Focus T25 - Alpha - Lower Focus

So after doing Ab Intervals, Lower Focus is the second workout to do on the first Friday.  This basically means that you're following up an ab-whopping with an.... ah, never mind.

This video consists of a lot of leg and hip-flexor work, as you might imagine.  Think: squats, lunges (oh, the lunges!), lunge pulses, and even some calf-specific exercises. 

For me, lunges are not normally a problem, but my legs were definitely screaming through this.  I think the bigger challenge for me is some of the hopping exercises -- my flat feet aren't that flexible, so when Shaun T tells you to stay on the balls of yor feet, my poor inflexible feet are tortured.

Not a TON of sweat, but a LOT of "focus."

Other than that, this video is not exactly eventful, probably my least favorite so far, but I'm sure beneficial to my leg strength (for running!!).

Caloric burn (without stretch): 169**
