Barefoot Fusion Walk is a low impact cardio workout that “combines walking with some dance and pilates inspired movement” from Jessica Smith. I have been doing a lot of Jessica’s free YouTube walking workouts lately and so far, this one is the most intense. It is a moderate intensity workout but it definitely got my heart rate more elevated than her other YouTube walking workouts that I’ve done so far. This was a very enjoyable workout. There were no difficult or challenging moves but Jessica gets your heart rate elevated while mixing in standing core work. I loved this workout and will definitely be returning to it in the coming months.
Barefoot Fusion Walk is 28:30 minutes long; if there was a warm up I was not aware of it, 1:30 minute cool down/stretch. The moves are all pretty basic so I am not going to break this workout down in detail like I do many others. What follows is the moves you will see and the order they appear; however, she returns to some of the exercises several times in the course of the workout. March in place, side steps, heel taps, side to side heel taps that change to side leg raises, tap backs that change to leg raises to the back, step forward and back, step out and in, step to the side and back, cross over step w/ 3 fast steps. All of these exercises have various arm combinations to increase intensity while also better incorporating the core. The workout ends with standing body weight strength work: hinge forward w/ flat back then raise back straight; remain hinged forward and extend arms straight in front of you, alternate reaching one arm behind you then return to front of you; slowly raise and lower one straight leg in front of you while pulsing straight arms behind you; standing circle crunches.
