Densise Austin, 2007
This workout has four 10 minute cardio segments (kickboxing, retro aerobics, dance, and athletic intervals). There is also a 5 min warmup and a 5 min cooldown segment. Its fully programmable so you can mix and match as you like. I really like the fact that each 10 minute segment is a full 10 minutes of cardio-no warmup or cooldown-those are seperate segments. I use these as add-ons to other w/o's so a w/u and c/d would have been a waste of time IMO. There is a "music only" option if you dont want to listen to Denise.
Denise Austin is not known to be the best cuer, but she does pretty well in this one. None of the moves are complicated, most are pretty basic. Even the dance segment wasnt too difficult to follow (and Im NOT a dancer). Some dont like her but I enjoy alot of her w/o's.
The dance segment was the least challenging-probably beginner and the athletic the most-a solid intermediate. The workout as a whole is an intermediate w/o that can easily be modified up or down to fit your needs. Each segment has "mini-routines" in it that are repeated a few times and then you move on to a new routine.
The kickboxing segment includes a side lunge -punch combo, front and side kicks, jab and crosses, etc.
Retro Aerboics include old school classic aerobic moves: V-step, ponies, step touch, hamstring curls, etc.
Athletic intervals include: tire run, cross country skiing, side hops, etc. The moves build in intensity.
The dance segment has a lot of simple dance moves such as: mambo -chacha, chasse, side leap, etc
