Move that body: 30 minutes “10 Minute Solution – Target Toning for Beginners”
Guess who went for a run today?
Guess who didn’t go?
Yeah, that would be Mark and Denali running and me, well, not so much.
After my acid reflux issues of last week forced me to take some rest days, I kind of felt like it was a good time to hang up the Under Armor cap and stash away the Garmin. I made it through most of my 36th week. I could say that I ran when I was 9 months pregnant. My last run was a good one – I could end on a high note. And, most importantly, it finally felt like time.
So while they left for a 3-miler, I stayed home (maybe a bit teary-eyed) with Cindy Whitmarsh. She’s a personal trainer and exercise DVD personality and just happens to be the instructor of one of my former (and favorite) ExerciseTV options – Tank Top Arms. While we’re still sans cable and, therefore, without Exercise TV, I found that Netflix has some workout options to put in my Instant Queue. One such option was “10 Minute Solution - Target Toning for Beginners.”
“Target Toning” is (duh) divided into 10-minute sections that focus on specific body parts: thighs, arms and shoulders, buns, abs and power stretch.I did the first three sections – thighs, arms and buns – and while it wasn’t really challenging, per se, I didn’t manage to sweat and I know I’ll feel the thighs tomorrow. Effing lunges.
Do you follow DVDs for strength training? What’s your favorite?
I like anything by Jillian Michaels and, when we had cable, I would do a lot of selections available OnDemand through Exercise TV.
