Workout Wednesday

This morning I worked out to Cheryl Burke's Disco Abs DVD. It sure was a lot of fun to move my hips. The DVD consisted of 5 workouts on 3 DVDs. Here is the breakdown:

1-Workout Disco Abs-Songs-Disco inferno, It's Raining Men, YMCA
2-Workout Abs-That's the way I like it!-Song-That's the way (I like it)
3-Workout I will Survive Cardio-Songs-I will survie, Ain't no stoppin us now, Shining Star
4-Workout The beginner Hustle-Songs-Dim all the lights, the hustle
5-Workout Boogie Buns & Thighs-Songs-Boogie Oogie Oogie, Boogie Wonderland

So, I decided to do #3 and #4 to make the exercise 42 minutes. Perfect timing!

So, I felt a little funny but I kept on dancing. I gave this DVD a 3 since I wasn' out of breath but it was sort of hard to get the moves right. I guess I'm not a dancer. Does anyone remember the hustle? I sure do! When I was a teenager I used to go to church dances. Once the hustle came on, I was out in front doing the dance. I also knew ALL of the words. They consisted of "Do it" and "Do the hustle" so it wasn't too hard to memorize. The only thing I didn't like was that the Hustle and I will survive songs were towards the end of the exercise. So, if you are looking for a fun and exciting DVD this would be the perfect one for you.

For FHE, Adrian and I did Bob Harper's Inside out method DVD. Yes, that is twice this week that I've worked out. I also walk to the library with Eli a couple of times a week. I guess since we are going on vacation pretty soon we are pretty motivated to get in shape. Plus, it is swim suit season. Yikes! I give Bob Harper's DVD a strong 5. It was pretty tough. It was harder than his other cardio DVD I did a couple of weeks ago. But, we finished the entire hour. We may have had a few extra breaks throughout the DVD but we did about 75% of it. There is also a 25 minute beginner workout to get you started. The two girls on the DVD are monsters so don't follow them. Go at your normal pace and finish. Good luck!
