TRX Train Like The Pros

This afternoon, my boyfriend and I decided to workout together. I invited him to do a TRX workout with me so that he can get better acquainted with the TRX. We had a great time! We tackled Todd Derkin's Train Like the Pros DVD. The workout was TOUGH. It had an incredible core component. I felt like this particular DVD was more upper body and core specific, but there were some lower body exercises in there as well. So, I still felt like my entire body got a great workout. The stretch segment was fantastic. I own almost all of the TRX DVDs, and the Durkin DVDs are my favorites. I will say that the Ropes & Straps Round 2 DVD is too advanced for me right now; I'll have to keep working my way up to it - LOL.

I can't sing enough wonderful praises about the TRX. I love that piece of equipment. It kicks a$$ (literally), and it is so versatile. If you're thinking about trying one out, I highly recommend just going for it. If for some reason you are unsatisfied, the TRX comes with a 30-day money back guarantee. Give it a try! It has so many wonderful applications!! Click the TRX banner on the right to purchase your won't regret it!

A Little Kickboxing

Today, I did a brief (30 min) kickboxing workout. It was very effective. I haven't done this particular workout in a while, but I added some TRX movements to the beginning calisthenics section. I will probably do this workout again later this week. I really like Danny Sullivan's Real Kickboxing series. I wish he would make another set of DVDs. I'm glad that the set that I currently have has 5 workouts included with it.

Hope that you had a great workout day as well!!

Revisting an old classic - AoS Providence

Today I revisited a workout that holds a very special place in my heart - AoS Providence. This was the 5th kettlebell DVD that I purchased almost 5 years ago...and it is still a butt kicker to this very day :-) Providence is a quintessential workout that emphasizes strength, kettlebell technique, and building muscular & cardiovascular stamina. It is a classic and one that I need to go back to more often. It STILL kicks my butt, and I still can't make it all the way through without pressing the 'pause' button :-) The workout just gets better with age. I have heavier kettlebells now than when I first started 5 years ago, and that makes the workout that much more effective.

Make sure to check out Providence and other AoS DVDs. You won't regret having any of them in your library. Providence & Newport are still my top 2 DVDs 5 years later...

Lady Gaga - Telephone ft. Beyonce

I couldn't help myself with this post....LOL!
I am so in love with this song and video. There is a dance version of the song(kaskade radio edit) that is in frequent rotation for me right now at the gym. I heart Lady GaGa!!! She is so creative and artistically talented. The video is a bit out there, but, to me, it works!!
