Best Fast workouts

What videos do you recommend that are fast (like 20 minutes) but are intense? I am always getting interrupted while trying to do 40 minute workouts, I'm a sahm and I dont get alot of chances (except weekends) to workout uninterrupted.

Something that helps a momma tummy would be super as well! I've cut back on carbs and sugars , Although I admit I have a major sweet tooth. I've cut way back but I do still have something sweet once a day.
I've been working out doing various videos and my treadmill and a few weigh lifting workouts for over a year now and I've not really lost anything. I have a slow metabolism and have a hard time dropping weight.

My sil does bodyrock.com. Their videos are all under 20 minutes but they're intense.

Re: Best Fast workouts

I don't know about 20 min workouts, but Jillian Michaels' workouts tend to be 30 mins. She has a good kick boxing one that I think is 20 mins.

30 day shred. It's less than 30 minutes and you lose serious inches fast! Google 30 day shred results, it is awesome! And you can do it no matter what your current fitness level is!

Is the kickboxing one good? I've been wanting to try it!

I did the 30 day a few different times. Didnt notice any huge changes. It wasnt as fast paced as I wanted either.

Did you do it for the 30 consecutive days? That stinks that you didn't see the results after working that hard!

Subbing this thread. I'm looking for the same. I want some fast cardio in a short amount of time. 3 kiddos and being a sahm makes working out tough!

The Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 video is more intense than the 30 day shred, in my opinion. Faster paced, the time seems to fly by when doing it!

I am doing a round of 30 day shred currently. It's quick and for me I always see results. Here are the results from this first level. Just so anyone considering trying a Jillian Michaels DVD can see you do get decent results.
