Naomi Joy Fitness: Rebounder Strength & Cardio

Rebounder Strength & Cardio is another tough cardio + strength rebounder workout from Naomi Joy. The strength work in this workout is endurance based. So light dumbbells and lots of burn out. As Naomi notes in her intro at the beginning, 50 seconds feels like a long time for some of these exercises but she planned it that way. Nevertheless, it burns! This is not a total body workout. Naomi hits your lower body, shoulders, triceps and core. I got an excellent workout and I did enjoy it but it is not my favorite workout of hers. I tend to like total body strength or at least splits that work the upper or lower body thoroughly. This was an intense workout though. And of course my stronger bungees that I got for Christmas kicked up the cardio and made it even more intense (for me). This workout is made up of 2 cardio circuits, 2 strength circuits and core work. But you also have core work in the other circuits, as well, so your core is worked thoroughly in this workout. Each exercise is done for 50 seconds followed by a 10 second recovery. There is a timer in the upper right hand corner of the screen, counting down your intervals. Naomi previews each exercise during the recovery. It is done voice over with excellent music.

Rebounder Strength & Cardio is 56:30 minutes; 1:15 minute intro, 1:45 minute warm up and 6 minute stretch. Equipment: rebounder and dumbbells. Naomi is using a set of 5 pound dumbbells. I used 3, 5 and 8 pound dumbbells. The weights listed below are what I used.
