Day 1 – Asylum Hybrid – Fit Test and Relief

Looks like I’m back and committed to the Asylum and will be doing workouts from both Volumes 1and 2, at least for the first 30 days. I’m currently at 170 pounds and want to drop down to 160 in 30 days. I know it’s going to be tough and I’m going to sacrifice a lot. I may have to add an extra run here and there to reach a caloric deficit but it’s not impossible. I already know how to eat clean and I’m disciplined to commit to a workout program until completion.

This time around I will be doing pull ups instead of bent over rows or lat push ups. I’ve bought and built a pull up station and parked it in the garage aka Pure Savagery. I’ve cleaned up the garage but it’s still has a low light, concrete, no frills eastern communistic vibe.

Here’s my numbers for the fit test. Looking to double my pull ups an the end of 30 days.

Agility Heisman: 13
In&Out Abs Progression: 25
Pull Ups: [b]10[/b]
Mountain Climber Switch Kicks: 90
Agility Shoulder Taps: 4.5
X Jumps: 30
Moving Push Ups: 3.5
Agility Lateral Shuffle: 13.5
Agility Bear Crawls: 8

Let’s crush em!


Day 30 – Fit Test – Insanity The Asylum COMPLETED

14 Apr


My goal 30 days ago was to lose 10 pounds while doing Asylum. I didn’t succeed but I did come close and lost 8.8 pounds. I even did the fit test in a fasted state, ran a 5k and did some jump roping drills do get close to 10 pounds. But the needle stopped 1.2 pounds short of my goal. On the bright side, I lost an average of 2.2 pounds per week and improved my score in all but one exercises on the fit test. I haven’t weighed this low since Thanksgiving 2013. Bravo!

I wanted to post my naked picture to show that my struggle is real and I’m a work in progress. I am most pleased with how much my diet has improved tremendously. I believe a healthy lifestyle is 80% diet, 15% mental and 5% physical. Some days I worked out in a fasted state, drank veggie and fruit smoothies all day and maintained a 70% paleo diet. I haven’t had pizza in a month and limited myself to 5 beers the last 30 days. I never skipped a workout even though there were days that I wanted to.

I feel like my work is just starting. I will take a week off to recover before starting Asylum Volume 2 and want to drop another 10 pounds in the next 30 days.

Enter the Asylum

16 Mar


Hello, I’ve always wanted to try the Asylum workout ever since I finished my first round of Insanity 2 years ago. Over Thanksgiving I picked up Asylum on sale and was holding out until I got a free standing pull up station but right now it’s not in the budget. Well I can’t wait any longer and my first day is tomorrow having completed the fit test today.

The most weight I’ve lost while on Insanity was 8 pounds (I’ve done 2 rounds) because I wasn’t on top of my diet. I would do great during the week but horrible on the weekends. This time I know the deal. I’ve got a lot of winter weight to get rid of and can’t wait to see how much comes off.

Current Stats:
Age: 36
Height: 5’6″
Weight: 190.2 lb
Body Fat: 22.4%

Chest: 42″
