I recently came across a great site for exercise videos. Collage Video is a wonderful site. It carries a wonderful assortment of exercise dvds. They have everything from dance workouts to tougher sweat-dripping ones, such as the Jackie Warner’s Xtreme Timesaver Training DVD. Most of the listings on the site allow you to see the front of the cover and read the back cover, which I think is cool. Then, what I really find helpful, the site provides a clip of the workout for each dvd! So, if you want to know what your are getting yourself into, you can watch it.
I received a copy of Jackie’s Xtreme Timesaver DVD from Collage Video a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been trying to do it 2-3 times a week. I feel like this dvd is a step-up from the workouts I’ve been doing, in terms of actual work. The full workout is 32 minutes. However, it’s a jam-packed 32 minutes. Jackie has you working multiple muscles at a time. I like the set-up of the dvd. It’s broken up into sections or chapters. I’ve been doing it from that screen, so I can take a water break in between sets. The workout itself is pretty kick butt. I start sweating and my heart gets pumping pretty quickly. I almost literally feel the calories burning with this workout.
Surprisingly, I find the chapter for the back to be the hardest. I will admit that this workout is hard on the knees. I injured my left knee when I was really young (like lower elementary school) when I fell down on it going down a hill. This workout will actually hurt my knee if I don’t modify it myself by standing up more. However, it’s definitely worth it. I also found it to be extremely helpful that there is a girl in the workout who does modifications. So, you don’t have to lift weights if you are just starting out. I do wish they gave the modifications first (or sooner) instead of showing the regular version.
This is definitely one of the best workout dvds I’ve discovered. It’s a great workout that gets you moving. Plus, it has some great music to keep you going. I actually really enjoy getting my butt kicked. Haha!
