What You Should Know
Do you have trouble zones that never respond to typical workouts? Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones attempts to help the follower focus their workout on the most common trouble zones. While Jillian Michaels is regarded as an expert fitness trainer, trouble zone workouts are not a realistic option. The body does not burn fat from a specific area – spot reducing does not exist. What this DVD does offer is site specific muscle training to tone specific areas of the body. If the dieter needs to lose weight to slim down a trouble zone, the DVD will not help spot reduce in that way.
List of Ingredients
Target workouts for trouble zones.
Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones is a targeted workout DVD that claims to help slim those tough areas on the body – love handles and the tire around the waist. The workout lasts 50 minutes and breaks down into warm-up, cool-down and seven 6-minute workout sections. Each section works a different part of the body. This DVD is a total body workout, so follower need to give the body a day of rest after completing the DVD. Exercises are performed at a faster than normal rate so the workout qualifies as a cardio routine.
The circuits included are Shoulders and Legs, Chest and Abs, Biceps and Butt, Thighs and Triceps, Core, Upper Body and Core, Lower Body and Core followed by a cool-down. There is one instructor performing modified moves during the workout for the beginner, but the modifications sometimes start well after the circuit has begun. This could leave the beginner wondering how to perform a lower intensity version of the exercise.
Due to the length of the workout, the beginner may find they need to follow one or two circuits for the first week – adding one to two more circuits weekly until they can complete the full 50-minute workout. It is important to always start with the warm-up and end with the cool-down.
The overall reviews for the DVD are fantastic, but that is the norm for Jillian Michaels DVDs. She does have a series of beginner workouts that may be more appropriate for the true fitness beginner as opposed to the Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones. The dieter will need to start a weight loss program with low calorie diet when following this DVD workout for weight loss.
