Do you use workout DVDs?

I own a lot of them but I don’t use them often, lol. 

 

The two I’d recommend are not inexpensive but they’re great overall workouts. 

 

Brazilian Butt Lift (this thing works your whole body not just your butt)

Insanity

I use mine daily. I have aerobics, step-aerobics, stability ball, kettle bells, circuit-training, core fusion, yoga, pilates, etc. I LOVE’em!  I have a DVD to match my energy level and the amount of time I have to work out on any given day. Collage Videos has a web site where you can see preview clips and see customer reviews to help you choose.

I’ve tried p90x.  Although it works, it was far too time-consuming for me.  Over an hour, 6 days a week. Not that an hour is terribly long to do a workout, but videos get so boring. 

I dislke Jillian Michaels, she annoys me! However, I love her 30 day shred video.  It’s 27 minutes a day.  I burn between 180-300 calories (according to my HRM) and it’s something I don;t mind doing 6-7 days a week.  I’ve definitely seen improvement in my arms.  The videos are less than $10 too!

Yeah i want to punch jillian michaels in the face, but her workouts are amaze, i did ripped in thirty and i lost a heap of weight, and toned nicely. It was really good for the time you put into it. :)

I feel like the only person on the planet who does not get any results on 30DS! Even when counting calories/weighing my food.

I am doing Turbo Fire and I’m not hating it. It’s a bit long for me too, sometimes up around an hour. Turbo Jam is a bit shorter/nicer, but easier which is not necessarily what you want.

No, I have no coordination watching the tv and trying to do what they are doing…. the only thing I’ve managed to do is the shake weight.

Yessss. I love my 30DS video. She’s really annoying in level 1, but she gets funny in level 2. I was going to buy her yoga DVD today, but the store didn’t have it, boo.

I also have a video called Bollywood Booty that I’ve only tried a couple of times. It’s 45 minutes, and I’ve only ever made it through 15 minutes.

Yes.  I love them.  My favorites are all Jillian Michaels’.  Try No More Trouble Zones for toning (it rocks!).  I also really like Killer Buns and Thighs. It made that blob of fat at the top of my thighs disappear.  Seriously.  I’ll even wear short shorts and miniskirts now.

I just bought Jillian Michaels 30 day shred, it has loads of reviews so I’m hoping for good results

I also have a few of the Ten Minute Solutions fitness dvd’s: three of the pilates ones (really like), the five day fitness (mostly good except I do not have the coordination for the cardio kickboxing, litterally just flail around) and then the ultimate bootcamp one (which is horrific!)

I try to mix it up, so do two of the bootcamp ten minute routines and two or three of the pilates ten minute routines on one day, then something else on another day

I also have Ana Caban’s Pilates dvd (intermediate) and a Stott Pilates dvd

And Tracy Anderson’s matt workout, which I havent done in ages as got bored of both the dvd and I find her rather annoying

I’ve got the Brazilian Butt-Lift, it’s not bad.  Have Zumba videos, which are fun.  I also have some Bellydancing videos, but they’re hardly high-intensity. 

I also have Insanity! And it is kind of insane.  Very high-intensity cardio, but the people who’ve stuck with it seem to have gotten really good results.

I used to watch the shows with Gilad on FitTV, and thought they were great.  He had a great cardio show, and a body sculpting one that incorporated weights, and other things.  I found him extremely charming, and had an easier time sticking with it, because he seemed like such a sweet guy, he even had his mom on there for a few episodes of the cardio show.  He has “Bodies in Motion,” that can be purchased.

I use P90x 6 days a week and I love it. It’s my third round of it and I never get sick of it and I always see a huge difference when I’ve used it! It has a mix of cardio and sculpting/toning. I started it again for my wedding to tone my arms back up and I noticed within the first week of using it that my arms are toned. I highly recommend it!
