Kukuwa Nuamah, 2011
This African dance workout dvd contains two 30 minute workouts: Intermediate and Advanced. Each workout contains a separately chaptered learn the moves tutorial. Kukuwa works out in a cute outdoor courtyard set with a group of male & female background exercisers. You won't need any equipment for this workout. Great upbeat music!
All the moves are authentic African dance moves – so while I may reference aerobic steps, those are as close a description I can provide to you so you can get a feel for the workout. Each song has its own little routine so there is very little TIFTing – which is great to prevent boredom & to keep things interesting & fun while shaking your boombsey! Both workouts contain mixed impact African dance moves.
Intermediate Workout: (30 minutes) After a fun dance warmup Kukuwa includes both vertical and horizontal movements with plenty of arm & head movements to get you moving & raise your heart rate. Exercises include: hops, skips, toe taps, hand rolls, shaking your boombsey, football shuffle, and many of the moves hit your core!
Advanced Workout: (30 minutes) After a great dance warmup Kukuwa again includes both vertical and horizontal movements with lots of arm & head movements to get you shaking your boombsey & get your heart rate up. Exercises include: chug, claps, skips, shoulder shrugs while moving your boombsey, knee ups w/ raise the roof arms, side knee ups, quick African sytle ham curls, etc.
I would rate both workouts intermediate in terms of choreography and cardio level! Great upbeat energy & music- you can really tell Kukuwa is having a good time and doing something she is very passionate about. This is a very feel good workout- sure to leave you worked out & smiling. Great to adapt to a rebounder. Received this dvd to review.
