I later learned from a coworker that Warner had a show on Bravo. Chalk my unknowing up to that fact that I don't have cable tv which I go without in order to maintain other elements of my luxurious (not) lifestyle.
I didn't really pay attention to the As Seen On TV. Although, the silver shorts and the six pack did capture my attention. I popped the DVD in and haven't looked back since.
Personal Training with Jackie: Power Training Circuit is no-frills and Warner gets to the crux of the matter in no time starting off with a light jog, kick squats and chain breakers for the warm-up.
I also like the presentation. Before the actual routine, there's a screen to let you know what you're about to get into:
Sissy Squats(done while standing on weights) UFC (a drop, get on a knee, get up and crouch, get down again, then up sequence) Front Lunge Power Burn
While it didn't get numb, it definitely helped to be talked through the rough spots. There's also a point when she says go to that place in your head...
Here's how Warner hits the abs:
Straight Leg Crunch Legs Up Crunch Tall Sit Up Power Burn (Repeat of Straight, Legs Up, Tall Sit) Lower Abs Reverse Crunch Tummy Tuck (oh, the inhumanity) Single Leg Jack Power Burn (Repeat...) Obliques
Sumo Side-to-Side Windshield Wipers Side Plank Power Burn (Repeat...)
I've come to really like this workout even though I know that it requires stepping up to the proverbial plate. I know that It's going to be rough but it's good to be challenged, right?
When you're doing a challenging workout, what is your self-talk like and what's one of your favorite workout DVDs?
