INSANITY Max 30: Ab Attack
AND I’M BACK! I apologize for the delay in posts - my daughter and I have been sick with strep/flu/sinus infections. Yes, all three - for a week.
ANYWAYS, I decided to review INSANITY Max 30: Ab Attack since it was not AS demanding as the alternatives! :)
You can find my commentary video immediately following this workout here.
Total Time: 10 minutes Equipment: none (unless you want a mat)
You get right into this - so be ready - and be sitting in the C-sit position. AND YOU NEVER STAND UP during this workout. ;)
Floor Tuck Jumps - in the C-sit position, you bring your knees up and tap them with your hands and tap your heels back down. Repeat.
I won’t lie - I was about done after the first minute. Bahahahha.
Low Plank Side Punch - in the plank position, you punch left and right (while looking at your hand that is punching).
I love when Shaun T says you’re about done - then he says, ’I lied - you still got 15 seconds to go.’
I chuckled. HA YOU ARE SO FUNNY.
Knee Punch Extensions - start in the C-sit position, and then lay on the floor but keep the heels off the ground and extend your arms overhead. Repeat.
Shaun T thinks her ‘abs feel good’:
I think mine feel like this is horrible and sitting up the last time was like a balancing act.
Reciprocating Knee - in the plank position, alternate tapping your knees down.
Okay, okay, I got this.
Switch Kick Abs - on your back, kick heel straight up and punch the alternating arm - repeat the other side.
Okay, okay, these still suck.
One of my favorite quotes:
'I don’t care what kind of abs you got - FAT abs, TIGHT abs, maybe your abs aren’t even there yet….I’ll accept any time of abs that come into my gym’.
Plank Toe Taps - in the high plank position, you tap the opposite toe with your hand and then alternate.
Don’t. Fall. Over.
Ab Sprint - UGH! In the C-sit position, you alterate bringing your knees in (do not touch the ground) and 'sprinting’ your arms while keeping a 90 degree angle in your elbow.
Poor me. YOU GOT THIS.
Tricep Push-Up Extension - do a tricep pushup and then lay on your belly and extend your arms up and heels up. Repeat.
'Up Down Extend’.
And we’re flying!
Floor Ab Attack - in the C-sit position, keep your heels off the ground and extend the arms straight out with open hands.
Cynthia is crazy fast:
Drum 'V’ - oh yeah, this is where he loses everyone including myself. RIGHT AFTER THE LAST MOVE, straighten your legs out and shape your body into a 'v’ - drum (punch) on your abs.
THEN YOU ARE DONE. Like everyone else, I was flat on the ground:
There is not a cool down, but you get a reminder:
Thanks Shaun T.
My Final Thoughts:
Shaun T is right, 'sometimes Sarah likes to get out of control. But I’m gonna put her in control.' She is a bit nuts - but props to her! She must have drank a Red Bull before shooting this workout.
Here is your usual modifier (if not Scott):
Garmin Connect indicates that I burned around 86 calories - which is not really important because I was below my zone 1 almost the entire time. This is a core workout - not a high heart rate workout.
Remember, you can find my commentary video immediately following this workout here.
Overall, this is a 10 minute core workout that keeps you moving and your core burning with creative moves. Try it - it is only ten minutes!
