Insanity Max 30 Day 25 Tabata Strength

Well, history did not repeat itself. I maxed out at 20:12. Those damn V push-ups get me every time! Still, I made it two-thirds of the way through the workout before I had to take a break. That says something, although to be honest I did take several breaks in succession once I finally maxed out. Again, that’s because they do a SERIES of V push-ups in a row. It is brutal, but I pushed through it the best I could.

I just realized I am a mere five days away from being halfway through this routine. When I first started, I didn’t see myself EVER making it through. P90 was too easy, and I thought Max 30 was going to be too hard. Yet here I am, still standing and in better health than I’ve been in for a long time. Notice I didn’t say I am in better SHAPE. That’s because my gut looks the same to me.

The gut has to do with the way I am eating. While I don’t go overboard with bad food, I know I could eat better. My plan is to start tracking what I eat in a food journal, then looking back each week and seeing where I strayed from healthy food.

One thing that is definitely going to make a difference: between my workout and going to wing chun class, I am going to start having my Shakeology again. This will help with the cravings I get in the evenings. And if I am hungry when I come back…well, I will have another!


About Steve Grogan

I am 40 years old, divorced, and a father of four kids. I am a practitioner of a self-defense system called wing chun kung fu. My other hobbies include writing, playing guitar, reading, watching movies, and listening to music. Recently I have gotten back into fitness, and this time I am DETERMINED to get the washboard abs...whether my metabolism will cooperate with me or not! The purpose of this blog is to write not only about my hobbies, but also about whatever crosses my mind, whether it is something I don't understand or something that aggravates me. So join me as I indulge my tendency to think too much about topics that don't usually cross anyone else's mind!
