Any1 tried the Tae-Bo Ab Bootcamp?

If you have not and you need something new and different then go to youtube and try one of these videos, they are GREAT!! I like to change things up and i been doing tae bo online but i thought i would try the ab boot camp one and OMG im sweating so much!! I love Billy Blanks hes learned how to put all those fancy crunch movements  into a standing up postion, thats the best part i hate getting on the floor!! And he knows you gets cramps so he always does a move then says ok walk it out!! Any who just offering some advice to any1 looking to change things up a bit or give a whirl to something new!!!

I have that exact video, too! We're like Workout Twins, you and I.

That one seriously kicks my butt. I can't even finish the entire thing and I feel like Jell-O afterwards. I should break it out and do it today. I'm letting my lunch digest a little bit first, though. Will update on how it goes this time around! Maybe I'll be able to do most of it now that I have more endurance, stamina and strength.

WOW I never saw these before just watched them -  WOW -  gonna hurt but Im gonna give it a go I hate doing AB work on the floor.

The only thing  didn't like is his videos are full of VERY fit, VERY tonned and it is a litle off putting -  I like to see varying degrees of fitness on a video so I don't feel quite so inadequate lol.

I have the entire AB Bootcamp video and it's 35 minutes of INTENSITY! AHhhhhhh!

Okay so I did most of it yesterday. There were a few I couldn't do because I have hardwood floors and I don't want to hurt myself.

I actually don't feel it in my abs (my abs are pretty strong but the skin is the problematic part because of having babies). But I feel it in my back muscles! Which is amazing because it's hard to get a good workout for your back.

Wow do I love seeing the exercise posts and the encouragement.  Have realized, in trying to work out at home, that it takes a little more room than I have available sometimes and I'm always hitting into something!  

My daughter just took the extra bedroom set from upstairs so think I may have to move things around and see if I can make a workout room up there .. then we'll see how much the chandelier downstairs swings .. lolll

Great job!
