P90X-Insanity Hybrid, Day 79: Max Interval Plyometrics

Today was another session of Max Interval Plyo. Sometime during the warmup, I believe in the second interval, Shaun T says that you’re warm now and you should at this point be feeling better than when you started. I had to laugh. Before I started, I was sitting in a chair, comfortable, with a heart rate probably around 75 bpm. Now, I was in the second interval of the Insanity warm up listening to Shaun T tell me how great I should be feeling. I thought I was hallucinating. Let me just say this: at no time have I ever felt better during any Insanity workout than I did before I started. In fact, I generally feel worse, and weaker, with each passing second.

So why do you put yourself through it then, you might ask? Well, it’s because I have certainly felt better AFTER having completed an Insanity routine on any given day. And I definitely felt better playing tennis and hiking than I did before subjecting myself to this Insanity-peppered hybrid regimen.

Next round, though, I may swap out some Insanity sessions for another cardio intensive activity: sitting at my computer and watching the wild swings of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Or the real-time price of gold rising as my dollars inflate away. I’m not quite ready yet, though. I need more cardio conditioning or it could kill me to watch either.
