Jillian works out in a gym set with a group of toned background exercisers. Each dvd is in one folder as pictured above. You will need dumbbells and tubing for some of the exercises. Each workout is done circuit style, with each exercise being performed for 30 seconds to 1 minute and then repeating the circuits, and mixing in a few straight cardio exercises. Each workout contains a built in warmup and cooldown. The warmups & workouts being more intense than the previous phases.
Workout 9 Front Body: (33 min) Exercises include push-up jacks, plank flys, unweighted toe plies, low jacks, down dog to cobra divers, lo to hi plank press ups, down dog to plank knee pulls, crouching burpee hop ups, side thrust burpees, unweighted chair hold, single leg squat to walk out one legged plank, boat to hollow man, band reverse crunch, plank hop ins, curtsy and lat raise, weighted crab drops, side plank rotations, and roll back up to squat hold.
Phase 3 workouts are high intermediates but I did use heavier weights than Jillian. I was able to use heavier weights in the entire set that Jillian shows, making the workouts more challenging. Some exercises are advanced and she doesnt waste any time but as a whole my ranking is high intermediates. Jillian doesnt offer as many modifications in this phase. The strength workouts will def get your heartrate up more than the other phasss. These are athletic style workouts and Jillian adds more multi-muscle exercises and includes balance work to the exercises. I received these dvds to review.
