Slide and Glide - Cardio portion
I just did the cardio portion (then stretch) of this workout as I combined it with Afterburn. I felt that although it was easier than Afterburn, by emphasising the moves I was able to keep my heartrate elevated.
I enjoyed the fun use of the discs to make high intensity moves like jumping jacks, low impact. I liked that many of the moves really targetted the glutes, inner/outer thighs and hamstrings as these muscles need extra work for me (due to muscular imbalances from running).
I enjoyed how Cathe incorporated the discs into the stretch segment as this enabled me to get into the muscles more deeply.
I rate the cardio portion of this workout an 8.5/10 because by itself for me it is too short for cardio and the music, really would be perfect with some vocal tracks.
Cathe and crew were nicely perky during the workout.
