Insanity - Fit Test #2

Week 3 of Insanity starts out with the grueling Fit Test.  My husband and I both did better this time around, but I have to say, none of the workouts thus far have left me as winded and gasping for air as this Fit Test did.  I think I was having a somewhat off morning to start out, but wow, I really got wiped out after this.  And afterwards, we took the kids to Great Adventure, so needless to say, I slept REALLY well last night.  Almost didn't get up to work out this morning, but I knew I had a crazy day and there was little chance I would work out later tonight.  This is why I do it in the morning!

So, here we go, our fit test results compared to last week.  Minor improvements to mine, but my husband really rocked it this week.

Betty's Fit Test Result Comparison:
Switch kicks (2 kicks = 1 rep) - 63 --> 65 (+2)
Power jacks - 52 --> 53 (+1)
Power knees - 85 --> 115 (+30)
Power jumps - 43 --> 51 (+8)
Globe jumps (4 jumps = 1 rep) - 10 --> 12 (+2)
Suicide jumps - 19 --> 20 (+1)
Push up jacks - 22 --> 24 (+2)
Low plank oblique - 50  --> 56 (+6)
Mr.'s Fit Test Result Comparison:
Switch kicks - 52 --> 65 (+7)
Power jacks - 43 --> 59 (+16)
Power knees - 62 --> 91 (+29)
Power jumps - 26 --> 36 (+10)
Globe jumps - 6 --> 9 (+3)
Suicide jumps - 5 --> 16 (+11)
Push up jacks - 18 --> 23 (+5)
Low plank oblique 30 --> 49 (+19)
As you can see, my man really improved in just 2 weeks (and power jacks better than me, grrrr).  Very proud of him for sticking with it and only missing one workout so far.  Seeing how fast he's improving has really given me a kick in the pants to step it up too!  I cannot be outdone, no way, not by a hair dresser!!  :)  Just kidding, he knows I love him dearly, but seriously, my competitive nature will NOT let me fall behind anyone.
What gets you guys motivated?


  1. Great results girl!!! Don't worry... You still kicked his ass!!! Lol

  2. LOL - and we know that's all that really counts!

  3. I can't even remember when is the last time i did my workout. haha.... But I do some simple floor execise before going to bed. I think I still prefer to do the PS dancing execise. haha... Well, enjoy your day.
    Cheers, Kristy

  4. Anything is better than nothing Kristy! :) Dancing is fun but I'm so uncoordinated that I can only do that alone. LOL

  5. YOU got me motivated!

    I have just finished the 30-Day Shred and my 8th week of consistent exercise (5–6 days a week)

    Lost 1.5 lbs. and 3.25" on the Shred... but most of that was from the places that I wanted to keep. ;-)

    Still... I feel more fit and toned and that is the goal.

    And on an odd note... I tend to be intrigued by fitness DVDs with numbers in their titles. (30-Day Shred... 3-2-1 Workout...) I wonder why that is... maybe that the number feels like the exercise is *do-able*... anyway— I said it was odd.

    Thanks again for the inspiration. I really enjoy reading about your journey and your recipes. You did great on your latest fit test! Keep going.

  6. Awww, thanks Melissa. That is so super nice to hear. :)

    And congrats on your progress. That is so awesome. Unfortunately, we loose the inches in the fun zones before anywhere else. Seemingly, the waist and belly are last. Poo!

    And ya know, I hear ya on the numbers thing. I think to me it kind of indicates that there will be an end to the program, some kind of point where I will be able to see some measureable results. Or, maybe i'm just odd too.

    I'm glad to have you reading and enjoying. Hope to hear what you move on to next. Hey, P90X has numbers!! LOL And you could so do it!

  7. Nice improvements on the Fit Test. I can't wait to do mine, hopefully by Monday. I too am motivated by my dear hubby and he is gracious enough to do the programs with me too... I say that we are lucky ladies ;)

    Make it a great day!

  8. Thanks Gaspegirl. So nice that your husband is by your side in this. We are a lucky bunch. The fit test is a real eye opener too! LOL Hope your DVDs come quickly.
