I’ve been wanting to do the FocusT25 workout from a very long time & i finally decided to start doing it from today.
Being petite – i’m 4’11” and weigh 110 lbs i burned 210 calories in this workout. But a taller person & someone who has a lot of weight to lose can easily burn 300 calories in 25 mins. I’m struggling to lose my last 10 lbs.
In fact i don’t care about how many calories i burnt, i worked my thighs, my quads and calves and it felt great. I will definitely build some definition there!
About the workout:
It is non stop. No breaks unlike insanity!! Seriously i much prefer doing Insanity. I love it !! Anyway you don’t get any water breaks.
There are two burn out rounds where you go all out, full speed & push yourself. Don’t stop during burn outs. First burnout is after 10 mins into the workout. Second burnout at 20 min mark with 5 mins left for the workout to finish. Each burn out lasts 2 mins.
There is a cool down stretch at the end of the workout which is a blessing!! I did do a bit of stretching before hitting play.
This is what the name says: its all cardio. You do variations of jumping jacks, squats & lunges. Oh the lunges and squat hurt so bad. My thighs were on fire! And for the jacks, i was feeling it in my calves.
During the jumping lunges i did have some balance issues. But i’m sure i’l get better next time. I did change to tanya’s way of doing it when my calves were hurting or when i really had to slow it down. But its all work in progress! I’l get there.
Tanya does all the modified moves. I was also doing it at my own pace, hoping by the end of the month i’l be able to do it at their pace.
I won’t get into the details of each & every move. All and all it was a good workout, a good change! And hoping for some inch’s gone… 🙂
And as Shaun T says – Peace out !!
