I don't normally post off topic things but I thought I would give a review of a workout I am about to finish. T25....I pretend the T is for the T-visor.
First some back ground: I did a round of P90X about 5 years ago and got great results, but the workouts were a bit too long for a husband and father of 3. I really liked the simple aspect of P90X of just doing good workouts each day.
I did a round of Insanity earlier this year but did not finish due to a back injury. I liked Insanity also but again the length of the workouts became a bit of a problem. In the second phase of Insanity the workouts stretch out to about 50 to 60 minutes
So about 12 weeks ago I saw a commercial for T25. Basically it is done by the same guy who does Insanity and it is a cardio driven/plyo/resistance style workout. I decided to try it out. I am now in week 9 of 10 so I have made up my mind on the program.
I really have like this workout. Each workout is 25 minutes long with no real warm-up there is about a 3 minute cool down after each day so your total time is about 30 minutes. I have been able to stay with the program and fit in the workouts each day. The workouts are well done and easy to follow. It does require a bit of coordination but that will build with the program. The program is split into Alpha and Beta phases with the moves getting more difficult in Beta. There is also a Gamma workout that you can buy additionally but I haven't done that yet.
So if you are looking for a decent workout I would recommend this. PLUS the T on the back wall reminds me that I need to be in shape to properly troop Jango.
And just for some personal data. I am about 5-10, I started at about 196 and close to 20% body fat. Today I am at 188 with 13.9% body fat.
Also for full disclosure, I still did about 3 gym workouts per week for additional resistance training.
Anyways, just thought I would throw this out there for the community in case anyone else is looking for a workout and would like a review from a unpaid user of the product.
