No problem Kelly ,
Speed and Agility 45 minutes, this workout takes a lot of coordination, this DVD is more like an Insanity workout than any of the other DVDs. Its a great cardio DVD and unlike Insanity, they go STRAIGHT through for 45 minutes, hardcore with only MINOR breaks. Its a great cardio workout and it takes your heart rate up there...even the warmup is straight to the point and high energy. In this workout you use the agility ladder and a speed jump rope (included with your order)
Vertical Plyo-40minutes, I have only done this workout once so far, I do it again tomorrow and will give you an update, its another "Insanity" like workout, I just cant remember all that's used and all that entails, I will be sure to update as soon as I finish tomorrow
Strength-50 minutes, this is one of my FAVORITE workouts, its an intense full body toning workout that you feel almost IMMEDIATELY. I have done it both with weights and a resistance band, the restsance bands work great but I find the weights make it a little more challenging. Usually when I lifted weights at the I went from machine to machine without a good heart rate acceleration. This workout combines light cardio with the weights so I get the best of both worlds! This is hands down one of my faves, its easier to drop LBS if you combine strength training and cardio, I am glad that weights have been incorporated into the Asylum,
Game Day-60 minutes, one of the most intense cardio workouts that I have done, even more than Insanity. 60 STRAIGHT minutes of Sports specific drills, this workout made me burn 700+ calories, man it was difficult! But I love the fact that I know I am going to have to push harder to complete this one and it will make stronger and incinerate body fat along with it!
Back to Core- 45 Minutes, this might not sound or appear to be a tough workout, but this is HARD, my back burns, body aches while doing it as well as after! I know its making my back stronger and you dont even use weights for this workout, just a lot of pushing through the pain through various instructed poses, and let me tell you....the next day....you FEEL it
Relief-25 Minutes, this is a QUICK to the point light stretching DVD, not yoga by any means, just stretching your muscles to give them and your body a break until the next workout. I appreciate the fact that its only 25 minutes as my attention span doesnt like anything really slow and/or long.
Overtime- 15 minutes I have yet to do this workout, I hear its a supplemental DVD to Game day that you pop in after to see if you have anything left to give....the first time I didnt, and it wasnt part of the schedule, it is the next go around....so we will see how this one goes.
And I think that's all of them. So yes, it IS like a P90x/Insanity combo, glad i did them after the Insanity, I wouldnt start with them, Insanity DEFINITELY prepares you for all the cardio.
I am by no means an athlete! I just admire/desire their bodies and I know you have to do what they do to get what they've got (workout wise). Hope this helps.

I'd previously though the asylum was more geared to pro athletes, so I'm glad to read your posts and am thinking about adding that to my spring workout regime.
thanks for any advice/thougts!
