This is a great workout DVD; the miles are about 13-16 min long. Today, I did miles 3-5 (including the cool down in mile 5) and it took about 45 min to complete. I worked up a sweat & felt like I had a complete/efficient workout. The moves are pretty much Leslie's basic moves--walking in place, side steps, knee lifts, kicks, kick-backs, etc. However, there are some new moves such as the "cha cha" & some skater moves. The strength training sessions in miles 2 & 4 are great--if you are short on time, you can easily combine one of those miles w/ mile 3 (the interval mile) & you've got yourself a short, yet complete workout w/ cardio & strength training combined.
The great thing about all of Leslie's workouts is that you can modify the intensity level based on your own ability & comfortability. I'm able to do higher impact workouts, so i usually jog in place, even when leslie & her walkers are just walking. If some of the moves are too intense for you, you can just modify them; for example, instead of doing the skaters, you can just do side steps. In mile 3, during the speed intervals, leslie & her walkers are doing high impact knee-ups--if those are too much for you, you can just jog in place. Anyway, you get the idea.
I would definitely recommend this DVD.
Warm-Up: Introduces the moves and warms up the body for the more intense workout to come.
Mile One: Classic Cardio. This is Leslie's signature one-mile walk. Very low impact.
Mile Two: Incorporates the "stretchy band" for a good upper body workout.
Mile Three: No stretchy band and is the fastest mile because it incorporates boosted intervals of jogging (very fast walking).
Mile Four: In this mile, you get a deeper muscle workout with the band but it's not quite a true mile because you're stopping to do the strength training. Lunges, squats, bicep curls, tricep kickbacks, etc.
Mile Five: This mile focuses on the abs and it does the trick! Focus on your core and keep moving!
The last 12 minutes of the video is a short ab routine done on the floor. I have not done this part of the video yet because, at the end of the 5 miles, I find that I really don't need it. Even without the ab routine at the end, I have found that during Mile Five, if I really focus and keep my tummy tight, I feel the tightened muscles in my abs the next day (or later in the same day depending on what time I've done my walk). This video is now a permanent staple in my routine and I am proud to say that in just the two weeks I've been using it, I have noticed a difference in my waist line as well as my energy level. This is a must buy for Leslie fans looking to take their walks to the next level.
Because each mile walk can be selected individually from the top menu, you don't have to do the entire DVD. But the warm up and cooldown sessions aren't included in the menu. You can get the warmup (which I recommend) by hitting play all, and get the cooldown by playing Mile 5. So I'd recommend doing 'Play All, doing the warm up, and then going back to the menu to select the miles you want to do. Miles 1, 3 and 5 are brisk cardio programs, while 2 and 4 mix in the stretch band, so the pace is a little slower. Mix and match! If I want a little less than an hour, I really like warmup, mile 1, mile 3 and mile 5 and cooldown. If I want an hour, mix in mile 2 or 4.
This program is fast-paced and aerobic, especially miles 3 and 5. But to Leslie's credit, she gives you options to lower the impact, and in Mile 3 Brianna demonstrates the moves. Trust me, Brianna is still getting a great workout. I wouldn't recommend doing Mile 3 without first doing the warmup or Mile 1, which is low impact but still very aerobic.
Here's what I like about Leslie Sansone's DVDs: They are doable. You can bump up the workout, or keep it simpler, but in the end YOU CAN DO IT.
