Focus T25: Beta Speed 2.0

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?!?

  • 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.

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!
