I took a little break from everything around New year’s but this weekend onwards I’m back to a rigorous routine! I ate without restraint in the past few days and barely exercised which is why I’ve decided to not cheat at all with my diet in the coming 2 weeks and increase my workout time and intensity.
Having completed Jillian Micheals 30 Day Shred in December, I’m now moving on to a new workout – Jillian Michaels Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism workout. I’m also doing the 30 Day Shred again. So basically, I’ll be exercising twice everyday – the 25 minute 30 Day Shred in the morning and the 55 minute Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism in the evenings.
I’ve done only 1 Day of this routine so far and I feel pretty sore since I’ve had a nearly 2 week break from exercise. But it feels really good to be working out again! If you want to know my experience with Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, you can read my review HERE.
About Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism workout –
This is a long workout (55 min) compared to the 30 Day Shred (25 min approx.). It has 7 Circuits of 5 exercises each – repeated twice during the circuit. It also has a much longer warm up and cool down compared to the 30DS. The exercises are not split into strength/cardio/abs like 30DS, its more of a cardio intensive workout but it does have some abs and strength moves though no weight training. I could only do about 40 minute of the workout the first day, I got too out of breath and tired to continue but I hope to be able to do the entire 55 minutes by the end of the coming week.
Its a little less structured compared to the 30 Day Shred which is more goal oriented, which is why I’m doing the 30DS again with the new workout. But I’m hoping the 1.5 hour workout everyday will speed up the fat loss which I desperately need!
You can check out Jillian Michaels Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism workout on Youtube HERE. I’ll be writing about the results and my experience with this workout after 3-4 weeks, depending on how quickly I see results!
