In an effort to save as much money as possible, Ryan and I have gotten rid of gym memberships. Instead, we do body weight workouts at home or dig through discount store bins for workout dvds. We have the entire collection of P90x videos and more recently, we got the Men’s Health 60-day transformation program.
Even though the program come from Men’s Health, they encourage women to use the program as well. They even have a woman demonstrating the exercises in the video. #girlpower
Here is a little more info on the MH60 dads from the Men’s Health website.
What is MH60?
MH60 is The Men’s Health 60-Day Transformation, a 4-DVD fitness program. World-renowned fitness expert David Jack combines the latest science of fat loss, athletic conditioning, strength training, and cardiovascular fitness—for a never-before-program that will help you demolish belly-fat, sculpt your chest, shoulders, and arms, and supercharge your metabolism.
What kind of equipment do I need?
All that’s required is a couple of pair of dumbbells and a large towel. It’s always nice to have a range of dumbbells, but if you have a pair of 20s or 25s, and a pair of 10s, you’ll be able to do most everything, and get an awesome workout. You only use the towel a couple of times, but you’ll want to keep it handy to wipe sweat with anyway.
How many workouts are there?
There are a total of 9 workouts in this program.
How often do I work out?
With this program, you’ll exercise 3 to 6 days a week. The main plan requires just 3 days a week—every other day—but if you’d like to add extra activity on your “off” days, we’ve created a bonus workout that allows you to do just that.
The 60-Day program is divided into three 3-week phases—which you’ll find on Discs 1, 2, and 3. For each phase, simply alternate between the provided routines three to four days a week, resting at least a day between each.
Obviously, since we are just starting the dvds, Ryan and I are still on disc one.
Disc 1: Day 1 to Day 14
For disc 1, we alternate back and forth between the two workouts for 14 days. They encourage you to rest at least a day between workouts. The goal: complete 6 to 7 total workouts in those first 14 days.
Workout 1: Fat Frying Fury (33 minutes)
Workout 2: Total Body Typhoon (32 minutes)
So there you have it! I’m excited to see what these workouts can do for me and hopefully help my run game.
