I've been working out at home for about six years using workouts I've found on the Fitness Blender website. I should note that I've never had a personal trainer. The workouts did a great deal for me for the first few years - I lost weight, became more fit, etc. and they still mostly work well. But I've really plateaued in the last several months and also found myself losing interest in working out. I feel like I'm also kind of in a 'skinny fat' stage.
So I thought I'd try out some other free workout programs, and found the BeFit in 30 Extreme videos on YouTube. I did one and it felt really good, leading to a good amount of soreness too.
But it's shorter than I'm used to (I usually do the level 4 / 5 40 minute workouts on Fitness Blender). There's more rest days than I'm used to too.
So I'd like to know - do these shorter workouts especially the BeFit style ones work for strength and fitness? I've struggled to find any reliable reviews online.
NB: I don't want and cannot afford gym membership or a personal trainer just now, sadly.
