They are not really cardio but I do find myself sweating (not a lot) when I am done. They are strength/stretching (only 3 of them done with weights), but they are the most effective exercises I have ever done. (Of course I always think that at first, but this time my body is seriously changing). I don't feel I need cardio with these, but that's me.
I don't have a goal number for my waist. I just want to be able to get into some old dresses that I haven't been able to wear for about 4 years, but I haven't tried either of them yet. I could get into one of them briefly while doing Callanetics. Callanetics are effective too, but their videos and the book are just repeating the same exercises. With LB I have 3 different DVDs and find myself motivated to work out 5 days a week instead of 3 like I was doing.
Thanks guys! I didn't start exercsing until I was 38. But I discovered as you get older if you don't exercise you get heavy. I was always skinny when I was younger, (and I don't mean slim), and now I have to work to stay slim.
