Since others have done an adequate breakdown of the workout, I will add just my thoughts and opinions.
Firstly, this workout is a killer. If leg work is your thing, here is your tape! The first time I did this workout, it whipped me totally in the lower body and gave me some decent upper body work too. To my surprise, The next day I was quite sore in the upper body. The upper body work is the right moves, in the right amount, at the right time.
The whole workout is different than anything else I have ever seen or done. I love the ball work, however, I am not co-ordinated enough to do the ball bounce with the lunge/plies (yet). The stick is my best friend. For anyone who scoffs at it, I challenege you to pick it up and do the lowest, most perfect dip you have ever done, then tell me the stick isn't useful! The stick allows for deeper, stronger standing leg work. I won't workout without it. I love the cool-down, the "sway" is so cool! It may even rival my favorite cool down of all time-"hips and Ribs" with Susan. I NEVER skip either of these cool- downs
The set is lovely-looks like a Pier 1 store! The music is perfectly suited for the workout and instructor.
This is a cutting edge workout. But what else would you expect from Anna Benson?
Traci is a master instructor. She demands everything from you BUT sweats along with you. Her form is immaculate and her cueing is perfect. Her delivery in this workout is the closest thing you will ever have to having a personal trainer in the room with you, live!
