Many people are familiar with INSANITY, but some folks don’t know yet there is follow up workout called “INSANITY THE ASYLUM“, and one of the workouts in there is one we did at our Fit Club last night called “BACK TO CORE“.
Back to Core is a approximately a 45 minute workout to “work body parts we often overlook” as quoted from the Asylum guide, “You’ll work the back of your body, including your glutes, hamstrings, calves, core and back.”
The workout starts off with different types of jumping jacks for 3 minutes, then a stretch and then go through the set of jumping jacks again and then the “real workout” starts.
The exercises in here are not the usual INSANITY type exercises, but ones made to strengthen the back, core, and legs so needless to say I’m quite sore today, in the hamstrings and calves especially.
Though you’re not doing all the high intense type movements, with some of the movements it almost reminds me of yoga in the way you hold some stances for a minute or two.
By the end of the workout the group had quite a sweat on, and the recovery formula was a welcome drink.
The video below will give you an idea of what to expect from the rest of the Asylum workouts.
Though is doesn’t show Back to Core on there, trust me, it’s a challenge.
The ASYLUM is a 30 day program instead of 60 day like Insanity, and this workout being from Volume 1. Before the end of the year Volume 2 should be released.
Like some other Beachbody programs this one too is considered a “graduate” program, meant for people that have done some type of exercise. Someone who hasn’t done anything in awhile this workout may be to difficult since it is not a beginning workout and to avoid injury should consider one of the less intense workouts to start with, then graduate to this.
