This set contains 2 DVDs. The main DVD has three 22-26 min workouts and disc 2 has one 8 min ab routine. Nikki performs level 2 and has 2 backgrounders performing levels 1 & 3. You will need dumbbells for this routine. The ladies work out in a spacious suite with a view of the city. You can choose one workout from the main menu. Each routine contains a quick warm up & cool down.
Burn: (22 min) In this workout you perform alternating cardio & strength exercises nonstop. The interval sets are performed for 45 seconds each, then round 2 for 30 sec each, and finally round 3 for 20 seconds each.

8 Min Ab Blaster: you perform 2 four minute rounds. Each exercise is 20 seconds with a short rest between the rounds. Exercises include toe reaches, plank side kne pull, reverse crunch & kick out, side plank, & v twist,
Nikki starts each exercise at level one and then moves into level 2 and a mod shows a level 3 option. Following Nikki I would rate this a high intermediate routine, though there are true 3 levels offered. Lots of multi-muscle exercises and she combines exercises to get cardio in the strength exercises. You can really accomplish a lot in a short time with these routines. It is pretty non-stop but not a rushed pace. The pace allows for moderate to heavier poundage so you can really get a great strength & cardio workout in these. Nikki is a great instructor, I like her demeanor-not too bubbly and not too calm either. I received this DVD set to review.
