Focus T25 Day 4 Alpha Ab Intervals

t25-alpha-ab-intervalsAlpha ab intervals promises to give you a shredded core with an interval-based fat-burning routine.

I have to be honest here, overall I didn’t find this workout to be very challenging.  Don’t get me wrong, there were a few moments where my abs were screaming but those times were few and far between. I was really expecting more of a challenge especially since I lost the majority of my ab strength over the course of my pregnancy.  To be fair it is probably better to not feel like you are going to die through every single workout….I’ll be interested to see my results over the next 5 weeks of the alpha rounf.  Maybe this workout is more effective than it feels?
