My husband and I did this workout together on Monday.
I found this video on youtube. Hope this guy doesn't mind me posting it here! Gives you an example of what's in the workout.
Never having done any of the Insanity workouts, I thought Cardio Abs was a good place to start just to get a feel for the series. This series comes with a calender (scheduled workouts) but I just wanted to try the abs! It's a short workout that is supposed to target the abs. Honestly I got hardly anything from this. Because I felt like I really didn't do anything, I looked up reviews on this particular workout. A lot of people have the same thing. While doing the workout I could feel my abs, was sweating and even became winded from some of the plyometric (jumping) exercises, the next day my abs were not sore at all. However, my hip flexors were very sore. My husband said his hip flexors were a little sore, so were his calves (from jumping), but not his abs at all. I understand my fitness level is somewhere around expert. I'm used to using a lot of resistance and doing some mean things to work my core...but I was really expecting a lot more from this workout. It really felt more like a cardio workout and not abs. I probably won't do this one again but I will go onto doing the other DVD's when I feel up to really starting the series and following the calender. Right now I'm enjoying jumping around with various workout styles (I've really been wanting to get back into yoga!) so it's hard for me to commit to just one style. I'll do it, I know I will. But I can already tell my hubby will hate it. He hates plyometrics. Well, duh. Who LIKES them?! I don't, but they get results so I do them anyway. Hee hee.
Anyone else try the Cardio Abs workout? I wanted to like it so bad but it didn't do it for me. :-(
