Hello, hello and a very happy Friday to you all! (If you’re reading this post, get ready to feel like a time traveler…I actually scheduled this bad boy back on Tuesday. Cool, right?)
You’ll have to forgive the somewhat scatter brained-ness of this post, friends. Since I’m basically time jumping over three days, it might all sound a little strange. I’m throwing this together on a Thursday night after having worked late two nights in a row. You’ll have to forgive me.
(Did I say that twice?)
Unfortunately, because this week has been so crazy, I haven’t had a chance to snap any solid photos of my food so far. Which stinks.
But I can tell you that I’m extremely pleased that even through the chaos of deadline, I managed to eat very healthy and still get (as of this morning) 4 solid workouts in throughout the week. I took Thursday off because A) I needed the extra sleep in the a.m. from working late the night before and B) my muscles were on fire.
Which brings me to the reason for this post….after all, it is Fitness Friday!
So, for today what I have planned for you is…another workout review!
This week, I decided to pull an old standby out for my workout on Monday night- and I fell so head over heels in love with it again, that I did it for my workout on Tuesday AND Wednesday as well!
It completely kicked my butt, but in the absolute best way. I have no idea why it’s taken me almost 8 months to pull this DVD out of my workout collection and put it back in the rotation again?
I love it.
I know a lot of people sort of see or hear “tae bo” and laugh at it a little bit- but let me tell you something.
Old school is where it’s at.
Not only that, but this DVD (not actually that old- 2010 I think?) is killer. It’s a total body cardio workout of boxing moves, kicks and cardio calisthenics. It does an amazing job of toning your back and shoulders- two of my favorite areas to train, and also two of the more difficult for me- as well as toning and shaping your stems.
Two summers ago, I did this DVD every day for 2 weeks straight and I kid you not- lost over 2 inches from both legs.
It was awesome.
I love this DVD too because you immediately start moving- the warm up is super dynamic and gets your blood pumping right off the bat. I also love that it’s a solid 50 minutes long, including the cool down.
Time flies through this thing, you guys- it’s so much fun! (I’ve done it 4 times this week and I’m still not tired of it.) It’s also pretty handy at relieving stress. 😉
If you like boxing, kick boxing, body weight training, cardio, sweating your face off, feeling like you got a killer workout….or losing inches….I highly recommend trying this DVD. You can find it online here, along with a ton of other great tae bo workouts from the original- Billy Blanks.
I really want to try his ultimate boot camp workout next. 😉
If anyone is super interested in this workout and lives anywhere near the area, seriously, feel free to hit me up and we can get a mini tae bo fusion class together! Yes- I’m THAT big of a fan.
Or, if that’s too weird, if anyone is just curious about the video and wants a full on workout review- I’m down for that, too.
Have an awesome, awesome Friday everyone!
