Mike leads this 46 minute active core workout in a MMA gym set with a group of exercisers. You will need your TapouT tubing for this workout. There are music and subtitle options and an on-screen countdown timer.
Each exercise is performed for 30-60 seconds. Exercises include floor, seated, and standing core work: kicks, plank walk to standing, superman-plank-side plank, sit up- roll to plank knee strikes, side plank reach through to superman, bob & weave with band punches, superman banana w/ punches, pushup to arm & leg raised planks, plank shifts w/ knee pulls, v knee ins, tri dips & kick, and walking standing oblique & front crunches. The workout ends with a killer move: 2 min of pushups & plank tuck jumps.
I rate this a low advanced workout as this is pretty nonstop, a lot of planks, & explosive pushups. I really like active core workouts and this was a unique & fun change of pace! Love that he includes plenty of low back work. I received this dvd to review.
