A yummy blend of story, politics, and personal philosophy.
So, for me, a middle aged woman with about 40 pounds to lose to be my "ideal" weight, 20 pounds and I will be happy with my weight - I am losing about 1 pound a week. The walking workouts are on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, while the strength training takes place on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Am seriously considering buying it but first would like to reach out and ask opinions about it from those of you who own it. There is not a lot of variation on the actual moves, but if you're going to use them regularly, having a variety of workouts help to keep from getting bored. I have many old DVD's many from early I can have a bad hair day, most of my days, and still get my walking in. Yes I love Leslie Sansone exercises.
Re: Leslie Sansone's latest Miracle Miles 5 DVD set offered on the Q
Each workout includes a Warm-Up and a Cool-Down. A countdown timer on the screen displays your workout progress in minutes and seconds, so you always know how much longer there is to go. The first DVD comprises a minute one-mile walk hosted by Leslie.
The pace alternates between regular and fast walking and cardio boosts. Included in this and all of the sessions, are moves which enhance flexibility.
Led by fitness trainer Nick Drago who is accompanied by a team of exercisers, the DVD concludes with a minute total body strength training session using the included resistance band.
Leslie recommends that you do this segment two or three times a week. Lower body moves you will be doing include Squats, Plie Squats, and Lunges. The two-mile walk is led by Leslie who is joined by other exercisers who also participate in all but the three-mile walk which Leslie alone features in.
Going by the name of Belly Slimming, this session starts at a regular pace before the speed and intensity increase. Primarily targeting the core and waistline, you will be using the resistance band from time to time.
Leslie calls this one the Thigh Slimming Walk. Starting with one mile of walking that incorporates belly slimming moves, during the second mile the focus will be on your thighs, butt, and entire lower body. Mile three consists of fast walking. The five-mile walk starts with one mile walked to the beat of popular hit songs. Next comes one mile of Belly Slimming, then one of Thigh Slimming. This is followed by a one-mile walk with Arm Sculpting exercises, then one mile of Fast Walking.
The 1-Year Workout Calendar enables you to track your sessions and know which workout you should do on any given day. It also contains tips for walkers of all levels.
Many who have undertaken it claim to have lost pounds and inches and toned up. Her decisions are conscious. I think in the big picture. She remembers eating corned beef not long ago and realizing the serving was more than she wanted. So she decided when it was enough and stopped there. I weigh pros and cons more than I did before.
