Two weeks into this Insanity bit, and tonight’s task was taking the program’s fit test for the second time. Now, fitness tests are nothing new for me; I have to take one every six months in the Navy. But let’s face it, the Navy PRT is pretty easy. 2 minutes of sit-ups, 2 minutes of pushups, and a 1.5 mile run. You would have to TRY to not pass it. But yet, somehow, I know of people who have failed the dang thing, multiple times.
Anyway, rolling into the fit test on Day 1, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, but I also wasn’t too terribly intimidated by it. And yeah, the exercises are different than what I’d been used too, but it was not too bad. I had a harder time with some of the exercises than I thought, and an easier time on others. You know, the usual.
Tonight, knowing what to expect, and with my previous scores in hand, I wasn’t nervous per say but I was mindful of the desire/need to show progress, if only to myself. So how’d it go, you ask?
So yeah, showing some improvement. The only areas that didn’t go up were the Globe Jumps and Power Knees. Globe Jumps – I just hate them and I think they’re a little silly, and I suck at jumping. But still, that should have gone better. And the Power Knees…I think the reason for that is I did it with my right leg for the first test, and the left for this one. Dumb – should have kept it consistent and my left is my weak side. But it is what it is.
So already seeing some good effects from the program. Hard to argue with raw numbers, eh? Although amusingly enough, you wouldn’t know there’d been improvement from looking at the scale. *shrug* Oh well, no doubt that will come.
Ok, time to hit the rack.
