I’m well into the 2nd week of Focus T25 and today is the second time I took on Total Body Circuit and GOOD LORD that is the hardest workout I’ve ever done. 25 minutes jam packed with squats, hops, planks, and push ups with no breaks. It is ROUGH but the beauty is there is a modifier so it CAN be done. The last 4 minutes is the “burnout” where Shaun T packs each of the moves in at the end and at this point I just wanted to cry. It’s seriously that challenging but in the best way. I’m continually amazed at how efficient these workouts are in only 25 minutes. My new goal for the Alpha phase (the first 5 weeks of the program) is to get through this workout without stopping or modifying. I WILL do this!!
Post workout I wasn’t much for smiling but check out the sweat and awesome calorie burn:
Pre workout I was trying to will myself to get it done, knowing that it was a hard workout, and catching up with some of my challenge groups and someone’s post really struck a chord with me. This mindset I often get in to of “having to workout” is totally negative. I don’t HAVE to workout. I GET to workout! Not everyone has the ability to move their body and push themselves and really it’s a blessing that I often take for granted. No more! I was lucky enough to GET to workout with Shaun T today and I’m looking forward to pushing play again and again – because I CAN!
It’s only 60 more days!
