Categories: Lower Body Strength

This is a 46 minute cardio and strength routine that focuses on the lower body but does include upper body strength work. Stacey leads in the mansion set with a group of exercisers. You will need dumbbells, a Fanny Lifter, and optional dowel for this workout.

You begin with a warmup and floor work: crunch variations, pelvic floor work, knee pushups, low back spiderman, lying inner thigh pulls & raises, and bridge work. Standing work includes: hover squats, modified box lunges, kicks, v-step, kick & punch, march, dowel dips-bi curl-knee up, lat row, good mornings, dowel pliets, calf pumps, light 4 limb aerobics, standing inner thigh & glute raises w/ bi curls, French press, rhomboid pinch, overhead press, seated oblique work, and concludes with a stretch.

This is a high beginner routine. There are stretches interspersed into the workout low impact cardio. The lower body work does not use weights but you can easily add dumbbells or ditch the dowel for a more intense workout. Some of the cardio work also utilizes the dowel, but I find this optional as well. I received this dvd to review.
