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 !!

Herbalife24 FIT DVD Review Phase 2 Strength weeks 9 to 11

July 17th, 2012

Phase 2-Strength-Disc 1 Spine and Pelvis Strength-my review day 1

I watched the introduction video presented by Bob Forster, Physical Therapist, Performance Specialist and Developer of Herbalife24 FIT.  Bob said in Phase 2 strength we were going to concentrate on the load bearing muscles in the back of our bodies starting with resistance training with rubber tubing and then we would slowly add in more weights. We would be incorporating exercises to increase balance and complex diagonal moves to challenge the body further.  So this phase is all about building our physiques whilst speeding up our metabolisms.  As we get stonger with Phase 2, we will improve our muscle mass and our metabolisms will become more efficient and burn calories ALL day.  Sounds good to me !

Next onto the training part of the disc – Tom Holland the elite endurance athlete and physiologist took us through the stretching exercises explaining that we were going to add more resistance to make the exercises more challenging. Really good stretches !

For the actual exercises you can use ankle weights and dumbbells I didn’t use ankle weights but carried on using dumbbells. But you can do these exercise with no weights if you wish.

We started with the dead bug, which was working the core on the diagonal, then partial sit-ups with rotation, which had us sitting up and moving from side to side and then back to the middle. This exercise was good for the abdominals.

Next came the exercise that I really liked and is good for coordination as well as strength.  On all fours we worked opposite arms and legs. Arms with dumbbells and legs doing a hamstring curl, so working on the shoulder girdle and the hamstrings. I found this quite hard work but enjoyable.

We did what Tom called a bridge with single knee extension, found this easy, then the last exercises were using resistant bands – working our hips in 4 different ways, inside, outside, front to back. When using the resistant bands make sure you attach to something stable.

Good exercise routine, enjoyed doing something different, but that’s what it’s all about, changing the routine every 8 weeks, building on stability, strength and then power.

Nutrition – I am using Formula 1 Sport which is an easily digestible and a nutritious pre -workout meal and Hydrate the low calorie electrolyte drink I’m taking during the workout. I will be taking recovery drinks like Rebuild Endurance or Rebuild Strength depending on whether I am doing a strength or a metabolic workout. 

Are you tracking your progress with the Herbalife24 FIT dvd ? A body composition test is the best way to do this as it works out your body fat percentage, visceral fat,muscle mass and hydration levels, wheras an ordinary scales will just give your weight. 

Tanita Body Composition Monitor 

Personalised programs are available if you want to know how much protein you need to take daily and your active /metabolic rates. Email jan@24fitdvdreview.co.uk

Tom Holland’s Fitness Tips on Strength Training

July 8th, 2012

Fitness Guru Tom Holland, Co-host on Herbalife 24FIT dvds  gives tips on strength training and techniques.  He highlights the most common mistakes people make when working out in the gym.

Choosing the right weight is very important ….. Tom says “Women use weights too light and men use weights too heavy. Men want to become Arnold and women are petrified of becoming Arnold.” as in Arnold Schwarzenegger !!

I enjoyed this short video, hope you do too. Tom demonstrated how to use dumbbells correctly, choosing the right weight for your workout, not to swing arms widely and to engage your muscles.

Will post more of Tom’s tips over the coming weeks and of course will report back on my progress using the Herbalife24FIT dvds.

Herbalife24FIT DVD Review Phase 1 Stability Weeks 5 to 7

June 8th, 2012


Phase 1 – Stability weeks 5 -7 using discs 1,2,3 & 4

Throughout weeks 5 – 7 the exercise routines are repeated, but in a good way and I can feel improvements in my posture, my coordination and stability.  I also feel more toned and my clothes seem not as tight.

When I started out I was a bit wobbly in some of the workout positions but now my lower body feels a lot more stable. The lunges and squats have always been ok for me because I’m used to doing these in the gym. 

I know my weakest parts of my body are my shoulders and arms as I’ve never really exercised these (being a marathon runner) but I do feel a bit stronger doing push-ups and planks. 

The low intensity metabolic workout (for fat burning) is very easy to remember and is intended for everyone, of all abilities. Sam says this is a great workout to do with your family, get the kids involved, or husband or  wife.  I totally agree as it’s a fun workout !

End of the each week is two days of rest or a recreational activity, you choose.

Nutrition –  I am using Formula 1 Sport which is an easily digestible and a nutritious pre -workout meal and Hydrate the low calorie electrolyte drink I’m taking during  the workout.  I will be using recovery drinks like Rebuild Endurance or Rebuild Strength later on in the program, when I’m sure things will get tougher.

Herbalife24 FIT vs P90X Insanity

May 19th, 2012

Here is a very recent review I’ve received, as it says don’t compare Herbalife24 FIT to P90X Insanity !

Sheila from Vermont, USA says” I am almost done with Week 7 and can see a difference already in the shape of my arms, back and tush! However, do not compare this to Insanity, P90X or the like. The concept is very different. Bob Forster is a physical therapist to the professional athlete world, including Kobe and Olympic medalists so it is SLOW, safe and scientifically sound for injury prevention. You may think it’s almost too easy at first but it’s based on his theory of “deconstructing the athlete”- training smaller muscle groups that heavy hitting wgt trainers ignore. Great program for every fitness level!”
