Insanity at The Arena

YHC was recently talking about workouts with Headgear and how once upon a time we both did the Insanity workout.  That got me to thinking that I should put together a workout that featured the “best of” exercises from Insanity.  That said, YHC dusted off his DVD player, dug up the DVDs, and selected some of the “best” exercises from the program for an Arena beatdown.  Six brave souls fought the fartsack, stayed dry, and got better thanks to Shaun T.  With YHC’s favorite band of all time as a backdrop, a little Tabata style work, some Mary, and a few yoga stretches completed the session.  Playlist below.

Conditions:  39 degrees with a light mist.  Could not have been better.
