This 60-minute high/low workout (mostly high)will
really keep you sweating. It's not the most creative
workout in the world, but it certainly does its job. The
moves are not dancy -- they're more athletic (lunges,
knee lifts, etc). Towards the middle, there's a
mini-interval routine where you run in place bringing
your knees (and heart rate) way up, then you
"bounce" in place to rest, then start all over
again. The ending stretch is nice; Charlene is great
about giving you a good stretch when you're done.
Charlene never fails to make me work hard, but I would like to see a little more creativity in the routines. I give this one a B.
I know most of you don't care for Charlene because of her chattiness, but this aerobics video is quite good. It begins with a 9 minute warm-up (naturally with Charlene chattering on), and it goes into an all high-impact aerobics section for 37 minutes. It is very high impact with interval training interspersed in. She does jumping jacks, lunges, jumps, legs and arms going at the same time. It is a very invigorating, advanced video. As far as intensity goes, it compares to Sweat Express by Kari Anderson. When I want to go all out in my aerobics, these two videos pop up in my mind. I recommend it for the very advanced.
