Today's Review: 6 Minute Quick Blast Method- Total Body Fat Burner
Tracey Mallett, 2008
This dvd is comprised of eight 6 minute workouts and a warmup & stretch segment. There are 3 lower body cardio segments, four upper body + abs segments, and one ab segment. Tracey leads the workouts in a nice open set with hardwood floors with 2-4 background exercisers-1 showing beginner modifications. You will need a stability ball and dumbbells for the upper body and ab segments. The dvd has the option to "play all" or "select a w/o" -no mix and match option.
First off let me say that you all probably know I LOVE dvds that can be used as addons. I also love splits that include cardio so this w/o is right up my ally! In each 6 minute segment she does a ciruit of 4 exercises 3 times. Tracey is not my fav, but I absolutely love the formatting on her w/o's.
The lower body segments include cardio and really accomplish a lot in only 6 minutes each. She doesnt use handweights but there are a ton of reps so I actually didnt use weights this time but would in the future. Even w/out weights I could feel my buns & thighs being worked with moves such as squats, plyo squats, lunges w/ a rear leg lift, a ballet type leg drag, pliets, etc.
The upper body segments are done on the ball - which was a nice change of pace and I could feel my muscles being worked differently than normal. And each w/o includes an ab move. If you do all 4 UB segments you can thoroughly work all your UB muscles IMO- overhead tricep press, pec fly, bench press, rear delt fly, lat row, pushups -all done on the ball! The ab work includes some fun moves on the ball-twists, crunches, planks, and variations of.
The ab section is done on the ball and felt really effective and she adds a unique twist to traditional ball ab work. Using the ball helped add a bit of intensity IMO.
I would rate this an intermediate workout that could easily be modified up or down to fit anyones needs. I like that Traceys background exercisers are ladies that used her dvds & books and lost weight! Its very motivating :) Tracie has a fairly high pitched voice and pretty thick accent just as an FYI.
