Next up in the Focus T25 Gamma round is Rip’t Up!
Let’s hop to it! Er, well, let’s curl to it. By the way - anything named ‘Rip’t Up’ is pretty scary, right?
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: Dumbbells or Resistance Bands, miniMAT (optional), chin-up bar (optional)
This reminded me of Beta: Rip’t Circuit (obviously) but is more intense. As always, follow Tania for the modified movies.
You can use any size dumbbell you want but I recommend 8-15 pounds. I used 12 pound dumbbells and, in some instances, 8 pounds.
First, you warm up:
Low Switch Kick
Double Switch Kick
If you can’t tell already - I love the uppercuts….and I’m sweating.
22:10 minute marker: weights
Single Arm Row (L)
Single Arm Row (R)
Recip. Hammer Curl
17:13 minute marker: fast floor to arm work
11:45 minute marker: to the ground
9:35 minute maker: Down Dog work
7:44 minute marker: standing cardio work
Low Hook + Squat Hold
Low Jack Uppercut
Crossdown Punch Jack
5:42 minute marker: down to the mat
4:45 minute marker: GET UP
Single Leg (L) Tricep Press - 12 pounds may be a little too heavy here, again.
Single Leg ® Tricep Press
Arm Jack + Knee In - the guys are hollering.
4-Count Curl Press (L) - welp, try not to fall over! These take forever.
4-Count Curl Press (R)
Then, this happens!!!
I feel like this girl (who about fell over once or twice).
Cool down/Active stretching (3:20 minutes):
These stretches are vey welcomed after what just happened to my arms.
Hands interlocked overhead - stretch to each side
Hands interlocks - to front
Tricep stretch each arm (behind back)
Interlock fingers - palms out - stretch out back
Tricep stretch (across chest)
Interlock fingers behind back - push knuckles to floor
Hands behind head - stretch neck
Hand on head - stretch neck to sides
Well that was fun - my arms want to fall off. The photo sesh’ was taken later in the day and I broke a huge sweat during it.
Scott (Shaun’s hubby) is in this video as well. He is in them all and he is always working extremely hard and sweating about as much as I do. :) He continually has to run between the chin-up bar and his mat/dumbbells. He’s impressive.
It is fantastic to see Shaun T incorporating weights into his DVD videos. Everyone should do resistance training and this is a good combination of cardio and weights.
Here are some cute photos from the shoot: :)!
