 on both sides for fun]
Squat Jack = 56
Power Knees = 105
Power Jumps = 51
Global Jumps = 10
Suicide Jumps = 15
Push Up Jacks = 12
Low Plank Obliques = 40

What I like about this workout is plyo....plain and simple I love jump moves and always have. If you have bad knees the only real hard move on this is the Power Jumps. I did not go deep on this move at all, or it would cost me time off.

My favorite move was Push up to burpee climbers, these are fast, FUN and furious. Followed by Suicide and Mummy kicks.

I like Shaun T. in this workout his training style is very bootcamp with some sugar on it. [Motivation and clear direction] These are basic moves taken up a notch, and I would NOT say this is even a intermediate level workout unless you really tone it down. If you can't get through the fit test with some decent numbers, just keep working on that before you start.

Otherwise you may set yourself up for injury. I will let you know tomorrow how my back feels.

On another note, the holiday went great very productive. I got some house chores done at the Barbie house, and got my new tree planted. I did not get to put the pictures up but its a Japanese Maple going to the right side of the bay. Woo woo been wanting that for about 8 years and got it 1/2 price for $20. I figure if I kill it that's NOT much money, since the bigger ones were $90! [and that's at half price]

Against the blue siding its fabulous!

See the dead shrub there on the very right?

That's where the new tree is at, and its about 1/2 way up the bay so its just a baby. It needed some height there and the azaleas are now trimmed and lovely too they were getting too big but I had to wait till after they bloomed.

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend.....now its time to get BUSY with some INSANITY! If anyone has this workout and has been doing it, what is your favorite?
