insanity cardio fit test switch kicks
12/11/12 2:24 PM
Hey guys Im restarting Insanity tommrow.

I had to restart since I stopped doing it for like 4 days due to moving and I havent passed my first week so a restart was the way to go for me

Anyways my question is:

In the fit test there is a move called Switch Kicks, now how high should my foot be in a switch kick for it to count?


Thanks

Congratulations on starting Insanity.

There isn't a set height sort to speak and depending on your fit level your legs should form about a 90 degree angle while doing the kicks. You can use Chris and Tania's form as a great example.

You'll see throughout the videos that form is the most important and never to sacrifice form.

So my foot should be up to my hip or to my navel?

I never really thought about the height of my switch kicks. To me the focus was on doing the switch in the air. In other words, not doing slow switch kicks by putting the up leg all the way down before lifting the other leg. To me it was SO hard to do this that the height of the kick seemed like a minor issue. In addition, to do the switch in the air, you have to put some force into the switch, which in turn tends to bring the leg pretty high up anyway.
