Mike leads this 41 minute upper body strength workout in a MMA gym set with a group of exercisers. You will only need resistance tubing for this workout (included in the set). There are music and subtitle options. Also included on this disc is the XT Abs workout.
Mike uses the tubing for every exercise to amp up the workload. You perform a group of 5 exercises each exercise for 30-90 seconds and then repeat variations. Exercises include: row variations, explosive pushups, wide bi curls, French press, reverse fly, bench press, military press, hammer curls, jab jump switch, chest scoop, squat pop press, tri dips, upper cuts, pushup with arm raise, & balance fly. The workout ends with a killer move: 90 seconds of I’s Y’s & T’s.
I rate this a solid intermediate workout that can be modified depending on your band strength. Mike keeps this workout moving right along with no wasted time. His form pointers are excellent and the workouts have a great energy. I received this dvd to review.
