Day 4 of the Insanity Asylum workout program is all squared away and it was a doozy. This one was called the “Vertical Plyo” workout. Just from looking at the title of it I knew this was going to be a hard workout for me. My knee does not do so well with all of the jumping and that’s usually what Shaun T specializes in. So I put on the knee brace and got to work. I really enjoy using the jump rope and agility ladder but I have a limited space to workout in so it makes it kind of a pain in the butt to do these workouts. Its like I cant get any momentum going because I might hit the TV or hit the lamp thats behind me. The cold and rainy Michigan spring we have been having has limited me to staying inside. I kept having to pause the dvd to switch things around. Any move Shaun T thought of that used the agility ladder destroyed me. The “Speed Skaters” and “Reverse Jumps” in and out of the boxes tested my knee and cardio.
With it being my first time doing the Vertical Plyo workout I knew it was going to be a little rough on my knee. I’m hoping my knee is a little stronger the next time I do this Insanity Asylum workout.
