Tina,
I love hearing your daily reviews! I've been going through her Bounce DVD these past days and really love it! I have yet to decide how to proceed with her other DVDs, how to mix it all in...

Thank you both! I signed up for the free trial to see if I like her workouts.

hotncmom ~ Glad to hear you haven't gotten bored after 6 weeks. I think I should be able to make it through 28 days then. After I finish this first round, my hope is to take the same rotation and tweak it just a bit.

I plan to stay within the guidelines she's set up with what body part is worked etc, but maybe use some of her other workouts or sub in segments from Tracey Mallett Booty Barre WO's. ( I really like her arm work). I think both women have great upper bodies, so using both of their methods appeal to me.

Plus, I just acquired SB latest release by Prevention, so I need to work that in somehow.

So I could easily keep going for 6 more weeks, I think. I'm also adding in some floorwork from other instructors for the legs, which is easy to add on because I'm only doing 30 minutes/day of Suzanne.

As for results, I'm definitely getting stronger. My arms are looking really nice. I need to cut back on the food a bit to lean out, though. I'm under some extra stress and I find myself eating more than I should. Hopefully things will calm down soon so I can relax and sleep better.
That sounds awesome, hotncmom! I've been doing nothing but Suzanne's workouts myself for the past 2-3 weeks (so far mostly doing her Flat Belly Barre from Prevention) and love it as well!

hotncmom - would you mind sharing your schedule? I have most of Suzanne's DVDs, and I'm curious to see how you are mixing and matching.

So I did day 5 and found an error in her schedule.

It calls for: Bootcamp
Warm up + Thigh Work + Light Weights + Stretch

I thought Light Weights meant Arm Work. But now that I look closer, tomorrow calls fort the Arm Work, but there is no Light Weights to choose. I think it was a typo.

So I would do everything for day 5 and take out the term Light Weights.

Sure, no problem! I basically started with the easier DVD's - Ruah Release, Ruah Warrior, Ruah Long & Lean Prenatal, Slim and Toned Prenatal Barre, and the Weight Watchers DVD. All of those can be split into upper and lower body segments, which I do on alternate days. If there's a mat and a weight segment for upper body, I'll do both. For lower body, I'll do thighs + glutes if they're separated. For the WW DVD, I combine 3 sections each day - Upper Body Cardio, Upper Body Sculpt + Ab Circuit one day and the 3 lower body segments one day.

I also have the Flat Belly Barre (received recently in trade) and those are whole-body workouts, so I'll do one of those on the weekend and throw in extra floorwork since I have more time.

Generally I'll pick something that matches my energy level for the day. The prenatal ones and Ruah ones are my usual choices for days when I'm tired. I usually work out after work - so around 5:30-5:45. Then I eat dinner and try to go for a walk after dinner.

The next level, which I'm getting into now, is the moderate/advanced DVD's - BarreAmped, BA Cardio Fat Burn, BA Bootcamp, Tighten, Tone and Torch, and Gorgeous Core. I'll do the same - alternating upper and lower body on alternate days. For TTT the upper body segment is only 20 minutes, but it is challenging. For Gorgeous Core, I'll probably combine the Sleek Physique + Metabolism Bootcamp sections, which is a total of 24 minutes.

Here's the list of DVD's with the breakdown by section/time. I plan to acquire at least BA Fire in the near future, and I'm kind of undecided on Bounce because I don't have the attachment bar.

You're welcome! I forgot to add these - a couple more breakdowns of DVD's I don't have yet. I think I'll skip the BA prenatal - looks so much like the other 2 I already have. Will get BA Fire soon. I'll probably just sign up for the SBF membership and try out a couple of the rebounder workouts on there first to see if I'm interested in the Bounce DVD.

• Light Weight Work 13 min
• Thigh Work 14 min

• Total Body Sculpt 28 Min
• Thigh & Seat 17 Min
• Abs Blast 13 Min
• Sleek & Toned Shoulders 11 Min
• Relaxation Stretch 12 Min
