Since I like to use workout DVD’s quite a bit for my workouts, I thought I’d share a few of my favorites. I find that they tend to be either really great or really tacky, really easy or incredibly tough. Sometimes it’s tough to find just the right combination. So without further ado, here are my favorites!
Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 (affiliate link) The reason why this DVD is on my list is because it gives you a good structure for a month’s worth of workouts. Sometimes I end up feeling like I don’t have a plan for my workouts – I just do whatever I feel like doing. Some days though it’s nice to know exactly what I’m doing. I’ve gone through this program before and I really enjoyed it. Plus I didn’t have to waste time trying to figure out what workout I wanted to do before I got started working out. Check out my review here.
One on One Training with Jackie. I like this DVD so much because I can work on exactly the body parts I want to. It’s broken down into upper body, core, and lower body workouts. If I’m feeling like I just want to do core work, I can do that. If I’m craving a great leg workout then I can do that. Although it’s nice to get in full body workouts, sometimes I like to just focus on certain areas. My review of One on One Training with Jackie can be found here.
Tae Bo Ripped Extreme (affiliate link) I have to preface this by saying that even though I think any sort of kickboxing is pretty fun, I know I must look crazy and really uncoordinated when I’m actually doing it. I’m not sure what it is, but Tae Bo workouts always seem to fly by for me. It feels like ten minutes after I start I’m already done. Another thing that makes this DVD stand out for me is that it includes weights. My review is here.
Jillian Michaels Beginner Shred (affiliate link) Even though this is a beginner DVD, sometimes it’s nice to get back to basics. There’s almost always a modification to make moves harder, so even if something starts off too easier you can make it tougher. Jillian is great at pointing out correct form in these workouts, which is a good reminder to make sure I’m doing everything correctly. It’s easy to get sloppy at the end of a workout when I’m tired. Check out my review here.
Power Yoga (affiliate link) Although I’ve been using this DVD for years (I think it was the very first one I bought 12+ years ago in university), it’s a favorite. I’ve done it countless times, but it’s still fun to do. I think part of it is because it’s so familiar. I remember doing it in the living room of the apartment I lived in, just on the carpet because I didn’t have a yoga mat. It’s a power yoga type class, which is similar to my favorite ashtanga style of yoga. My review can be found here.
Leave me a comment with your favorite workout DVD. I’d love to hear about some of your favorites.
