I was browsing through the weight loss and nutrition books at my local library when the title of this book caught my eyes- Denise’s Daily Dozen. I remember working out to Denise Austin at 6:00 A.M. and 6:30 A.M. on Lifetime Network when I was in high school.
The premise behind this book is very simple. Denise Austin encourages readers to exercise each day using a routine consisting of a set of 12 moves which take only 12 minutes to do. If you miss a day of working out all you have to do is add that day’s routine to the next one. You can either do another day’s routine or a bonus daily dozen workout if you have more time to workout. Although this program does seem a big gimmicky, I like the fact that the moves are a combination of cardiovascular, toning, and flexibility exercises.
Each day of the week is dedicated to a specific workout:
Monday: Cardio Fat Blast
Tuesday: Lower Body and Ab Workout
Wednesday: Cardio Kickbox Workout
Thursday: Upper Body and Ab Workout
Friday: Body Boot Camp Workout
Saturday: Athletic Kettlebell-Inspired Workout
Sunday: Yoga Stretch Workout
I plan on doing mini updates on my progress with this book as well as a review.
