Okay so I found that through Tae Kwon Do I had eliminated all the fat on my legs, which is not much to begin with. You see all my weight gathers in my lower abs, my first husband said it was because my legs were long and the food has a fear of heights. Anyway, I used to do Tae Kwon Do twice a week, than tone at home for three days. I noticed my body was toning all over, well not so much the abs, but my obliges did.

A lot of people I have talked to who did not have a background in martial arts tell me they hurt them selves while doing Tae Bo. Another thing to notice is the foot position, see how in image number two he is pivoting on his back foot, this is proper form. Improper form in any exercise being performed can lead to injury. I wish this site had more like this, because it also had an animated version. At any rate if you are not sure you are performing a move the right way pause the DVD, and look closer at the foot, and/or are position. Billy has tips on YouTube for various martial arts movements, this will be a great resource.
So, I have been thinking about which DVD is my favorite, and have decided that I do not have one, they are all awesome!! The clip below is from Billy's BootCamp, Ultimate BootCamp, here he uses resistance bands which really amps things up. Great if you are looking for a challenge, I love Tae Bo, not only because it is a great work out, but it is also great for stress relief. Just punch and kick all that negative energy away.
If you already do Tae Bo, please share with me what is your favorite?
