Got a belly? Want it blasted? You can either go with Godzilla, or Leslie’s got ya covered.
This is not a pure walking DVD. To truly blast belly fat effectively, you have to go beyond a walking-stroll. Leslie understands this because she’s NOT just walking in her new Belly Blasting Walk DVD.
Part One: 2 FAST MILES WITH BELLY FLATTENING MOVES
You’ll be torso-twisting to activate the core, punching a bit, mini-jumping, jogging in place, and even some easy squatting. The whole body will get involved. I consider this a very light aerobics DVD with some walking thrown in, so show up for this one expecting to do more than just walk. If you have knee issues, this video is STILL for you. The squatting moves are gentle and minimal. You can either give them a shot or modify as needed.
All the moves are super easy and uncomplicated. It’s perfect for peeps who need an active rest day or simply want to keep their workout toned down for whatever reason. The time goes by fast and you’ll have some fun.
- Although the squatting is super-minor, there still needs to be instruction for beginners on how to squat properly. Correct squatting technique is not mentioned in this video.
- The “just walk” wording on the cover is slightly misleading. You’ll be a much happy camper if you go into the workout knowing it’s gonna get a little jumpy.
- I’ve worked up a greater sweat using Leslie’s other DVDs.
Part Two: TARGETED WAIST SLIMMING SESSIONS
This part of the DVD was so enjoyable, that I’d love to see Leslie do a non-walking video totally dedicated to core moves. Her moves are perfect to challenge beginners, yet also great for intermediate exercisers who can use Leslie’s core moves for a light day of abs, extra day of abs, or spontaneous day of abs.
Session 1 focuses on the belly, while Session 2 engages the entire core, including the back. Leslie also throws in some legs, booty and pushups in Session 2. It’s a really good mix of moves that target the areas in a quick, effective way. Excellent stuff!
- Leslie didn’t give any instruction on proper positioning for the head/neck. It’s important to NOT pull on your head or neck when crunching up, but Leslie didn’t mention that.
My take is that the “targeted waist slimming” sessions are what makes this DVD worthwhile. Here’s a clip from the workout:
As you consider the Belly Blasting Walk DVD for your workout pleasure, I suggest you rent my pet Godzilla to breathe fire on your midsection so it gets all melty ‘n stuff. That’s instant belly-blasting right there. Yes?
