Unlike the earlier 5-mile workout, there are no walking aids such as hand weights or stretchy band. The first mile is Leslie's basic walking steps. The second mile focuses on the upper body and arms. The third mile focuses on legs (with some squats). The fourth mile focuses on the abs and waistline. And the fifth mile is a "fast mile" but with only one brief section of "boosted walking," which is optional.
This is also versatile enough both for beginners and advanced walkers and for short or long workouts. Like Leslie's earlier 5-mile workout, each individual mile can be done separately, or they can be done in combinations of 2, 3, 4, or 5 miles. And unlike the earlier 5-mile workout, this one has separate warm up and cool down segments. If you do 1 mile a day (each one is 12-14 minutes) plus the 5-minute warm up and 9-minute cool down and stretch segment, you have 5 different workouts of less than 30 minutes each, one for each day of the week. If you do the warm up, all 5 miles, and the cool down, it takes an hour and 22 minutes.
I usually prefer to walk outside than to walk in front of the TV, but when I'm pressed for time (as is usual during the work week) or the weather's bad, there's just no better or faster low-impact workout than Leslie Sansone's. Fortunately, I have a fairly large library of her workouts, which provides variety. I've been doing them 3-4 times per week for several years now.
This is a very welcome addition to my workout library. It would also be a good place to start if you've never tried one of Leslie's workouts before.
Some of the music is new, some of it is from WATP for Abs and earlier but sounds better. Thankfully, we are spared another round of "New Attitude" and "Everybody." Hallelujah indeed! Leslie's patter is pleasant and useful.
Really glad to see this workout and hope (I think?!?) that she incorporates some of the new leg moves in future workouts.
You can start with a warm-up, which is on the menu, select the walk you want and then select the cool-down. The fact the warm-up and cool-down is on the menu really makes it nice. Some of her videos don't offer this and it makes it a bit rough --- you have to do your own cool-down.
These are really great exercises. You can, if you like, add boosters such as the weight belt. With all of Leslie's videos you can go at your own speed and not feel intimidated. But, the steps are all easy and natural. The video is lots of fun. Having to change the menu to warm-up and cool-down is a bit cumbersome but not bad. She goes right into the next mile. The warm-up and cool-down are a bit longer than I like. But, it's probably best to take the time and do them with her. I actually prefer her videos that allow you to do the warm-up, walk and cool-down without having to change the menu.
When you do the warm-up, the walk and the cool-down, allow for changing the menu, the times comes to an average of about 29-30 minutes.
