Cindy Whitmarsh's Ultra Fat Burning Workout & Natural Journeys Discount Code!




Today's Review: Natural Journeys- The Ultra Fat Burning Workout
Cindy Whitmarsh, 2007

Cindy leads this 45ish minute workout with 4 other exercisers. Cindy and another lady show advanced options, 1 exerciser shows beginner, and 1 intermediate. They use a 4# med ball, dumbbells, jumprope, and a stability ball. Someone shows the moves using no props, or they suggest an alternative. They are working out on a back patio w/ a nice pool in the background. Its a very nice set. The workout is divided up into segments w/ a screen that comes up introducing the next segment. The dvd is chaptered. You repeat the moves in each section 3 or so times.

Warmup Stretch: some cardio moves and some stretching get you started.

Cardio: First is various jump rope moves for one minute. She does some fancy stuff but says to do whatever you want. One guy doesnt use a rope at all. Then you pick up your medball and do a jack while throwing the ball overhead, a side to side squat, jumping back and forth over the jumprope. You do the sequence 3 times.

Shoulder Weights: Using dumbbells they do upright rows, overhead pulse, lateral raises and rotator cuffs. Repeat a few times.

Cardio: You start with blowouts (burpees), then you jump back and forth with your med ball between your knees, and then do a football shuffle/quick feet,  This section is tough!

Biceps: With dumbbells, alternating bicep curls, both weights in one hand concentration curls, and a few other bicep curl variations.

Cardio Toning: Repeater legs to the side and back, scissor jumps, pushups, Mt. climbers, shuffle squats while putting down and picking up med ball , ab twists while holding med ball, side lunge w/ a leg lift. Another tough segment!

Toning: All on the stability ball: (one modifier does the moves on the floor) frog leg lifts, flutter legs, shins on the ball-pulling legs in, oblique crunches w/ med ball on chest, twists, dips off the ball with the med ball between knees (one modifier uses a stair, one on the floor), tricep extensions w/ the med ball. Then there are some side reaches not on the ball.

Cool Down Stretch: led by someone else. I didnt do this segment.

 I would say this is a low advanced or high intermediate workout: jumproping, blowouts, and alot of the cardio moves she did were real calorie burners. You could definately heavy up on the dumbbells and use a heavier med ball for the toning moves. The toning segments arent all that long though and there isnt a a lot of weighted lower body work. What I often do is use medium/ light dumbbells and stick w/ the lighter med ball and use this for a cardio day.

I really like that there are 3 different modifiers so you really have your choice of what you want to do. I wish more workouts included both a beginner and an advanced modifier. Love Cindy, one of my favorite instructors- great personality and cueing. She always includes fresh and fun moves to keep the w/o interesting.
