Nicely sequenced workout that can work as adds ons but the whole is probably greater than the sum of it's parts. Each group of exercises is chaptered but the individual exercises are not. The chapters are: compound work, gliding discs, stability ball, floor work and bonus chair. Although the inner thighs and calves are worked in 2 exercises each and there are upright rows performed with sumo squats it really is an endurance glute workout. Cathe uses 8 lb dumbbells when weights are used. You can go heavier on some exercises but not heavy. This is all low impact. Even with a lot of reps this workout seemed to move right along with plenty of down time to stretch and rest since you're working one muscle group. Cathe stretches both sides each time, I'm a slow stretcher and only did one. The music seemed OK. Not sure if was it based on one song the whole time or if I too busy working to notice any changes. Overall I liked the workout. It is focused and easier than most Cathe's, but not grueling, which means it should get done more frequently.
Cathe is professional as always. She makes a joke or two to keep us going and stretches more here than in most of her workouts. While the exercises are familiar it's not your typical Cathe and can help round things out. :)
