As some of you may know, I am trying a new workout. I am familiar with the BeachBody programs. I have dabbled in P90X. You may have heard of some of their other workout programs like INSANITY, Turbo Jam, 10 Minute Trainer, Les Mills Pump, Les Mills Combat, etc. These programs are complete workout programs that come with multiple workout
DVDs and a schedule to follow so you know which workout to do on what day.
Les Mills Combat. It is a 60 day workout of DVDs that are based on martial arts. I must say, I am loving it! I was very worried that I would get bored doing the same type of workout every day. That being said, I typically workout for about an hour a day and some of the Les Mills Combat workouts are 30 minutes, so I can add some of my other favorite workouts for the rest of the time. I love not having to think about what workout I am going to complete that day. There is a schedule that I follow that comes with the program.
Things I LOVE....
-I am, and have always been, a fan of punching and kicking. This workout is right up my alley.
-I love the motivating trainers. Each workout is high energy and challenging.
-Each workout has someone doing the workout with modifications as well as someone who does more challenging moves.
-The workouts are different! One day you are doing a purely martial arts workout, another day a plyometrics workout and then the next a strength workout with weights.
-The only equipment that I need are hand weights.
Things I could do without...
It is difficult to believe that I am training to be a warrior when the trainers are singing the workout track during the workout. :) Evanescence and Fall Out Boy are not on my kick butt playlist....
I am already dabbling in the thought of doing Les Mills Pump next. Who knew I would enjoy working out this much....certainly not this girl!
I absolutely recommend Les Mills Combat. It is definitely an awesome workout! It is a great self confidence booster and who doesn't want to feel like a bad ass? :)
Feel free to let me know if you have any questions. Also, feel free to follow Missy-Fit on Facebook. She is a Beachbody Coach and she helped me decide on which program would work best for me. She is very motivating and knowledgeable.
So, if you are looking to change things up or just get bathing suit ready for the summer, this might be a great option for you!
