I am wondering if anyone has recommendations on a good daily workout routine that I might be able to do in the morning to stay in shape (nothing too intense…just to maintain my weight and muscle mass). I work 13 hour days so I am looking for something fairly short and able to be done in the home. Maybe a good video?
What do you do to keep in shape? Time seems to be the problem for me. My schedule is not stable enough to be able to go to the gym “so and so” days a week.

Bodyrock.tv has a bunch of videos that you can follow! They have a lot of them, so you can do a different one every day and not get bored! 🙂

I like Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD for a short workout. They are only 20 minutes long, so it can easily be done in the morning before you go to work.

I just finished jillian michaels body revolution. Its a 90 day work out program, and all tapes are only 30 minutes each. There is a diet plan that goes along with the work out, but I didnt do that. Easy enough to fit in your schedule, and you will see results.

Get out and go for a run, then come home and do a variety of push-ups, ab work, and other bodyweight excercises. I’d be happy to share more if you’d like.. send me a message.

@Edelweiss: i too say Jillian Michaels. I LOVE her kickboxing DVD. I think its MUCH better of a workout than the 30 day shred. Same format, 3 workouts at 30 min a piece. I also like her yoga DVD. Its abour 40 minutes i think, and amazing.

Thanks guys! I will certainly check jillian michaels out. Looks like that seems to be the majority of these posts.
@BlondeBee: I have tried running and found out very quickly it is not for me. :(. I have had knee problems for the past couple of years due to an injury while working out and it just kills my knees….and my lungs. lol

I really like many of the 10 minute pilates videos on Netflix. They’re not too crazy, but I definitely feel the burn. Some of them also let you choose your level. The best part is that the time commitment is next to nothing.

If you have the space, buy an elliptical trainer. They’re great and so simple to us – great for cardio and keeping you toned (make sure you get one where you can alter the resistance to make you work harder!).

Learn how to dance samba! It’s seriously one heck of a workout, but at least it’s fun. It’s excellent cardio and helps get you toned. Here’s a vid that teaches you how:

I did DDR in college. I bought a PS2 and played for an hour 5 days a week that with 30 mins of walking most days. I lost 12 pounds in a few months.
