1. Kickboxing, especially Turbo Jam - it has intervals. 2. Cathe does interval type stuff - on the floor and using a step bench. 3. Christy Taylor - no intervals, but major calorie burn using step benching (kind of dancy, though) 4. Gin Miller with Reebok has a series that uses intervals on a step bench.
Thanks so much everyone for the suggestions. Now I can search for these on Amazon and Blockbuster to see if I can get my hands on them. Burning 500 would be good and then I can finish with something else to get the calorie burn I need.
I go to the gym and use the Elliptical, StairMaster, Arc or bike. I do intervals and burn between 650 and 700 - sometimes I do more and burn 1,000.
But, I have my heart rate at about 171+ the whole time with a few boughts of 160's.
I do go intense, so I need to keep that up if I were to use DVD's at home instead. I am doing the Shred and that burns about 250 in 22 minutes. But, you feel like you were at the gym for an hour because it's intense.
i workout to Billy Blank's Tae Bo DVDs and Turbo Jam. Both DVDs will burn major calories in an hour. I haven't been working out with my heart rate monitor for some time (in repair) but i last recall burning approx 550 calories on Tae Bo DVD.
My favorite DVDs are Turbo Jam Cardio Party 1, 2, and 3 (all 45-50 minutes long). I burn about 400 calories, but then again, even at my hardest workout at the gym I burn about 500 calories in 60 minutes. So, who knows, you could be more. But, all the Cardio Party DVDs are completely cardio rather than full-body like someone else mentioned. My living room isn't too large and I do just fine.
This is off topic, I've never done a work out DVD before...but I'm wondering how you can burn 650 calories in one hour? I can only burn about 400-450 in an hour! your work outs must be intense! What do you do during a usual work out that burns so many calories!?
I had the exact same problem, and solved it by wearing a Heart Rate Monitor, and working out, till I got to my calorie expenditure goal for the workout.
A lot of the DVDs, try to give a comprehensive full body workout, hence the inability to find one that is limited to just cardio exercises only.
Jumping rope is good for limited space areas, and will give you a pretty good workout. its not the most joint friendly though. Step aerobics are pretty high intensity workouts too, and is usually not a problem, even if you don't have a lot of room.
I read through all the posts I could find on good Cardio Only DVD ideas, but didn't see very much out there. I am hoping that someone can recommend a good DVD that concentrates on Cardio only and can be done in 60 minutes - and burns a large amount of calories in that time.
I currently go to the gym and use machines to burn about 650-700 calories per hour.
Could anyone suggest a DVD that can be done that does not require a huge amount of floor space? I have one room in a condo where I can do this...
