Insanity Day 4

Today’s workout was Cardio Recovery.  Just the name alone sounds like a refreshing break.  This DVD really focuses on stretching your hamstrings, quads, core, and hip flexors while working on your balance.  While it sounds easy enough, it felt great up until the last 8 minutes or so.  In the end, my stretching turned out to be muscles quivering because they were so weak they couldn’t hold the position anymore.  Shaun T. does say that form is the most important factor…so I took a break, re-grouped, corrected my form and held on for as long as humanly possibly. By the time my muscles couldn’t go anymore…we were done! 🙂

It really is a great DVD…I wish it was set up to use after every intense workout because I can already feel the difference 2 hours later.  But alas, I will have to look forward to it only once/week.

Next workout = Pure Cardio (so happy tomorrow is Easter Sunday, so I can at least have another day to recuperate)!

Til next time…
