If you are looking for some new ways to exercise, I am going to do a series of posts reviewing some of the exercise dvd`s out there. I have been collecting exercise videos for a long time because I prefer to work out at home. Paying for a gym, running outside in 100 degree weather or buying expensive equipment just doesn`t fly with me. Plus, it is nice to be in the privacy of your own home when you are literally looking your worst! If you have the self-motivation to work out at home, fitness dvd`s might be the answer for you.
Jeri Love is a Canadian fitness guru who focuses on strength training. She has done some cardio based workouts but they tend to be a little dry. Her strength training is serious and you will definitely be sore afterwards!
Her Get Ripped 1000 video is one of my favorites for building muscle. But trust me you don`t only burn muscle - you also burn fat! I have noticed results after one single use of this video. Supposedly you burn 1000 calories and I believe you can get pretty close to that if you work your butt off! It is 60 minutes and there are options to see modifications in case you aren`t able to do certain moves.
Here`s the down low:
Cardio 1 (stepovers with jacks)
Side Squat with Lunge Back
Cardio 2 (pulsing squat to skiers)
Stiff Leg Deadlift with Reverse Lunge
Cardio 3 (front toe taps)
Pulse Squat-Pulse Lunges
Cardio 4 (up-up down-down)
Push-Ups (70 declining reps--ie, 16-14-12-10-8-6-4)
Cardio 5 (up-up down-down, other leg)
Clean and Press
Cardio 6 (side taps to skier)
Wide Leg Squat with Biceps Curl
Cardio 7 (down-jack up-jack)
Triceps Extension with Leg Abduction
Cardio 8 (football runs)
Chest Press and Chest Flye
Cardio 9 (football runs, other leg)
Abs (lying to stand move with weight, straight leg hip raises, legs in and out, crunch
with single leg squeeze, double leg lowers, bicycle)
Stretch (floor, standing, step)
I highly recommend this video for men or women because it is the best strength training video I have found.
