Low Impact Series: Athletic Training

Cathe Friedrich
Year Released: 2011

Categories: Circuit Training (cardio and weights)

This is a 56 minute dvd that offers plenty of premixes & is chaptered very well. Cathe works out with 4 exercisers in a nice open set. You will need a step, dumbbells, tubing, loop band, and gliding discs for this workout. Cathe takes you through a warump, a short step routine, and then strength work- much of which wil keep your heart rate up.

After a w/u exercises include: bench knee pulls, straddle & touch step, repeater knees, touch step -knee up, front swings, hip abduction off step & arm swing, shoulder tap pushups, disc dips & bi curl, band & dumbbell curl, tri dips w/ 1 leg disc slides, lying tricep work, standing loop donkey kicks, deadlift variations, seated band delt fly, crunches, reverse crunches, plank knee drops & concludes with a c/d & stretch.

I rate this is a high intermediate/ low advanced workout- it is simple choreo but nonstop heartpumping cardio and strength work. The first portion of the strength kept my heart pounding. This is a lighter/ medium poundage workout that moves at a fast pace but is not high rep. I really love the low impact but high intensity & simple but not boring choreo- this is definitely a unique, fun & effective video. I look forward to more from this series! I received this video to review.
