A couple weeks ago, Jessica R. sent me her dvd to try for blog review. I love ball workouts, so I was so excited to try it!!
Here are some pictures of what the dvd and workouts look like.
The main Menu
So with this dvd you get a stretching segment and then 3 workout segments.
I liked that the instructor took the time to talk about proper form and technique. Each segment has 3 exercises and you do each exercise 3 times.
I was expecting this dvd to be more of a "workout" than it was. I would consider this a beginner ball workout and/or those who are doing rehab or want light stretching with the ball. There are alot of rest times in between exercises and sets, so my heart rate did not stay up high enough for this to be considered a "workout" for me. Nothing wrong with that-will be using this dvd in the future for rest/stretching days.
Jessica's website about the dvd can be found here:
