Cathe! The Shock Cardio Series has 11 awesome workouts so it may take me awhile : ) Cardio Core Circuit is a fun workout and is a great addition to my cardio workout choices. This is the workout I will be reviewing today.
What is it?
CCC is a 51-minute advanced, interval workout. It has a unique blend of cardio, cardio/core and pure core exercises. I love bootcamp style workouts and that's just what this is. The best thing is that the only equipment you'll need is a mat!
Who is it for?
This workout is more advanced but if you have a strong core you could do it without any issues. The choreography is very basic so you won't be tripping over your feet. Each round repeats three exercises so I found it to be easier to concentrate on form. Now that's not to say this workout is easy by any means!
What to expect?
The workout starts with a 5 minute warm-up then there are 5 cardio/core rounds. Each round has a cardio, cardio/core and core only exercise so you get a well-rounded workout. The rounds vary from 6-10 minutes each and the workout ends with a 6-minute stretch. The first time I did this workout I was sore in my core as well as my back. The second time through I really felt my core kick in and noticed very little discomfort in my back. I promise, you will notice a difference in your core if you regularly do this workout. Between the mountain climbers, the squat thrusts and the triangle choke-holds, you will have an awesome core in no time!

How many of you workout at home? Do you like to see workout reviews or my weight routines?
I do all of my cardio with DVD workouts as well as my strength program but the strength program is easy to modify for use at the gym.
Let me know!
