Insanity Day 25 – Cardio Recovery

Cardio Recovery, the odd combination of rest and Mission Impossible. This was my last Cardio Recovery until I do Insanity again. Two more workouts and it’s on to recovery week.

Some of the Plank moves are still beyond me to complete in full, as my upper body strength has improved but quite enough, and the balance exercises are my true weak point. Not that I have bad balance — it is clearly a strength issue. I’ve also noticed that cheating on the balance moves makes it very hard to improve. When I cheat, my true balance is off, so I don’t find my true resting point. But if I don’t cheat on some of the exercises, I hold it for 2 seconds, reset, then 3 seconds, reset, then 1 second, reset. But maybe that is better than holding it for 20-30 seconds while resting my hand or fingertips on the wall. I understand there is a fair amount of balance work next week (the workout is called Core Cardio and Balance after all), so maybe I can improve then.

Disclosure: I am a Beachbody Coach. I became a coach because I love the programs and the Shakeology product. I figured since I’m blogging my own experience anyway, and if helps someone decide to try to make the same change for the better, then I might as well earn a commission. The Beachbody links in this post and in the rest of the site will take you to the Beachbody store, where I will get credit for the sale at no extra cost to you. In fact, by buying from me instead of direct from Beachbody without a coach’s portal, you usually get a bonus DVD. If you purchase a Beachbody program, chances are someone is getting a commission. If you valued this post or the other information and articles I created, I would very much appreciate you buying the program through me! Also, any Amazon links you see also generate commissions, again at no cost to you. Thanks for any purchases you make.
