anyone use Wii Active??

  • Has anybody else used the Wii Active program for their training?  Or that a big no no?

    If so, how are you planning and scheduling your workouts to follow the BFL training guide? So far I have been using it on the hardest setting and I do find I am incredibly sore and feel like I am hitting my 10s...just making sure I am not doing something wrong.

    Also, does anyone have good exercises for lower abs? My stomach is really stretched out for having a 10.5 lb baby 7 months ago.

    Any help/advice would be appreciated!

  • KTG,  I don't know about Wii, but I imagine as long as you are doing the HIIT intervals, then you can work with it. I have the same question about wkout cardio videos, but again, I feel my tens and it is mostly intervals.....

    Concerning your stomach, I also have a wkout video I do to help with my crunches- the regular ones just don't do it for me anymore.

    Be patient with your tummy- you had a baby 7 months ago, so please don't be too stressed or hard on yourself if it doesn't shape up right away.

    Best of luck!

  • I'm not familiar with Wii Fit, but I am somehow skeptical that it is giving as intense a workout as hitting the weights and treadmill/eliptical/running outdoors etc.  I am sure you are doing some good by getting up and moving and it looks fun.

    I would probably reserve the Wii for "extra" cardio and stick to the tried and true methods for getting your workouts in.

  • It actually has weightlifting in the program just uses resistance bands instead of dumbbells. It's actually more weights than cardio...I have to supplement in cardio by my exercise bike.

    Every workout with the Wii I have worked myself into muscle failure so I'm pretty sure I'm doing something good. lol.

    Thanks for the advice. I think I will still use the Wii but add in some additional weights/cardio to make sure I am getting the most out of the program. Thanks!

  • Ahh it has resistance bands, that is great!  I'll google it to check out the whole thing.

    Thanks for educating me.
