Starting my journey
11/25/12 5:41 PM
Today I ordered the Hip Hop Abs workout program. I had originally hoped to get P90X but my dad wants me to start of on something less expensive so that I can show commitment. I love dancing, but I don't feel comfortable taking classes at the gym because I'm so self-conscience. I really hope I am able to stick to this and finally be happy with who I am!

Great for you. This a great started program. You can kick but at this than move on to P90X. Good luck to you. Let me know if you have any questions or need anything.

I have an accountability group you can join that helps with motivation.

Let me know.

Hi!

Congrats on starting your fitness journey. I've done Hip Hop Abs and it is really fun. Shaun T. is hilarious! It definitely helps you tighten your core. Once you finish HHA, it will be that much easier to jump into P90X.

Good luck! Keep us posted on your progress.

Health & Happiness,
Andi :-)

Hi,
I'm on my fourth day of Hip Hop Abs, I really enjoy the workout. Yesterday
Was my first day of the Ab workout rather than the cardio, talk about intense.
I think I'm really going to see some great results, I can definitely feel my abs
Shoulders, even my legs. I am using the weighted gloves as well. Love to chat
With you anytime. It helps to have someone else working out with you and helping
Motivate you.

@nikrapz That's awesome, I really think the weighted gloves is already toning my arms and today will only be day 6 for me! Excited for you, I know how I was waiting for my package to arrive. I felt a little clumsy on day 1, make sure you WATCH not participate the AB scult cd BEFORE you do your first day Cardio workout. He teaches you all the proper techniques and moves that you will be using in the cardio workout. I didn't know that I was suppose to watch the first 2 part of the ab sculpt cd before the first day cardio workout cause I was so excited to jump in and try. It left me very confused, I finally figured out what happened on day three when I did the AB sculpt.

@StaceyS74 Hi Stacy,
Congratulations on taking the big jump into exercise emoticon It's definitely new to my sore body haha. It feels good though and I feel great about continuing to do it every day. Hip Hop ABS is hard but not to hard to discourage you. I found it actually got harder throughout the week as I am finally learning how to do the moves properly and when you do that you feel your muscles working the whole time so its more strenuous but not so much so that you are left sore and discouraged. I can feel my muscles but im excited to do the next days workout!
I'm going to give you the same advice a gave another member who is waiting for her program to arrive to try to help you avoid the same mistake I made. make sure you WATCH not participate the AB scult CD BEFORE you do your first day Cardio workout. He teaches you all the proper techniques and moves that you will be using in the cardio workout. I didn't know that I was suppose to watch the first 2 part of the ab sculpt cd before the first day cardio workout cause I was so excited to jump in and try.

Enjoy HHA everyone! It is a really fun program. I'm looking forward to doing it again after baby #3 is born. I'll need to tighten my abs back into shape!

I can't wait to hear how you are all doing. :-)

@StaceyS74
The Cardio workout is about 28 min long, I know it doesn't seem like a long time but you are ready to stop and sweating when its all said and done. The Ab Sculpt is 25 min I think and even more difficult to do. The first week you only do one cd a day for 6 days break on the 7'th. Then the second week the work you up to doing 2 CD's a day. I have a feeling it is going to be challenging but I know that I will be able to do it. I'm already feeling so much stronger!

If you can get through one workout then you can get through many more. Just remember the same drive & motivation you used for your first & keep that for all that are to come emoticon

I just started the program. Saturday I did fat burning cardio and cardio groove. I also took the cardio groove challenge. Sunday I just did the fat burning cardio. Those were just practice days to learn the moves. I started the actual month challenge today with fat burning cardio, cardio groove and cardio groove challenge.

I should start by giving a little background about myself. Last April I weighed 228 lbs.. I walk w/weights twice a day. I started off with sweatin' to the oldies 1 2 3 4 5 the 70's and the 80's. I then moved on to insanity. I hurt my knee in week 2 and I pushed myself to keep going through week 4. I stopped insanity and did the slim in 6 program. I tried zumba exhilarate for 2 weeks but didn't care for it. Now here I am starting hip hop abs and weighing 163 lbs.. I LOVE IT! I've missed Shaun T. so much. I know working out shouldn't seem like this much fun but hopefully I can get smaller and still really enjoy myself.

I hope we can all enjoy this together,
Linda

@StacyS74 That's great congrats on completing your first day!! I takes a bit to feel like you have the moves down, and it's much more important to do the moves properly rather than to try to keep up with as many as they do in the video. once you know how its supposed to feel when you do them properly it's much easier to keep pace with the video. Keep us posted on your progress emoticon

I am on my first round of Hip Hop Abs the second week emoticon
