Next Generation of DVD’s


Hip Hop Abs

The DVD library is expanding. Just got the next generation of Hip Hop Abs–Rockin’Body. Part of the fun is experiencing the progression and seeing bits and pieces of the Inanity Program. Shaun T is the ringmaster and you see a lot of the same cast. They have cleverly created a fitness program out of the 7 workouts. If someone wanted to build up to the Insanity Program, this would be a good preparation for movement and endurance.

Having DVD’s at home is fantastic, because you can touch into the fitness aspect of your life as an integration. I may not be able to go to the gym everyday, but I can usually find 15, 30 minutes or an hour at home. No driving, set-up time, or changing room just slip in the DVD and go. I like the dance part, creativity with the body, and moving in ways most of us don’t move to make it fun.

I couldn’t resist the hard core series Tapout. It is marked extreme training! Sounds like fun!!!

Finishing Up The First Month Of The Insanity Program

The program lets you repeat many of the “sessions” and as the weeks go by, they do become easier and so you can push yourself harder.  The week coming up is sort of a breather week and then moving on to the next layer of intensity.  I tried it out in my room in Northern California using my laptop, since I will be heading back to India in 2 months.  Wow, this is going to be perfect.  I can see the brilliance of the DVD’s for travel too, so you could play them in your hotel room.

Hip Hop Abs rocks since it combines rhythm into the mix–a higher level of integration to just doing stand alone exercises.  The way Shaun T has us engage our midsection/torso is like a “body crunch” every step–creative and fun.

Starting to add intensity to my cycling time with standing, hovering, and sitting.  Also, continuing with creating ball and cable exercises on the fixed equipment.  I like how the ball always promotes inner awareness and the cable requires attention to detail on the engaging and releasing–there is no point of just collapsing/dropping the engagement  point.
