This dvd comes with Jessicas new book: Thin in 10. The dvd contains five 10 minute workouts. Jessica works out in a nice studio with no background exercisers but provides modification options. You will need tubing for one of the workouts. The dvds allows you to play all or select a segment.
Cardio Quickie: In this interval workout you perform 40 seconds of low intensity followed by 20 seconds high intensity. Exercises include double side step to side shuffle floor touch, swim to moderate star jacks, power walk to power jog, figure 8 scoops to skaters and then repeat the circuit.
Strength Shot: In this bodyweight only workout you perform squats, dips, plank, pushups, and supermans. Then you repeat the circuit with some added intensity. Each exercise is performed for 60 seconds.
Total Body Band: Using tubing you perform multi-muscle exercises at a cardio pace. Exercises include: dips & chest scoops, pliet & lat pull down w/ an oblique crunch, tri extension & squat, side step & overhead press, bi curl & torso twist, bicycle, and bunny hops to keep the heartrate up.
Core Conditioning: Exercises include crunch variations, plank & side plank variations, bike, sit-ups, & bird dogs. Each exercise is performed for 60 seconds.
Stretch & Destress: This seated full body stretch includes breathing exercises. Jessica does a great job of stretching out the entire body in this routine & emphasizes the importance of stretching in your workout regimen.
I rate these intermediate routines that you can easily modify up or down to suit your needs. Love the 10 minute format for days short on time or mix and match to create a longer workout. As always, Jessica is a superb lead with fabulous cuing, excellent form pointers, and unique & effective exercises to get the job done. Really enjoyed the workout! I received this dvd to review.
