R6 I:A D18 – If You’re Bored Then You’re Boring (RKC To The Rescue)

If you’re bored then you’re boring – Harvey Danger, Flagpole Sitta

My high hopes for IA are not being met. I am coming to the realization that it’s not what I needed and certainly not what I expected. So instead of following the schedule I am patching together IA, RKC and even P90X and Olympic Style lifts to stave off the boredom.

I have realized why the Insanity Asylum program is only 30 days, because it’s boring. That’s right, I said it. You really only have 3 workouts that you can do that are of any functional use on a repetitive basis, I don’t count Game Day because it is more of a gimmick than a workout. Although it is a tough workout I don’t think is has value as a weekly repetitive workout. So left with a choice of 3 workouts, how could you possible go to 90 days? So I think that I am already about to jump ship on Round 6 which was planned to be 30 days and go into the Insanity Asylum and P90X hybrid. They outline the schedule as follows (according to online sources which I will check this evening):

Weeks 1-3

  • Monday- Chest & Back, Ab Ripper X
  • Tuesday- Plyometric Cardio Circuit
  • Wednesday- Shoulders & Arms, Ab Ripper X
  • Thursday- Pure Cardio
  • Friday- Legs & Back, Ab Ripper X
  • Saturday- Cardio Power & Resistance
  • Sunday- Rest, Yoga, or Stretch

Week 4– Recovery Week

  • Monday- Cardio Recovery
  • Tuesday- Core Synergistics
  • Wednesday- Yoga X
  • Thursday- Core Cardio & Balance
  • Friday- Kenpo X
  • Saturday- Stretch X
  • Sunday- Rest

Weeks 5-8

  • Monday- Chest, Shoulders, & Tris, Cardio Abs
  • Tuesday- Max Interval Plyo
  • Wednesday- Back & Biceps, Cardio Abs
  • Thursday- Max Interval Circuit
  • Friday- Legs & Back, Cardio Abs
  • Saturday- Max Recovery
  • Sunday- Rest, Yoga, or Stretch

Week 9– Recovery Week (Same as above)

Weeks 10-12

  • Monday- Chest & Back, Ab Ripper X
  • Tuesday- Max Cardio Conditioning
  • Wednesday- Shoulders & Arms, Cardio Abs
  • Thursday- Max Interval Circuit
  • Friday- Legs & Back, Ab Ripper X
  • Saturday- Max Recovery
  • Sunday- Rest, Yoga, or Stretch

Week 13– Recovery Week (Same as above)

Much as I hate the recovery week at the end, I am signed up to do Warrior Dash in 5 weeks so I think maybe a week to finish IA and then 4 weeks of hybrid will get me within my fitness goal. Add to that some RKC which I just can’t live without and some running (ugh) then I should be as ready as possible…
