    Happy Monday! Well done on your improvements, and especially on your stayed-the-sames. That meant you gave it your all last time, and probably you're doing them with better form this time. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Day 36 part two: Max Interval Circuit. Done ๐Ÿ’ช
    Well omg ๐Ÿ˜ณ I have to admit that by the end of this circuit I could barely remember what I just did ๐Ÿคฃ so I had to rewind to review so I could post ๐Ÿ™ˆ
    This IS a workout, jeez! I was very focused on form as these are new moves to me. I took a lot of the moves slower and I modified a couple (detailed below).
    I'm really looking forward to my endurance getting better on this routine. A few specific moves that I'm looking forward to improving on in the circuits are:
    1st circuit: The floor work ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ski abs / jacks / in & outs / oblique. Wow ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
    2nd circuit: Hooks and jumps - I did power jumps instead of these tuck jumps, just because I have been doing power jumps (wider legs) and thought there was less chance of injury. I'm sure as I get stronger I'll move onto tuck jumps but for now I'm playing safe.
    3rd circuit: Getting quicker at side suicide jumps - I took this move really slowly. And finally the full body drills ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
    Well first day of Max done ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ and my thoughts immediately move onto 'what will tomorrow bring' ๐Ÿคฃ

    Day 38: Max Cardio Conditioning. Done ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ’ช
    Wow this was tough! I did every move though (albeit not a pace with every one else ๐Ÿ™ˆ) and only the floor work (as per) got the better of me ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜–I really enjoy the swinging jumping moves - diamond jumps, those leg swing jump moves ๐Ÿคฃ it's nice to have momentum help!
    I'm looking forward to the recovery workout tomorrow, but I have a suspicion that Max recovery may not be as nice as the month one recovery routine ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚ time will tell!

    Day 39: Max Recovery. Done ๐Ÿ’ช
    Oh this is the first routine Ive felt disappointed and frustrated ๐Ÿ˜• I was really struggling to keep up (it was so quick moving through the first moves) and I was also really struggling do a lot of the floor work - trying to turn around in my head by thinking of the progress I can make on this one. Jeez those side holds ๐Ÿ˜ณ and so many push ups ๐Ÿ˜ต on the plus, I managed all of the leg and ab moves ๐Ÿ”ฅ
    Another day down ๐Ÿ‘ I have this one in my sights to do loads better next week!

    You've smashed so.many of the others, it's to be expected that occasionally you'll have an off day. Don't let it faze you. You'll ace it next time. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Day 40: Max Interval Circuit. Done ๐Ÿ’ช
    Omg I was an absolute mess after this earlier this morning ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘ hence the late post - I was running so late for work after trying to recover ๐Ÿ˜…
    I had a naughty night of eats last night so this mornings workout was powered by popcorn and profiteroles ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคค But I smashed it! I felt like I was able to push through so many of the circuits today ๐Ÿ’ช I think I was mindful of burning off last night indulgences - it's been a stressful week, it was nice to enjoy a couple of cravings and not feel guilty because I know I was back on it today ๐Ÿ’ฅ Day 40 done, wow! I think this circuit will be a favourite, I really enjoyed feeling bad as# on the punches and jumps ๐Ÿ˜‚ Soooo glad it's Friday and looking forward to getting a rest this weekend! Happy Friday everyone!

    Ha ha! Awesome! I've heard others say an overindulgence the previous night actually leads to killer workout results the next day!

    Hi @DrMamacitaMD2022 ๐Ÿ˜Š
    I would highly recommend the insanity program! I'll not lie, it is very tough and there are more days than not that I could see it far enough ๐Ÿคฃ but if you commit to pressing play even on 'those' days you'll reep the benefits! I feel so much fitter, healthier and happier.
    I have lost weight, but you have to concentrate on your deficits and be patient, it happens but more than weight loss, my body shape has changed - everything tightens, my tummy, arms, thighs have lost crazy inches. You'll not be disappointed if you are committed, eating as healthy as you can (I've had days where I've indulged but got back on it and not distroyed my hard work just because of one meal, snack or bad day) and just press play. Posting on MFP has been keeping me accountable and other members advice and comments have really spurred me on - thanks guys โค๏ธ Good luck with it and remember to dig deeper ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿค—

    Day 41: Max Interval Plyo. Done ๐Ÿ’ช
    Oh I was tired today BUT I pressed play! I gave my all and I targeted those dreaded level three drills ๐Ÿ˜ฌ My strategy was to think as I was doing the push ups 'I LOVE push ups' ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ™ˆ It worked! I managed all the first 16 sets and then ten of each of the second sets ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‘ I even managed more of the side push ups. A very successful workout (even without the profiteroles ๐Ÿคฃ) and I'm very glad I got it done! Have a great Saturday everyone ๐Ÿ˜Š
