Review: Xtreme Timesaver Training
Jackie Warner, 2010 **** (4 of 5 stars)
This is a 32 minute strength workout that got my heartrate up enough to count as a cardio w/o! There is a 3 minute w/u and a 2 min c/d included. The set is nice and looks like a gym- w/ brick walls. Jackie w/o's or walks around giving form pointers to the 2 background exercisers. One shows modifications and uses no weights. You will only need dumbbells for this w/o.
After a nice quick to the point warmup you move into three circuits focusing on different body parts. You conclude w/ a nice stretch. The w/o is shoulder heavy and she says that in the beginning. And as I said, this w/o REALLY got my heartrate up there, I was sweating a ton, and my muscles were really being worked despite using pretty low poundatge (I was still a bit sore). There is also some balance work but not a lot of ab work.
Glutes & Shoulders: The exercises include a static pliet with a shoulder circle, static lunge w/ a rear delt raise, curtsey dip w/ a side kick, and a sqat w/ a kettlebell type swing.
Arms & Quads: Moves include static squat w/ a bicep curls, lunge w/ an overhead tricep press, lunge w/ chest press, and a dip punch kick combo.
Hips, Chest, and Back: Exercises include static squat w/ a dumbbell push pull move, a bridge w/ a pec fly, a crawl to plank/ pushup & military press, then on all fours you do an elbow to knee pull w/ the dumbbell.
Core & More: Moves include; a static dip w/a woodchop, preacher & bicep curls w/ a knee pull, and a kneeling leaning side raise.
I would rate this is a high intermediate w/o because it is non-stop. It really does pack a punch. I like Jackie as a lead- she kindof reminds me of Jillian. Jackie is superfit! Her cueing and form pointers are excellent in this and its sequenced very nicely.
