Happy Friday! Sorry this post is going up a little later than normal, I had a few technical difficulties this morning! But I did think it would be fun to bring back my Friday Favorite posts – what do you think? I love blogging my Friday Favorites & I hope you enjoy reading them!
For this week’s favorites, I wanted to share with you my favorite workout books & DVD’s
With it being the new year and most people have resolutions to hit the gym a little more I wanted to share with you what I use for extra motivation when I can’t get to the gym or I just want to switch up my workouts.
First up is the KettleWorx program – this was sent to me to review on the blog. I really enjoy the videos since they all incorporate the kettlebell, which is a great tool for getting your sweat on. I have the Kettleworx Ultra 10 DVD set and it comes with a ton of different workout options & each DVD focuses on a different body area to really get moving – it’s a great workout for sure!
The Shape up with Karina Smirnoff DVD was sent to me as well, this is just something that is a really different workout from everything I usually do. When I want to dance around, get my heart rate pumping & have some fun, this is the DVD I watch – because, let’s be honest, who doesn’t want Karina Smirnoff’s body??
I also love my Wii Fit – its not something I do for a real workout but its definitely something different & fun to play around with. I always laugh when you get on the “scale” at the beginning of the program – it always makes an “OOooohh” sound, likes its mocking me. I hate it, but I love it too.
I have shared with you my love for all things Jillian Michaels before. Her screaming at me from the television screen just gets me moving! I love it! I am a big fan of her 30 Day Shred as well as her 6 Week Six-Pack programs. Both are booty kicking awesome!
It’s no secret that I am a big fan of the Biggest Loser and The Biggest Loser Power Sculpt is another awesome DVD that I love. Yes, it has my girl Jillian Michaels but also has workouts with Bob Harper & Kim Lyons – I really love the variety of workouts offered within the DVD.
Now, onto the books! I am obsessed with The Women’s Health Big Book of Exercises its such a great & informative read. I have blogged about this amazing book on the blog before and I just can’t get enough of it.
It has everything you need listing out specific workouts for specific things – I used The Wedding Workout as a part of my bridal bootcamp!
The best 15 minute workout is another great thing to use when you are crunched for time & need to get a little sweat session in!
The book breaks down workouts by different body part focuses. I love the Glute & Hamstrings as well as the Core workout options the most!
The book also really breaks out the moves & gives you a really details look into what each move should look like as well as examples of proper form.
Finally, I also wanted to share my love for 2 other Jillian Michaels books – sense a theme??
So there you have it, some of my favorite workout books & DVD’s – a little Jillian Michaels heavy at times, but hey, I find her interesting!
Now its your turn – What are Your favorite workout books & DVDs?!
