Ever since flu season hit and I developed a cold, my workouts have not been the same. I have not had the energy or the determination to get back to my regular routine. My excuse is that I do not want to wear myself out and get sick again (I know it is possibly the worst excuse ever). Finally, I have found a workout that has inspired me to get back to into shape. Occasionally, I will check out the BeFit YouTube channel when I get tired of using the treadmill or my other workout DVDs. The video below called Total Body Weight Loss (Level 1). It made me sweat more in twenty minutes than I sweat when I am running on the treadmill for forty five minutes. This workout is the perfect combination of intense cardio with breaks in between to catch your breath. Lately, I have heard health experts on the radio talk about doing spurts of intense exercise then resting for a small amount of time because that gets the heart rate pumping and causes muscle confusion within one workout. Check out this video and let me know what you think!
Denise Austin always has great workout videos that are comprehensive and easy to follow. Her videos are great for beginners. For those that are more advanced, adding weights and doing the moves at a faster rate will help intensify the workout.
Quick Burn Cardio is one of my favorite videos by Denise Austin. In my opinion, it is one of her harder videos because you really do break a sweat. Whether you are doing the interval training or the cardio weight training, you will feel the burn. By combining both workouts you will see dramatic results.
For beginners, I suggest starting off the first few days with the interval training. The interval training requires no weights but a lot of lunges, kicks, and squats are involved. The next few days do the weight training segment. After a week and a half try putting both workouts together for an extreme calorie blast.
