Beginner Workout DVD Recommendations



Recommended Posts

I have a pretty decent home gym and I have bought a few workout DVDs. I have tried Plus Size Cardio Kick, which is 33 minutes of nonstop cardio. I don't really like it because I find the footwork to be very confusing, and 33 minutes a bit too much for someone JUST restarting exercise after 5 years. I have Jillian Michaels Beginner 30 Day Shred and I LOVE IT. I LOVE circuit training. I feel like I get the most out of the exercise... cardio and strength... and I am not killing myself with 30+ minutes of straight cardio. I also have Total Stretch by Jessica Smith; I haven't tried that yet.

Anyone have any recommendations for good circuit training DVDs? Especially ones for beginners. I have plenty of weights, etc, to complement the workouts if needed.

I also really enjoy yoga, if anyone has some good DVD recommendations there. Nothing too advanced yet. Or maybe a staged approach like Jillian Michaels does.

Nothing Zumba-y or dance-y. I am not that coordinated and I get easily confused. LOL. The only one like that I ever liked was Shaun T Hiphop Abs and I lost that DVD and now it is expensive!

I subscribe to Beachbody on demand. They have such a wide variety of programs. I’m currently doing Liift4 it has weights, cardio and abs and is only 4 days a week. I’m loving it. Just started a second round.

I recommend Yoga with Adriene on YT for yoga. She's fantastic and has been making videos for years so she has something for all levels of ability.

Leslie sansone! Her in home walk away the pounds! She has 1 mile walks... 2...3....4....5... Search her name on Amazon.com or walkathome.com now you can walk away the pounds in your living room. Nothing dancy. Very basic moves. Also search her name on YouTube to get a look at her style.
