Monday I did the whole Biggest Loser Last Chance Workout DVD.
It has a warm up - 5 minutes, cardio/strength intervals - 25 minutes, upper body workout - 10 minutes, lower body workout - 10 minutes, cool/stretch - 5 minutes... if you are familiar with Jillian Micheals at all, you know it is tough. I cannot complete the last of cardio/strength intervals as it is mountain climbers and jumping jack planks, but I do my best and I love to yell at Jillian.
I picked up some DVDs from the libary this week to have a look at... and so Thursday I did The Biggest Loser Jump Start DVD.
This one is led by 3 different contestants from the show and is actually better than I thought it would be. I did the whole thing and the workouts each have about a minute of warm and cool and are 10 minutes in total each: cardio, cardio with weights, upper body workout, lower body workout, ab workout, for a total of 50 minutes... a good sweat, and fun. There are some things I hadn't seen before and I did enjoy it... although I think it would get 'old' pretty quickly if in a regular rotation.
And today, I chose another library find.. one I have looked at before but never got around to trying... one of the 10 Minute Solutions titles called RAPID RESULTS Fat Burner.
Again, each 10 minute section has a short warm and cool section and solid heart-pounding cardio routine. There are 5 of them in all, each quite different from the others: power sports drills, extreme intervals, low impact fat blaster, rapit results kickboxing and cario max. All of them were intense and after doing all 5 of them I was quite spent. I enjoyed the workout but honestly I wouldn't select it again.
I have not run yet this week... I sure hope the weather holds so I can get out Saturday for 5km.
Do you like exercise DVDs? Do you have any to recommend to me?
