As I progress through the program, I try to keep everyone up-to-date on the 11 different workouts that are included. Each is tougher than the last and designed to be slowly introduced over the course of 13 weeks as to not involuntary murder someone from shock and over exhaustion.
From what I can tell through research and talking with friends who have tried yoga in the past, "Diamond" Dallas Page really put together a hybrid form of yoga: part traditional yoga poses, add in some calisthenics, throw in breathing exercises, a dash of rehab techniques, and just a hint of resistance exercises for good measure. The best part is that this hybrid form of yoga is non-stressing on the joints, but that doesn't mean these workouts aren't tough as shit. You get everything you'd expect from a guy who used to choke out giant, muscle-bound men for a living. (By the way, the more I learn about "Diamond" Dallas Page, the more I like him, not only as a person but also a businessman. Check out this great article on Deadspin for more info.)
Once you're familiar with the "Diamond Dozen" — the key 13 moves of the DDP Fitness System — "Energy" takes all those moves and incorporates them into an energizing 20-minute workout designed to wake up your body. The pace is much quicker than "Diamond Dozen," which in all fairness is only an introduction/explanation of all the poses in a pace slow enough to be more suitable for assisted living facilities. "Energy" ramps it up, but would still be the starting point for anyone new to DDP or yoga looking for a quick 20-minute workout to start stretching those muscles.
"Fat Burner" is described as a "fast paced, high-cardio emphasis focuses on carving fat off your body in a compact, time-saving workout." Think of this workout more as a standing, epileptic seizure flinging your body around the room, gyrating fat off your body more so than "carving fat off." As far as I can tell, this is what distinguishes DDP Yoga from most other types of yoga. [I was just told Ashtanga (not to be confused with your cashier at McDonald's) yoga does have more cardio aspects than the rest out there.]
Red Hot Core
If there's anything I've learned from late night infomercials, it's the fact that no one, NO ONE can properly execute a sit-up. They flop around on the ground like Bobby Hill training for the Presidential Fitness Test. But hey, that's just your body's way of agreeing with you and pizza that it's time to go lay on the couch and polish off a pint of Rocky Road. This 15-minute workout will seriously set your abs on fire. I can't guarantee a sexy, slim waistline and ripped abs, but at least you'll be able to move just a little faster towards the refrigerator.
