Insanity Workout Review: Pure Cardio & Cardio Abs
Insanity Workout DVD #5
Insanity Calendar: Day 22
Insanity Workout Overview
I have never been a huge fan of doing cardio workouts. Ironically that is the reason I began doing Insanity in the first place.
Doing cardio workouts is a necessity for developing a lean and muscular body. With the insanity Max interval training I now possess a lot of the best cardio workouts over created. All I need to do is use them.
Pure cardio is a non-repeat workout, meaning you all and do each exercise one time and then you move on to the next one. This seems to make the workout flow better and and fester.
From there we go on to cardio abs. After pure cardio it is nice to be able to sit down. The last thing about cardio abs is that there are no crunches.
The warm up exercises are the standard set, consisting of Jog, Jumping Jacks, Hesimans (leaping from side to side), 123 Heismans (in which you throw in some stutter steps between each high knee), Butt Kicks, High Knees (simply jogging in place and bringing your knees as high as you can) and Mummy Kicks.

Uses accompanying nutrition program: No
I absolutely loved these DVDs. They totally kicked my butt… in a good way. I was in pretty good shape before doing these DVDs but they totally helped me take my fitness to the next level. Not only do I feel better, but they helped me improve my running as well. Now when I do a 10km run it feels like a piece of cake. I did not follow the nutrition plan ONLY because I already eat the way recommended (5-6 small meals a day of clean food). I will say, a six-pack is made in the kitchen – if you don’t eat right, your body will not get the results you want. However, if you eat right and follow the program, be prepared to look and feel fabulous!
Additional Programs: Chalean Extreme, P90X
Pros: Very effective
Cons: be careful not to overtrain with these
Insanity Cool Down and Stretch
Series of lunges, hip openers, back stretches, hamstring stretches, breathing exercises and quad stretch.
Pure cardio once again kicked my butt. As I mentioned earlier I don’t like doing cardio workouts. So I especially dislike pure cardio. However on day 22 it is getting easier. The key is for me to keep digging deeper.
Cardio abs is my favorite. After the brutal intensity of pure cardio it is nice to get on the floor and do simple strength training.
