{Day 19} Library DVD Workouts

{Day 19}

New here? Make sure to check out day 1  and my introduction to my 
31 day of Health and Exercise series for the month of October
Thank you for reading and coming along with journey with me
I hope to inspire and motivate you through this series 

Today I am going to talk about DVD workouts from the Library
My Gym is AWESOME seriously I love it
I go to Planet Fitness
It is only 1 minute from my house
$10 a month
has amazing hours
Beautiful and tons of equipment
and the people are so nice
if you have one close to you make sure to look into it
and if you have any questions let me know
anyway I love all these things about my gym
But there are no classes there
it is a ton of cardio machines, free weights, 30 min circuit area
and tons of other machines but no classes
so to get my classes I do at home aerobic workout DVDs sometimes

And the best part is they are FREE that's right FREE
and I can do them in my own home whenever I want
When the babies is napping or before they gets up in the morning
All you need to get them for Free is a library card 
(I am also lucky to have a library right in my neighborhood)

Yup your library has workout DVDS
and not ones from the 80s
they are really good ones like Biggest Loser,
dancing with the stars, Bob Harper
Jillian Michaels workouts, and
even a lot more

My cute friend told me about them
and loves them so I figured I
Love the biggest loser
and they are amazing trainers
so I decided to give A Jillian Michaels workout a try

 Banish Fat Boost Metabolism
This is the one I checked out
my very own class with Jillian Michaels
Pretty lucky right?! haha

Let me tell you a little about it
First of all she kicked my butt
I was sweating like a crazy person
that's is how hard she pushed me
She incorporates kick boxing, cardio, Abs, Arms,
legs, and stretching
It was a challenging but an awesome whole body workout

Stretching- 5 Minutes
workout- Seven 6 minute circuits (with pretty much no resting) 42 min
each circuit is 3 minutes has about 5 exercises then you repeat that same circuit
making it 6 minutes
and you do 6 other different ones
cool down stretch- 5 minutes

Here Some of my favorite Exercises from the is DVD

 #1 The Burpee

This is Jillian's favorite exercise
The burpee is the ultimate full body exercise
There’s a reason why football teams, CrossFit practitioners,
and elite military forces use the burpee in their workouts
Just one simple movement tests both your strength and aerobic capacities
With each repetition, you’ll work your chest, arms, front deltoids, thighs, hamstrings, and abs
the burpee is one of the best exercises to burn fat
no wonder she stresses these so much
looks like I will be doing a lot more of these in my workout routines from now on

#2 Kick Boxing side kicks

she does a lot of kick boxing in this DVD
but I just love the side kicks
kick to the side trying to get your leg parallel to the floor
then tap down and kick again
Love this because it is cardio, and works your bum and legs
Plus I love anything that works my inner thighs 
(Can you tell that my inner thighs is the area I am most self conscious about 
well that and my tummy, but who isn't after having a baby?!)

#3 Plank Bent Leg oblique twists

this is by far my fav of the workout
I love it because it works your Abs and obliques amazingly
seriously my sides where killing me after
ladies this is the best for love handles :)
so if nothing else you gotta try these babies 

#4 Standing Mountain climbers

 These are kinda like high knees with your arms punching up
and it kinda reminds me of climbing up a ladder
I love these because they are cardio,
they work your legs,
they work your abs,
and they work your arms
because you are supposed to punch up to the ceiling
making it more powerful
and working it all

#5 Squat Scissors
sorry I couldn't find a picture of these but they are worth 
mentioning and you will know what I am talking about
when you go and check out this DVD to try out
It is a squat jump but at the top when you jump
you bring your feet together and scissor them 
then you land back in the squat
This works your calfs, quads, butt and 
pulling your legs together at the top to a scissor gives your
inner thighs and amazing burn
 yes they will be on fire

It is about 50 minutes with Jillian Michaels
it is Free 
and it will give you amazing results
try it out
and let me know what you think of it after you do

Here are some more Jillian Michaels DVDs that I want to try in the weeks to come:

 I heard this one is amazing
but I don't have any weights so I will have to wait until
I have some first
but I am excited!

And who doesn't want a six pack
I probably wouldn't get a six pack out of it
but as long as it is a little more toned
or a little flatter I will be happy
Gotta find this baby

Remember your library will have such a 
good variety of workouts for you to try
I am going to be trying some Bob Harper ones too :)

  7. While the mainstream fitness media still insists that aerobic
    exercise is a great way to lose weight, Turbulence Training users
    know that interval training is the better way to burn body fat.

    Still not convinced?

    A recent study published by the North American Association for the
    Study of Obesity, subjects aged 40 to 75 were instructed to do 60
    minutes of aerobic exercise per day for 6 days per week for an
    entire year.

    Given the amount of exercise, you'd expect weight losses of 20, 30
    pounds, or more, right?

    Well, the surprise findings showed the average fat loss for female
    subjects was only 4 pounds for the entire year, while men lost 6.6
    pounds of fat over the year. That's over 300 hours of aerobic
    exercise just to lose a measly 6 pounds of blubber. Not time well
    spent, in my opinion.

    So what's the better way? Stick with Turbulence Training, using
    interval training and strength training to get better bodysculpting
    results. With intervals, you'll achieve more fat burning results in
    less workout time.

    The next time you are out exercising, perform a session of interval
    training. If you are walking or running outside, find an incline
    that can challenge you for 60 seconds, then walk down for 60-120
    seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.

    If you walk or run on a treadmill, adjust the incline or speed to
    safely increase the challenge for 60 seconds, then return to the
    normal pace for 60-120 seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.

    You can also use a rowing machine, bicycle or stationary bike, or
    even an elliptical machine to do intervals.

    But whatever you do, stay away from boring, ineffective cardio
    exercise workouts and stick with Turbulence Training for your fat
    burning program.

    Author, Turbulence Training

    "I'm 25 and was seriously overweight at the start of this year. I've
    been doing the TT for Fat Loss Workouts and after 5 months of
    training. I've lost nearly 28lbs. I want to take this opportunity
    to thank Craig for making your knowledge so accessible and your
    articles and blogs that not only make us think about our
    lifestyles, but encourage us to change them for better health."

    "Turbulence Training makes so much sense and I really enjoy the
    different workouts so never get bored. From an aussie that was
    looking for something other than just another weight workout
    with the same old moves this has been a real eye opener for me and
    I have been telling my friends just how great the TT method is."
    Kelli Tomkins, Australia
