Rockin Body vs. Hip Hop Abs
Hello everyone! I have a bit of a dilema/question. I ordered HHA and through ordering, it showed an ad for RB, which I thought would be a great fit. Of course, my main choice was HHA and I broke it open and started the minute it arrived (just finished Day 6). The thing is that I am not sure the Rockin Body is quite what I am looking for. It seems a lil too low key and isn't working the abs like HHA does. I can't say that I have done a complete workout, and maybe that is my problem, but I have browsed through the first DVD and have only tried a few lil things here and there. Has anyone else done the HHA and tried to transition into Rockin Body? Is it just because HHA is more focused on what I am trying to acheive? Maybe if I had started with RB first.... It just seems to be a much lower key workout. Any suggestions?

I actually have both programs as well. I am currently doing Rockin Body with Les Mills Pump. I havent done Hip Hop Abs in a few years. What I can tell you is that both programs are great programs for getting started. However, I think Hip Hop Abs is more core/abdominal focused like you have mentioned, whereas Rockin Body is just an overall body cardio. I like Rockin Body because I love to dance and I can kick up my intensity more than I could with Hip Hop Abs which is fun but slightly more structured. I will also mention that Tone and Sculpt routine in RB is pretty intense with the weights.

All that to say, if what you are looking to do is to attack your abs, then I would go with Hip Hop Abs. When you become comfortable with the HHA routines, sneak in a one or two RB routines a week.

Thanks so much! I will definitely be taking a better look at it. I love to Dance (or at least try, lol) so maybe it is just because of my mindset and expecting and focusing so much on my abs... Tomorrow is my "rest day" so maybe I can watch a bit more of it and play a little emoticon

I didn't take the greatest before pics, but I am definitely seeing and feeling improvements already. I dropped 3/4" off my waist and 1/2" off my hips, woohoo! I am very small to begin with, so I am not exactly doing this to loose weight or even inches exactly, just to tone up. Three boys definitely did a number on my belly, lol. I will be sure to keep the address so I can send you what I have. Thanks so much emoticon
