I'm in week 2 of Rockin Body. I think this is a great workout. I should have measured myself when I started so I don't know how many inches I've lost. I can tell you that I sweat more in that 30 min workout than in any 60 min Zumba class at the gym.

Your weight loss goal may be a little aggressive. Diet is 80% of weight loss but be careful you don't under feed your body. With all the exercise your doing you may want to eat a little more. Too few calories will cause your body to go into starvation mode and try to retain fat. That defeats all your hard work.

Hi there well it is all cardio nonstop dancing with just nonstop moving. I love it. I also walked for 2 hours today. Oh man felt awesome. It makes you feel so much stronger. I just want to drop the weight by summer no matter what I have to do. I want to lose 40 lbs minimum by summer but I have no motivation but myself and that gets tough sometimes.

This isn't going to answer you specific question about RB but might be helpful.

- You cannot spot reduce, just not going to happen.
- The formula for overall body fat loss is the following (no luck needed):
Eating within your Spark range based on your goals and current exercise.
Strength Train to minimize muscle loss and maximize fat loss while you're at a calorie deficit. (truthfully, you should do ST whether you're at a deficit or not)
Do some form of cardio you enjoy and can be consistent with.
- 1lb of muscle takes up less space than 1lb of fat equaling lost inches.
- Strength training will not bulk you up.

No but I tried the 10-minute workout program. It was 2 dvds with 2 or 3 killer workouts on each one. They said if you do a 10-minute workout for 3 months then you are guaranteed results. I did 3 workouts a day for 3 months and was just as flabby, heavy and disgusted with myself as I was when I started out. No lost inches, no lost pounds. I kept the dvds because my father had given them to me and thought I could use them as a companion workout to a future body sculpting program. Maybe this summer I'll do one before work every morning. I certainly hope you have better luck than I did.

Anyone had any luck with rocking body by beachbody? I have started it along with walking everyday, like today walked for 2 hours, plus I have cut back food intake a lot but I need something so I can lose some inches plus tone my legs and stomach quick but not unhealthy quick.
