Tracey Staehle's Total Body Bootcamp Review: Metabolic Conditioning

Tracey Staehle's Total Body Bootcamp: Metabolic Conditioning
Tracey Staehle, 201  

This dvd has three 35-41 minute workouts on it. Each workout contains a warmup, workout, finisher, tabata drills, and a cooldown The dvd is chaptered very well and you can choose the tabata segments or finishers from the menu. You will need a variety of equipment for each workout but equipment options are always shown. The set looks like an actual bootcamp gym with 3 -4 background exercisers who all work out at their own pace. One exerciser shows exercise & equipment modifications. Tracey coaches some of the workouts and Dustin cocahes some. The warmup & cooldown are the same on each workout.

Workout One: Dustin coaches this 39 min cardio workout. You won't need any equipment for this. Each round consists of 30 seconds of (tough) work followed by 15 seconds of rest. There are a total of 6 exercises in each round & you do 4 rounds. Exercises include: burpees, squat hops, plyo lunges, plank jacks or plank moguls, Mt. climbers, and star jacks. 10/15 Finisher: squat hops & plank moguls for 8 rounds w/ a short rest between moves. Tabata 20/10: lying ab toe touches & ab leg scissors with a short rest between exercises.

Workout Two: Tracey coaches this 41 min strength & cardio workout. You will need a med ball, a KB or DB, and optional TRX and gliding discs. Each round consists of 4 exercises for 40 seconds followed by 20 seconds of rest performed for 4 rounds. Exercises include: roundhouse kick & squats, KB or DB frog squat jumps, med ball slam, and TRX squat jumps, TRX (gliding disc or no equipment) Mt. climbers. 10/15 Finisher: squat & plank frog hop-ins w/ a short rest between exercises for 8 rounds.Tabata 20/10: squat hops & static squat holds- no rest between moves for 8 rounds.

Workout Three: Dustin coaches this 35 min cardio + strength workout. You will need a band/tube and a med ball. This workout structure is you perform the same exercise 4 times for 50 seconds each with a 10 second rest between exercises. There are four different exercises and you get a longer rest period between each new exercise. Exercises include: med ball squat adding a hop, band pushups to Mt climbers, band lunge to plyo lunge, band squat & OH press to band jump squats. 10/15 Finisher: long leg ab holds & bicycles w/ a short rest between exercises for 8 rounds. 20/10 Tabata: hi knee sprints & burpees.

I rate these advanced workouts when using heavy poundage and W/O #1 is an advanced cardio workout! Love that its go at your own pace, LOVE the sequencing, love all the options/ modifications shown. The workouts remind me a bit of the S90 workouts- which I love. The sequencing & short rest periods allow you to really give it your all during the work periods. No wasted time but not rushed at all- you really make the most of your workout time in these. The time really flys by in these. Consensus: LOVE the set & can really see getting visible results!!! I received this dvd to review.
