This is an excellent, different, exciting video. I am an instructor and advanced level exerciser and found this to be a great challenge. Only a bicep and row segment were moderate in intensity. She utilizes the bar in new ways so if you are looking for body sculpting ideas for your classes, this video is for you! She uses a two count rep system, followed by a 3 count/1 count, then a 1 count/3 count and then a pulse 3/slow rep count on almost all exercises. This increases intensity and difficulty level until your muscles really feel it. Exercises were performed standing, seating and lying down. I did this workout with a 15 lb. body bar, a component for the workout, but dumbells could suffice. The step is also used a great deal. The pushups were the BEST and I hate pushups!
Keli Roberts is an exceptional instructor with precise cuing and abounding in knowledge. She has a strong, sculpted physique which is very inspiring. Her form and alignment are perfect and she shows lots of modifications utilizing two other instructors.
