You can't do it Wrong

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

emoticon I worked out to Leslie's 3 mile video on youtube from Exercise tv. youtu.be/xRScb2l4Z4g I wore my waist trimmer which I bought on Amazon. The reason I like to wear this when walking outside or to a dvd is, the waist trimmer makes me sweat in places I don't normally sweat. For instance, I don't sweat below the belly button - just above the panty line. This belt makes me sweat there and just above the panty line on my back - I like that. It also forces me to concentrate on my posture. I wanted to review Leslie's workout on youtube. A lot of people complain that she doesn't give you warnings in time for the next move however, it's just a walking video - You can't do it wrong. You just keep doing the move you're doing and you join in on the next move when you are ready/prepared. I enjoyed this workout. I like the countdown clock, it made me look forward to the 30's, then the 20's and so on. When I got to the 35 minutes mark - I could feel my body getting warm. In the second mile you definitely speed up and it's fun and a good workout. You shouldn't get upset with Leslie when she jumps in to the next move - she's encouraging you to move - so just keep moving and don't worry about - sweat about it but don't worry about it. emoticon I do these workouts with my laptop. I set it on a table near my front window so I can keep looking outside at the wildlife and cars passing and/or neighbors walking - it keeps me from being bored. This workout can be as intense as you make it. I speed up sometimes more than she is but it's ok because I'm still moving. When I do the knee ups, I am constantly twisting my waist and touching my knees with my opposite elbow. When I do the side steps, I twist my upper body at the waist as if I'm dancing and bring my opposite elbows around to the sides of my opposite waist. When I do the kickbacks - I squat more till I feel it in the back of my thighs.
During the kicks, I have an exercise ball next to the laptop and I make myself kick higher than the ball (see it under the table, below the laptop?) Here is a pic: The color may be off because I took this with my cell phone next to a bright window so I had to lighten the area where the computer is so that you could see it better which messed with the colors.
Jim and I used the 10lb exercise ball - we bounce it real hard to each other - trying to get it to go higher each time - it's a great core workout but I can also feel it in my shoulders and my arms.
Tomorrow I'm going to try the beginner zumba video on Youtube

    I haven't found an exercise that I would like to do, or could see myself doing (still Looking). It's great that you have found something that you like, I think that is important in order for you to stick with it. My question is about that waist belt, Does it really work?, Do you have to exercise for it to work? I'm sure it would help. What is your thoughts or review about it. Could you stop by my page and let me know. Thank you, and keep up the good work. emoticon

    This is great! I love that you're mixing it up. I'm going to check out that youtube workout station. I'm trying to get into workingout at home more. This is a great idea.
