I have made it through Alpha!! Therefore, it is time for day: 36: Focus T25: Beta CORE CARDIO!Rather than following the schedule, I am doing my own of Body Beast and Focus T25 (starting today).Length: 25 minutes - unless you count the Shakeology commercial and Shaun T fancy intro at the beginning and cool down at the end and it is really about 30 minutes. Equipment needed: ‘Nada’ The music changes from Alpha - it’s about to get iiiiiiiiiiiintense (or weirdly 60s/70s style). Tonia is, again, the modifier so follow her for the less intense moves.Warm-up:Split lunge agilityLow switch kickDouble switch kickHigh switch kick‘This is beta so I’m goin’ a little bit harder on you and I want you to focus just a little harder’.Static uppercutJack uppercut22:00 minute markerHop fwd + backHop side + sideAlternating speed knee slow'What did you focus on in Alpha?

Love this quote:'I’m lookin’ at you. You stay there. I know it burns and it’s about to get a little bit tougher. But this I where the focus comes in. I love what I do and I love to inspire you and I love when you feel pain because I know you’re gonna look in the mirror tomorrow and you’re gonna feel absolutely amazing.’Rotating “T” twistThis is a weird one and I think I tore up the carpet in my workout room a little bit. Hardwood might be beneficial for this twisting move.13:46 minute marker: Burnout 1Alternating speed knee fast“X” lunge + touch floor'If you’re like - Shaun I’m tired - well guess what?

Orange means you’re MOVING ON BABY!My legs were burning. Holy moly. I was sweating all over the place. By the time I took my HR monitor off, I burnt around 400 calories.I also did beforehand, so I burned about 270 calories with it. My thought during this workout: DUMBBELLS Y U SO HEAVY?! Notice my quick-change set up? Haha.I think I am going to hear 'BURPEE’ in my sleep.Scott (Shaun’s hubby) is in this video as well (I am thinking he will be in all of them) and is super neon-cute as always. I think I have a crush on their love story.The following are two of my favorite sequences during our 'photo shoot’. Thanks hubby.This is not in the workout program but you could consider it an intense planking push-up (since she does not actually hold on).Afterwards, I went upstairs and my daughter said, 'ma, bath’. I laughed and went to shower.This is a fantastic cardio workout. It is one of those that makes me contemplate cutting off ALL OF MY HAIR because it gets so sweaty it slaps me in the face during the workout..
