Focus T25 Workout Review Day 12 Lower Focus and Ab Intervals

This is my Focus T25 Workout Review Day 12 Lower Focus and Ab Intervals: I’m sorry but I hate Lower Focus and Ab Intervals day.  Not only is it a double day workout, but I’m not a fan of legs and abs.  Sorry if I’m not being motivational but I just wanted to be honest.  But, I did grind through the workout and simply did my best.  I didn’t do as many reps as the people in the video because I wanted to focus on form.  I kept saying to myself that if I get through this workout I’ll get rewarded with 2 days of rest.  It’s amazing to me to see the ongoing support for this documented journal.  I was thinking that people wouldn’t want to read it because they would rather read a journal from a fitness expert.  I think some people would prefer reading this because it’s “real” and not perfect, because lets face it most of us are not in athletic shape like Shaun T and in shape like he is.  Alright so let’s get to the good stuff… please check out my review of the workout below.

Focus T25 Workout Review Day 12 Lower Focus and Ab Intervals

As the infomercial states these workouts do not offer any rest.  When you click that play button it’s non-stop for 25 minutes so by the time workout is done I’m dripping in sweat.  Normally working out to Lower Focus and Ab Intervals is tough by itself but adding them together in one day is no joke.  I highly recommend you take some time to stretch out your legs really well before Lower Focus.  I would especially stretch out your quadriceps because it definitely burns during the workout.  I will say that before starting T25 I could not do alot of the movements shown in the video because I have a history of bad knees.  But, I’m happy to say that my leg muscles have gotten stronger as a result of T25 and I’m able to do jump routines and squats which I wasn’t able to do before.  I did try the “Insanity Workout Program” before and that workout program has more high impact moves.  I think that people might have complained on the amount of high impact moves in that workout program because there is definitely less impact movements in T25.  There are a lot of lunges and squats in T25 versus jumping.

The Ab Intervals workout is exactly as it sounds.  It’s all abs without the traditional situps, which I like.  It’s great to be able to workout core muscles without having to lay on your back all the time.  But, don’t get it twisted you will get a hardcore ab workout in this video.  Between planks, abdominal twists, and side legs that workout your obliques your abs will be good to go.

I’ve pretty much explained what to expect in these two workouts in my previous weeks blog posts.  But, what I like to add is I was able to do a double workout day, whereas in week 1 there was no way my body could handle it.  It’s all about the small wins and celebrating them!  I’m going to enjoy my two days off.

I have  a Spring Break vacation coming up so that is going to be a physical and mental challenge because I will have to force myself to find a time to workout while on vacation… darn.  Also, I will be very tempted to eat unhealthy food, because lets face it when you’re on vacation you want to splurge and enjoy yourself.  Thanks for following this journey.  Keep pushing play!


  1. so I just finished my second week of alpha and just out of curiosity do we do both workouts at the same time or each at different times of the day?? What does everyone else do?

    Hi hope you’ve had a good spring break.

    I’m in week one of alpha and I am following your blog. You’re doing really well. The first few weeks are always the hardest. Day 4 nearly finished me off today and I’m not looking forward to the double tomorrow. Has been nice to see your real experience of the programme. I’m looking forward to your next installments.

    Keep up the hard work and thank you for sharing your journey!

    I’m following your progress as I started T25 yesterday. I was really pleased when I noticed this is in ‘real time’. My husband and I are going away in 90 days and hope we can make a bit of progress using this programme.

    You’re right its hard having kids and sticking to a programme so hopefully 25 min a day will slot in easily. I’ve messed up as I’ve started on a Saturday but I’m the queen of “I’ll start Monday” so thought with the momentum I’d start whatever the day – also not until I read your comments that I realized day 5 is always a double… Hmmm not looking forward to Wednesdays now.

    Have a great spring break and I hope to see your other comments about T25.
