Cathe leads this unique 52 min cardio & strength workout in a brick set w/ 4 background exercisers. This dvd is fully chaptered and includes premixes. You will need gliding discs and a loop for this workout. You can break this up into a cardio workout, a strength workout, or do the workout in entirety for some real double trouble.
Disc cardio work includes: swimmers, runners lunge pulling the disc in, cardio lunges & reach, burpee climbers, jacks, rope, shuffle curtsy, burpee pushups, cardio side lunges, burpee knee pulls pikes, and twists. Strength work includes: bridge ham pulls, lying band leg scissors, roll out trip pushups, band arm pulls, crossover pushups, hammer curls, dragging pushups, disc situps, disc torso twists, mermaid crunches, and plank foot slides. Warmup and cooldown included.
I rate this a solid intermediate workout that is low impact, super unique, and the choreo is very easy to catch onto. Cathe does an excellent job of utilizing the discs in a variety of fun, effective, and unique ways. Really enjoyed this workout and love the low impact but higher intensity! I received this dvd to review.
