I hope you all had a really wonderful and happy weekend! Both my girls were a little under the weather with colds so we had a quiet weekend. I’m actually looking to get them outside a bit more today as they just wanted to hang around the house all weekend. It starts to make me feel a little crazy.
Anyway, as I was stuck inside I had time to review a few YouTube workout videos! Not as fun as getting out and going for a run or working out outdoors, but still sometimes you’ve got to make do!
I thought I’d share this one with you as it was decent- both in time and in making you feel as though you’ve “worked out.” I was really craving some cardio, I find it hard to find good cardio workouts that don’t make you feel like you’re going to cause an earthquake or take up loads of room that you don’t have.
30 minute cardio- The CafeMom Studios Workout was about 20 minutes of cardio and 10 minutes of stretching. Not the most hardcore workout you’ll ever do, but it definitely had you working hard for the 20 minutes. There was little to no repetition, they moved through the moves, so to speak and didn’t go back. I like that, as I get bored, especially if I go back and do the workout again anytime soon.
It was actually fairly advanced in lots of the moves and there was a lot of high impact jumping around. One of the assisting instructors did low impact versions of the workout the entire time, which would be really helpful if you were unable to complete the high impact versions.
The stretching at the end was really nice! Stretching just feels so good and I think so few of us actually take those ten minutes after every workout to really stretch. It feels so indulgent!
I think the workout would be a perfect “before work” workout, or quick “while your baby is asleep” workout. Sometime it is not practical to do 45 + minutes working out. But most of us can find a half hour to squeeze in some training.
Have you ever tried any of The CafeMom Studios Workouts? What did you think? Do you ever try workout
videos DVDs? Or are you curious to try any current workout DVDs?
