Gregg leads this 64 min workout with one other (also very buff) exerciser. You will need a pullup bar or band option, dumbbells, and sand weights for this workout. This is a strength w/o that provides a killer cardio effect! Lower impact but high intensity. The w/o is broken into 5 pods which you perform 2ce each.
After a great functional w/u Greg moves right into pullup variations (adding a kick, a crunch hold, a chair hold, double leg kick), pushup-side plank- side kick, balance weighted burpees/climbers, weighted roll backs, slow horse stance w/ a torso twist, sledge hammer, horse stance w/ 4 dimensional arm raises, balance stick w/ row, windmill, longe lever weighted crucnhes, superman, a unique 2 leg table core exercise, and finishes with a stretch.
I rate this workout advanced because of the pullups though much of the strength work really got & kept my heartrate up. This is my fav of the w/o's Ive done from the set & also the most challenging. Gregg is a fantastic lead w/ perfect form pointers & cuing. Very motivating and a great mix of karate and cardio inducing strength work. Really loved this workout! I received this dvd to review.
