Disappointed with Piyo
I'll do you a favor. I will HAPPILY accept your PiYo DVD's so that they're not cluttering up your house.0
PiYo is yoga. Things like Turbofire or Insanity (which is what I did previously) are high intensity cardio programs, meaning that both feet are off the ground a lot. They're just different types of work outs. Also, if you find it really easy and you're just breezing through, that's not the point of the program. That's kind of like doing some half-*kitten* squat when you do insanity- you have to make it hurt (hurt in a good way). Also, it's only been three days.0
I have been working out for years with weights and cardio and I LOVE Piyo. It does start out slow but gets a lot harder. I seriously sweat buckets doing it and I've already noticed definition I never had before in my arms and back. I am only on week 3. I do also do Les Mills Pump classes at the gym. I would def give it more time. I am just going to keep with this program even after the 8 weeks, just not everyday. I love it that much.0

How often do you do the Les Mills Pump classes with the plyo? I am currently doing a rotation of LMP at home with the DVDs and may want to incorporate the PIYO and give it another chance.0
I had it for about 3 weeks now and have not done it yet. After reading the comments here, I think I just might give it a try (today) I think.0
Hey y'all, I haven't done Piyo, but since everyone's comparing it to yoga, I'd like to share my experience with another low impact thing I did years ago: My friend bought Windsor Pilates when it first came out (yeah, I'm dating myself here) and I laughed at it. No way that could work. I was doing things like "The Firm" and "Buns of Steel." I borrowed it from her just so I could speak with authority about how lame it was because all it seemed to me was like a series of stretches.
Well, I was wrong! That series of stretches did such amazing things for my body after a month I went and bought my own set. Sometimes, especially if you've been doing high impact for awhile, the body just needs a break and responds wonderfully.
I also find that a good yoga session really works the body and I sweat as if I've been running. A side-benefit of pilates is that I've had sports massagers after a race compliment me on my flexibility. One told me that she could tell I did things like yoga and pilates and that those helped prevent the standard runners ailments.
That is so hilarious. I had the same experience a few years back. I did one of my Firm dvd's and wanted a bit more so I popped in my Windsor Pilates dvd that I purchased but never uses. I don't think I made it 15 minutes.0
