Tracie leads this 45 minute strength + cardio workout alone alone in a cute brick gym on a pedestal. She does offer modifications for many of the exercises. You will need a med ball, dumbbells, and optional gliders (paper plates or towels work fine) for this workout.
I really like the structure of this workout. She combines unique functional work with tried & true strength exercises to really hit the muscles in a new way. Tracie includes some fun lower impact cardio, a 4-limb segment, great core work, and a nice floor work section. LOTS of standing core work and nice balance challenges.
Exercises include: med ball weave between the legs, standing side knee crunches, long arm ball twists, med ball kettlebell swing, diagonal ball chops, low squat side to side, long jump forward & hop back, standing dumbbell swim & squat, side to side walking pushups, 1 legged balance "run," balance tri kickback, lat row & raise,push up - frog (modified burpee), side kicks, lunge & weighted punch, disc pliets, bear drops, pike plank, glider pushups, donkey kicks, med ball v twists, med ball knee crunches, reverse crunch w/ the ball between your knees, scissors, and walking bridge.
I would rate this a solid intermediate workout. As always Tracies cuing is spot on and her form is impeccable. Love how she seamlessly combines so many different exercises and includes great unique combos to keep you interested. I def felt my muscles being worked in a way different from my "norm" and loved that my core was being worked so much in this workout! received this to review
