Edge Booty Extreme 1

Edge Booty Extreme 1

About Me: Age 45-50, intermediate exerciser, main form of exercise for the past few months has been PT exercises focusing on glute activation and core strengthening plus walking 30 minutes five days a week, purchased program to strengthen glutes and core for help with low back pain and hip stabilization.

My 2 Cents: I would not recommend EBE1 for someone new to exercise. While the exercises themselves are solid, the presentation is sometimes sloppy with little to no cuing and/or poor form, particularly in workout #3 (Single Leg Burnout) in the all fours and side lying floor work. Having said that, the workouts themselves have great traditional exercises that if formed correctly will provide a solid strength base to build on in EBE2 or other programs. I can't help but compare it to Supreme 90, which in and of itself is a great program if you can get past the sometimes less than optimal presentation.

The music is forgettable but not a deal breaker.

As an instructor, Ingrid Romero is just ok in these. I have not done EBE2 yet but think I will like her better in those workouts. Her form is actually good for most exercises except for the floor work in workout #3. I envy how deep she gets in lateral lunges. She annoyed me only a couple times, in workout #1 when she twice asks a background exerciser, "Are you challenging me?" The first time it was cute, the second time not so much. She has a little silliness to her at times, but it's not often and it's not a deal breaker.

In addition to the DVD containing the four lower body workouts, when you place your order you receive a link via e-mail to a PDF eBook that lays out a meal plan and suggested rotation. It also contains a list of warm-up exercises to active the glute muscles prior to each lower body workout, two upper body paper workouts, a 10-minute HIIT paper workout, and a paper Vacation Booty Express Workout (provides exercises for three separate days and suggested cardio length add-ons).

The suggested rotation is the same for all four weeks:
Day 1 - workout #1 - Booty Blast + 20 min steady state cardio
Day 2 - shoulders & back (paper workout) + HIIT 10
Day 3 - workout #2 - Booty & Core + 20 min SS cardio
Day 4 - chest & arms (paper workout) + HIIT 10
Day 5 - workout #3 - Single Leg Burnout + 20 min SS cardio
Day 6 - workout #4 - Booty Express + 20 min SS cardio
Day 7 - rest
