Killer Cardio

Jillian Michaels Killer Cardio DVD contains 2 short cardio workouts. They are both structured in tabata format (20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of recovery). They both have 4 circuits containing 4 exercises and each circuit is repeated. I really enjoyed both of these workouts. They are not the most intense workouts I … Continue reading Killer Cardio


Cardio Back & Bicep Burn

I am feeling much better this morning so I was thrilled to actually enjoy my workout again! I didn't take Nyquil last night so that wasn't dragging me down this morning either. This morning was Cardio Back & Bicep Burn by Yvette Bachman. This is one of her newer workouts and I knew from the … Continue reading Cardio Back & Bicep Burn

Cardio Kickboxing, Triceps & Abs

I am getting very frustrated with this illness. I can't seem to shake this head cold and the Nyquil I am taking so I can sleep (and breathe) at night is kicking my butt. I love my morning workouts but the past few days I have been struggling through them thanks to the cold and … Continue reading Cardio Kickboxing, Triceps & Abs

10 Pounds Down

Jessica Smith has done several workouts with the title 10 Pounds Down but apparently this is the first because it does not have a subtitle like the others do (Better Body Blast and Cardio Abs). However this DVD contains two hour long workouts: Total Body Tune Up and Weight Loss Cardio Mix. Total Body Tune … Continue reading 10 Pounds Down

10 Pounds Down: Better Body Blast

10 Pounds Down: Better Body Blast contains 3 approx 20 minute workouts that you can play by themselves or play all of them for a 66 minute total body workout. This is another excellent workout DVD from Jessica Smith. The upper body and lower body workouts in particular were tough and challenging and very metabolic, … Continue reading 10 Pounds Down: Better Body Blast

HIIT Cardio/Core Workout

I found HIIT Cardio/Core Workout to be a very tough workout this morning. But I do have to add the disclaimer that I have been sleeping poorly and have a lot of stressful things going on in my life right now so I think that is affecting my workouts. Whatever the reason, this workout kicked … Continue reading HIIT Cardio/Core Workout

Fit Body by Julia: Legs, Shoulders & Back Strength Gains

Legs, Shoulders & Back Strength Gains is the latest Fit Body by Julia workout I have done. I haven't done any new-to-me Fit Body by Julia workouts in a while but I have returned to ones I've already done and reviewed here. However, this morning I decided to give this one a try since it … Continue reading Fit Body by Julia: Legs, Shoulders & Back Strength Gains

HIIT Step/Bicep Weight Circuits

HIIT Step/Bicep Weight Circuits is an intense cardio + strength workout. Because it is one of Yvette's long workouts (71:30 minutes) this can be shortened into an approx. hour long cardio only workout. The first 52 minutes (including the warm up) is all interval cardio. When Yvette has you add risers to your step, stop … Continue reading HIIT Step/Bicep Weight Circuits

Cardio/Kettlebell Mash Up

Cardio/Kettlebell Mash Up is an interval workout that alternates kettlebell exercises with cardio exercises. The workout ends with some lower body and core work using the stability ball. Since kettlebell work is very metabolic anyway, this is non-stop cardio. Yet another workout from Yvette Bachman that I absolutely love. It is more of a moderate … Continue reading Cardio/Kettlebell Mash Up

Bootcamp/Bodyweight HIIT Workout

Bootcamp/Bodyweight HIIT workout is yet another awesome workout from Yvette Bachman. I loved this one! I know, I say that about all of Yvette's workouts but there are different levels of love and this one is up there in the top levels. Just like all of her workouts, this was intense, however, it was slightly … Continue reading Bootcamp/Bodyweight HIIT Workout
