Jillian Michaels, 2012

Jillian works out in a gym set with a group of toned background exercisers. Each dvd is in one folder as pictured above. You will dumbbells and tubing for some of the exercises. Each workout is in Jillians famous circuit format with each exercise being performed for 30 seconds to 1 minute and then repeating the circuits. Each workout contains a built in warm-up and cool-down. 

Workout 5 Front Body: (37 min) Exercises include a yoga warm-up, push-up to side plank, crescent hold & trip press, jumping squats, dumbbell cross chop, plie hold & military press, scissor abs, hi knees, crescent hold & cale chest press, 1 leg tri dips, crescent hold & punch, lying tri press, 1 leg squat & shoulder work, and speed rope.

Workout 7 Front Body: (36 min) Exercises include push-ups, side knee pull, walking planks, elevator planks, jack knife, plank hop ins, down dog push-ups, cable kickbacks, W press & quad extension, cable squat & shoulder hold, cable french press, 1 leg push-ups, boat hold, star jumps, chest press & leg drops, side plank hi drops, double under jump rope and pec fly leg drop.

Workout 8 Back Body:  (34min) Exercises include static squat & row, bridge & overhead pull-down, cable upright row, dead-lift & hammer curls, butt kick & bi curls, lunge dip combo with reverse bi curls, weighted jump rope, crescent pose & rear delt fly, balance stick hold, rock star jumps, static good mornings, side to cross over lunge, tubing bike, and suicide line touches. 

Cardio 2: (32 min) Exercises include jump rope, butt kicks, hi knees, side knee pulls, jacks, fast feet, skaters, mogul twists, plie hops, criss cross jacks, upper cuts, circle run, hooks, and burpees.

These are solid intermediate workouts, that you can easily amp up a bit by using heavier poundage than Jillian does . Workouts 5, 6 and cardio are less intense than 7 & 8 . Jillian wastes little time and gets right to work. Jillian offers modifications up & down for some exercises.  Workouts 5-8  include some cardio intervals to keep the heart rate up. These are athletic style workouts that easy to follow. I received these dvds to review.
