Today’s Review: Core Transformer 3D 1,000 Calorie Burn Kit
Raneir Pollard, 2010
This 60 minute total body workout led by Raneir featuring the Core Transformer tubing device. Terry Ann & Linda LeRue are b/g’ers & Linda shows beginner modifications. The set is a cute little gym w/ lockers & fitness paraphernalia around the perimeter. The dvd is broken up so you can complete a 20, 40, or 60 minute w/o. You will use your Core Transformer for the entire workout & won’t need any other equipment.
20 Min W/O: Raneir starts each move off at a slower tempo, then ups the tempo, and adds in plyos to many of the moves. After a quick warmup you move into squats that go into plyo squats, clock squats (move your arms in wide circles while squatting) into a plyo version, crabwalks w/ arm movements into plyos, and finishes with a long set of runners lunge knee pulls.
40 Min W/O: Includes the first 20 minutes and then adds in squat w/ wide chest pulls and adds a balance side left, knee pull w/ a torso twist, a fun golf swing w/ a squat, wood chop squat, standing crunches, figure 8’s adding in plyos, rear leg lift- front arm raise squats, chair pose w/ high Y arms, and a twisted chair pose to really burn out those abs.
60 Min W/O: After finishing the 40 minutes above you now perform each move at tempo and he adds in plenty of plyo moves to really burn those calories. The workout concludes with a nice quick stretch.
Using the Core Transformer with this w/o REALLY amps up the intensity! With the exception of the plyo’s there is literally NO impact and yet my heart rate was up up up! Using the Core Transformer definitely worked my muscles in a new & different way- which is great for variety & fun as well as muscle confusion. I would rate this a low advanced w/o that really targets the core. I consider this a great core cardio w/o that includes some band strength work as well. I received this kit to review.
