This disc contains two workouts, both done in a gorgeous outdoor set overlooking the city. Owen leads these workouts in voiceover and there are 2 backgrounders that give you a side view of their form. The disc also includes a w/u & c/d and music options. You will only need a kettlebell for these workouts and they are performed barefoot. The set comes in a very nice secure cardboard book that keeps the discs safely in place.
Workout One: (20 min) This workout is comprised of 16 sets of swings. You perform a two handed swing for 30 seconds which is followed by 45 seconds of active rest/
Workout Two: (16 min) This is a five exercise circuit; each exercise is performed for 30 seconds followed 30 seconds of active recovery. Exercises include: deadlifts, rows, goblet lunges, sling shot, plank. Each circuit is followed by a one minute recovery.
Owen does an excellent job of providing form pointers just when you need them! I LOVE that he is face on and the girls are profile view so you really can see how to properly execute each move. These are straight to the point workouts that really get the heartrate up with strength work. This set is perfect for the beginner through advanced exerciser as it includes an instructional dvd and you can easily adjust the intensity of your workout depending on the weight of your bell. And because they are timed intervals- you can go at your own pace. Cant wait to try the other workouts!!! I received this dvd to review.
