The most fun yet!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kickbox Fastfix [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I haven't enjoyed the last couple of JM's DVD's as much as her earlier one's and found Shed and Shred a bit tired and not up to her usual tough standards.
This one I love - its a total departure from the norm, the only familiar features are a couple of the girls and the fact that its built up out of circuits so each section is done twice.
The format is simple (and brings out my only niggle/moan about this DVD - but I'll save that til the end) and it consists of 3 20 min workouts, (and they are only 20min!) each made up of 4 5-6 min circuits. One workout focusing mostly on the upper body, one focusing on the lower body and the third on the abs. Though they all work the core pretty hard - its hard not to with kick boxing. The lower body routine is a real cardio blast and will get your heart rate the highest, though all of them will get you breathing hard and sweating hard. All three routines consist of some simple kick/punch reps, as well as some set kick punch combos that are really great fun, and a few traditional weights exercises thrown in for good measure. (Any Tai-Bo fans out there will possibly find them a little simplistic - but still good fun).
I thoroughly enjoyed these workouts, and the time seriously vanishes while you're doing them - so the niggle??
I found them all too short - this dvd would hit absolut perfection if there was a "play all" menu feature! Though its not too much of a pain to use the menu to do them all back to back - and that gives you a tip-top cardio full body workout that is about as much fun as you can have while still working hard.
