Jillian Michaels: No More Trouble Zones

 Jillian Michaels: No More Trouble Zones

TV fitness instructor Jillian Michaels uses her "surefire circuit training formula" to get rid of your problem areas. The circuit training means you continue to burn calories even after you exercise.

No More Trouble Zones is made up of 7 circuits:

Circuit 1- Shoulder & Legs

Circuit 2- Chest & Abs

Circuit 3- Biceps & Butt

Circuit 4- Thighs & Triceps

Circuit 5- Core

Circuit 6- Upper Body & Core

Circuit 7- Lower Body & Core

Plus a five 5-minute cardio-dynamic stretching warm up and yoga-style static stretch cool down.

Her circuit training formula mixes upper and lower body sculpting moves to get rid of fat and get your body in shape.

Jillian Michaels’ exercise captured in a 40 minute workout video aims to turn your body from flabby to fit.

No More Trouble Zone is a pretty intense workout, so I’m not sure if beginners can keep up. But then Michaels shows some adjustments for beginners, so it might still work for those who want to start with a bang. Also, the circuit exercises are weighs-and uses dumbbells, chairs, etc.  Pro equipment-less fitness enthusiasts might not be into it, but I see no problem with that, since dumbbells do not cost that much anyway.

That said, you’re sure to feel burns (you know that "just exercised" feeling you get in your muscles) in (body) parts you’ve never felt burns in before, like your hips and gluts, which means that yes, you are working your "trouble zones" to inexistence.

Also, I think that Jillian Michaels is a great instructor and also a great motivator – and one heck of a workout buff!
