Review: Longevity: Leaning Out
Tracie Long, 2010
Tracie leads this 50 min AWT workout in a cute brick gym looking set with no background exercisers. You will need dumbbells and ankle weights for this workout. The dvd includes shorter workout options.
This workout is mostly strength work but includes some mid-impact cardio bursts. Most of the strength moves are unique combinations of exercises that get your heartrate up there. You begin with a nice warmup, move into standing strength & cardio work, then move to the floor for more toning, core work and a stretch. She does a great job of adding in functional fitness, cardio, strength, core, and balance work. She combines the exercises in unique ways with smooth transitions and varies tempos to keep everything interesting.
Strength Exercises include: sumo squats w/ hi pull, balancing rear delt fly, around the world lunge combo, functional lunge while picking up and curling or pressing dumbbell over head, pliet w/ bicep pumps, deadlift variations, etc. Cardio Work includes: shuffles, jacks, skiing, jogging, kicks, etc. Floor Work includes: diving pushups, push up to side plank w/ dumbbell pull, lying spinal work, unique lying leg work w/ ankle weights, bridge kicks, V sit w/ rotation, heel touches, etc and concludes with a stretch.
I rate this a solid intermediate workout. If you are a fan of Tracie and/or Firms of day's past- you will LOVE this. Very smooth transitions with no wasted time- she moves right into the next set of exercises. No fancy footwork- all easy to follow and fun to do! Tracie's cuing and form, as always, are impeccable. She does a fantastic job of creating fun, high energy workouts! I received this dvd to review.
