Total Body Chisel & Burn is a short metabolic total body workout. And with the right weights it gets pretty intense. I really enjoyed this workout even though there was no Peanut. Though the exercises are done at a controlled pace, this is a circuit workout with very little rest between each exercise. And since the majority of the exercises are compound moves, your heart rate will definitely elevate so that you get some cardio with your strength training. Another excellent metabolic workout from Jessica Smith!
Total Body Chisel & Burn is 29:30 minutes long; first 30 seconds is intro, 5 minute warm up and 2:30 minute cool down/stretch and the last minute is Jessica talking so actual workout time (including warm up and cool down) is 28 minutes. Equipment needed: at least one set of dumbbells (Jessica is using 10 pound dumbbells for everything); the weights listed below are what I used.
- Reverse lunge w/ overhead press (10# DBs)
- Deadlift (30# DBs)
- Repeat #1 & 2
- Negative push up (in full plank, lower body slowly all the way to floor and press yourself back up to knees then back to full plank)
- Repeat #1, 2 & 4
- Alternating diagonal front lunge w/ back row while in lunge (15# DBs)
- Squat w/ woodchop (one 10# DB)
- Repeat #1, 2, 4, 6 & 7
- Repeat 6 & 7
