Focus T25: Day 1 Review

Saro and I decided to order Focus T25.  Have you heard of it?  It's from the makers of P90x and Insanity except that it's only 25 minutes.
 
I decided to start it last night.  Your heart rate is up within the first 2 minutes.  It's a lot of jumping, squatting, jump squatting, etc.  I burned 369 calories in 29 minutes (25 minute workout, 3 minute cool down and then I did a 1 minute arm plank).
 
I think that's a great burn for a short period!  They recommend doing the program 5x a week and to make one of the days a double session meaning complete two of the workouts.
 
I was able to keep up with the instructor.  The only complaint I have is that my feet were killing me during some of the exercises - mainly the jumps.  My feet started to slide so I grabbed my Pilates mat.  Later that night laying down watching TV, my toes were cramping.  I get this a lot after running too.
 
I feel good this morning.  I'm planning on doing another workout after work before I go out tonight and drink beer :)
 
My eating has been pretty good for the last 2 weeks.  I've been avoiding bread, pasta and too much sugar.
 
With the T25, they sent a free bag of chocolate shakeology which I had with my smoothie this morning.  It was good!  I'll see what their regular prices are like if I decide to order it.
 
TGIF!  Have a great weekend :)

  1. Just shy of 370 calories in 25 minutes? That sounds awesome! And perfect for the days when all there is time for is a quick workout. Might have to check this out!

  2. I haven't tried the t25, but I want to in the next couple months. I love that it's such a crazy workout in such a short period of time!
    I wonder why your toes cramp? Are you still having back troubles? Maybe a pinched nerve?
