Okay. For you time-strapped, harried mommies out there who are looking for a quick workout that will kick your ass, look no further!
CORE FUSION – BODY SCULPT is it!
I’m not normally a fan of the workout dvds. But I HAD to share this one. It’s crazy deceptive in it’s ease and simplicity. Then the next day WHAM-O! I couldn’t sit on a toilet without screaming in agony! And it wasn’t cuz of hemmorhoids!
It was because my quads were screaming MERCY! as a result of these seemingly harmless little exercises, which are all small movements, followed by stretching to lengthen the muscles. This stretching supposedly makes the muscles longer and therefore “more aesthetically pleasing” as Elisabeth the perfectly (yes, perfectly with a “c”) toned trainer says. I don’t know about you, but since I’m fairly confident I’ll never fall into the “hot” category again, I’ll gladly take aesthetically pleasing!
I also love it because YOU DON’T GET BORED! The workouts consist of five 10-minute exercises that you can do all in a row or one at a time or whatever combo works for you. I’m a big fan of doing three of the exercises at a time because 30 minutes is all I feel I can squeeze in without starting to feel guilty about all the other things I SHOULD be doing: work, laundry, remembering that I have a husband.
The EXERCISES ARE SIMPLE! You barely exert yourself. In fact, the arm exercise has you using 1 1/2 pound weights. And believe you me, that’s all you’ll be able to handle!
No exercise I have tried over the years has affected me so profoundly with so little effort. Not even the crazy bootcamp lady at the Body Works class at the gym who made us do 500 squats.
Give it a try. What do you have to loose? Besides your ability to pee sitting down.
DISCLAIMER: The butt on the dvd cover above only exists on the moon where gravity is weak and in the waiting rooms of doctors who specialize in eating disorders. While you can derive benefits from the workout, it’s unlikely you’ll get that butt. Especially if you’ve had kids…oh, and are a fan of the occasional cocktail.
