The first big cold front come through last night, which means I did my workout inside today. I’m not a serious runner, so if the weather isn’t nice (and warmish), I don’t run. So I thought I’d give a run down of my favorite Jillian Michaels DVDs, because a lot of times that’s what I end up doing.
This one is a great place to start. It targets the entire body and there are 4 separate workouts (the first is the easiest, fourth is the most difficult), all about 30 minutes long.
This one is a doozy. Targets the abs, but really you alway end up working everything with Jillian. 3 workouts on this one, runs a little over 30 minutes. It’s tough, but good!
Similar to the ab one, but targets legs and butt. 3 workouts, and these run a little under 40 minutes.
Good for beginners, even if you’ve never done yoga. 2 workouts, 30 minutes. I don’t break a big sweat with these, but they are definitely still challenging.
A step up from her first yoga dvd. Similar format, 2 workouts, 30 minutes. It’s a fun way to challenge myself.
I used to do particular workouts over and over, but now I just rotate through all of my DVDs and then I’ll start over. That way I don’t get bored and my body doesn’t get used to do the same thing over and over again. The great thing about these is that they don’t take a big time commitment and you still get the benefits of working out for a longer amount of time because Jillian is good at bringing the pain…in a good way!
