I get a good workout doing Biggest Loser 30 Day Workout. But everyone is different. I agree with another post go to the local library a pick out a few workout movies and see what works for you.

You shouldn't be tired after working out, you should feel energized.

I would either check your pulse periodically or get a heart rate monitor (I just have a pedometer watch that has the option to check my pulse, I bought it for $10) to ensure you are in the cardio zone.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

Good for you for making the decision to lose weight. I agree with all the other posts, but make sure your diet is right. The reason I say that is because you mentioned that you are obese, I would focus on lifestyle changes rather than intensity. The difference being is that you can go on diets and insane workouts and lose weight quickly but if its not a lifestyle you will go back to your old ways. If you focused on diet alone, with your normal day to day activities and had a 500 calorie deficit you will lose weight. Now you will lose weight faster by exercising along with the diet but if you try to ramp up the intensity to high you will burn out and want to give up. The fact that you are working out is a major victory, what ever you plan on changing make sure that you can maintain that change for the long haul not just for short term gains. :)

I agree with other posters. It's not so much if you feel tired after but how hard you're working during. Rate your exertion on a scale from 1-10. 1 being sitting still doing nothing. 10 being working as hard as you possibly can. You should be at about a 6-7. If you're under 55 (for male) or under 65 for female and in good health, you can even push it to a 9-10 for 30-60 seconds at a time to really optimize your fat burning results post-workout.

I didn't get healthy because I lost weight, I lost weight because I got healthy!

The TRUE key to weight loss success is educating yourself ABOUT YOURSELF! Don't let someone else do it for you because no one has all the answers! No one! Don't trust one book, one doctor, one nutritionist, etc.

During the workout I feel like I'm doing my limit without getting too winded too fast.

That's what you want. Whether you sweat or feel tired after is unimportant. Just keep it challenging during the workout.

AFREEMAN7,

Being tired after a workout isn't an indication that you worked out hard or perhaps didn't workout hard enough. However, If you don't feel as if you are being challenged by the Biggest Loser DVD, then try something different. You don't have to buy a new DVD. go to your local library and borrow a couple. There are a lot of different options for working out at home.

Have you tried any of Leslie Sason's Walk Away the Pounds DVDs ? Those are good workouts for people easing into a regular workout routine.

How do you feel when you are walking outside ? if you want to get your HR up, the simpliest thing to do would be to pick up your pace and walk briskly. Do you have to walk briskly for your entire walk ? Nope. every once in a while add a short burst of speed by briskly walking for say 30 seconds. If that doesn't seem like enough to get your HR up, then walk briskly for a minute.

Have you tried any of Coach Nicole's workouts posted in the fitness section ? why not try a couple of those and see how you feel.

I have one of the Biggest Loser workouts and it's not challenging enough for me. The dvd is great, but I like high impact workouts. Maybe you need to try something else instead. Go to your local library and see what different workout dvd's that they have, and this way you will not be spending any money. You can try different workouts for free.

Progress may be slow, but it happens!
No such thing as last place only finishers.

How do you feel DURING the workout? are you getting your heart rate into the aerobic zone?

I'm obese and right now i'm doing Biggest Loser 30 day Jump start dvd two segments at a time. Since I was a kid I've never been a sweater and getting my heart rate down always happens easy and fast. Am I getting a good workout? During the workout I feel like I'm doing my limit without getting too winded too fast. Not sure if this is just my body or what??? emoticon
