I had a typo in my earlier post. What I meant to say was ... that when I first started exercising "Total Body Burn" was really hard for me and I couldn't get through it all without taking a break or two. But now, it is just at my level for a good workout.

I'm planning on starting the program in a few weeks.

I did the total body burn today for the first time. Wow... it really kicked my butt! I think my body had acclimated to the other workouts and this one shook it up! I had to lay off a few times during the workout, I just couldn't cut it. I will hopefully build up though.

I just quick track "fitness minutes." I don't think the "calories burned" calculations are accurate enough to be worth the trouble. There is no way this program (or any other) can know how many calories were burned with any degree of accuracy. It's just a VERY rough estimate ... so I don't bother with that. I just make sure I do enough exercise to get my heart pumping and a little out of breat at least 150 minutes per week. I aim for 30 minutes per day, 5 days per week -- and usually do a little more than that.

I log my minutes each day in the quick tracker on my start page ... and I participate in one of the challenges in which everybody similarly logs their minutes. We start a new thread every month. Check it out. This month it is called the "June (2013) Fitness Minutes Challenge" thread in the Challenges message board.

Over the last couple of years, I have amassed quite a DVD collection. I have Zumba, some routines by Ellen Barrett, some by The Firm, a couple of TurboFire ones (but not the whole set) ... Paul Katami's Ultimate Kettlebell for Beginners, Melt It Off with Mitch, several by Leslie Sansone, and a few others. I recently ordered a couple that are more pilates/yogo/ballet oriented to change things up a bit. I can't wait for them to arrive to try them out.

What other programs do you do? When you track your fitness did you consider Hip Hop Abs to be low impact aerobics? I wasn't sure how to put my minutes in there...

Hip Hop Abs is one of the programs I have used over the last 5 years. I don't just do "1 program" exclusively as I get bored doing the same thing repeatedly. When I first bought it, I would do one of those DVD's 2 or 3 times per week and do other DVD's on the other days. Now, I just use those DVD's 2 or 3 times per month.

Yes, I thought it was a good DVD program. There were a couple of the routines in which the choreography was either to tricky for me or I just didn't like them enough to master them ... but there were others that were easy to learn. My favorite is the "Total Body Burn" routine. At first, I could get the whole way through it without a break ... but now, it is a good level for a routine workout for me.

I am just beginning the third week of this workout program (I like it thus far, pretty fun) and I wondered if anyone out there has completed it and how it worked for them? I also wondered if it was strange that my abs are the least of my work out pains!? I am generally sore all over... emoticon
