I received Focus T25 Gamma from a friend for my birthday a little over a month ago and I decided it was time to give it a try since I have done Alpha and Beta. :)
This is how it comes packaged:
Upon opening it, there are two calendars inside. One is ‘PURE GAMMA’ and the other is a 'PURE STRENGTH HYBRID’.
It further opens accordion style and is not in the order you would imagine it to be in:
You are also given a paper calendar like you are with Alpha and Beta.
So, here we go! This morning, I did Focus T25: Gamma Speed 3.0!
This workout is a lot like Alpha: Speed 1.0 and Beta Speed 2.0 but it is faster and a little more ridiculous. I would like to nickname this 'BURPEE MADNESS’.
Things are green, the music is faster, and things are about to get insane. Since you basically repeat two groups of moves several times I am going to give you photos from each round of the DVD and then myself for each round.
As always, you can follow Tania for modified moves. I apologize that my neon yellow shirt blends in with my workout room walls…
Round 1/Level 1:
THEN, you do it again but you move a little faster. He says, “I promise you can do it’.
Well, if Shaun says so…
20:21 minute marker: Round 1/Level 2:
Hop Hop Turn
Push-Up + In + Out Abs
17:09 minute marker: Round 1/Level 3
You do all the moves again but the moves go even faster! I am basically sweating into my eye balls at this point.
15:32 minute marker: Round 2/Level 1:
Then, you do it all again but faster…
10:35 minute marker: Round 2/Level 2:
7:22 minute marker: Round 2/Level 3:
You do the moves again, but even quicker and I am sweating all over the place. I probably sweat on the wall.
5:46 minute marker: Jog Recovery
This 'recovery’ turns into a catch your breath, grab a drink, high five your friends kind of time. :) …even though Shaun T tell you not to do that.
5:06 minute marker: From Top/Level 1:
You do each move for 8 counts twice…
…and try not to fall over in madness.
1:55 minute marker: Jog Recovery
1:36 minute marker: From Top/Level 2:
You do each move once.
THEN, this happens:
Cool down/Active stretching (2:25 minutes):
Alternating knee lifts
Hold knee lifts
Alternating quad stretch
Holy moly - that was fast. My hair was falling out of the pony tail holder I had in (and four bobby pins) but I had no time to fix it because the workout was going so fast.
I did not preview this workout beforehand so it was a surprise. The time went fast since I was so busy focusing on the moves - so that’s a plus.
Scott is in the video - like the rest of them. :)
It still amazes me how Shaun T can speak the moves in a sing-song manner that matches the music and the beat. This guy is nuts. I am pretty sure his voice is the music as well.
I burned over 360 calories during this workout. Notice my before and after photo? It kicked my butt but I never stopped or pressed pause. :)
This is a great cardio workout. If you love burpees, you’ll love this workout. If you hate them - do it anyways. :)
Oh, by the way, Yoga Taco anyone?
