Fitness Challenge: Power Half Hour

This month I tried out an ‘old school’ Tony Horton program, called Power Half Hour.  I found that Tony was a bit cheesy and I definitely laughed my way through a few workout moves because of the way that Tony acted- which is actually great when I think about it.  Who wouldn’t want to laugh their way through a workout?  At the very least it meant that I was enjoying it.

This program focuses on each body part.  Throughout the week I hit my abs, butt, thighs, arms and just about any body part you can think of. There were definitely a few days when I felt it more than I expected, which is definitely the point of switching things up each month. The one thing that was lacking a bit in this program was cardio.  While the leg workouts (Bun Burner and Thigh Trimmer) had tons of squats that brought cardio in, many of the other workouts just did not have as much cardio.  I think that when I use this program in the future, I will definitely be combining it with some cardio heavy workouts from other trainers, but other than that I really have no complaints (and the price worked out nicely for me as well).  Of course the part that everyone *really* wants to see is the results part of this little article- so here they are.
