Insanity Day 1 Dig Deeper and Fit Test

Share
This morning I started Insanity. I weighed in at 182.8. I have not worked out for the past 5 days due to pulling a muscle in my shoulder (lifting computer equipment at work), so weight is up by 2.8 pounds. Today was the first day my shoulder did not hurt. It feels a little sore as I write this.

The fit test does not burn a lot of calories in its 30 minute block. However, it’s not meant to, it’s designed to test your fitness level. But, you still burn a comparable amount for that 30 minutes.

According to my HRM, in 26 minutes I burned 547 calories.

  • Min Heart Rate: 71
  • Average Heart Rate: 161
  • Maximum Heart Rate: 189

When you begin day one watch or fast forward through the fit test before you begin. This will give you an idea of what the exercises are. You’ll have one minute per exercise with a minute break. You’ll need it too.

My Fit Test Results
  1. Switch Kicks: 60
  2. Power Jacks: 50
  3. Power Knees: 74
  4. Power Jumps: 25
  5. Globe Jumps: 7
  6. Suicide Jumps: 8
  7. Push-Up Jacks: 20
  8. Low Plank Oblique: 42
Meals

I stuck with the nutrition plan and had approximately 2470 calories. I now know I was not eating enough during P90x. I was full all day today eating this much. This is also with a 500 deficit in order to lose weight. I'll be eating the same meals all week, but will probably pick different meals for next week.
