There are three 30+ min routines in this series. Jillian leads these workouts with 2 backgrounders, one showing modification options, in a studio. You will need dumbbells and an optional mat. Each routine contains a warm up & cool down. You will perform 4 circuits done 2X each with one min of cardio between circuits.
Lower Body: (36 min) This routine also includes lots of great upper body exercises combined with the compound lower body work. Exercises include 3 way lunges with bi curls & front raise, deadlift & push-outs, floor touch jacks & star jumps, one leg squat & hop, long jump zig-zag combo, static chair hold, sumo plyo scissors, curtsy to diagonal lunge & military press, lunge drops with static overhead hold, rockstar jumps down to plank donkey kicks, tripod glute raises, superman, static warrior shifts, plyo sprinter, toe squats dropping low, deadlifts, and plyo lunge -plyo squats.
Upper Body: (34 min) Exercises include walk out pushups, single leg elevator pushups, rocking cobra, static lunge & single arm row, criss cross jacks, wide rows & upper back fly, renegade row & pushup, bridge hold with: pec flys, tri drops, bench press, and lat pullovers; hinged row variations, overhead tri press, single arm burpees, pike pushups, bi side lunge & dumbbell serve, static lunge & overhead tri drops, squat with curls & lat extension, soccer kicks with arm circles. There is a bit of light lower body in this.
Core: (32 min) Exercises include windmill, balance leg raise & elbow crunch, oblique sumo dumbbell drop, plank & tuck jumps, lunge knee pulls, sit up roll backs to jump ups, boat to X extension, boat bicycle, side plank weighted thread the needle with hip drops, diagonal hi knee run, run in planks, plank to dolphin, sit up & rotate to plank knee pulls, 3 way burpees, L hold to crab shifts, V leg crunch, and weighted plyo sledgehammer.
I rate these high intermediate to advanced routines but the modifier is great - making this set great for most all exercisers. These are your classic Jillian circuits, that I love. You accomplish a lot with little wasted time and Jillian offers her normal great cuing and tough love motivation. Straight forward choreo and drill style make these favorites of mine. You could use the lower body routine as total body if you used heavier weights. Jillian and crew use lower poundage, but I found I could go heavier to them - moderate poundage worked for me. I received this workout to review.
