I'm curious. Are most people just following the workout videos or are they using them in addition to their own routines?

    I use the dailyburn videos almost exclusively for my workout routine. Now that it's warming up outside, I'll probably go running in addition to doing the videos.

    More times than not I will do a workout everyday in addition to my elliptical, spinning or running routines. Sometimes with my kids I will do one workout per kid (I have 3) and that covers me for the day LOL

    In addition. I'm an avid runner, so these videos are just part of cross training along with swimming, biking and my own occasional lifting workout at my work gym.
    This site has been great though - I love the recovery videos, and the workout variations have helped give my running a huge boost.

      Same here. I'm poor at stretching, so DailyBurn has been helping me fill in that gap on recovery days.

    I also go to the gym to get in some cardio, light weight training, and sometimes even yoga. I also have a Groupon for kickboxing and combat fitness, and a boxing class for which a friend and I recently registered -- so those things are in the mix for now as well.

    I'm brand new to dailyburn, so I thought that I'd try working out the dailyburn way, at least for a while. I've been doubling up on the videos most days, trying to keep my exercise time in the 60 to 90 minute range. I usually do a more challenging work out in the morning and follow up with something lighter in the PM.

    Great stuff so far. I'm very impressed!

      I was swimming three day a weeke for 2.5 years and was not losing any weight, and was talking to a guy at the YMCA, who asked how many days are you exercising, I said three, he said try to do more, I throw in one more day and did notice I was dropping but did not keep it up.

    Yup I'm following the videos at the moment. I've found I didn't stick with the program I was on though and I ended up mixing and matching depending upon my mood and energy level at the time. It keeps me motivated and seems to work pretty well for me. I do find I prefer the TBT stuff though. Good luck. :)

    I am using these in place of My Trainer Bob 60 minute DVDs, which are bit excessive after coming back from a slew of injuries from overtraining using them. They are also helping me with getting my strength back to hopefully get back in the pool to swim and to run again.

    Dendrobite  27 days ago by: Dendrobite

    I use the videos every day unless there's something going on that keeps me from doing it. If that happens then I just do some light stretching and a few reps of something with which I'm already comfortable. I also go for jogs with my dog. Sort of like a lazy version of HIIT where we encourage each other to sprint for random intervals.

    I use it in addition to my other workouts. I teach 6 or so Jazzercise classes a week, plus additional strength training. Jazzercise includes some weight work, but it tends toward high rep of lighter weights, so I lift heavier weights with fewer reps once a week too. I added DB to have something shorter I can throw in on days off or days when I'm only fitting in one workout a day.
