What You Should Know
It takes more than hours on the treadmill and calorie counting to lose weight. The body responds better to a myriad of workouts completed throughout the week. Jillian Michaels Yoga Meltdown is an intense yoga workout perfect for one or two days a week. Like many of the Jillian Michaels workout DVDs, there are two workouts, each 30 minutes long. Level 1 is for beginners and Level 2 for the more advanced Yogi. If the follower has never completed a yoga workout DVD, some of the moves may be confusing or too difficult. Starting out with a basic beginners yoga DVD may be more appropriate.
List of Ingredients
Yoga workout with Jillian Michaels.
When it comes to working out, Jillian Michaels has tried (and mastered) it all. The Jillian Michaels Yoga Meltdown is an intense yoga workout. Many of the moves require strength and pervious yoga knowledge, so beginners may find the workout a bit overpowering. The two levels included on the DVD should be followed in order. Some dieters may find it easier to watch the workout DVD from beginning to end before attempting to complete the workout.
Jillian uses yoga moves in the workout but the DVD is not a yoga workout. Yoga workout DVDs typically include yoga poses held for extended lengths of time. This workout uses yoga moves in a repetitive pattern to increase heart rate. So, image yoga and aerobics combined to get a visual image of the workout. The Level 1 portion of the DVD is less strenuous than the Level 2 portion. Beginners should always start with Level 1 and work up to Level 2. Dieters with knee, joint or wrist issues may have difficulty completing this workout.
The DVD sells on Amazon.com for less than $10.
- Uses yoga moves combined with aerobic movements to increase heart rate.
- Sells for much less than other workout DVDs.
- This is not a traditional yoga workout.
- The Level 1 workout is intense and may be too difficult for a beginner.
- People with joint problems should not complete the workout.
- Places stress on wrists and knees.
If you are tired of using the same aerobic workout DVD and you want to increase flexibility and workout at the same time, Jillian Michaels Yoga Meltdown is the ideal workout DVD. There are no diet tips included with this workout and weight loss requires a reduced calorie diet, so dieters need to find a healthy, low calorie diet to use with this workout. Beginners may want to start with a walking routine and weight training before starting this workout. A beginner yoga class may help the dieter follow moves with better understanding.
