Workout DVD that works!

I've been looking for a work out to do on my non running days. Something I can do while the lil guy is napping. 

I found it my friends.

Billy Blanks Ultimate Boot Camp. Ouch! "Designed for those who have already achieved a certain level of physical fitness, Billy Blanks: Billy's Boot Camp -- Ultimate Boot Camp features the Tae Bo instructor leading the viewer through a variety of exercises designed to strengthen muscles and burn fat."
Kinda cheesy, but I've seen and heard of this workout DVD, then my friend recommended it... so I thought I'd give it a try. Seriously, its no joke! I'm so impressed. It kicks my butt. The day after the first time I did it I was so sore I felt sick. The sorest I've been since weight lifting in my college track days. Its a great strength training workout that focuses on the butt, quads, hamstrings, core, and arms. Its made my running days hard because my legs have been toast! 

Has anyone tried it? Feed back? I'm now a fan!


  1. girl you HAVE to try Jari Love (that's her name) "Ripped 1000" and "Ripped to the core". The girls in a cafemom group I'm in just raved about it and had amazing results so I tried it for myself, and holy moly she kicked my butt!! I use them as crosstraining for running, the videos are amazing!

  2. Woo hoo! You're doing Tae Bo! That is one of my fav sets...I love Tae Bo. You should get the T3's his newest one.

  3. LOVE, LOVE Tae bo!! The only thing I don't like is that most of the videos are about 45 minutes, which makes for a GREAT wokout, but is sometimes just too long for a mommy who is trying to work around her kids' and hubby's schedules. 30 minutes would work better for me, or something like running with the jogging stroller, so I can take my daughter with me.
