So, if you’re still following along – I mentioned a few weeks back that I got some new workout DVDs from Bob. He was having a special… some friends and I teamed up and ordered a few to get cheaper shipping. Unfortunately, the company sort of fell through on shipping all of our orders! We each ended up only getting one DVD! Thankfully we each got a different workout though, so we could trade them and at least see what they were about!
Despite contacting the company twice, I’ve yet to hear where my order is, and unfortunately – their big sale they were having (at $4.99-$6.99 per DVD) is now over! I guess if we never hear something back we’ll just order again. I’m too dedicated to get THAT upset – since I obviously haven’t been charged!
Okay… all of that to say – these are some GREAT workouts. The “MY WORKOUT” (meaning – Bob’s workout) is fantastic. It has two 25-30 minute workouts, which can be done separately or together. Personally, I wish it was set up with the first one second, and the second one first, like my friend Steph suggested – and then maybe I’d feel like doing them combined. By the time I get done with the first part for a quick workout… I feel like passing on the second part, because the “hard work” is done. The second one is definitely less cardio madness. Both are still great workouts, just in different ways. This workout is only available on Bob’s website… it’s still not available on Amazon.com.
Personally, I don’t think they’re offering it yet, because most beginners would be running for the hills after this workout… it’s high paced, and non-stop movement. Different from his circuit training where your body takes more of a break in-between the heart throttling. I wouldn’t suggest it being your first workout you buy from Bob Harper.
The next workout we ordered will be available on amazon.com soon. You can pre-order it now actually. It’s called “Total Body Transformation” – and he says several times in the workout, “This will be the hardest workout you’ve ever done!” I’ve done it three times so far, and it’s gotten easier every time… like most workouts. Don’t confuse that to mean it’s easy… because it’s NOT. It’s an arm sculpting, rear busting workout. I spent most of the workout rotating between which part of my body hurt the worst… my arms… no, no… my legs… uuuuugh…. OUUUUCH. LOL! I really do have a love/hate relationship with Bob. I keep telling myself that pain is weakness leaving the body… I’m getting stronger. Someday I’ll have abs again!
Side note: Women have to have about 8-14% body fat to see their ab muscles defined. This core strength isn’t about vanity (at least for me, my bikini days are long gone, nor would I go there again if I could – modesty yo!) it’s about over all strength and back strength for LIFE! Being healthy for Him – in every way.
