Hi everyone,
I have just completed day 4 of Hip Hop ABS. It is great to find this forum and read the results of others who have and are currently completing this workout. I have never completed a program like this before. I purchased Insanity but found that I was not in good enough shape to do it yet so I decided to go with the Hip Hop ABS first. I purchased the deluxe version with series 2 and the weighted gloves. I can really feel the effect the gloves are having as my shoulders and back muscles are quite sore after a workout, so I am hoping it will really help tone up my arms. Anyone else use the gloves? If so what type of results did you get? I had a hard time falling into the steps with the video at first but now I am doing much better. I can tell that I have much better form now as I can really feel my muscles burning and the workouts are harder to do now because I am doing them properly. I got sore abs, legs, and shoulders but I know it's a good thing. I'm not sure when we are supposed to remeasure and weigh ourselves again, is it at the end of every 6 day session?
Thanks in advance

Hey there, I have worked out using the weighted gloves & it adds more tone to your arms...adding any weight to a workout will emoticon I was really out of shape when I started insanity so i just did what i could & started it all over again. you would be amazed how fast your body changes & the strength it adds. I weighted in every week & measured also just so I could keep myself motivated & see I was making a change. Remember any weight loss or even a 1/4 of an inch is a loss to congratulate yourself for. If you have anymore question please feel free to ask away. CARLIE

I am in the same situation as you are Cosmocomet emoticon
Got Insanity and realized I am far too out of shape to just leap right in. I am waiting on my own Hip Hop Abs to come in the mail. Hoping it helps me get into a little better shape so I can accomplish Insanity as well.

I see it has been about a month since you posted this. How is HHA going for you? Are you seeing and feeling good results? emoticon Hope it is all going well for you! I am glad to know I am not the only person who chose the HHA route to start before delving back into Insanity in better shape~

Cheers

Hi artifendera! I also was intimidated by Inanity (my husband is doing it) and started with Hip Hop Abs! I am on day 7 (rest day). I had been discouraged because I havent seen much movement on the scale and was worried that there wasnt enough cardio in it to do anything but I have seen a difference in my measurements. And I am gaining more confidence and think I can move on to try Insanity after I am done. I have an online coach, BBcoachGerryS, and am active with his message thread. That seems to be a critical point of accountability and I also see the other people on that thread that are doing some of the other programs and their transformations. Very encouraging! Hope you are doing well with yours!

Wow sorry I didn't see this till now! I love my Hip hop abs. I bought the deluxe
Setup so I have the weighted gloves and the second month regiment with the level
2 workout routine. It's working great! I redid the last week of level one near the holidays
As I had missed some days due to traveling to see the family. I have a little over 1 1/2 weeks
To go before I have completed the whole thing, and I can tell a Major difference in my body!
I am currently contemplating redoing it from halfway through level 1 and onwards one more time
Of trying the Rockin body which is supposed to be the next level. Still not ready for insanity I think
Because I have a bum right knee that really bothers me sometimes and I have to so the modified versions
When he does the jumping aspect. How are you doing?
