alright, i'm debating between getting the "no more trouble zones" or "6 week six pack." I've been doing the "30 day shred? and think it's great.. but i think all my excess weight tends fall to my hips and that obnoxious pooch in the front. all of you seem to be pretty up to speed on the world of jillian.. suggestions between the two?
I agree. No More Trouble Zones is an excellent workout - well thought out and complete. For a good 20-min abs & back routine, check out The Hollywood Trainers' "Core & Stretch It Out" DVD on Amazon. The Stretch (40mins) is also excellent - I try to do this once a week and it gives me the energy to do the more intense workouts because your muscles feel so darn good the next day!
6 wk 6 pack has more challenging, more advanced moves, but Trouble Zones is a much longer workout. I own both (and all of Jillian's other workout DVDs) and I actually prefer 6 pack. I'd suggest getting both DVDs & working your way up to 6 pack.
Just remember that, as Jillian says, 'You can eat your way through any amount of exercise.' So you have to make sure you have your diet in check as well.
