FOCUS T25 - Alpha Cardio

Soooo... I loaned out 21 Day Fix to an eager participant.  According to my Half Marathon training schedule, it was two miles or cross training.

I chose death. 

Cross training.

I purchased T25 a week or so ago and have left the materials untouched.  I perused the schedule, the DVDs, and resistance band like it was a shrine.  I'm going to be honest... I was a little apprehensive to try another Shawn T video. 

He kicked my ass in Insanity.  I may have yelled out mercy.  I may have laid out on the floor drinking my own sweat.  I may want to give child birth instead of doing Insanity.

Before I get into details and thoughts throughout the video - let this be known, this one work out has made me happy I invested in the series.  It was challenging... part of me felt good Tanya was the modifier (she's the insane Asian chick in Insanity - not trying to be racist, but I don't know what she is).  She does a good job modifying but keeping up with the pace.  There were times I stopped and she was still squatting and hooting.  But really Shawn T, can you include people of all sizes in your videos?  Please?  Or what about that African American girl who fell to the floor during Insanity?  She was fun to watch too - I was happy to see she was human.

I will say this - and you're going to laugh if you ever work out to the cardio DVD - but there are schlongs flopping everywhere.  Perhaps I seek out humor when I am feeling the burn.  But, just watch.

Many of the moves are similar to a couple Insanity work outs I have done - no matter what, he makes them difficult and constant.  Thank goodness it is only 25 minutes.  You literally get NO rest.


Minute four came around and I was expecting a cool down - nope.  You murder yourself for 25 minutes trying to keep up with all the hopping, lunges, squats, and jumps.  For some of the jumping I had to do some modifying moves.

My calves are going to feel this in the morning - curse you Shawn T!

I'll be fitting in more of these work outs long with my half marathon training.  Oh yeah, I OFFICIALLY signed up for my first half marathon.  Any words of wisdom from anyone reading this would be greatly appreciated.  I'm hoping for no running trots, side stitches, or ankle pain... oh, yes...

And a cold beer after the run.

Here's so to being uncomfortable and in pain all for self satisfaction until June 21st.

Worth.  Every.  Minute.
