Spread the Smile Dance That Walk: Total Body Circuit
Gina Buber, 2018
Gina leads this workout with 2 backgrounders, each showing various intensities. You will only need dumbbells for these workouts. The DVD contains a 20 min upper body & cardio workout, a lower body & cardio workout, and a 55 total body workout combining them both. There are also two 5 min warm ups & a cool down sections.
Upper Body Circuit: You will alternate 5 min of strength work & 5 min of cardio dance walking. The strength portion consists of 4 upper body exercises & one core exercise done for 1 min each. Exercises include marching up & back, double side tap, bi curls & side step combo, front raise, upper back fly, weighted torso twist, hammer curls, military press, chest pushouts, overhead tri drops, and weighted standing knee pulls.
Lower Body Circuit: You will alternate 5 min of strength work & 5 min of cardio dance walking. The strength portion consists of 4 lower body exercises & one core exercise done for 1 min each. Exercises include samba, side walk with hip rotations, side step outs, mambo cha cha, squats, standing abductions & rear leg raise, deadlifts, calf raises, weighted repeater knees, lunge taps, and side knee to elbow pull.
I rate these both lower intermediate routines but you can easily adjust your intensity by using heavier weights or increasing intensity in the cardio portions. The choreo is easy to follow & Gina's cuing is excellent. I really enjoyed this routine. Its done entirely standing so there is no up & down & I really like the cardio strength intervals. I received this DVD to review.
