FOCUS T25 is fast and furious home workout

Ready for a shock? Turns out longer workouts don’t always deliver better results. In fact, major studies show that the first 30 minutes of exercise can be every bit as effective at burning fat as workouts that are twice as long.

So when you do a FOCUS T25 workout, you can get an hour’s worth of results…but you’ll be getting it done in only 25 minutes—so you stay within that optimal, fat-burning zone.

Josh was amazing…he stuck with it and lost a ton of weight!
After this you progress to kicking your legs at waist level which is a normal switch kick. As a result of this it seems that T25 is more low impact than Insanity. I would have very sore knees from Insanity and it seems that is a common occurrence with that program. In addition to this once you have exhausted one body part Shaun T will introduce a different exercise focusing on a different part of the body.
I have also noticed less push ups (in the first month). If you have Insanity then you know that push ups are in nearly every workout. There is also a burnout in T25. After you do a set of moves you then combine them and push as hard as you can(although you will be pushing the whole video).

“I know a thing or two about getting insane results…”

There’s a Shakeology commercial before each workout, which is really annoying, but the discs are programmed so that you can fast forward through them.

BOTTOM LINE
Good, quick workout. You get a lot of workout in a little time with less impact than Insanity. If you want to shape up but don’t have hours a day, this is an excellent choice. It’s not a fitness program for a professional athlete. If that’s what you are looking for, maybe Asylum 1 and 2 might work for you, but most professionals really need personal professional coaching and much more than 25 minutes a day, not a mass-market DVD program.

Dynamic CoreYou’ll go from vertical to horizontal and back again in this dynamic, crazy core routine.
Upper FocusShaun will help you develop the upper body of your dreams. All you have to do is FOCUS.

After all, I’m Shaun T, the guy who created INSANITY. But I also know that everybody doesn’t have an hour or more to spend working out every day. That’s why I created FOCUS T25. So you can get those same results in just 25 minutes.
 
“Think FOCUS T25 is too tough for you? Meet Josh…”

Speed 2.0 – Rev it up with Shaun’s calorie-scorching, core-focused speed drills.
Total Body Circuit – Focus on strength and resistance-without lifting a single weight.
Ab Intervals – Cardio and ab intervals that shred the fat from your midsection.

T25 is more geared toward the very serious fitness

This is a good, fun workout program with the production quality you would expect from a Beachbody product (note: I am NOT a BB coach, so have nothing to sell you, I’m just giving my opinion).

Asylum is really geared more toward the very serious athlete, while T25 is more geared toward the very serious fitness enthusiast. To be honest, most of us aren’t training for a professional level sport, so this is not a problem and you get an amazing workout in just 25 minutes. And it doesn’t require all of the equipment of an Asylum-type workout, just a mat and the included band or some weights if you have them.

Dynamic Core – You’ll go from vertical to horizontal and back again in this dynamic, crazy core routine.

11 nonstop 25-minute workouts on 9 DVDs, Quick-Start Guide, Nutrition Guide, ALPHA-BETA Workout Calendars, 5-Day Fast Track, and a B-LINES Resistance Band (15 lbs.) This program is neither Insanity nor Asylum. It’s about as intense as Insanity without all of the crazy plyometrics but with a little of the additional strength and agility from Asylum, but I wouldn’t say it has the same focus as Asylum.

NOTE: Quick-Start Guide, Nutrition Guide, Workout Calendars, and 5-Day Fast Track are located inside the shrink-wrapped DVD wallet. Remove the plastic shrink-wrap to locate these materials.

So if you look at the first month of Insanity and take away the stretch those routines are roughly a half hour or less which pretty much equals the same amount of time as Focus T25. Now I have only done the first month workouts but here are some major differences I’ve noticed. T25 features progressive exercises. For example when you do switch kicks you start standing on the floor with no jumping and simply do a low switch kick. After around thirty seconds you will then jump and do a normal switch kick while still keeping your legs low.

Rip’T CircuitCardio…upper body…legs…abs…repeat! This is how you get ripped in 25 minutes.
The FOCUS T25 Base Kit consists of the first two of three T25 cycles: ALPHA and BETA

The result is FOCUS T25-and the name implies the intent: If you focus your intensity for 25 minutes, and you do it 5 days a week, you will get results.

Core Cardio – Get your sweat on. This progressive cardio-core workout is about you getting shredded fast.

Lower Focus – Focus on your lower-body muscles-the key to burning fat and kicking up your metabolism.

It’s no surprise…you don’t have time. Well, nobody’s getting ripped by wishing they could fit in a workout. So let’s take that excuse right off the table.
 
Because now I’ve got a 25-minute workout that pushes you as hard—or harder—than any hour-long workout you’ve ever done. A workout that will have you dripping with sweat after 10 minutes, and totally done in 25.

It’s called FOCUS T25. It’s short. It’s intense. And the results?Just ridiculous.

“What kind of workout gets results like this in just 25 minutes a day?”

move by bending your elbows and shoulder

Perform the move by bending your elbows and shoulder (like an upside-down shoulder press) without bending your knees or flexing your hips further.

Feet-elevated push-up: These can be performed with your feet elevated on a bench or chair while keeping your torso straight and your abs tight. Once you T25 Workout By Shaun T complete a set, you can immediately drop your feet to the floor and continue your set.

Wide-grip inverted row: These can be done while lying under a Smith machine or squat rack bar set about waist high. You can either set your feet on the ground (beginner) or on a bench (intermediate) while grasping the bar a little wider than shoulder width. Pull to your lower per region and keep your back and legs in line and your abs tight.

Reverse lunge: Be sure that while lunging back take a long stride so that your front knee does not go past your foot. Also, if you are not accustomed to the reverse lT25 unge take each rep slow and controlled and master the form and technique.

Short all-out sprint outdoors or on treadmill: The distance and duration with sprints can vary according to your fitness level and experience. If you are new to Focus T25 sprints, simply start with an intensity level, and time you can comfortably complete. Afterward, build from there and challenge yourself to increase speed and intensity.

Jackknife push-up: What can be described as the beginner handstand push-up, the jackknife version has you plant your feet on the ground and get into a hip-only bent-over position with your hands on the ground and butt in the air (much like downward dog in yoga).

Inverted rack curl: Getting in a similar position as the inverted row, only this time grab the bar with a reverse (palms facing you) shoulder-width grip. Keeping your body in line from your feet to your shoulders, “curl” yourself up to the bar. Adjust the height of the bar for difficulty level.

Rack triceps press: Adjust a Smith machine bar or a bar in a squat rack around waist height. Facing the bar grasp it with a shoulder-width overhand grip and step back from the bar until your body is in line and your arms are perpendicular to your body. Descend your body Shaun T Workout T25 toward the bar until it is close to your forehead (much like a nosebreaker). Extend back to the straightened position.

Bulgarian split squat: Be sure to plant your foot far enough out in front of you so that your knee does not flow over your toe. Also, resist the urge for the trailing foot (the one on the bench) to help lift your body weight and never slam your knee to the floor. Utilize a pad or stop just an inch or two before your knee touches.

Box Jump: When performing box jumps never jump off the platform to the floor. Always step off to avoid too much knee stress. Also, if possible, be sure to you are using a padded or rubberized floor for joint safety.

this program to lose fat without stepping on

Now however, the aim of the game is to finish the predetermined number of sets in the shortest time possible.  That means the program variable has changed from amount of circuits and the constant being the time, to the circuits being constant and the variable being the time.  This is another great reason why this program and the original can be used separately for continued results.

As stated earlier, the format is a bit different now.  Now you have three circuits.  The first consists of 2 main lifts.  You will go through this Shaun T Focus T25 Workout first circuit 4 times, with one set of each exercise each time through the circuit. The second will consist of the secondary exercises you will do to supplement your performance.

You will go through this second circuit 3 times, which is one less circuit, but one additional exercise. And for the third (you should sense a general pattern by now), you will do 4 exercises, but only go through the circuit twice.  These exercises are all pretty isolated and just the icing on the cake.

Following the last circuit, you can also do the additional “finisher” listed below that day.  Finishers are just an extra way to push your body to the limits and help you get to your fat loss goals that much quicker.  You might want to Shaun T Focus T25 Workout just run through the first week with just the circuits before adding the finishers in, just to get a feel for the workout before getting too crazy.

If you still want to do some extra cardio on the side to help speed up the fat loss process, I’d suggest doing it on your off days, and/or during a second workout that day.  Some great exercises people implemented in addition to this program are swimming, jogging and walking.  I’m especially fond of the latter as it helps you recover from the Density Giant Set program, while burning extra fat.

Intro

If you need the background to Density Giant Set Training, I strongly recommend you read this: Density Giant Set Training.  But the short and simple explanation of this workout is that I designed this program to lose fat without stepping on any dreaded traditional cardio machine and to maximize to efficiency to save as much time as possible for life outside of the gym.  And thanks to all of the support and feedback from the original program, I’ve managed to make an already awesome workout, even better.

Many people have told me that they were unable to get together enough equipment in the gym to successfully complete multiple circuits without having to wait for equipment (which can be quite a buzz kill when trying to bang out a serious program like this with all out intensity).  So to this, I’ve responded by changing the format which allows for some serious intensity without the need to hoard all of the equipment in the gym.  The new format, which is outlined below, only requires at most 4 exercise instruments at a single time.

Another problem many people have experienced in the first program is the rigid structure, which doesn’t allow for much additional work.   This structure was also very oriented to maintaining strength during the program.  However, now I have T25 created to slightly different workout templates.

One of these templates is still the 3-Day split, geared towards maximal strength retention during fat loss.  This is still great for athletes trying to make weight such as Powerlifters, Wrestlers, and MMA athletes among others, but now I have also included a 4-Day split geared more specifically towards people looking more to maintain size and muscle mass during a fat loss period.  This latter model is geared more towards bodybuilders, and the general population looking more towards physique goals.

Again, in no way am I trying to put Shaun T Focus T25 Workout down the great Density Giant Set Training program, just now there is more variety in terms of ways to hit the program to achieve your desired results.  But the original program is still definitely awesome, and I definitely suggest giving that program a whirl either after, or before this one, to continue your fight towards fat loss.

These eight tips will help you pump up your health!

1 GET MOTIVATED WITH MUSIC

If there’s one thing that universally gets people in the groove, it’s the right kind of music with the right amount of intensity. Collin strongly believes in a good playlist to jam and train to, since it can keep motivation and Shaun T Workout T25 By Shaun25 efforts high. Bobbing your head to the right tempo can, in turn, help you coerce your body to work harder. We all know that the harder we push, the better the pump. Whether it’s James Brown or heavy metal, work out to the beat of your favorite tunes!

2 SHORTEN YOUR REST PERIODS

There’s no rest for the man who seeks the pump. Decreasing your rest time can elicit a greater pump effect. The shorter your rest periods, the more blood will shoot through muscle tissue, leading to that feeling of absolute swollness. Just T25 avoid killing yourself to the point at which you have to significantly dial back on the weights; that might temper the raw benefits. Aim to rest no more than 30-60 seconds when you’re chasing a mean pump.

3 SLOW DOWN YOUR TEMPO

One of the best ways to ensure a strong muscle contraction, and subsequent muscular development, is to perform each rep more slowly. This tip especially is helpful for those of you who typically lift with a faster tempo. By slowing it down to T25 Workout By Shaun T controlled movements of the exercise, you increase the time under tension, which will let you zone-in on the aforementioned “squeeze” and can lead to better gains. Couple this with short rest periods for a killer effect.

4 DROPSET FOR EXTREME PUMPS

The dropset is IFBB pro Collin Wasiak’s preferred technique to evoke the almighty pump. In a dropset, you continue the same exercise with a lower weight once you reach muscular failure at a higher weight. This pushes your T25 muscles past the point of fatigue. With each successive drop, more blood rushes into the cells, strengthening the overall effect of the pump. Aim to drop the weight twice, doing three sets per dropset.

the health food section of your local grocery store

One tablespoon of chia seeds contains five grams of fiber, while you’d need two tablespoons of flaxseed meal to get the same amount of fiber. One tablespoon of chia seeds Shaun T Workout T25 By Shaun25 has approximately 2.4 grams of the plant-based omega-3 fat, alpha-linolenic acid, also found in flaxseed meal.

Chia seeds contain chlorogenic acid, an antioxidant that may help improve blood sugar control. You can find chia seeds in the health food section of your local grocery store, usually near the flaxseed. Adding chia seeds to your diet is simple. Mix them into yogurt, add 1 tablespoon to a protein shake or stir them into oatmeal for an extra infusion of fiber and antioxidants.

Blueberries are one of a limited number of fruits with its origins in North America. A berry with a long history, researchers estimate that blueberries have been around for 13,000 years. They were a long-time staple of native American foragers, used for nutritional and medicinal purposes. Blueberries have also been shown to fight America’s silent killer, high blood pressure.

Eating the equivalent of 2 cups of blueberries each day for eight weeks can lower blood pressure by 6 Shaun T T25 Workout  percent, according to a 2010 study in “The Journal of Nutrition.” Blueberries, like raspberries, are just as nutritious fresh as they are frozen. Top a bowl of Greek yogurt with blueberries and raw cashews for a simple, high protein, high antioxidant breakfast, or have a bowl of blueberries after dinner for a naturally sweet dessert.

brisk walks or other fun physical activities

Many women want to look amazing, and there’s not a thing wrong with that. But I think it’s crucial that we start to love our bodies, not just for how they look, but for what they can do. Strength goals help you to love your body because of its physical abilities. You don’t have to wait until you Shaun T T25 Workout improve your body fat percentage; you can be proud of your body right now, at this very moment.

Learning to love you body for what it can do instead of how it looks is freeing. You’re no longer chained to that idea of perfection, and that freedom is an unbelievable feeling.

So ditch the “bikini booty” workouts and unleash your true strength.

Start getting stronger today!

I encourage you to focus solely on getting stronger Shaun T T25 Workout for the next 6-8 weeks, at least. Make your workouts about doing a little better than you did last week by adding weight to the barbell or grabbing heavier dumbbells.

Here’s a sample get-stronger workout program that will bring life to the above benefits!

Rotate these two workouts and perform them three times per week on non-consecutive days. You may also include brisk walks or other fun physical activities on non-lifting days. If you only have time to train twice per week, do so with at least two days of rest between workouts.

The goal for each workout is simple: do a little better than T25 you did last time. You can perform an extra rep per set or slightly increase the weight on each lift. For bodyweight exercises, use a more challenging variation. For example, work up to doing push-ups on your feet instead of your knees.

For each exercise, I suggest using the same weight until you can perform 2-3 more reps than what’s listed above. Once you can do that, increase the weight slightly (or choose a more difficult variation) and start back at the provided rep range.

Rinse, repeat, and become a stronger, more awesome version of yourself!

The Basic Requirements for Gaining Muscle

 Shaun T Workout T25 By Shaun25

 

Focus T25 Workout

First and foremost, you need to create a training stimulus – meaning you have to send a clear message to the body that it needs more muscle mass. This is accomplished thru progressive overload. When you’re training and you push your body a little further than it is used to, it will respond by adapting to the new more challenging stimulus by getting stronger and more muscular. There are an infinite variety of ways to overload the body, but the variables you use when writing a program are Intensity (how much weight you use relative to your one rep max), Volume (how many sets and reps you do), Frequency (how often you train each muscle group), and the amount of rest you take between sets. If you raise the weight, do more sets and/or reps, train more often, Or shorten your rest intervals between sets you will overload your muscle and stimulate new muscle growth, provided the other points Focus T25 on this list are also covered. Some of the best exercises for overloading your body always have been and always will be compound free weight exercises. Build your program around presses, rows, deadlifts, squats and lunges and your body will have no choice but to adapt, and anything that is more than your body is accustomed to doing will generate a change, so don’t be afraid to set small, obtainable goals almost every workout and dig deep for them!

Once you’re training for personal records, you need to let your body adapt to all these new demands you’re placing on it. Recovery is every bit as important as training stimulus, so in order to realize your muscle-building goals, you need to be training hard, then go home and rest! Recovery needs differ for every individual, but a good rule of thumb is that everyone needs at least 1-2 days off from lifting per week, and intermediate to advanced lifters should schedule occasional deloading weeks where they intentionally train lighter (~60-80% of normal weights) to facilitate recovery. This keeps your skill and technique up, and Focus T25 can improve recovery by increasing blood flow to your musculature – just don’t shoot for any records here! Factors that can affect your recovery rate are: Your training level (beginners are far from their ultimate potential and therefore do less strenuous workouts and recover from them faster; the opposite is true for advanced athletes). Your quality and quantity of sleep – more is better! Your nutrition (see the 3rd point) and your age (all else being equal, a middle aged athlete may be able to train just as hard as a teenager, but will likely take almost twice as long to recover). A typical bodybuilding split routine provides ample rest by splitting up the muscle groups of the body into separate workouts, so this is a great place to start for intermediate lifters and above, whereas true beginners can capitalize on their rapid recovery by doing 3-4 total body workouts per week.

The last point on this list is at least as important as the first two: In order to make gains in the gym, you need to give your body optimal amounts of the best possible fuel. ‘Bulking’ is never a good excuse for binging on junk food – it’s quite the opposite! When you are repeatedly striving for personal records on the major lifts you need to be giving your all the nutrients it can get. Base your diet around Shaun T Workout T25 the four food groups (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes) and strive for a modest caloric surplus (take in a little more calories per day than you need to maintain your weight – approximately 200-400 extra). Eating healthy foods with a moderate surplus of calories will ensure slow, sustainable weight gain with optimal performance and minimal fat gains.

By covering these three bases in an organized and consistent fashion you can reliably build a stronger, more muscular body – it’s that simple. So, the next T25 time you’re flipping through a fitness magazine, take any secret formulas with a big grain of salt and remember these basics!

 

people screw up their muscle building diet

We’ll save that for another day. What we’re talking about here is the second part of that equation… the workouts.

If you’re reading this, it’s pretty safe to assume that you want to Shaun T Workout T25 By Shaun25 build muscle. Awesome.

When we’re trying to reach this goal, there are 2 very important areas we need to focus on and get right. One of them is our diet. The other is our workout routine.

Now there are PLENTY of ways people screw up their muscle building diet, but we’re not talking about that here.

And more often than not, that focus begins with bodybuilding. T25 Workout By Shaun T makes perfect sense. After all, bodybuilding is literally ALL about building muscle and achieving a body that looks as amazing as possible. It’s what we’re all trying to do.

Therefore, if we want to build muscle as effectively as possible, bodybuilding workouts are clearly the way to do it. Right?

Well, not exactly. That’s because typical bodybuilding workouts absolutely SUCK for building muscle!

I know, I know. That sounds completely incorrect. It sounds backwards and wrong and is Focus T25 Workout the total opposite of what most of us think or would ever believe. But, it’s 100% true.

Brace yourself…
