I have been doing a lot of this dvd. The stronger and more fit I get, the more I love it. (Been also working out at the gym, hardcore classes, 2x a week) Super Blast is almost perfect for a quick, intense, cardio that also stretches and lengthens.
What I love most is how my quads/IT bands are deeply stretched in Rainbow Lunge. Brilliant. My confidence in Ellen Barrett is very high. She delivers on what she promises.
I bought this workout, but I haven't been doing it. It's not challenging enough. Also, it's it bit tedious and repetitive. In addition, it's kind of hard on my knees.
I wanted to like it though.
Here is a tip if you want to get an even tougher workout: Go through the video. Toward the end of chapter 5, start chapter 5 over then finish the video. You will really sweat!
I have been lately searching for more challenging workouts, (low impact) ones that really make me sweat, get my heart rate going strong, and that work my muscles. My elllen favorites are Fat Burning Fusion and Slo-Robics. Slo-Robics is not available for sale anywhere. You CAN google it and watch it online for free.
I hope this helps people who want to find challenging, low impact workouts! Ellen is good but not all her workouts are the same, I find these older ones to be exactly what I want.
I couldn't quite put my finger on it. It's not Ellen, she's still a superb instructor. And sure, the music is different to the ones on her previous DVDs but it doesn't have that awful mournful chanting (or wailing?) on her other new offering, Sleek Sculpt Express.
But I gave it another chance, because gosh darn it, I love Ellen's workouts - and she changed me from an "I hate exercise" and a "Once a month is enough" person to an "I've worked out 5 days in a row, now I'm going to plan the workouts I'll do for the next 7 days!" - now after the 2nd & 3rd time doing this workout, it has grown on me and I love the way the workout just flows from one move to another so well.
Super Fast Body Blast is about 30 minutes of cardio and there's quite a bit of repetition of the moves (i.e rainbow lunges - arghh! - I am not a fan of this move as it's uncomfortable on my toes to twist from side to side, so I just perform standard lunges). When you have a short amount of time, the variety in the workout will be less but that's so you can work on/perfect the moves you've learned. The emphasis is always on good form and working out with control. Having both of these means you'll achieve better results.
This DVD is great for when you have a limited amount of time to exercise. But my body doesn't feel like it has been blasted enough after this workout so I like to follow it up with Ellen's other new 30 minute offering (Sleek Sculpt Express).
Super Fast Body Blast + Sleek Sculpt Express = Now that's what I call a body blast! And boy does my booty hurt the next day.
