Focus T25: Beta Speed 2.0

August 6, 2013

Today I did Focus T25: Beta Speed 2.0 for the first time!  It would be considered day: 37 by the calendar (but I am doing it as part of my own Body Beast/T25 hybrid).

 

 

  • Length: 25 minutes unless you count the Shakeology commercial and Shaun T kablam intro at the beginning and cool down at the end and it is really 30 minutes.  

  • Equipment needed: ‘Nada’

Oh SNAP!  Shaun T does not have a shirt for this workout.  I just got scared for what is about to happen.

 

This workout is like Alpha - it is set to a cool music tempo and requires you to have some coordination.  I am not going to lie!  Tonia is the modifier, like always, so follow her for lower impact moves.

 

Round 1/Level 1:

  • Out + out turn

 

  • Quick feet up + back - Okay, these are hard to keep up with and I blame the carpet in my work out room.  I did a modified/try not to fall over kind of move but kept up as best I could.  I am going to have to go cut the long threads of carpet off that I unraveled.

 

  • Alternating speed knee slow - Oh my gosh, my calves started burning.  This could have been from leg day yesterday or the sheer madness of what was happening.

 

  • Slow mountain climber

 

  • Jab out - grab a few breaths… core hurting…

 

  • Low switch kick

 

  • Speed + agility - ‘Up, center, back, center, wide’.

 

  • Up + Over - WHY ARE MY ABS BURNING?!?

  • Squat hop up + back

 

  • Single leg speed knee (L) - the music just got… sweet.  :)  He even says to listen to it.  I did my best to stay on the ball of my supporting foot but it made my calf feel like it was on FIRE.

 

  • Single leg speed knee (R)

 

  • Jack uppercut - I like when Shaun talks to the cameraman and is sweating up a storm.  It took me a few times to figure out the coordination of jack/uppercut.

 

  • Zigzag hop

 

  • “X” lunge speed time - It took me a couple times to figure this out but I got it.

1:28 minute marker: From Top/Level 2 (each more for one count):

 

I gave myself a pep talk during this jog.  The moves only happen once so it turns into a dance routine with sweat flying everywhere.  That’s pretty cool.

 

Yeah, neighbors, see me dancing?  I have skills.

 

Who am I talking to?  There are no windows in my workout basement room.

:07 minute marker: Jog Recovery

THEN THIS HAPPENS!

 

Which, by the way, you jog for like 5 seconds and then it is over.  My heart rate was in the clouds that I would not call it a proper cool-down or 'recovery’ period.

 

Do.

This.

Cool down:

 

Cool down/Active stretching (2:30 minutes):

  • Alternating knee lifts

  • Hold knee lifts

  • Alternating quad stretch

  • Hold quad stretch

  • Alternating prayer stretch

 

  • Hold prayer stretch

  • Round release back

  • Arms to ground - roll up slowly

 

Final thoughts:

  • OH MY GOSH.  This workout moved so fast and had so many choreographed moves that I barely noticed time passing.  I was busy trying to pretend I was a good dancer and keeping up with Shaun.  NAILED IT.

  • With the cool down and a few minutes of 'catch my breath’ time I burned 405 calories during this crazy workout/dance video.

 

 

  • Beforehand, I did Body Beast Bulk: Shoulders.  I also put on the awesome shirt my friend gave me yesterday (I washed it, don’t worry) after my shower!  It says, 'SMART GIRLS USE DUMBBELLS’ (if you can’t read it).  :)  Ironically, it is tight on my deltoilds/biceps.

 

 

  • This is a fantastic cardio workout if you want to get your boogie on, sweat buckets, and burn calories!
