All through my youth I was told that adulthood has benefits, therefore, I looked forward to adulthood. I’m still looking forward to the benefits.
After a career, marriage, three children, and all the Macs I can afford, the only thing I’ve gain recently as a card-carrying adult is a little flab around the middle. But now my Mac and iPhone can help me with daily workouts.
Workouts For Cardio, Abs, Butt
My husband, loving soul that he is, mentioned that I might like these new Mac Daily Workout Apps. My response? “Are you saying I’m fat!”
A decade into our marriage and he’s still well trained. He offered no resistance (which is futile anyway).
Without a word he swiveled the MacBook around so I could see what was on the screen. A sexy, svelte, and well toned young lady with dark hair was working up a sweat on the floor.
That could be me, I thought. Except for the sweat, svelte and well toned figure. I have dark hair. Daily Workout Apps is a series of inexpensive Mac and iPhone apps with video exercises for adults (they’re probably good for teenagers, too, but I don’t care about them—they’re teenagers).
Each workout has two five to 10 minute routines for women and men that walk through specific exercises. Mac or iPhone, it’s easy to get into the habit of simply mimicking the onscreen exercise video.
The abs workout looks effective except for the blue mat. Blue is not my color, and me trying to do crunches on the carpet while the kids watch and snicker is not a ego builder for a newly flabby mom.
Each contains a feature for random daily workouts, so you don’t get presumptuous and grab a chocolate laced granola bar while waiting for an exercise you really want to do because it doesn’t cause sweat.
The advantage of these daily workouts is the simplicity and the video.
It’s not magic. It’s exercise and sweat. And there’s plenty from which to choose. Daily Ab Workout. Daily Yoga. Daily Butt Workout. Daily Arm Workout. Daily Cardio Workout. Daily Leg Workout.
I couldn’t find the video on the daily wine and hot tub workout. You can’t beat the price and they’re effect (as my smiling husband and sore abs attest).
