I have to admit that the Alpha phase of T25 is getting a little dull. In fact, the thought of doing these same videos again makes me cringe. I really miss lifting weights and I’m pretty sure that the next phase of the program has at least one video where you get to do that. I’m starting to think that I shouldn’t have redone Week Four and simply moved on, but I didn’t want to “cheat” on the program.
I was planning to do Insanity Max 30 as my next fitness challenge, which is another Shaun T program. However, I’ve decided that I need a break from body weight exercises and jumping, so I am going to do a different challenge instead. I am currently designing my own customized workout schedule to share with all of you, so stay tuned for an update on what’s coming next (and consider joining me!).
How long does it take before you start to get bored of a workout program? I’ve realized I have about a 30 day tolerance for repetition.
Day 30: Cardio
I am happy to report that I nailed it. Yes, you right that correctly. I killed this workout!
Day 31: Total Body Circuit
This video is still tough, but I am happy to report that I am continuously improving. I did have to modify, so I have to give myself a barely made it. If I don’t nail this video next week, I am going to keep it in my workout repertoire until I do!
Day 32: Lower Focus
If it wasn’t for the
terrible lunge section of this video, I would have nailed it. My legs are really strong…or so I thought until I did this workout and barely made it.
Day 33: Total Body Circuit
Doing this video twice in a week is really cruel. You guessed it: barely made it.
Day 34: Ab Intervals and Speed 1.0
I was very close to nailing the Speed 1.0 workout despite the burpees, but I did have to modify in one section resulting in a barely made it.
Given my current level of core strength, the ab video is a bit of a waste of time for me. There aren’t many modifiers given, so I’m really not deriving a lot of benefit from going through the motions. In fact, I might skip it next week and replace it with another video.
Day 35: Rest
This weekend was Thanksgiving in Canada, so it was nice to have a day of rest. It was beautiful outside, so I spent a few hours playing with B instead of with Shaun T.
Day 36: Stretch
I’m fairly certain that I will never do this routine. Despite my best intentions, it just doesn’t happen.
