I have been trying different workout DVDs, and I can't really find one I like. I bought "Pilates for Weight Loss" from Wegmans, but it's really slow and boring. My skating coach gave me a Mari Windsor Pilates DVD last year for Christmas, but it's advanced and I can't do half of the moves. At least 50% of the DVD is ab work, and while I do want to do ab work, I don't want that much!
The only one I've found that I really like is the bonus workout on the Shape cardio DVD. It's a combination of yoga and pilates, with more emphasis on yoga. It's very well paced, the instructor does each move on both sides at once, instead of doing all the right side stuff and then all the left side. There is a nice even amount of leg, arm and ab work. I haven't liked the dance cardio part yet, but I think I need to do it a few more times so I don't get lost in the choreography.
Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm interested in those 10 minute kickboxing ones, too.
Side note: ELLIPTICAL ARRIVING AT VESPERHOLLY'S APT. TOMORROW! WOO-HOO! :)
Hey! Well, personally, if you're looking for a kick-ass workout, I suggest Billy Blanks Taebo Bootcamp DVD pack. It was on info-mercials and I have the set. 4 DVD's worth, basic training, ultimate training, ab training, and cardio. But if you buy it in the store, say Dick's, you only get 3 DVD's, you don't get the cardio, unless you buy it online, on his website. One amazing set. You get "Billy Bands" with it too, which make the workout that much more effective! The basic training, I can get through about 80%, the only problem I have is once the floor excercises come around, I can't do them all. But great workout, great great great! Only one thing...it costs $40 for everything, but well worth it.
