Carmen Electra Aerobic Striptease and Pussycat Dolls workout

I bought these a long time ago thinking I could get a good workout and spice up my love life with some new moves...never got around to looking at them. Imagine that. Anyway, I just decided to come up with a complete workout routine including cardio, strength, and yoga. Well I was reviewing my large collection of DVDs to determine which ones to start with. And..OMG these 2 videos are hardly workouts at all. A bunch of sexy moves put together to teach a dance. Carmen electras video has u barely moving. May be good for flexibility but really does no more than teach the moves for exciting your man. She's wearing long sleeves and has her hair and make up done! Anyway, the pussycat dolls video could be a workout but is really tacky and not much more than something dudes would get off on watching. Maybe I could pick up some moves but that's about it. No question. Sorry just saying. Anyone else seen these?

  • I've seen these sexy types of videos before (though not these 2 specifically) and I agree that they aren't much of a workout at all. If you want something dancy, fun, but tough enough to really burn some calories, try Turbo Jam. It's my favorite series ever.

  • Never heard of them. I agree with the turbo jam.

  • I watched one and wasn't impressed. Another great Beach Body workout is Turbo Fire - I got it this week and it is kicking my butt!!!!

  • I have the Carmen Electra ones. Didn't even break a sweat when I was out of shape! They're fun, but they REALLY don't help much. I'm much happier with Jillian Michaels's 30 Day Shred (a little bit different feel to it!).

  • I've heard great things about Zumba, Maybe you could try that?

  • haha ive seen the pussycat dolls workout just a little bit on youtube. i tryed to follow their routine but by gawd it is way too sexy...putting your finger in your mouth and slapping that a$$. it is fun but i wont be following that one anymore. my first thought of it was that it could just be a video to teach someone moves out on the dance floor but not really a workout.

    The carmen electra..i have not seen but i can imagine that its like a julianne houghs one where it kinda doesnt have anything with real jumpy and movements but i did enjoy that one

  • I don't think those are so much workout videos as they are sexy dance videos
