    How many of you are doing DVD's for a work out , or are they doing there on made up work out , i've just started to do a work out over the last 3 days , as i've seen what happens to people who have lost the weight and not tonned up , its mostly the tummy that looks saggy and hanging , i used to go to the gym and they say if you go 3 times a week it will take you 6 weeks to notice .

    You could try Davinas 'my 3 30 minute workouts', each one is half an hour long one is pump, one is cardio box and the other is core stability - perfect for toning tummies!!

    Hi,

    I tend to rotate my dvd's incase I get bored but I do:

    Charlie Brooks - aerobic workout
    Rosemary Conley - all round aerobic workout

    Mark Anthony's "once a week workout for women" This is fantastic for toning - it uses small weights, and gym balls - great results though...my thighs are now 19" They have never been that size before.

    I do one for the gym ball (I can't remember the name) which is good for toning without feeling like you are working too hard at it (also great if you have a bad back - very gentle)

    I also attend a weekly aerobics class which is quite intensive.

    Good luck with whatever you can do in the limited time you have.

    I like Davina too - you should do the abs every time but the other bits just once or twice a week so you don;t have to do the full hour - I just did the legs one day, the bums 2 days later and the arms twice a week when I started out as I couldn't even get through the minute long hi NRG bits!

    i like the weightwathers one with Clare Sweeny, its broken down into 5 minute blocks that concentrate on a different activity. there is some quite intense cardio stuff but its mostly pilates based so you dont have to hammer it to see the difference. the bonus is you can pick and choose which routine you do and also the length of the workout.

    If Im feeling very fit then i love the ministry of sound ones, those girls are incredible!

    I love Davina, but Ive just borrowed Tanya from footballers wives little black dress, its really good, some tough bits but I felt like Id had a really good work out. Its in 10 minute sections so I dont get bored either.

    I do a street dance class on a monday and then DVD's the rest of the time

    Hi there

    I have used some really good vones from Rosemary Connoly in the past - I bought the DVD by Vikki Entwistle (from Corrie) earlier in the year and now that I have lost a bit of weight I will think about using it - very aerobic with some Tae-bo moves.
