Nothing makes me more excited than getting new workout goodies. Nothing! And this past week after coming to terms with the fact that hard core lifting/exercise are out for me at the moment, I decided to see what DVDs I could find to try to fill this void. My theory was that I could easily modify a DVD without feeling self conscience about not following along to class + it’s cheaper than a gym membership!
I’ll do a full review on my favorites at some point but I am excited to give these a try this week and hopefully feel a little DOMS now and then! I just got the order last night but I already had to give one upper body workout a try – I couldn’t resist!
Bob Harper’s Pure Burn Super Strength. I love that his DVDs are only $5 on his website. (I got mine through amazon for $2 more because of shipping though). Makes them so accessible to anyone! I love, love, love his yoga DVD so I have high hopes for this one. Hopefully it’s not too much for this old lady!
Jillian Michaels’ Ripped in 30. I also like her Yoga DVD that I have so again, high hopes! Seems like I will likely have to modify certain moves but I am sure I can make it work!
Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred. This is an oldie but from the reviews, seems like a goodie
Personal Training with Jackie: Power Circuit Training. I’ve never gotten a DVD from her before but I liked that this has 5 workouts that you can mix and match or add to other activities. I think this will come in handy! I tried the 15 minute upper body circuit last night and man…. I am not sure how a few quick moves can hurt so much but I am sore today!
The best part of this whole thing? I got them all for FREE because I had enough rewards $$ on my amazon.com credit card! This has to be a better credit card to have than one with airline miles. You can pay using your credit so there is no charge and no waiting for any certificates to ship or anything like that! (This totally sounds like a sales pitch but really, I just love amazon!) I wonder how much of my money amazon.com has gotten these past few years… Likely way more than I would like
So anyways, in lieu of killing myself with Insanity these coming months, I’ll be checking in with these folks! If I really, really love any of these, you can be sure I will pass that information on.
Do you have any favorite workout DVDs or DVDs you have on your wishlist? I know Sister (and I) really, really want Physique 57!
Until then, Happy #FitStreak-ing!
