Cut The Fluff With McFatty Mondays: Slim in 6

I'm so excited to announce that I'll be doing a review of  Lindsay Brin's 60 Day SlimDown System as well as offering a 30% off coupon code to my readers. I've just set it up so keep a lookout in the up-coming weeks!

And yet, this week I'm focused on Slim in 6 by BeachBody. I started off with the Shape It Up, the first of three series. It consisted of 24 minutes of constant movement. The pace was smooth yet challenging. I did noticed a deal of knee pain while doing the variations of squats but I'll just need to focus on form and keeping those knees in good alignment. Within those 24 minutes I burned 198 calories, ramping my heart rate up to 155 bpm during some of the movements.

Now, compared to my most recent workout DVD, 30 Day Shred, this workout didnt require as much jumping nor high impact movements. I did not use any weights yet got a great upper body workout with constant arm movements and push ups. There is also a nice ab workout to move you into the cool down.

Overall, I feel this is a great beginners workout, even one that's challenging to someone who's been working out (cardio wise) for a year now. This workout is definitely something I need at the moment, a plan that focuses on strength training as well as cardio, yet doesn't crash me out after one workout.

The idea is to continue with this DVD for week 1 then move on to the next series starting week 2. I look forward to the challenge. :)

And what about You? Have you tried Slim in 6? Have a success story to share? I'd love to hear your fitness goals as well as how your workouts are going. Link up below to share your story!
