There is no dedicated warm-up, but since this workout only uses light weights, I really didn't feel it was necessary. As an all-standing workout that emphasizes time efficiency, there is only a short cool-down and a few active stretches. However, when you are doing a 30-minute routine, something has to give.
The music is better than a lot of Ellen's previous offerings and the sound volume is excellent. Ms. Barrett, as usual, is very polished and motivating.
I love the length (30 minutes, shorter than the 45 min of earlier "live" workouts)sometimes you just have 30 minutes! This is very time efficient. No wasted minutes, and you are holding your light weights from warm up to cool down. Lots of relieves (which I love). No planks (which I also love!)--this workoit is all standing,though you will engage your core throughout.
Like her previous workout, this is small space friendly--if you have room for a yoga Matt, you have room for this.
I suggest light dumbbells to start with because you really are continuously moving your arms and so you don't want to be too fatigued too soon. As you do this more often, you'll be able to increase the weight. At the end of the DVD, she says that your energy level will be on high for quite some time after you're done, and she's not wrong. I do this workout on days where I've only gone for a 20 minute walk and I find that doing that little bit of cardio plus this 30 minute routine, is enough for busy days. I highly recommend this DVD.
