Ski Abs and In N Out Abs, why do you hate me so?
I have pretty muched owned Plyometric Cardio Circuit for this entire round of Insanity. Pretty much because except for Ski Abs and In N Out Abs I have not really needed to take a rest during any part of this workout. But I have not seemed to be able to overcome the insanity of Ski Abs. This exercise is one that works out almost your entire body. It definitely targets your abs and obliques, but it doesn’t stop there.
It works your shoulders, your chest, your quads, your glutes and to a lesser extent, your back. I’m really not sure which of these areas I am weakest in, but since I know I am not strong in all of them I’m certain that a few of these areas are failing me when it comes time to get Ski Abs done. And since In N Out Abs are almost the same workout, save for the in and out motion of the “leg pull up” as opposed to the side to side AND in and out motion of the “leg pull up” in Ski Abs, it pretty much goes without saying that whatever challenges me about Ski Abs will likewise challenge me about In N Out Abs.
So today was like all the rest up to now: I breezed through the warm ups, nailed the first circuit and kicked butt on the first two exercises of the second circuit. But come time to hit the floor for Ski Abs, I die out. And I’m not seeing any sign of improvement in my stamina or ability to overcome the challenge of this exercise.
All of this is to day that I have one more day to try to finish this workout entirely without rest. And as much as I want it, being realistic with myself means I have to come to grips with the notion that I might not be able to hit that goal. We’ll see in a couple of days when I hit this one again. Until then, I will be trying to identify which parts of my body I need to target so I don’t get schooled in my floor abdominal work anymore.
