Viveca leads this 56 minute toning workout in a cute grey gym with purple accents. She works out with 2 background exercisers. You will need optional weighted gloves (light dumbbells would also work) for the upper body segment. This dvd includes Arms, Butt & Thighs, and Abs section. You can play all or skip to the next section with your remote.
Arms: The addition of weighted gloves and/or light hand weights really makes this a tough but fun upper body workout. Exercises include: bicep curl variations, long arm wrist flexion, tri kickbacks, long arm tri work, back fly, 1 arm side tri pushups, and elevator planks. Viveca includes tempo changes to keep your muscles guessing.
Butt & Thighs: This is a floor work section- I started with ankle weights & ended up taking them off as my buns & thighs were on fire! Exercises include: donkey kick variations including side kicks, crossovers, extensions, and long leg kicks. Bridge work including: bridge squeezes, butterfly, and single leg bridge variations.
Abs: This is a floor section that really hits the core. Exercises include: V sit w/ arm pump, V drops, V punch & twists, full V sit w/ legs extended, crunch variations, long leg bicycle, wide leg scissor crunches, plank, plank knee pull and a side knee pull plank.
I would rate this is a high intermediate workout as my lower body was BURNING by the end! I found this dvd to be unique and fun and I think I’ll be feeling it tomorrow. Viveca has a great energy and her cuing and form pointers are fantastic. She does a great job of including unique twists on tried & true toning exercises- love that little to no equipment is required. Received this dvd to review.
