Today’s Workout: Hemalayaa: Beautiful Belly

I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I was doing this in my living room last week:

But you know what?  It was fun, it was a good way to unwind after work, and it was a real workout!  My abs/core were so sore the next day–good sore.

I’ve seen the Hemalayaa:  Beautiful Belly on Netflix but always discounted it thinking that it wouldn’t be much of a workout.  It popped up on Hulu and I finally decided to give it a try.

It’s about a 45 minute workout including a warm-up and cool-down and a variety of cardio and core work.  For plank enthusiasts, there are planks!

It was fun to let loose a bit and dance like no one’s watching.  Well, this guy was watching and tried to climb in my lap when I was on the floor for the floor work:

Always wanting to be right by me.

Have you ever tried one of Hemalayaa’s workouts?  She has a number of Bollywood-inspried DVDs available via Netflix, Hulu, and Acacia.

And Hulu is a great source for at-home workout options.  Here are a few pages to search:  Get Fit, Stay Fit; Yoga for Everyone; Dance and be Fit.  There are two down-sides with Hulu, though–short commercials (I supposed the up-side is that you can take a H2O break) and the workouts aren’t always available – they expire but then tend to show up again a couple of weeks later.

  1. That looks like fun! I like Bollywood style dancing, even if I know I am totally not a good dancer. I had no clue that Hulu had workout videos, so thanks for sharing that info. I’ll check it out by using your suggested searches soon.
