PeakFit Challenge Review: Cardio Strength 2 Review

 PeakFit Challenge: Cardio Strength 2
Michelle Dozois, 2011

Michelle leads this 58 min C+S workout with a group of backgrounders in a large white & hardwood set. You will need dumbbells for this workout. Many modifications are shown.

The format of this workout is the same as Cardio Strength 1 but totally different exercises. The ascent is strength work, followed by the climb which is cardio, and then finishes with a 30ish second cardio peak exercise. Using heavy weights the strength work really got my heartrate up and it stayed up for the duration of this.The pace allows for pretty heavy weights but not my heaviest.

Exercises include: punches, cardio lunges, transverse lunge & row, sumo swing to OH bow & arrow, squat- weights to floor-pushup- renegade row-hop up, tuck jumps, jump rope, OH press w/ knee raise, curtsy- side lunge - front raise combo, weighted plyo lunges w/ bi curl, leap and jump shot, mt climbers-jack pushups, 180 floor touch hops, flying jacks, crocodiile plank & tri pushup combo, side lunge-stir the pot -tri kickback, and my core was hit nicely in this one.

This is a full on advanced workout- that had me drenched in sweat by the end. My muscles were worked pretty darn well and my heart was definitely worked! Great strength & cardio combos, fun moves, kickboxing and athletic cardio. Great cuing. This is one of the best in the set IMO.
