Insanity Pure Cardio & Cardio Abs

How are these workouts supposed to work out together?

Upon completing Pure Cardio, do I immediately jump into Cardio Abs?

If so, do I do Cardio Abs from the warm up although I just finished stretching from Pure Cardio?

I'm a bit confused because they are 2 separate workouts.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know if you're supposed to separate them or not. I've heard a lot of people are doing them at a different time in the same day. I just did mine today, and I went right into Cardio Abs after Pure Cardio. It worked out fine for me. I thought why not? I'm already way past warmed up. I say do what works well for you. It wouldn't work well for me to split them up. My two cents emoticon

I did Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs together for the first time today, and I was wondering the same thing. I ended up doing them back to back, and it was hard! Of course, that's the point, isn't it? I wonder if it would change anything if I did the Cardio Abs before Pure Cardio? So you're fresh for the ab workout, and then really pushed hard to finish the cardio strong!

i'm in the middle of week 2 and i see the pure cardio/cardio abs day coming up for the first time on saturday. i previewed the cardio abs and was surprised to see another warm-up! as you know, in p90 you dove right into ab ripper after the day's workout. i'm planning on skipping the warm-up and diving right into cardio abs after the pure cardio since, as brande said, i'm "way past warmed up"! what do you think about that idea? thanks for your advice!

I do them back to back. The warm up (if you can call it that) is very, VERY brief and contains a lot of excellent core work, so I do the entire routine every time.

After doing Cardio Abs immediately following my Pure Cardio workout I have decided to separate the two workouts. I believe I will get more out of it if I do Cardio abs in the morning before I start my day, 16 minutes shouldn't hurt my a.m. timeline to bad plus maybe it will help me start my day off. I will follow up in a couple of weeks.

I normally take 5-10 minutes between the two but do them at the "same time"

for month two, I would suggest drinking your recovery formula between the two.

I am in month 2 of insanity (2nd Round) and have done Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs several ways.

1) Pure Cardio then straight to Cardio Abs
2) Cardio Abs in the morning, Pure Cardio at night
3) Cardio Abs then straight into Pure Cardio


I found that for myself, It works best to do Cardio Abs first then jump right into Pure cardio. I do the same in month 2 with Cardio Abs and Max Cardio. This works for me so, I would recommend what works best for you.

Also, I do not skip the extra warm-up. What's it going to hurt. Only takes a couple of extra minutes and increases your calorie burn.

I would skip the cool down on pure cardio but do the warm up on cardio abs it is a lot of jumping and you have a lot of ab work there but I felt that they should have two programs on it one that went right into cardio abs if you are going to do them at the same time and one that just did pure cardio. Just my thoughts!
Keep pushing play all and make your goals!

This may be a silly question... but I'm just starting week 2 of Insanity, is there a pure cardio disc? I see it as a day (tomorrow!) on my calendar but don't see a disc?

Can someone clear this up for me please....

Thx and Merry Christmas fitness friends!
