Notes:
▪ The standing work is all lower body up to 9:20 minutes. I don’t like the upper body work – it feels unbalanced and some moves are awkward (e.g., punches).
▪ There is a lot of core work in this one (19 minutes) and I find the isolation work is overkill (about 8 minutes total!)
▪ Solid floor work with very challenging pelvic tuck series.
▪ My favorite version (35-minute lower body and abs workout): Skip the last 8:24 minutes of the standing work and the core segment.
