Workout Review: Denise Austin Quick Cardio Burn
Overall I thought this was a pretty good workout. The entire DVD consisted of a 10 minute warm up, two 20 minute workouts and a 5 minute cool down. I did the entire DVD in about an hour and felt like I got a good total body workout. There is a lot of jumping and pliometrics, so it may not be the best for someone that has sensitive knees or ankles. One of the 20 minute workouts is a sculpting workout using weights. This was really effective and did double duty, since most of the arm exercises involved some type of lunge or squat too.
I actually cheated and watched this on my computer while listening to my Lady Gaga Pandora station. I turned off the volume completely, so I can't really say if Denise was annoying or not. I did notice that her hair was down and DID NOT MOVE the entire time, even during jumping jacks.....get me some of her hairspray!
