Just wanted to check back with you two - Lomez and Cat... How has it been going?
I didn't see your last post Lomez, but yeah man, I got it about 2 weeks ago IIRC from Amazon. I finally pulled the plastic off of it last night, lol.
I've been doing Insanity and replacing the "cardio recovery" day with pick-up basketball at the gym. Problem is, for the last two weeks or so, I ended up missing the Wednesday night workout and then usually Friday's as well and had to make them back up. So, my schedule was so jacked up that I ended up having to catch up on all those days and so now, I finished the first month on Tuesday. I took a day off Wednesday, and so, not wanting to start recovery week mid-week, I decided I needed to do something in the meantime... And I wasn't looking forward to adding on any other 45+ minute workouts prior to recovery week when I know what is coming after it, lol...
So, I figured I would do a couple days of T25 to stay active on these days without Insanity until I start recovery week on Monday and move forward with month two. I popped Cardio in last night to preview it, and I have to say, I have mixed feelings. I didn't actually do it, but I will be doing it tomorrow. I was really disappointed that there was absolutely no upper body-focused moves in this DVD. With Insanity, there was always some variation of pushups or upper body work. Please tell me there is enough to make up for it throughout a week of T25! It honestly did not seem as intense as Insanity either... The part I like about it so far from what I saw though was how it gets straight to the point... No two-hour long warmup and stretch, lol... Just straight to the work and you work all the way through for 25 minutes, then you're done!
I don't know, hopefully it has some strength building work in there throughout the week, but I was really disappointed that it wasn't present in every DVD apparently. You think it makes a difference? Seeing some of the testimonials, it's clear the program works just as good as Insanity, if not better, but I actually started to wonder if that was because these people were a LOT more strict diet-wise versus the actual exercise workload.
