Today’s Workout: Total Body

I have another at-home DVD workout to share with you today.

cardioTotal Body Cardio with Tanja Djelevic.  This was my Sunday workout – 50 minutes of focus, toning, and sweating at home since it was snowing and messy outside and that was a much better alternative than slopping my way to the gym.

The workout can be done without weights if you are a beginner.  If you’re more advanced, pick up your 3 or 5 lb weights and use them to add a little intensity to the cardio and toning segments.

The workout starts with a warm-up and then moves to cardio, toning, abs, cool down.  This is also one that challenges your balance.  I really liked the push-ups.  The workout starts with normal push ups and then moves to push ups where you scoop your abs when you come back up and you hold that scoop.  Ouch!

The instructor, Tanja Djelevic is Swedish and works as a trainer/instructor at numerous gyms in Los Angeles and has appeared as an expert on Biggest Loser Sweden.  Sometimes it’s hit or miss with fitness DVD instructors and she is definitely a hit.

What was your Sunday workout?  What at-home workout equipment do you have on hand?
