Focus T25 Workout Review Day 10 Speed 1.0

This is my Focus T25 Workout Review Day 10 Speed 1.0:  Alright my favorite workout Speed 1.0.  The combination of punching and high energy movements gets me fired up.  On Sunday I was feeling restless because it was my “rest” day, but the interesting thing was I actually “missed working-out”  I can’t believe I’m actually saying that.  But, I guess when you’re body is use to working out 5 days a week when you don’t workout you feel like your day is off.  I’ve heard of people saying that, but I never quite understood what they meant.  It was 11:30pm and I had so much energy and couldn’t sleep.  I think it’s because my body is so use to expending a certain amount of energy and burning calories during the workout that when I hadn’t worked out for the day it put my body for a loop.

It felt good to workout today.  I can definitely feel my body getting stronger and I’m getting more flexibility in my legs.  My wife for the first time mentioned today that she noticed some definition in my chest and shoulders.  I guess all those push-ups and plank drills are really paying off.  I’ll take this as a small win in the right direction.  I’ve also been trying to make better decisions with my diet.  Instead of eating my favorite Peanut Butter Crunch cereal which is filled with sugar, I’ve switched to Chex-Mix.  I also replaced eating white rice with brown rice.

I’ve also started adding a protein shake in the morning with a banana.  I’m not a nutritionist but I heard that bananas help with muscle cramps.  I’ve noticed that my body soreness after workouts are not that bad anymore.  I think the hardest part of working out is disciplining your self to eat healthy.

Frozen chicken breast has been my best friend.  I cook a large batch and put it in tupperware so whenever I get hungry I can grab a piece and chop it up and put in salads or eat with some brown rice.  It’s a great source of protein throughout the day.  Overall after a couple workouts I can start to see some difference in my body and how I ultimately feel.

Focus T25 Workout Review Day 10 Speed 1.0

Speed 1.0 as mentioned is my favorite workout.  I like the punch routines and the small pauses in the workout to stretch.  I can definitely feel a difference in my ability to do squats, and lunges.  I’m also started to develop more of a rhythm in the workout because I’m familiar with the workout routine.  I remember my first week I felt like a fish out of water, because I didn’t know the routines and didn’t feel coordinated.

Now I feel comfortable starting the workout because I know what to expect and know that I’ve finished the workout before.  I think the hardest part during this stage for me is slowly pushing myself harder during each workout.  I try to challenge myself to do less modified movements and try to take less breaks inbetween each exercise.  Slow and steady progress I keep reminding myself.

It’s still to early to tell if I’ve achieved any weight loss and muscle gain, but I am starting to like what I see in the mirror.  I’m proud of myself because I was tempted with a large piece of chocolate cake at a banquet dinner I attended.  I wanted to eat the cake really bad because I have a major sweet tooth.  But, I told myself don’t waste a good workout on a piece of cake.  I’m glad to say that I avoided the dessert table and ate a sensible portion.  Thanks for following my journey and hope you’re seeing great progress too.  Keep pushing play and I will too!
