I mean really, how can you go wrong with a stronger more toned midsection? Aside from its obvious aesthetic appeal, a strong core will make me stronger overall and this will definitely help me as a runner. Bonus!!
Here's the plan: Fit the DVD into at least 3 workouts a week for the next 6 weeks. Track my progress with photos and see what happens. Easy, peasey!
Now I'm no fool. I know that a few 30 minute workouts a week isn't going to get me the defined tummy I so desire. In the mix I am also running (4 or 5 days), spinning (1 day), doing Tabata (1 day) and yoga (1 day). On top of that I plan to continue eating healthy and wholesome food and drinking boat loads of water. (Boat loads of water might be a bad thing when I think about it...if waters in the boat then the boat must have sunk right?!)
I did the workout tonight for the first time. If you are familiar with Jillian Michaels you know she's tough and this circuit is no exception. Incorporating heart pumping cardio (burpees...eeek!!) with standing and seated abdominal work, she helps you work up a sweat in speedy half hour session. The DVD also includes 2 workouts; Beginner and Advance so once you master the first level there's a whole other set of torture waiting for you.
All and all I like it and I am interested to see the results. Stick with me as I plan to post weekly updates in a new section. And hey, why not join me in the challenge while you're at it? Leave me a comment if you want in on all the fun and I will add a link to your page in my next post.
So tell me, do you incorporate fitness DVDs in your routine? If so, which ones do you recommend? And do you plan to join me in this challenge?
