The bosu' is always right

Watch your fat melt away as you sweat it out and get an intense muscle burn with a second in the two-part series of Insanity Workout.

These exercises can be performed after two weeks of the first set of the Insanity training workout that we showed last week. In the first level, we focused on core and cardio and in the second level, we will be looking at core, cardio and resistant training along with external resistance with bosu-ball and medicine-ball. Make sure you do proper warm-ups along with dynamic stretches and cool down with passive stretches to bring back your heart rate to normalcy. These workouts can be performed for about 50 minutes to an hour. You have to perform these exercises till you are completely exhausted and then move on to the next exercise. Do these continuously for three minutes and rest for 30 seconds. These circuits can be performed for as many sets as possible.
