This 50 min Firm Parts DVD contains a lower body + cardio and upper body + cardio workouts.You will need dumbbells, short box, tall box, a weighted ball, ankle weights, and an optional barbell for this workout.
After a high energy warmup you move right into your 24 minute lower body workout. Exercises include leg press, squats, and some standing hip extensions with ankle weights, box aerobics, floor aerobics and then move onto a quick stretch.
The 27 min upper body workout starts with Jens (fun) 4-limb cardio section from Super Cardio then moves into 2 sections of ab work. Exercises include upright row, bent row, bicep curls, posterior flys french press, tricep dips, pushups, good mornings, 4 limb aerobics, ball aerobics, and a final stretch.
This is a solid intermediate C+S workout. You can easily modify up or down by adjusting your poundage. The pace is slow enough you can use heavy dumbbells and there is plenty of good cardio. No dread factor and lots of fun segments in it! I received this dvd to review.
