Mix and Match Walk Blasters is a collection of ten low impact mini-walks that can be individually combined or done in three premixed workouts.
This DVD includes the following workouts:
Total Body Walk - This is the Easy Walk premix and is the core choreography to all the other walks. This is also considered the warm-up for all the mini walks and thus is generally a lower level ‘light’ walk. Moves for core choreography include side steps, walks forward and back, leg kicks forward, knee raises, hamstring curls ‘kick-backs, side taps with legs.
Advanced Walk- This premix includes the Brisk and Steady Walk, the Interval Boost Walk, and the Short and Sweaty Walk
Fun Walk- This premix includes the Easy Walk and the Walk, Kick and Jab Walk
Light Walk - This is an easy Walk with ‘core choreography’.
Dance Walk- This is core choreography combined with mambos, cha-cha’s, and grapevines.
Walk Kick and Jab Walk- This is a core choreography combined with forward jabs with legs in place, double side steps angling up and back, jab/cross punches with side step, rear leg taps, and side steps with side (round house) kick.
Tummy Trimmer Walk- This is a core choreography and skaters (side to side low impact leaps), kicks, side steps with skaters, knee raises with arm pulls, knee raises across midline, and front kicks.
Short and Sweaty Walk- This segment has the highest speed on the entire DVD program. Moves include core choreography in addition to skaters, single leg tap outs that angle corner to corner, medium height leg kicks, and double side steps with skaters.
Interval Walk- This section has interval ‘boosts’ that run for about a minute. Boosts are jogs moving forward and backward as well as in place. Boosts are done three separate times throughout this workout. These boosts are combined with core choreography.
Upper Body Blast Walk- This is a core choreography with overhead press, forward arm press, bicep curls, tricep press, and side deltoid raise. Leslie does suggest that up to 5 pound weights for the arms can used with this walk.
Lower Body Blast Walk- This segment includes core choreography combined with squats, lunges, and front kicks.
Brisk and Steady Walk- This walk is comprised of core choreography at a brisk pace.
Flexibility Walk - This is essentially the cool down walk. It has core choreography with flexibility moves including shoulder circles, overhead and side arm stretches, hamstring stretches, rotational stretches in the torso, calf stretches, and lower back stretches that complete the walk and cool down.
This DVD allows you to pick your favorite mini-walks and combine the walks in any order of preference for a fully tailored individual workout. This DVD is a compilation of 10 mini-walks. The 10 mini-walks are then combined into several premixes (Fun Walk, Total Body Walk, and Advanced Walk). These mini-walks can also be chosen for a self- created program or done individually. Leslie is always encouraging and is clearly invested in the workouts that she creates and provides.
