My Obsession - Body Jam Release 45

Did you think I'd forgotten to keep up the illusion that I'm a mad workout queen? What with summer holidays and the kids keeping me busy (soccer Saturdays have made it difficult to keep up our regular regimen of the gym on the weekend)... how easy would it be to miss the occasional workout?

But with summer vacation comes the lazy days of socializing, and the eating, and the DRINKING (calories, OMG, the calories of those lovely glasses of Chardonnay, Pinot, Pomtinis and Smirnoff Mojito Ready-to-Pour - and me being just soooo ready and rarin-to pour ...). Unfortunately it is also the season of the swimsuit, shorts, and cami's.

Thank goodness the newest Bodyjam release, #45, is the best one. Ever. I don't almost wreck my back over just anything, you know.

I thought I'd share what has made it a little easier for me to get to the gym 2 -3 times a week, even in the summer...

I present BODYJAM 45:

The warm up (it's a long one, but imperative to loose up. Check the last couple of minutes of this video for the gist of it)



Contemporary Rock - Voodoo People - Prodigy. This is my favourite part... it's aggressive and I can pretend I'm ready to rumble...


A little reprieve in the middle - to smooth Dream feat Rihanna "Livin' a Lie"



So here's the whole routine wrapped up in a nice little demo...they're not exactly moshing, but then I don't think they're from Scarborough, Ontario, either... (Bring em out; a little RATM; Prodigy; With Every Heartbeat Robyn S; Delirium feat S. Mclahlan - tiesto remix ...)



This workout makes my brain think I'm 22 years old, when clearly I'm ... well, NOT. Maybe one of these days when I'm half drunk but still able to stand, I'll get my boy to videotape me doing the routine to post, instead of just featuring the more cut and younger instructors pulled from Youtube.

Yah, right.

In any case, if they keep up with these rawkin' workouts, maybe my body might finally feel the need to align with the mind...

I am amazed that you can do that. Actually I'm in awe that you can do that! I couldn't have done it when I was 23!

What? What is this? I've never heard of it. You have this video? Where did you get it? I need it! I want it! I have to have it!!!
It looks like so much fun!!!!!! It would be the perfect workout for me. :)

I hear ya on the drinks thing. I don't know what it is about summer that makes me want to drink. I've switched from regular Coke to diet with my Captain so that helps, right? RIGHT?

I love stuff like that. I wish my gym had more dance classes instead of circuit classes. I'm not a real big fan of zumba.

April said...

I hate working out, but love dancing. I need to get back into that.

Congrats to you!! WTG!

I am so glad Kathryn never heard of this.. I was afraid I was going to show my age with my questions. I LIKE it!

another good thing said...

Oh yeah. Now that's my idea of a workout. We have something similar at my club, except the lights are much brighter.

oh. my. god.
Seriously...am i the only one who got tired from just watching those videos?!?! Obviously things have changed in the gyms since I've been gone! Love that you have the energy to do that....keep it up...for both of us!!!

oh yeah...and the 'ready to pour' drinks...when I was home last time, the "just add alcohol and stick them in the freezer" buckets are what did me in!!! Very good thing we don't have those over here!!

Holy crap! I just tried to make it through the last video with the dancers. I was wiped by 3 minutes and my coordination blows!!
Way to go you on doing this, I am totally inspired!
