  1. today is my first day of doing this cardio and proudly i complete the whole sets of this exercise in just first start…im sweating right now but in love this cardio…will do this cardio daily ๐Ÿ˜

  2. I've been doing this routine for about a week and I'm enjoying it so far. My quad muscles are in a bit of pain but I definitely feel an improvement. I'm really struggling with the 'touch and raise' exercise. In the video they can comfortably touch the floor with their hands but I can only get my hands to around knee level before feeling discomfort in my quads.

    Should I slow down my pace and try to touch the ground each time or should I maintain the speed but only get my hands to knee level?

  3. Thanks guys. For the past i would do this workout 2-4x a week and itโ€™s helped me lose 10pounds

  4. Just did this workout for the first time and completed it with minor alterations! Im so proud my body was able to do this! ill definitely be doing this workout again! thanks Body Project!

  5. I love this workout! I started yesterday, got tired after 10 minutes and today I managed to do 26 minutes before getting too tired! I feel great! I'm going to keep going at this every day then when I feel I can do this with ease, I'm going to move on to something harder

  6. Iโ€™m at my biggest weight. I only lasted 25 minutes, Iโ€™m a little disappointed in myself. Iโ€™m at 410 pounds, my biggest weight. I really want to lose it, but I donโ€™t have access to gym membership or transportation. Iโ€™m stuck home most time so I hope I can lose something by sticking to doing this workout and try to push myself to do the full workout.

  7. Is this cardio aerobic or anaerobic?…….I don't know so much about cardio.

  8. I'm a beginner and I'm so love it! I can do it until 30 mins thank you so much.

  9. Her cool down sucked but the workout was great. Thanks! ๐Ÿ˜€

  10. Cardio starter just did it, now lm going to do another one of yours, your workouts are good, make me sweat. I also feel stress relief after, thanks.

  11. Great Video Daniel !!!! You da BESTTTTT

  12. Wow.. It makes me sweat immediately.. This is my first time to do this workout.. It was simple workout but then after doing this.. Ohh wow.. Its look like I'm in a boxing area. Catching my breath and make me tired. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š I will tell to my friends about this workout who was eager to get slim. Can do this even you are in your room.

  13. Than you so much for this workout. going to the gym can be hard. I am newly Engaged and want to get in shape .

  14. I'm 31 and out of shape. I'm not trying to loose weight, but just trying to feel healthier and tone. My daughter has asked me to run in a 5k with her, so I am using this to help me build up my stamina and get fit. Today was the first time I tried this and I shocked myself when I made it through the entire workout. I'm sure I'll be feeling it tomorrow!

  15. I've got bad knees and am 15 months post hip replacement. I really enjoyed doing this workout, thank you! It felt challenging but didn't compromise my safety.
    Do you know how many calories this workout burns?

  16. I've been doing this video for months now, I use Daniel's comments like mileposts along the way. From "you feelin all right there?" to "an unpopular decision…squat pulses!" Has anyone tried another body project workout they like? I'm not sure which one to do, but I love the low impact. I do them with a yoga mat, so when I've tried anything with burpees, my feet unfortunately tend to stick a bit. Thanks! And, as Alex says, "Thank you, Daniel!"

  17. I stumble upon this by mistake this is the best workout ever. I started a 60 pound weight loss journey and lost 11 pounds in a little over a month with moderate cardio and now I found this. I'm excited! I'm am totally a fan๐Ÿ’–

  18. i tried this once and took a 3 day break thinking it would be hell to do it again but i tried it again the 2nd time and time flew by so much

  19. It's my first day to do this workout so I hope lose my weight before Ramadan "fasting " ๐ŸŒธ

  20. 2019 converts?

  21. Do you guys know how many calories these exercises roughly burn?

  22. Clock isn't synchronized with the instructions lol

  23. Today 10 APRIL 2019 I did the entire video. My goal is to get a six pack toned body and rock it out at 48! This is a great video for me because it doesn't affect my injuries. I hope I put the right affect in the sentence lol. Anyway, great video .Yay! Finally found a video I can do everyday! Thank you Daniel! Maybe I 'll do a before an after photo and post it on YouTube.
