Jari Love: Get Extremely Ripped Bootcamp Review

Jari Love, 2010 

Jari leads this 76 min. bootcamp w/o with 5 backgrounders in a dark set w/ spotlights. Jari performs the moves at a high intermediate level and the b/g'ers show intensity modifications- one does the cardio on a bike (nice option for those w/ cardio equipment). You will only need dumbbells for this workout. The dvd is chaptered very well & you can choose from various premixes.

Before each segment a screen comes up with a healthy living tip & announces the next exercise and what poundage each exerciser is using. The last 30 seconds of each exercise is counted down w/ an on screen timer. All the exercises are bootcamp in nature- i.e. nothing complicated, no fancy choreo. The dvd is circuit style and each circuit starts w/ ab work, then multi-muscle strength moves, and finishes with high intensity cardio. Each exercise is performed for 3 minutes! Jari does a great  job of making each tough 3 minute block do-able. She takes out the arms for a while and then add them back in, or does 3 reps of high intensity w/ 1 rep of low intensity, etc.

Exercises include: hopping moguls w/ a tap, crawling pushups, plank rows & kneeling back rows (unique!), crab walk- tri dip- glute lift- hand tap to toe, lunge-bicep- Arnold press, deep lunge w/ shoulder press, reverse crunch & pike, front raise- lunge & side squat, chest & tricep press, jump rope,  V sit rowers, quick quick slow plyo lunges, jack & tuck jumps, etc.

I'm going to come right out and say I am typically not a Jari fan. This is the 3rd w/o Ive tried from her SO I was surprised that I really enjoyed the workout! Done following Jari I rate this an intermediate/ advanced w/o. Follow a mod for an easier or more challenging workout. I found the workout enjoyable, unique, and challenging! I like the 3 min blocks- you can really focus on the moves & push yourself. If you are a Jari fan- you'll like this one. If youre not- give it a try, you just may surprise yourself! I received this dvd to review.
