I did the Cardio Sculpt workout and I'm in love! Lot's of compound movement, great music, great cueing and a dynamo of an instructor. I didn't even get burnt out on the lunges! She does just enough to whip you, but not to defeat you. I really, really enjoyed this workout; and her upper body band work on the step took me down memory lane, it reminded me a bit of Kari Anderson's band work on the step in 'Bench Works'. I also learned a new move that I love (keep in mind I mean new to ME, I'm not saying she re-invented the wheel or anything) it is an overlead lat pull on the floor, one arm, you are lying on your hip, but your chest is at a 45 degree angle to the ceiling. My first thought was 'uh oh, this is how I injured my back with one of the Tony Horton workouts!', but no problem here. I started with 5lbs because this can be a delicate position for your shoulders, especially if the area is weak or lacks flexibility, but I ended up using 10lbs and really felt it in my lats...love this move! Love this workout, really liking this instructor. Tonight, I tackle her step workout!
I thought Pam was an awesome instructor. In a day when few instuctors give any attention to proper cueing, Pam was on the money which made picking up her tough choreography a lot easier and much safer.
