I have several Core Fusion DVDs. Before I started P90X, Core Fusion Pilates Plus and Body Sculpt were in my regular exercise rotation and until getting Bootcamp, I would say that they were my favorites. I also own three other Core Fusion DVDs but didn't feel as positively about them. I was excited to read the pre-release reviews about Bootcamp and thought that this might be a nice change from the P90X style of training, adding Liz's more feminine strength building touch.
I was not disappointed. As Yoga Girl said, I'll leave the details of each 10 minute section to the first reviewer. I did the entire workout with the addition of the 5 minute bonus boxing section, for a total of about 70 minutes. I used a 6 lb. medicine ball in lieu of a playground ball and can I say that this morning I am SO SORE in places that P90X doesn't get to? My booty is sore in new and wonderful places as are my intercostal muscles around my ribcage.
This is a great workout! I burned over 500 calories doing the whole thing and considering that included 15 minutes of abs and 10 minutes of back strengthening, stretching and shavasana none of which are big calorie burners, that is a great total calorie burn!
I too wondered about the sequencing of putting the back strengthening/stretch/shavasana bonus section BEFORE the 5 minute bonus abdominal section.Read more ›
This is not a barre workout as the last review stated, but it is a nice change of pace for those who like their cardio served at a higher intensity level. I have been doing a lot of high impact, super intense cardio over the last few years. It was nice to work up a nice sweat and raise my heart rate without doing round after round of power jumps!
I won't give a breakdown of the program as the last reviewer already did that. I will agree though that I was also hesitant about doing burpees (jump backs) with only that playground ball for balance although I have had lots of previous experience with them. What I did instead was use a medicine ball for that move, it was much sturdier. The only problem with that option is my med ball is 12lbs so for the next moves I had to switch back to the playground ball because the 12lb ball became a bit heavy. Purchasing a lighter med ball could remedy that. That's the only reason I only gave the program 4 stars.
So far I've used this twice. I felt more challenged on the 2nd round because I was more aware of the moves.
As with all my experiences so far with the Exhale Core Fusion series, it was positive. It is a nice change of pace from what I've been used to because it involves more of a mind/body connection. If you're looking for something different that will give you an intense workout without lots of jumping and high impact moves give this one a try.
