Insanity Asylum V2, X Trainer - World Cup Inspired Workout

It's the World Cup! And so while the best of the best in FUTBOL are killing it on the field, I felt like it would be fitting to do some athletic training at home while watching them battle it out! I decided to do Insanity Asylum X-Trainer which is part of the Volume 2 Elite Athlete Training Series.

I'm going to be honest, after watching a little bit of the World Cup recently, I think I may have to incorporate a game of soccer into my weekly workout routine, those guys are some amazing athletes! So without further ado, let's dig into my WOD:

As always, Shaun T has to kill us with a warm up that seems like it's just as beastly as the actual workout!

Warm up included:
- Agility X-Trainer Part 1
- Hop Kicks (jump rope)
- U Agility Hops
- Hop Kick Swing Jumps (jump rope)
- Agility T-180
- Plank Heisman Agility
- Hop Heisman Agility

Time for a little stretch, this is where I finally catch my breath and I am able to say a few words to Shaun T for telling me that it was just a warm up! =)

Then the workout begins! I'm just glad that I took my E&E yo! =) The main workout consisted of 5 rounds. I'm like, "man this is going to be fun!"
