I have a workout DVD library of Bob Harper, Jillian Michaels, Denise Austin, Jari Love, etc, but sometimes I need something different – and quick.
Hulu offers a lot of workout clips – maybe 20 minutes of a 60 minute workout, and you can use it to put together a varied workout. Lately I’ve used it for Pilates, yoga, and abs.
Here’s a trio that provides lower-body toning, core strengthening, and abs toning and all you need is a mat.
Mari Winsor’s Lower-Body Pilates – in these short 20 minutes, you will feel the burn in your thighs and backside. I was walking a little funny the morning after I did these moves for the first time.
Six Pack Abs: Sexy Beach Abs– This instructor on Exercise TV is pretty low-key but I did like the variety of moves in the 10 minute workout. Planks are part of this one. And he showed a way to get your lower abs without compromising your back – it’s at about 4:30 in the clip. It really worked!
Six Pack Abs: Incredible Abs – This is a 20 minute workout that moves very quickly and targets every ab in your pack.
Any workout clips to share? What’s in your Hulu queue? Should we start talking about The Bachelor? Two words–hot messes.
