Finally a DVD I can do

I finally found a DVD that I can do without killing my knee.  It is Tae Bo "The Believers Workout".  Be forewarned, it heavy on the religious speak but if you can get past that (and maybe that works for you) it is easy on the knees and good for beginner to intermediate exercisers.  There are two of these DVD's.  One pictured above called "Strength Within"  and one called "Power Within".  They were distributed in 2003 so you have to buy them on places like Amazon.  On the upside, you can get them fairly cheaply.

This has been a pretty good week for me in terms of exercise and diet.  I have done well on both.  Sadly, that has not translated into any more weight loss.  Hmnnn.....

Have a great weekend!!!


  1. Great pick!!! A 7th Degree Black Belt and a 7-Time World Karate Champion..."Billy was born with an anomaly in his hip joints that impaired his movement, and a clumsiness that earned him the taunts of his siblings and caused his coaches to believe he’d never accomplish much. Billy found the answer to these challenges in karate." (excerpt from IMDB)

    Billy Blanks has some awesome workout videos as well as some cool old-time karate flicks. They're corny but I still think they're pretty entertaining with a ton of great martial art techniques.

    Here is a list of my guilty martial art pleasures, that get me psyched for working out and getting back into the dojo:
    Fist Of Legend (Jet Li),
    Showdown (Billy Blanks),
    Balance Of Power (Billy Blanks),
    The Perfect Weapon (Jeff Speakman),
    The Karate Kid (Ralph Macchio),
    No Retreat, No Surrender (Jean Claude Van Damme),
    A Force Of One (Chuck Norris)
    Ip Man (Donnie Yen)
    Fearless (Jet Li)
    The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin (Chia Hui Liu)

    Hope you're doing well!!!
