Here is what I’ve noticed personally while using this product: I started taking this twice a day when I began eating cleaner (10 days and counting!) and adding cardio into my daily routine. I don’t feel like I NEED soda or desserts like I normally do when trying to eat cleaner, so the sugar cravings are much less. I have already noticed a big difference in seeing fat disappear & seeing more visible muscle tone, especially in my tummy! YAY abs!!! I can’t WAIT to see the results after 30 days.

My Pilates Routine (Lower Body)

I do a pilates routine 3-4 times per week & most of it is the 10-20 minute videos from Cassey at Blogilates (workout videos found HERE.)

This doesn’t include any extra cardio I do through the week, any weight/strength training I do throughout the week or any gymnastic-type strength stuff on the pole throughout the week–this is JUST my pilates.

I sort of create my own circuit workout by jump roping between each pilates video. I’ve found that jump roping burns the MOST calories–it cost next to nothing and it’s EFFECTIVE. {{You can find a calorie calculator online to see how much you’d burn by putting in your weight & how many minutes of jump roping. Another way to figure out calories burned is to buy a calorie monitor.}}

Anyway! Here is an example of my Lower Body Pilates workout. During EVERY pilates workout, I do a lot of core work regardless of my upper body/lower body focus. I also always work in some sort of cardio. This particular example below gives me 10 minutes of cardio with jump roping (burning about 100 calories at my weight), and 50 minutes of Pilates, giving me about an hour of a workout total. {{If you DON’T incorporate cardio or cut out processed junk foods from your diet, you won’t ever see all the lovely muscle you build underneath the layer of fat! Cardio & proper diet is a MUST if you want to see your hard work!!!}}

TRY IT! All you need is a little bit of floor space and some motivation! Let me know what you think when you’re alllll done! 😉

Cardio and Jillian, my nemeses!

I can do strength & resistance training aaaalll daaaayy loooong. I love it! I love the burn & building strength!

Cardio, on the other hand, I loathe. My endurance is generally NOT my strong point. But cardio is a VITAL part of staying fit. I’ve been skimping on doing any cardio regularly lately, so I’m going to incorporate Jillian Michaels DVD’s into my workouts. She generally has had a good combination of cardio & strength.

I’m starting 30 Day shred again–doing that DVD for a week, then on September 6th I’m getting her latest DVD (Killer Buns + Thighs) to check it out…as long as it has some decent cardio circuits I’ll do that for 30 days.

I’ll take some before and afters, like I did with 6 week 6 pack…and I’ll review KB&T after I’ve completed it, in the meantime here is a 4 minute preview!
