Short Workouts

What workouts do you do, when you have little time but still want an effective and not easy workout?

Like today - I had exactly one half hour to workout after early Mass ( Our Lady of Fatima) and before I had to go to work meetings. I chose Jillian Michaels' Biggest Winner Cardio Kickbox - fats paced kickbox and calisthenics, bootcamp in feel.

So my list of short but not easy workouts are ~

Jillian Michaels' Biggest Winner series - Cardio Kickbox, Shape Up Frontside, Shape Up Backside - all bootcamp style
Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred - any level but especially levels 2 and 3 - circuit training
Turbo Jam Fat Blaster - four turbos, each done low impact then high impact.
Turbo Jam Cardio Party Remix - fun music, high impact danbce and kickbox, two turbo drills.
Cindy Crawford's Shape Your Body Workouts 1 and 2 - weights, low weight, high repetition, great music, great production.
Turbo Jam Kickin' Core - just the 30 minute high impact cardio section...
Taebo Cardio Circuit 1, with light weights
Taebo Original Bootcamp 1
Taebo Abs and Glutes ( ouch, is all I can say!).Joyce Vedral's book workouts, to my own music - Definition or The College Dorm Workout or The Fatburning Workout ( all weight workouts).

I need some of these! I signed up for Wellness at work, but got off track when we went to Aunt's funeral. I need to get back at it. Maybe I can get one of these from the library to try?

I just find that I like to do a treadmill or bike session using HIIT (High Intensity Interval training). For me, it's quick and I don't have to concentrate too much.

I like hearing your ideas though- I'm looking for some more variety.

The library is a great place to trial workouts - and Susan, I need variety! :-)

What exactly do you mean by "the library is a great place to trial workouts"? I'm having visions of you in your most fab workout gear leading a group of librarians and library patrons working out in the middle of the library. Library fitness or bookworm workouts.

Oooh, I love your new bloc olour- purple!

I read a fitness magazine while I biked the other day. If I set the bike to follow a program then I can read- and it helps take my mind off the burn in my legs lol
