It’s ten years since the original The Biggest Loser hit our screens, at least the US version with Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper as the trainers. Jillian Michaels was a tough cookie and my oh my does she have hot abs. I wish I had abs like that.
So, I thought why not give her abs workout a go. I’m not a huge fan of aerobics and group workouts (I can be a little bit uncoordinated) but working out in my living room with just my 3 month old to stare and laugh at his mummy trying to do a burpee or a mountain climber and failing miserably, well I can do that.
That’s where the Jillian Michaels 6 Week Six-Pack Abs Workout comes in. I watched it last week and my abs hurt just looking at the exercises. It took a few days (ok over a week, but let’s be fair I do have a 3 month old who takes up 24 hours of my day), and I finally did it.
The workout is only 35 minutes which is perfect and combines strength and cardio while focusing on abdominals throughout. And we all know that spot reduction doesn’t work so it’s a great way to get a good ab workout without spending half an hour on crunches.
Do I expect a six pack in six weeks? Of course not. I’m not that naive.
What do I expect? A more toned body with stronger abdominal muscles that I can continue working on.
Now, Jillian recommends working out five days a week to see results. So I’m going to aim for 3-4 sessions of the abs workout each week plus 2-3 runs and walking most days of the week.
I’ll write a full review after the six weeks are up. Might even throw in a before and after shot.
