DVD Challenge


Tuesday, May 01, 2012

Rheynklaw inspired me to take up her DVD reviews, or at least try doing some self-guided attempts at fitness at home. (And maybe even at work!) I picked up a few choices from the library for free, and I will try them over this week to see how they suit me.

1] Jillian Michael's "No More Trouble Zones" -- a very popular DVD of cardio exercises targeting upper and lower body sculpting. A 40 minute circuit. Small weights suggested.

2] Jillian Michael's "Ripped in 30" -- another popular DVD in Jillian's series based on a 24 minute circuit of strength, cardio, and abdominal intervals. Leveled from beginners to advanced on a 4 week program. I'm looking forward to this bad boy.

3] Jillian Michaels's "Yoga Meltdown" -- I'm not obsessed with her, honest. It just happened this yoga video was on the library shelf and before I commit to a hardcore yoga routine, I would like to have some balance to avoid falling over! :)

To Try Later:
1] Jackie Warner's"Xtreme Timesaver Training" - Not sure how this will go but killing 30 minutes working out hard for 30 minutes sounds like fun.

2] Shakti Yoga DVD - This looks pretty good as well.

    If you're considering different yoga types, go for the simplest ones. The introductory classes at my local studio are mostly based around hatha. Hot yoga, vinyasa, and the rest are a lot more active and challenging (which may work for you). Hatha yoga is more forgiving. My brown-belt hapkido friend also suggests ta'i chi to build up balance and muscle control. He's been trying to get me to do it for years.

    Jeez, lots to choose from! I've tried a bunch of Jillian's DVDs and they're good for the most part~ She's really a fan of combining upper and lower body movements. I totally love her so I find she motivates me more as well. :)

I haven't tried a bunch of yoga, but there are just so many types that I always get kind of confused on which one I'd like. x_x
