Insanity Pure Cardio Review - Day 5

Insanity Pure Cardio is 38 minutes, which doesn't sound like a lot of time, but you'll keep an eye on that clock waiting for it to tick down to zero.

To start, you'll have the usual heart-pounding "warm up" (it's really more of a workout) for 10 minutes. After which is a short break for some much needed water.

Next you have about 5 minutes of power stretching to get ready for the real workout. Shaun T. starts out by saying he is "nervous" about the workout. If you do not know anything about Shaun T., he is a ripped, in fantastic shape guy. So when you hear him saying he is "nervous" you're thinking "oh crap".

The real workout is 15 minutes long with 15 different exercises at 1 minute each. NO BREAKS! But when you are working out at max intensity for that long of a period it's almost impossible to not take a break.

  • Suicides
  • Switch kicks
  • Football sprints
  • Stance Jacks
  • Pedal
  • Hooks and Jump Rope
  • Power jacks
  • Level 2 Drills (these differ from level 1 by having an extra jump in them)
  • Frog Jumps
  • Power Knees
  • Mountain Climbers
  • Ski Down
  • Scissor Runs
  • Suicide Jumps
  • Push up jacks

You'll get a full minute break after this nightmare. It's tough and very challenging. At the very end Shaun T. is on the floor sweating. You'll feel great!

There is a 4 minute cool down period where you'll be doing several stretches.

Here are my stats for this morning's workout:

Avg. Heart Rate: 161
Max Heart Rate: 193
Min. Heart Rate: 85
Cals. Burned: 801
