Tom Holland from Herbalife24FIT DVD Demonstrates How To Use Resistance Bands

July 26th, 2012

Tom Holland from the Herbalife24FIT DVD set shows us how to exercise with resistance bands.

You can do an entire workout with resistance bands, they’re easy to use and you can take them anywhere.  By standing on the resistance band you can control how hard you workout.  Just using resistance bands a couple of minutes a day you can work your biceps, back and front of your arms, shoulders and much more.  Why not try this at home, you can even do this whilst watching television !!

Herbalife24FIT DVD Review Phase 1 Day 5 Total Body Intergration

April 30th, 2012

 

Phase 1 – Stability – Disc 3 which is total body integration – My review – day 5

The routine started and finished with stretches.  A few minutes into the routine you’ll need lightweight dumbbells so be prepared.

First moves were squats, then single limb balances, i.e. balances on one leg – here I had megga wobbles ! Best way to get out of wobblying is to focus on one point of the floor.

Next came the squats with weights which I found easy and managed to get positioning right, side step squats where you moved about the floor.  All of these exercises great for strengthening the core muscles, quads and glutes. Then we did an isometric hold (contracting core muscles) and went into lunges.

Final exercises were planks – first the straightforward plank position, working abs and core muscles.  Check out the back muscles of the girl in pink shorts, her back looks amazing !  Then the more difficult side plank position which I’m definitely going to have to work on.

Next 2 days are rest days or recreational activity days – whichever you choose, I’m going walking or swimming.

Weeks 1-3 of Phase 1 Stability is just repeating what we’ve done this week – so my next review will be on week 4.

Herbalife24FIT DVD Review Phase 1 Stability on Day 4 Metabolic Workout

April 29th, 2012

Phase 1 – Stability – Disc 4 which is a metabolic workout – My review – day 4

Now getting into the swing of this routine and concentrating on posture, if you’re used to energetic routines could be tricky keeping it low impact. Worked up a bit of a sweat, great knowing it’s fat burning as this is what week 1 Phase 1 is all about – flexibility, strength and making us better fat burners !

Susan Bowerman, MS, RD, CSSD. , consultant for Herbalife speaks about metabolism

Tommorow I will be moving onto dvd – Phase 1 Stability disc 3 – body intergration – sounds good.

Herbalife24FIT DVD Review Phase 1 Stability on Day 2 Metabolic Workout

April 26th, 2012

 

Phase 1 – Stability – Disc 4 which is a metabolic workout – My review – day 2

Just finished the day 2 metabolic workout and I must say I enjoyed it – it’s very much like low impact aerobics, but the key thing was it was burning fat !  Maybe a bit tame for all you fit people out there but this is only phase 1 and  I know it will get harder as you go though all the 3 phases.

A few stretching exercises at the start of the Herbalife24FIT dvd metabolic workout, then kept up a steady pace going through “fat burning” moves.  Need a solid floor to do your metabolic workout as there is a bit of walking/jogging on the spot, step tapping, knee raising using arms, kicks, footballer player moves,step pushing, push backs and skipping – think that was it !  total workout 30 minutes.

Felt good at the end of it, looking forward to my next Phase 1 Stability dvd – disc 2 – shoulder stabilization.
