Ok I'm not very good this, but I'll give it a go
I just finished this workout and I ABSOLUTELY loved it
Just for reference sakes, I typically do cathe, Michelle, Jari love, Amy bento etc. but I love variety also, so I don't shy away from barre, dance, walking(though I don't do these as often)etc... I've also done rotations of p90X, insanity, asylum 1&2, so you see where I'm going with this
There are 6 10 minute sections. You have the option to choose if you want to do one or all sections or create the sections in the order that you want to do them. There is no music off option, but the music was pretty good IMO. There were words, but for the most part were pretty nondescript. I just remember hearing the driving beats; but this is really not my strong point in workouts so ymmv.
The warmup is about a 4 minute. The only thing that may annoy people about the warmup was that he starts you out with reach up step touches to the side and then in the middle but then quickly adds on a squat jump for the middle reach ups. The good thing is this can be easily modified by just continuing to do squats instead of squat jumps. Other than that it was a pretty good warm up.
The main part of the workout alternates a cardio section with a floor section. The cardio section he starts you out with a low impact move and then continues to add on from there with higher impact moves. He explains the move and then you do something like a shuffle where he then explains the next move. I think he does a really good job with this. This is pretty much how it is for all of the cardio sections, except the kickboxing section where you start out with two minutes of jump roping (with a jump rope), but then he goes into the kickboxing section where he starts like the other sections with a low impact move.
The floor sections include some really cool, but tough and interesting moves. He does this move where you do like a half Turkish get up and then you flip over and do a knee pull in to your elbow and then flip back over. You're not on your wrists for long amounts of time in the first two floor sections. In the last one you are for a little longer but he acknowledges that and between sections you raise up off of your wrists and are able to move them around(very briefly).
There's a lateral cardio section that had my butt and outer thighs on FIRE
And for those who hate them, yes there are mountain climbers and burpees, but but not a ton. There are a few burpees in the kickboxing section and some mountain climbers in the last floor section.
Overall this was a very thorough workout. You really feel the bodyweight sections in the upper body
I hope this is helpful, because again I am not very good at reviews. If you have any questions, please ask and I will answer to the best of my ability
ETA: there are no modifiers in this workout, but I think it's pretty easy to modify.
