Workout Updates - The Jillian DVD Rotation


This is gonna be a quick post .The last post I mentioned how I have changed the workout schedule and I happy that I made this change. The muscles are sore; I feel worked and love the pace. Jillian is a true task master and circuit trainings are amazing because you work multiple muscle groups at the same time with zero rest. There is so much packed in the 30 min or 50 min workouts that you achieve more in lesser time.
Trying new dvds to workout at home has made me realize that I like fast paced workouts and circuit trainings works best on my body. Guess we all have things that work for us and some that don’t so whenever you chose a workout routine try everything and when you find something that works for you stick to it.
Just a quick reminder of the schedule

DAY 29 – R30: LEVEL 3 AND THEN LEVEL 2
DAY 15 - R30: LEVEL 2 & QUICK TROUBLE ZONES
DAY 30 - NO MORE TROUBLE ZONES

The 2 new entrants in the schedule is 6 weeks 6 pack and Ripped in 30, both workouts boast about attaining that surf board abs but are not just core centric workouts. As Jillian says there is no way to spot reduce, if you want surf board abs you got to work your entire body and overall fitness.
All of Jillian‘s workout have a central theme of Super Sets and circuit. Super Sets are when you are working on 2 muscle groups at the same time like a bicep curl with a Lunge. The dosage of cardio is quick and intense in most circuits like burpees or mountain climbers. As I reach the end of the schedule I see immense change in my ability to do the different moves.  Also there are wins; stamina has increased and I have dropped 2 pounds on the scale.
In the next post I will update my next schedule and share some of the moves from Jillian’s DVD.
Are them some favorite workout dvds or techniques that you prefer , let me know.

    1. Hi
      A pilates DVD that is on my wish list is Physique 57 . Its a mix of pilates and dance .I havent tried it out ,have heard great reviews so I am gonna try and incorporate it in my next months schedule. However if you are looking at pure pilates then try 'Element: Pilates Weight Loss for Beginners' and dont be fooled by the name its not for beginners
