Keli leads this 50 min strength workout in a martial arts studio w/ 2 background exercisers. You will need sand weights for this workout (though the pace allows for heavier weights). The format is to do a set on one side of the body and then repeat on the other.

Keli utilizes the sand weights for most all of the workout. Exercises include: squat -hop to plank - pushups, cat curtsy- row, kick- lunge- military press, cat- side kick- side lunge & side raise, back kick- dip & tri kickbcak, pliet- squat & bi curl, cat squat- knee up- diagonal lunge & diagonal raise, & dead lift & back fly. Before your final stretch, you perform donkey kick variations, side plank & knee to elbow pulls, and sit up to V sits. The slow kicks really challenge the balance!

Using heavy weights I would rate this a solid intermediate workout and low intermediate with sand weights. Keli is a good lead in this one and her cuing was great. Love that she really works on balance- she even had some trouble with one set. Lots of great combo moves that got my heart rate up. Well rounded & hits all the muscles. I received this dvd to review.
