Patrick packs alot into this 50 minute workout. The only equipment needed are dumbbells (hence the name!). I've done this workout 2 times so my comments are based on those experiences. The strength intervals are mostly compound moves and although it never seems like he really hits lower body, both times I've been surprised by how sore I was in my lower body the next day. I would classify this as a functional workout because of the types of moves - the exercises hit my core in novel ways. The dumbbells are incorporated into most of the cardio intervals - mountain climbers with your hands on the dumbbells, or you place the dumbbells on the floor and step over them and jump in, moves like that. Overall I find the workout fun and time flies by!
Patrick keeps it fun and cues very well. If you've been looking for a Patrick workout for the choregraphy-impaired this may be it.
