Boost your weight loss
on September 11, 2011
I did the "Sculpt & Burn Body Blitz" for the first time today and it did make my body break a light to medium sweat. I was a little sore about 5 hours later.
The DVD has the warm up, the cool down, and four individual and self-contained ten minute workouts. I did all six parts from begining to end, and I thought it was good. You have the option of doing any one workout or all four or any combination, with or without the warm up and cool down. It also has the option for instruction or music only. There's also a 30 day recommendation for anyone who needs guidance on what workout to do and what days to do it on.
Here's the breakdown.
Warm up (5 minutes): This has a few unusual moves which I have never seen before this video. I enjoyed it.
Mixed Martial Arts (10 minutes): I found this workout and the Athletic Conditioning workout a little challenging, and for both, I had to modify some moves. Both aerobic workouts moved your body along.
Athletic Conditioning (10 minutes): Please see the martial arts workout for info.
Kettlebell-Inspired (10 minutes): Don't worry. You don't need a kettlebell for this one. Denise Austin and the other co-exercisers use one light dumbbell. The extra light weight boosts the calorie burn and intensity. The movements were practically non-stop, but with only one light weight, one can do it. I liked this one.
Cardio Sculpt (10 minutes): This one uses two light weight dumbbells. But again, the weight is light, with the same purpose: boosting calorie burn. I liked this one too.
Cool down (5 minutes): Some stretches are a little difficult, but you do what's comfortable or what you can.
Finally, Ms. Austin has two male and two female demonstrators, so this is intended for both men and women. Ms. Austin is chatty, instructive, and encouraging. I recommend this video.
