Cardio DVDs

Hey everyone! I am currently working with Leslie Sansone 4 Fast Miles and wanted to find additional videos that are above Intermediate but not quite Advanced.

I was going to try Tae Bo but it doesn't have any instructions and by the time I would catch on to the moves they would be to something else. I don't know. Maybe there is a 'learn the moves' DVD. Anyway, I wasn't very flexible and when he had people practically doing the splits with the top of their head on the floor I was thinking...maybe this is not for me. LOL

Anyway, does anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Cardio DVDs

Hi there,

I do loads of high impact DVDs - I make sure I do one 4 mornings a week, then plus the gym 6 times a week for 2 hours in the evening, so I have to have something thats quite intense in the mornings - else it doesnt get my heart pumping!

I have tae-bow ones but I find them too short, some are like 20 mins long but they are very good, I find these good when I get up late, or if I'm struggling in my legs through doing to much cardio.

I personally recommend Nell McAndrew's DVD's Esp her latest one, it doesnt have lots of complicated areobic moves and is basically lots of running on the spot with arm movements, squarts, lunges and some weight work. Another, which may sound naff or silly but its one of the best high intensity workouts is the original Pump it Up DVD. Althuogh the moves you may find a little more complicated, but if I can do it..anyone can! - I cant stand all these silly dance workout dvds!

Also I found that Sonia from Eastenders really got my heart pumping, and I favor that one also.

Also try the Firm series. I have a maxmum bootcamp one by the firm which is a circuit type work out, mixed with cardio.

I dont know if you have ever heard of Les Mills, or his classes but they are brilliant and I am lucky enough to have a boot leg copy of his body combat, body jam and body step last release, and these are brilliant to do at home, (obviously better in the classes at the gym with everyone else) but if you can get hold of a copy (you can only get them if you are a proper licenced Les Mills instructor) but people have them, and I really recommend them as a good workout at home too.

Hope this helps x

Re: Cardio DVDs

TaeBo DOES offer instructional DVDs that teach you the basic moves, correct form, etc. I am a believe in all of Billy Blanks stuff, as it is total body workout and not just a little of this and that.

I own several and none are 20 minutes. My favorite one is an hour long that I do several times a week. Maybe try your library for a sampling of DVDs?

Re: Cardio DVDs

twblondie....thanks for the ideas! I think may check some of those out! I want one that does not require dancing ability, as I have none! I just like lunges, squats and cardio stuff. I also don't want to have to buy weights and a step and other equipment. I just want to put it in and do it. What would be the best one for me, do you think?

Re: Cardio DVDs

Many of the Tae Bo dvd's are okay! You just follow along and it's not too bad to pick up. Some will be tougher than others of course.

I really like Denise Austin's boot camp dvd. It really gets you moving and is a great workout but I was still able to do it all. I hate the dvd's that you end up lost in it because they are moving too fast. The boot camp has one cardio workout and one where you can add in weights. For a more advanced person, you can do both workouts in a day. I would usually just do the cardio and do my own weights because I needed something quick.
