This alternates between a few minutes low impact cardio and strength training. The moves are easy enough for everyone to do and there are modifications to make it easier or harder on you. It is all low intensity but still gets results. I love that it is only 20 minutes long so I can fit it in any day. And I really love that there are also target toning sections that are only 10 minutes long.
Because of the intervals it boosts your metabolism and burns fat. Do it 3 times a week and you will definitely notice results within only a few weeks.
Elise Gulan is one of my favorite instructors she is upbeat without being annoying. She talks a lot but will keep you motivated and gives good cuing and countdowns. The routine is fresh and new and not standard of what you usually see. There is some standing ab work that reminds you of her ballet background.
Overall great work out that I do at least once a week. Love it.
SHAPE:20 Minute Makeover DVD has two main sections:
+ 20-minute interval training
+ Target toning segments; arms,abs,lower-body,&cardio
The 20 minute interval training, alternates low intensity moves with high energy cardio. Elise does a great job getting the heart rate up utilizing the high/low technique -using lunge lifts, squat throws, jumping jacks, and plie jumps. The low intensity moves involve holding positions while pulsing then switching to flowing movements. She also incorporates balance, so grab a chair just in case, there are some wobbly moments =)
These twenty minutes are fierce!!!
Targeted Toning Segments - 10 min. each. These 10 minute segments are INTENSE! Elise mentions stream-lining the body, several muscles groups are involved in addition to the targeted muscle. She gets a lot done in such little time - it is unbelievable how effective these exercises are!!
ARM SEGMENT: Begins with plank movements also hitting glute & core. Next, push-ups followed by planks with flowing knee movements. Elise moves on to triceps - this is a TOUGH TOUGH set. Last couple minutes Elise hits biceps, shoulders, anterior deltoids, & rhomboids. I used three pound weights for this, and barely made it through.
AB SEGMENT: The first four minutes, moves are done sitting hinged forward position. Then Elise moves to a round back position - continues with variations of this with bent & straight leg positions. She finishes with bent knee bicycle position increasing intensity by straightening legs & lifting arms.
LOWER BODY SEGMENT: Starts with plies and releves, great calf work =) She moves onto second position plie forward pulses targeting inner thighs, downward pulses for quads continually upping the intensity. Elise finishes with lunges, triangle pose with pulses, and glute lifts. Advanced exercisers have the option to use a weight to increase intensity.
CARDIO BLAST: The go to move (step touch/bob & weave/skating reach & tap)is alternated between high/low exercises; squat pulses with jumps, curtsy dips, jump rope, and football drills.
SHAPE 20 minute Makeover is one of the BEST fitness dvds I have come across. I highly recommend this for intermediate through advanced exercisers. Beginners only should get this if they are serious about wanting to improve their fitness level and don't get easily discouraged.
