Warm Up (5 Min)
Former contestants from the Biggest Loser TV lead the warm-up. Some sample moves are squats, jogging in place with high knees or butt-kicks, knee up/opens, alternating lunge and twist towards knee, and Frankenstein touches.
Cardio Max Weight-Loss Level 1 (25 min)
Bob Harper leads Level 1. The workout is designed in short combinations. You do several combinations on one side before you switch to the other. The first move in the first combination is split squats with one weight. Then, you stay in split squat position and do one hand row. Next, you combine split squat with row. You add military press. So the final combo is split squat, row, press arm into air.Read more ›
I wear a bodybugg to measure my daily caloric burn and a digital display gives me a readout as to how much I burn during a workout in order to allow me to compare it to other workouts and also see how much it increases my metabolism after the workout since strength burns less than cardio during a workout but continues burning calories long after while also building muscle. I say that so you know caloric burn was based upon scientific measurement rather than perceived exertion.
This, like most BL DVDs combines workout components that allow you to burn more calories in less time while not feeling like you are killing yourself doing it. Certain components burn greater calories such as using large muscle groups while also working out smaller ones,, card bursts that bring your heart rate up then allow it to drop again ( just as speeding up and slowing down your car uses more gas, than going one speed fast or slow the same distance, studies have shown your body does too) , and combining strength and cardio in the same workout. This does all that so your perceived exertion feels lower but it's a five star calorie burner due to a well thought- out scientific burn. But only if you combine two workouts...these are very short routines.
Bob is an exceptional trainer as always but this, like many others using the contestants, has some flaws.Read more ›
