This is a 51 minute dvd with 3 premixes available from the menu and is chaptered by circuits so you can easily break this down into various shorter workouts. Cathe leads in a brick gym with a cityscape view. She works out with 4 backgrounders and you wont need any equipment for this workout.
Each circuit is comprised of three 30 second cardio drills done twice and finishes with 1 functional core exercise. There are a total of 5 circuits & she does give you a bit of recovery time between the cardio exercises. The cardio is high intensity & athletic in nature- really gets your heartrate up! And all the corework is very functional and active-so your heartrate doesnt drop much.
Exercises include: plyo squat digs, Mt. climbers, jack- hop- burpee combo, lateral slide, V knee pull extensions, triangle choke hold, air jacks, split jumps, butterfly sit-ups, 180 jumps w/ a floor touch, lateral jump- tuck jump combo, squat drop & roll, single leg skip arounds, hi kick hops, and push up- roll back- roll up combos.
I rate this an advanced workout. Great calorie burner & I love to get core work in with my cardio. Cathe's cuing is excellent and the sequencing is excellent- really allows you to give each more your all for a great sweaty workout! I am fairly new to Cathe- and based on this one I am a convert- fantastic workout!!!!!
