Cardio Resistance Insanity

This is a [Other] pattern from (pattern 17082)

I've paired up some of the cardio exercises that appear in Shaun T's Insanity series exercise DVD's with some resistance exercises for an awesome sweaty workout!

Begin doing the cardio exercises (all 7) as a warm-up. (I use the Rate of Perceived Exertion scale from 1-10 with 10 being Very Intense). Increase intensity with cardio segments 2 & 3

(30 seconds each as Warm-up I- 60%- RPE 4-5)

Cardio Segment I


Power jacks (jump out, pushing through your heels and toes, separating your legs straight out to the side, wider than shoulder length, with your knees slightly bent. Be sure your knees are pointed straight directly over your toes. Swing your arms up and out to the side and over your head as you jump, clapping your hands over your head. Bring your legs back together into a squat position and bring your hands back down at your knees as you squat.)

Log jumps (jump to the right with right leg as if jumping over log and tap left foot to right - repeat jumping over log to the left with left leg tapping right foot to left.)
