CALORIC BURN: As far as calorie burn, like the contestants on the show I wear a Bodybugg (the black electronic gadgets on arm bands) which measures my daily caloric burn. Because of this, I am also able to measure exactly how many calories I burn per workout and how many calories I burn per minute of any workout. This enables me to compare how effective a workout is against the many other workouts I own. I mention this only so you know what I say is based upon scientific measurement rather than perceived exertion. I bought the other new Biggest Loser dvd which is Jillian's "Last Chance Workout" at the same time I bought this one so I was able to compare both as well as compare them to the previous Biggest Loser dvds, all of which I already own. While this had a decent calorie burn, it wasn't as high as many of the other ones already out, nor was it as high as the other new Biggest Loser dvd released on the same date. (Jillian's Last Chance Workout) However, I actually ENJOYED this one more in some regards because I like the fact that it used the medicine ball and bands that I have and rarely have a good workout to use them with...Read more ›
I enrolled in several gyms, and made the owners very rich, because I punctually went once a moth to pay and that was it. I also tried tennis, racket, karate¡K never lasted more than a couple of months.
I bought a elliptic machine (we also have one in the office), a stationary bike, weighs a bike and they are all there sitting in my family room ruining the view or in the garage.
I also bought CDs with sculptural good looking models and guys that looked like ¡§the thing¡¨ from fantastic four. Those guys and gals have no empathy, and think that the people that buy their CDs are professional athletes or dancers. The routines were just too fast and heavy for me, I was done in 15 seconds. A complete wa$te.
If this sounds like you, I hardly recommend this exercise CD (see the picture).
It has something for every day of the month (Sunday is rest), routines are done by real people and pace is gradually increased. You will be able to do the whole 10 minutes or at least be close enough to do it, so you don¡¦t loose motivation. I am really enjoying it. My wife and son are doing it too, we made it sort of a family thing.
If you are good at sports, do exercise regularly and are an adrenaline junky this is not for you!! You will find it too easy. This is truly for beginners who do not have a lot of time in their hands, and want to do some exercise for their health¡¦s sake.
Anyway, this DVD has 5 (five), 10-minute workouts with a short warm-up/cool-down included in the 10 minutes. Tara leads the first Cardio section. It includes marching, jumping jacks, knee-up (low or high impact), twists, etc. Liz and Daniel provide beginner modifications. This is a good place for beginners to start.
Ali leads the second cardio section. I like this one because it includes resistance to get the heartrate up and keep it there. You will need a weighted ball, dumbells, and/or resistance bands. (Daniel again provides beginner modications.) She does punches with weights, side lunges with a medicine ball, squats with weights over head, etc. A good full-body workout.
Sione leads the third upper body section. He again starts with a short warm-up emphasizes your upper body and core. He then uses weights and a large stability ball (or workout bench) to work the biceps, chest, back, shoulders, etc., and ends with a stretch.
Ali leads the lower body section starting with a warm-up and then completing lunges, squats, side, lunges. "donkey kicks (on hands and knees) and ends with a stretch.
Tara and Sione end the DVD with an ab and core workout. Again, the warm-ups and cool-downs are included in the 10 minutes, so if you want to get a constant workout, you'll have to skip between sections.
All three of the instructors are encouraging and keep the class flowing, but there seems to be a "charisma" missing with them that Bob supplies.Read more ›
