SparkPeople Anything Billy Blanks! Go Go Go!! Team Messageboard Anything Billy. It doesn't matter if it is boot camp, taebo or any other dvd of his. He is hard, motivating and...hard (did I already mention that?). But well worth it. SparkPeople Anything Billy Blanks! Go Go Go!! Team Messageboard i have a Billy Blanks Insane Abs DVD good workout good workouts!lov it!getting better and better everyday! Thu, 20 Sep 2012 21:47:02 EST Anyone use the Billy Boot Camp Calendar? I am just wrapping up Insanity and thinking of going back to Billy Blanks' Boot Camp DVDs. I have never used the calendar before and am thinking that this would be the way to go after coming from a very structured 60 day program like Isanity. <BR> <BR> Anyone use it and find success? I will be an active participant again in about 1 1/2 weeks. Sun, 10 Jun 2012 13:04:36 EST Logging exersize in Im doing Insane Abs.How should I log this in?I did aerobics low impact. Fri, 2 Mar 2012 09:27:16 EST Where to start? I decided to buy one of his videos to change up a bit from Jillian Michaels and Kettleworx. After reading reviews on amazon I bought taebo ripped extreme. Did the tutorial, then had a crack at the workout, but the footwork and punches were so fast and complicated I just couldn't keep up. I find his approach quite motivating, but think I may have chosen the wrong DVD! <BR> Where would be a good place to start? Thu, 1 Mar 2012 20:15:11 EST Isane Abs Is anyone doing Insane Abs? I have been doing it on and off for months. My goal is to do it 30 days in a row and Im on day 4.Does it ever get any easier? It has at times a little but then I wouldnt do it for awhile and its just as hard again.Im going to keep on trying! Thu, 1 Mar 2012 11:01:46 EST PT 24/7 Has anyone tried this program? What did you think of it? <BR> I have the Bootcamp Elite program. Is it different enough to make it worth purchasing? <BR> <BR> I love the gloves. <BR> <BR> Thanks Tue, 22 Nov 2011 20:56:26 EST What is your favorite Billy Blanks workout?
