Insanity Asylum POWER LEGS Workout with Sand Bag and Weight Vest

This Asylum Power Legs Workout is part of the Insanity Asylum Volume 2 Elite Series. The original workout uses dumbbells with no weight vest. I am training for a couple OCR Championship Races, so I decided to kick it up a notch and add an even more extreme level of difficulty.

This workout is geared more towards advanced fitness levels such as athletes who play football, soccer, basketball, track, running, and even obstacle course racing. Insanity Asylum workouts are versatile as long as you have the equipment. You can do these workouts at home, gym, or even outdoors. Insanity Asylum Workout Sheets are available. It's always recommended to watch the videos first so that you can fully understand the movements, this will ensure that you are doing the right exercise with proper form.
