Workout DVD Review

/http://www.jillianmichaels.com/
Last week, while browsing the lov-a-lee Tar-jay,
I stopped over at the workout DVD section.
I asked my girlfriend Ann which she preferred, this or
6-week Six-pack and she said Ripped.
So I tried it out on Saturday.
I.
Am.
So.
Sore!
(I think I'm finally ready to try it again today,Tuesday!)
With this DVD there are 4 levels, weeks 1-4
I was doing the 'modified' version of most of this level 1 workout.
I can't wait to do it again {sarcasm}
No really, I feel so much tighter in my arms.
I love her 3-2-1 system
3 minutes of strength {I used 3 lb weights}
2 minutes of cardio
1 minute of abs.
It's a short 20 minute workout but she kicks your butt.
I love that she's an inspirational speaker in some regards too.
My favorite line, as she punished me,
"Perfection sucks."
She made this point that being perfect is boring and if we are perfect,
then what's the point of living?
Always just give "it" 110% and don't worry about trying to be perfect.
If you just give it your all, then that's all that matters.
Be proud of yourself of what you do accomplish.
I knew I'm not in the best shape, but sheesh!
Not gonna lie.
I'm scared to see what weeks 2-4 are like!
I really look forward to seeing results from this full body workout.
Of course, when working out you need to look cute too...
My Tar-jay purchases!
Bra: $16
Shorts: $10
DVD: $9
Yay for good health!!
What's your favorite workout DVD?

  4. Jillian is crazy - but in a good way. I have her Yoga Meltdown and No More Trouble Zones. My favorite thing she says is "Get comfortable with being uncomfortable." Um, mission accomplished Jillian.

  6. I am seriously scared to death of her. Even walking by her DVDs I think she's going to jump off the shelf and scream! I have a biggest loser DVD she's on and I am pretty sure I died and came back to life. They are tough. I ordered kickboxing for dummies last week.

  7. Love doing DVDs at home, in addition to running. They get me super motivated unlike gyms, which leave me feeling blah! Jillian is tough but she's the right person to whip me into shape! x

  8. I like the Bob Harper kettle bell workout but my favorite at home workout comes from the Nike Training Club app. I'm addicted!

  9. I'm currently doing P90X (only because my husband wants to!) but I LOVE Tracy Anderson's post pregnancy workout. Amazing for the abs. Thanks for entering my Gernanium earrings giveaway!
