So I put the Jillian Michaels video in the DVD player and I kid you not, it started to shake. I checked the disc and it was in perfect condition. The problem? Jillian Michaels also scares the @#!% out of my DVD player.
She does this circuit training thing that consists of 3 minutes of strength training with weights, 2 minutes of cardio and 1 minute of abs. And then she repeats that circuit two more times. It was a hard workout but not unbearable. I was sweating and my heart was pumping, but I could keep up for most of it.
A quick rundown of the pros and cons:
Pros: Good, sweat producing workout that targeted most of the major muscle groups. The switching from cardio to strength to abs allowed a little bit of rest before I had to do more cardio.
Cons: I don’t like her as much as Bob, and the example people are two hot ladies (boo for self-esteem). Oh, and when she was doing hip circles they zoomed in really close on the pelvis of one of the example ladies. Really? Do I really need to be 2 inches away from the chick’s belly button to figure out how to do a hip circle? The producer of the video must be a dude.
