I`m on a low calorie plan and have been doing very well for over 2 weeks now. I work out everyday on the elliptical for 35-45 minutes in the afternoon, and a tape at night. I have started the Firm fat-blasting step cardio 3 times a week, (did it first time lastnight) and I hope that`ll help work my legs. They felt the burn afterwards, thats for sure! On the other days I do another workout video, like a dance tape or cardio, and also strength training with bands and weights 3 times a week. I get in about 75-90 minutes a day and it`s feeling wonderful. The first week I started with just the elliptical, added strength training, and this week added the tapes at night.
Exercise is a HUGE part of this lifestyle change for me.
The step tape has all that you described... lunges, squats, weights... so maybe I`m on the right track.
Thanks a lot for responding!
