So, today I went pretty light.  I did a new workout for me, The Firm: Fat Burning Cardio Sculpt.  What I like about this video is that it is only 30 minutes.  Great if you are short on time. Tonight I wasn't short on time, but I was short on energy!  Anyway, it uses the resistance cords.  I don't have the official Firm cords, but you can use any cords.  The music is good, but not a driving force.  Tina, the instructor, is really the motivator in this workout.  The moves are easy and repetitive so it is good for beginners.  I am a total fan of The Firm, so really, any DVD by them is fabulous.

So today I started with Turbo Jame 20 minute workout.  I love this entire workout series!  Chalene is a fabulous motivator!  The music is great!  It really gets you pumped up and ready to workout.  The 20 minute workout is great too because I can get in a quick cardio before doing the circuit training.  The other nice thing about the Turbo workouts is that it is very repetitive, in a good way.  Once you learn the "Elite 11", as Chalene refers to them, you can do the workout without a problem.

Then I did the Personal Training With Jackie: Power Circuit Training.  Today I opted for the 15 minute total body circuit.  What is great about this workout is that it is a quick, but tough 15 minutes.  She starts with the warm up, which I think needs to be a little longer, so I did the Turbo Jam first.  Then, she goes on to the lower body.  You do three moves for a short period of time and then you do what she refers to as the Power Burn for which you do the same three moves without stopping, for one minute.  I really like that she is very motivational.  Her cuing is good.  The counting is a little off, but overall, a great workout.  I will definitely be sore tomorrow.  A good sore!  

Can't wait until tomorrow!  Who knows which workout I'll be in the mood for!
