Insanity's Asylum Day 3: Strength
Today, I did the Strength workout for Day 3 of Asylum. I have mixed thoughts and feelings. During the warm-up, I felt a little frustrated because Shaun T has a weight in your hand first thing. I think Tony Horton has spoiled me with his P90X warm-ups. Pushing through, I made it through the mini-stretch portion. After, we started a rotation that was a curl, squat, jump back in to push-up/plank and back again. You are supposed to keep your hands on the dumbells while doing the push-up/plank, which I found a little wobbly for me. I had to make sure my weights were not going to roll out from under me, so it took me awhile to find my rhythm. I was hesistant to increase the weight for any of the moves because I had no idea of what was next. I'm still not sure whether or not I liked the workout. Since it was brand new to me, I feel my impressions are jaded. After a few more tries, I will be able to offer a more accurate assessment.
