I'm really interested in the Zumba workout DVD's - has anyone done them or known someone who has? Were they fun, easy to follow, - AND DID YOU GET RESULTS? Once winter starts, I want to have something I can do indoors that can help mix up my routine in the gym/treadmill!

Just started a new Langford's BootCamp: I have two of my friends that wanted me to set up a workout routine for them. SO i thought, why not just do it together. So I've started.... LANGFORD'S BOOTCAMP!! below is what it consists of.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday 45-60 min Moderate Intesity Cardio 40 min: Strength Training Program
Tuesday: 60-120 minutes of Swimming: We do speed, distance and agilities in the pool. 10 min Ab Routine
Thursday: HIIT. This is where we puke! 10 min Ab Routine
Sunday: 30-45 min of light cardio (walk, hike, bike) Just get outside and do something!
This is the first 4 weeeks of the program, and then it will change. I am going to keep shocking their bodies, so that the muscles don't get used to doing the same routine.
If you would like more information on Langford's Bootcamp or you think it would make a good challenge for the team, let me know!
Well here's my schedule... Saturday and Sunday are my long workouts.. 45 min on the precor machine 25 min on stair master 2 mile run/walk about 25 minutes 500 crunchies then................weight training Abductor 4 sets of 25 at 75lbs adductor 4 sets of 25 at 75lbs leg press (full leg extensions) 4 sets of 50 @ 120lbs leg press (calf raises) 4 sets of 50 at 195lbs reverse push ups 2 sets of 25 triceps raises 2 sets of 25 at 15 lbs chest raise 2 sets of 25 at 15lbs butterflies 2 sets of 25 st 15lbs
Monday thru Friday I do ... 45 minutes on Precor / elliptical / or treadmill (burn about 500 calories). I do at least 300-500 crunchies nightly I change each night focusing on a different body area ie, 1. legs, 2. chest, 3. arms, 4. back, and 5. abs. I do at least 30 minutes of weight training on that specific area for the night then I do a cool down of either 1 mile run at speed 5.5-6.0 or 15 min on the stair master on aerobic setting level 10.
Thats my workout... I also do Turbo Jam 2-3 times a week and if I cant do all machines I want due to too many people I will come home and run or ride my bike.

Today was my strength training day so today I did the following 2 sets of 15 squats using the ball on the wall 2 sets of 15 lunges with 5 pound weights 2 sets of 15 leg extensions in an all fours position... 2 sets of 15 hip abductors, and inner thighs 2 sets of 15 lateral arm raises 2 sets of 15 triceps 2 sets of 15 bicep curls 25 regular crunches 25 side crunches on each side. ( no time to do reverse crunch today, actually i'll do it after I finish this message lol might as well right)
Tomorrow is cardio I'll do the treadmill for about 40 minutes at the highest incline walking between 2.0 - and 3.0 speed... The higher the incline the faster and more calories you burn because its like you are constantly climbing a hill. Its better for my shin splits.. Those hurt so much so i cant walk as fast.. This works perfectly for me I sweat my booty off..
Im loving myself NOW.. Not when I reach my goal.... BUT NOW !!!
I use my Total Body Gym(45-60min)which I do cardio and pilates on the machine and elliptical(20min)4-5 days a week. I also clean 5 horse stalls every day(which is quite a workout in itself)! When I start getting bored with a workout I use different workout DVDs which range from Billy Blanks Tae bo to Pilates, Slim in 6, the Firm, Women's Health and Yoga Booty ballet. Whatever I feel like doing to just change it up for a day or so! I get bored fast!
