Insanity Cardio Recovery Review
July 2, 2012 18 Comments
Insanity cardio recovery to say the least uses the word recovery lightly. While this workout may not in comparison be a grueling about to pass out workout, it is a good workout none the less. It is a nice little break from all of the intense cardio movements from the prior workouts. None the less it still is a workout not to be taken for granted. I want to give you a quick review of what you can expect from this workout and show you that even Insanity cardio recovery still will make you dig deep (as Shaun T would say haha).
Insanity Cardio Recovery – But I’m Still Drenched In Sweat!
That is right even in Insanity cardio recovery you still are going to be sweating your butt off! Like I said earlier don’t take this workout lightly and make sure you are well hydrated and rested. Also as a side note, this workout strangely enough made me test my willpower in a difference since than the program had before (more details later). This workout is certainly shorter in comparison to the others only lasting about 35 min. It starts off with a good stretch and then jumps up into a series of yoga moves. After that your ready for a new kind of burn!
Insanity Cardio Recovery – The Deep Tissue Burn!
This is what I mentioned about having a new kind of willpower. You are not going to be out of breath with these exercises, but the deep tissue burn you will experience will force yourself into a new state of mind! There is going to be some moves where you may have to come out of, but the point is to push through the best you can while still maintaining good form!
Insanity Cardio Recovery – The Moves of the Recovery!
The following moves are what you have to look forward to for your Insanity cardio recovery!
1.Squats – these are to be slow and controlled as Shaun T will show you. You should feel the burn by the end of these.
2. Squat Pulse/Hold – after doing a good many squats in a slow and controlled form you will sit down in a squat and pulse for about 30 seconds or so and then hold the squat for about 15 seconds or so. You should feel the BURN and it should really push you to stay down, if not then you are not low enough!
3.Lunges - these will also be slow and with good form. Make sure you keep the knee over the ankle for the front leg and the the hip over the knee for the back leg.
4.Lunge Pulses/Hold – after the lunges you will then jump right into doing pulses after about a 15 second hold.
……..You will then repeat this same sequence, but at a little bit of a faster pace this time.
*Insanity Cardio Recovery Tip – be sure you are keeping good form and doing the best you can do. Keep your core tight for all exercises.
5. Plie Yoga Stretch – this is essentially a squat with your feet pointing outwards. Reach your hand down to one side and hold the stretch. Switch sides and repeat.
6. Quad Strengtheners – Start down on your hands and knees. Lift your knees about 5 inches off the floor and extend the leg for 16 glute pulses. Switch sides and repeat.
7.Oblique Work -Same positioning as the previous exercise except instead of pulsing up and down with the leg you bring the knee to the should to work the oblique.
These are the more intense moves in Insanity cardio recovery. The rest of the series of moves are some stretches to help increase your flexibility and more or less bring everything full circle. Be sure to drink your P90X Results and Recovery Formula to boost the recovery process
