Review of Amy Dixon's Breathless Body 2

Saturday, January 05, 2013

So I sort of went a little workout DVD happy on Amazon last week, and today I broke open Amy Dixon's Breathless Body 2. All I can say is that this DVD is HARD! In fact I was shocked at how difficult it was. I can run 5 miles like a champ, but this literally left me gasping for air multiple times during the DVD. Side note, I do not have her first Breathless Body, and even ignored a review on Amazon stating that it's definitely a step up etc. Anyways, what I really liked about it was she had a beginner level, intermediate, and advanced and she thoroughly explained each move very well. What I did not like was that in between circuits where there was a break, I can see myself getting annoyed at the "cool down" because it is for an extended period of time.

Now, I made it through the entire DVD, and was spent at the end, but within just a few hours after completing it I can feel sore, almost as if I am getting sick (but I know I am not). And perhaps this is just a coincidence, but I had recently read that High Intensity Interval Training or HIIT can help suppress an appetite, and aside from being SUPER hungry about an hour after her DVD, I haven't been hungry at all. In fact I dished up a small bowl of dinner knowing I needed to eat, and barely finished it. I'm not snacking which is a problem for me in the evenings (working on that), drinking lots of water without really "trying" to drink water. So, we'll see if it's just a fluke. Regardless, this DVD is definitely in my regular rotation, and definitely worth the $19 I spent on it, which is A LOT for me to spend on a DVD! :) Curious to see how I feel in the morning for sure as well!

Here is a link to the DVD in case you are interested in learning more...
