P90X2-Asylum Hybrid

I just wanted to give a quick update on my workout schedule. Going into the holidays, I was feeling a bit in a rut with my workout schedule. I was doing P90X2 or Insanity daily and just wasn’t feeling it.

I decided after the new year to jump back into a P90X2-Asylum hybrid schedule. So far, about three weeks into it I am loving it. I had forgotten how much “harder” the Asylum is that traditional Insanity. By harder, I mean just that I am far more tired, and burn more calories during a typical Asylum workout than an Insanity one.

My typical week looks like

Monday- X2 Chest Back and Balance (or Chest Shoulders and Tris)
Tuesday- Asylum Speed and Agility
Wednesday- X2 Shoulders and Arms (or V-Sculpt)
Thursday- Asylum Vertical Plyo
Friday- Asylum Strength
Saturday- X2 Yoga
Sunday- Rest

For a rest week, I will do something like:

Monday- X2 Core
Tuesday- Asylum Relief
Wednesday- X2 Total Body
Thursday- Asylum Back to Core
Friday- X2- Balance and Power
Saturday X2 Yoga

I also recently switched over to the new Chocolate Shakeology formula, and am loving the change. I am not quite sure yet what I am going to do for a workout schedule once this round is over. I am thinking maybe Body Beast/Insanity, but we will see.

Insanity: The Asylum Vol. 2

Well, I know what I am doing when I am done with Body Beast at the end of October.

Insanity: The Asylum Vol. 2 is now available. I never completed a full month of The Asylum Vol. 1, but I did do P90X2/Asylum Hybrid over the summer that I had really great results with.

After three months of Body Beast, where the focus has been on building muscle, I am really excited to get back to some hardcore cardio.

I will definitely be ordering this. You cannot beat the price either. At $59.85 ($44.89 for coaches, love that Coach discount!!) you cannot beat the price for an elite training program, which Volume 2 is guaranteed to be.

 

Right now, the Asylum Vol. 2 is only available through the Team Beachbody store, which you can access through the shopping cart link on right side of this page or by going HERE. If you do not have the equipment that was used in Vol. 1, you can get it HERE. If you have any questions about Asylum Vol 1, or Vol 2, please feel free to ask.

We will definitely be starting up a Facebook group of people doing this together. There really is nothing like the support and motivation you can get from joining a group of like-minded crazies doing one of these at-home programs. If there have been two keys to my success with at-home workouts, the first has been Shakeology (an update is coming in this department) and the support and motivation I have gotten from my Facebook groups.

This has me very excited to finish up with Body Beast.

According to the Volume 2 site:

The Asylum Volume 2 workout program comes with 7 workouts on 6 DVD’s.  Below are the details =

Body Beast- Home Stretch

I am in the Beast Phase of Body Beast, which means I can almost see the finish line. I am eager to finish the program for a number of reasons.

First, I am excited to see the changes my body has undergone from this program. I know for an absolute fact that I am bigger and stronger thanks to this program. I am lifting more weight now that I was in week 1, and have seen gains in literally every routine.

Second, I am excited to start something new. Insanity: The Asylum Vol. 2 will be released soon, and I am looking forward to giving it a shot. I will have full Body Beast before and after results up at the end of October.

Anyone looking to join a group of people killing it with Asylum Vol. 2, send me an email (terrancegilmore@gmail.com) or message me on Facebook. We have a dedicated group of workout nuts who are going to be crushing Asylum 2 together. There is nothing like the support and motivation of tackling an at-home workout with a group of people online.

Body Beast has been good, but I am ready for something new. Once again, this is why I love Beachbody. The diversity in programs that are available means I never get bored with what I am doing.

And just a quick programming update. I will have a full Shakeology update up soon, along with available samples. I started a new job last week (more on this later as well) and things have been a bit crazy. During all of this professional transition, the one thing that has been consistent has been my diet and exercise.
