Killer Buns & Thighs (Day 1)
I finally started Jillian Michael’s KB&T today. There are 3 levels of difficulty, each level is about 30-35 minutes. I’ve looked up how many calories are burned doing this workout. It varies by how much you weigh as well as how much intensity you bring to the workout. I’ve seen anything from 200-600 calories burned from various people doing this DVD.
I am going to do each level for a week, for a total of 3 weeks. I have my “before” measurements and pictures and will remeasure and take after pictures. I dunno if I’ll be posting pictures (lol), but I’ll definitely post about the results at the end of the 3 weeks.
Okay, so Level 1… I literally JUST finished and my initial thoughts are that level 1 is very much for beginners. It DID get my heart rate up a little with the cardio and it DID cause some burning in my quads… and it also challenged my balance with the single leg exercises. I skimmed through level 2 and it looks much more challenging. Don’t get me wrong! Level 1 is a GREAT starting point & is good for toning up & getting the heart rate up. If you’ve never done a JM workout or are just starting to work out, definitely begin with level 1. But personally, for me, I’m looking forward to level 2 right now!
And who knows? I might be feeling a LOT more sore than I think I will in the morning haha 🙂 If you’ve done this workout, post below letting me know what you think!
In the meantime, I’m pumped enough to get some mat pilates in! Until next time…
[9/17/2011] EDITED TO ADD: Level 1 leaves me out of breath & my legs shaky, but I still would LOVE more of a challenge. So I’ve been doing Level 1 of KB&T, and then adding THIS POP Pilates Glutes video as well. This combination has been awesome! If Level 1 is not challenging enough for you, but you want to do it for a full week, I would add something like this pilates video to it. Feel the burn!!! 🙂
