I’ve already reviewed Focus T25, but I’ve decided to take it to the next level by starting the program and completing the full challenge, like I did with Insanity. I think it is 60 days with the Alpha and Beta cycles, and then there is a Gamma cycle that is an additional package on its own that is probably another 30 days.
Like I mentioned before, I really enjoy the Focus T25 workouts, so this challenge when paired up with the stress and busyness of the holidays, makes it an ideal thing for me to tackle at the end of the year. One thing that is also can help me stay motivated is my brother and I have decided to help motivate each other to keep working out and eating right. He joined MyFitnessPal and we keep a spreadsheet of our workouts to see what each other is doing.
I did my first workout, which is just called Cardio 1.0, yesterday and my glutes are little sore, but overall I’m feeling good enough to tackle the second workout today (Note: I wrote this post on Tuesday, Nov. 26), which is Speed 1.0. That workout programs website does say that it’s five days a week, but in reality it’s really two workouts on Friday and then the Stretch DVD (which is basically yoga) on Sundays. Because Fridays are usually my catch-up day, it shouldn’t be a problem to do two workouts that day. The program says that if you can’t do two workouts on Friday, to split it up between Friday and Saturday. One thing I may do differently is instead of the second workout on Friday, I may take a Zumba class instead I do have a gym membership that I pay for each month, so I’d like to keep regularly attending Zumba and yoga classes when I can.
I will keep you updated on my results and let you know how I do each week! I am looking forward to it.
