This is a fully chaptered 55 minute workout & includes plenty of premixes. Cathe leads with 4 background exercisers in a nice gym set. You will need dumbbells, a step, a stretchy loop and gliding discs (or alternatives) for this workout. Love the top 40-esque music.
The main workout chapters are: w/u, Fitness Blast, Firewalker Tabata, Circuit Blast, Plyo Tabata, Stretch. The bonus workouts are: Core and Low Impact Cardio Tabata.
Exercises include: scissor & tuck jumps, walking pliets, crouching band jacks, squat -adduct - military press, weighted skater, heel click jacks, jack & tuck, air jacks, hi knee run, disc pushup jacks, warrior lunge & knee raise, wood chops, weighted plyo lunges, weighted mogul & hop up, crab kicks, bike, disc climbers, cardio lunges, pliet raises, disc lunges, 180 hops, squat digs, floor touches.
This is an advanced workout that really packs a cardio punch! I thought the weights really added to the cardio effect. Cathe provides great motivation, excellent cuing, and unique & original exercises. I really enjoyed the tabata segments and love the use of the discs. I really liked the athletic & unique choreography that was easy to follow. Great pace- no wasted time but not rushed. I received this dvd to review.
