More Workouts on YouTube

I have added some more work outs from
YouTube onto my Exercise channel.  You can see some of my favorites from my post on "YouTube for Fitness" post.

As I mentioned in my post "Jillian Michaels Killer Abs Review," my abs are my where I have the most trouble, so they are my main focus. Of course you need a cardio to get rid of the fat and so off the muscle you have. Which is one reason I love workouts geared for the abs that contain cardio.

So, I found two more videos on YouTube geared towards abs with cardio. The first one is Jillian Michaels 6 Week Six-Pack Abs level 1, which is a 35.40 minute work out with a warm up, and cool down. While it is not the whole work out which consists of three levels it is a great work out. A work out mat is a must, along with 3-5 lb weights, I use both. You can get the 6 Week Six-Pack DVD with all three workouts for only $9.95 which is 71 minutes long. Oh my gosh, as I scrolled down to look at the reviews, just curious, I noticed that they had a bundle with this DVD, and two of the other ones I do on YouTube for $28.91. So, you get the 6 Week Six-Pack, 30 Day Shred and No More Trouble Zones. While the last two are on YouTube in full, I think I might order this bundle. I have had some videos I worked out with deleted from YouTube.

The other one I found is now another favorite, It's done by an unknown, Chris Freytag, it is a 40.02 circuit ab workout. Like Jillian she incorporates cardio with the ab work out. It is called 10 Pound Slimdown Xtreme-Core, it's four circuits, you will need a mat, and some hand weights. This is just one segment of her DVD 10 Pound Slimdown which includes four other work outs besides the core. Each work out is 20 minutes long, hmm may add this to my wish list, for $17.99. You can also find them on YouTube, great way to preview a work out before you buy it.

Okay after realizing I could get other work outs from Chris Freytag's DVD on YouTube, I added some more of the segments to my exercise channel. I added Total Body Circuit oh man side planks with row, Cardio Kickbox, oh yeah.  There is also a Upper Body and Lower Body work out, but I didn't add those. I like to work the whole body whenever possible to save time, but if that is your weak area you might want to check those out.

Oh my I have to tell you about the two I found for the rebounder/mini trampoline, you can read my post on The Rebounder/Mini Trampoline Benefits to learn more about it. I only have one DVD for my rebounder, and wanted more options, so off to YouTube to see what I could get. I love kickboxing, so 10 min Kickboxing was a must, and kicked my butt. I also love Tabata, and found one Tabata work out for the rebounder called Rebounder Exercise Tabata Workout. I looked for more, but that was the only one bummer, guess I'll have to come up with some on my own.

My husband always asks me what I want for Christmas I think I know just the thing.

So, tell me do you use YouTube for working out?


  1. A pretty impressive line-up Joyce. I have to admit I've never thought of looking at YouTube for workouts...feel kind of silly that I haven't. There's bound to be lots of variety (which you just proved) and it's free. Thanks for the tips. :)

  2. Your welcome Debra, thanks for visiting. It is a bit time consuming going through the videos on YouTube to see which ones I'm interested in, but I have more a choice for my home workouts.

  3. Thanks for stopping by today's WOW Link Up. I actually have tried to use routines from Youtube but found it a bit challenging. I prefer DVDs or in-person training. I do use Youtube to confirm certain exercises and to view proper form.

  4. Thanks for stopping by at WOW. Yes, I workout using YouTube videos, It is either YouTube on OnDemand with Comcast. There are a lot of options if you want to get in shape for free. I do belly dance exercise I get from YouTube.

  5. Sheila, that is great you are first person I know that also uses YouTube. Hey it's free why not take advantage of it. Belly dancing!!!! That is awesome, I have seen some of those as well.

  6. I use YouTube when I'm in between programs.

  7. I'm with Debra. it never would have occurred to me to look to YouTube for fitness videos. It is a resource I have over looked, not more. Yeah!!! I am always looking for things like this that are free or inexpensive so I am off to check out YouTube. :-)

  8. Well Susan I'm glad I have given you a great free resource.
