Today's Review: Personal Training with Jackie: 30 Day Fast Start
Jackie Warner, 2011
This dvd has a 25 minute upper body & a 25 min lower body workout that can be combined or done separately. Jackie works out in a brick gym w/ 2 backgrounders. You will need a light set of dumbbells for these workouts.
This is a power pyramid workout; you alternate two exercises for one rep, then two, all the way up to ten reps. The pace is fast so you really do have to use light weights (Jackie rec's 5 # dumbbells). Jackie pairs biceps & chest, back & triceps, lower body & shoulders, and core/ abs.
Upper Body Workout: Super quick warmup, pushup & kneeling hammer curl, bench press & bi curl, fly & outer curl, row & overhead tricep, upright row & kickback, and straight arm lat raise & straight arm kick back. Lower Body, Shoulders, & Abs Workout: squat & front raise, deadlift & lat raise, sumo squat & military press, crunch & clam crunch, toe touch & scissor and frog crunch & reach.
This workout hits your upper body more than the lower and the ab moves are tough & lots of reps so my abs were also thoroughly worked! Jackie is an awesome lead- great cuing and lots of variety. Time really flys in this one! If you are a fan of light weight high rep workouts- this is the workout for you! She really accomplishes a lot in a short amount of time. I received this dvd to review.
