Asylum....I'm committed! (or should I say "I should be committed", wink)

Today is day 1 of my official Insanity Asylum workout routine.  I did Speed and Agility and all I can say is "where is my puke bucket"?  This is one of THOSE kind of workouts!  (almost had to cry a few times) 

For anyone who is not sure what the heck I'm talking about, here is a link to these workouts:

I'm going to do the full 30 day rotation and see what transpires.  (hopefully not leaving me cowering in some corner, rocking myself gently, pleading for mercy) 

I did have to take a few breaks....okay a lot!  I'd give it my all on some exercises and then the last few (10-15) seconds I'd fester out.  Shaun just kept yelling "blah blah blah" and I definitely thought for a brief moment that I had been committed and this was some cruel torture exercise and in some ways IT WAS! 

But the workout itself (other than being tough stuff, which let me be honest, I do like to do, but I like to "complain" too, ha) was very sport oriented.  (more like his Max Sports Training from his Insanity set)  I have lots of room to grow and see improvement. 

30 days, hmm doesn't seem too long?  (or does it?!.....insert evil laugh)


  1. Tempted to buy Asylum, those puke in the bucket workouts are tough, I sometimes get that feeling and a little dread when I do Cathe's HIIT 40/20.

  2. Good luck Denise! I am sure you are an inspiration to many out there trying to become more healthy. I really commend you for your bravery and honesty. You are quite a gal! =)
