Indoor workout routines
During the winter, and when the weather is nasty outside I have to find a way to exercise indoors. Usually for me that means one of a couple of choices. My first choice is usually running on our new fuel treadmill. It has a high intensity interval training (HIIT) setting where I can get a great cardio workout – without thinking too much. My preferred choice for many days, however, is a workout video.
I know, I know. Workout videos are silly – guys don’t use workout videos, etc. Personally, I’ve had that kind of thinking in the past, and have shunned workout videos. Now, after using this video I’m rethinking that whole paradigm.
Using the video
The first time I used this video (I only have the first one – the one on the left), I was thinking that it was going to be easy and that I wouldn’t get much out of it. Boy was I wrong. By the time I was done I was huffing and puffing, and I had sweat dripping down my forehead.
The workout I enjoy doing the most is the high intensity cardio workout. Basically it takes you through a regimen of high impact cardio exercises. You do everything from tire run, football quick steps and boxing to kicks and leg lifts. It was a lot of fun, and only after doing it for a few weeks last fall was I able to complete it without almost killing myself.
The DVD also has several other great workouts you can do including low impact cardio, boot camp (pretty hard too) and several stretching exercises.
So, check out the The Biggest Loser Workout – it’s a workout that both men and women can enjoy! I give it 4 out of 5 stars!
