REVIEW~ X-TrainFit XTFMAX Cardio Max

Happy Halloween!!!


X-TrainFit XTFMAX Cardio Max
Stephanie Oram, 2014

Stephanie leads this 26 min cardio workout with 3 backgrounders, all showing various modifications. You wont need any equipment for this workout.

Each exercise is performed for 40 seconds on/ 20 off or 30 on/ 30 off. and the circuit is performed two times.  After a warm up, exercises include figure 8 run, plank frog jacks, power knee ups, side & back knee repeaters, hi & wide knee run, burpee- climbers, 90 degree hop & tuck jumps, Mt climbers with a knee cross, and a cool down.

I rate this an high intermediate workout, but as with all XTF workouts - choose your modifier & get a workout that is truly yours. Stephanie provides great cuing & motivation throughout. I received this DVD to review.

REVIEW: X-TrainFit XTFMAX Abs



X-TrainFit XTFMAX Abs
Stephanie Oram, 2014

Stephanie leads this 24 min core workout with 3 backgrounders, all showing various modifications. All work is done on the floor and the exercisers are barefoot.

After a seated warm up, exercises include bridge leg extensions, side plank, V twist, toe touches, side leg drops, side lying knee crunch, plank, butterfly crunches, and a cool down.

I rate this a high intermediate routine following Stephanie - she starts at level one and then progresses to level 4. If you did level 4 for the entirety it would be advanced! As with all XTF workouts, this is interval style, each workout is performed for a minute or so. I received this DVD to review.

X-TrainFit XTFMAX Definitions REVIEW



X-TrainFit XTFMAX Definitions
Stephanie Oram, 2014

Stephanie leads this 42 min total body strength workout with 3 backgrounders, all showing various modifications. You will need dumbbells or exercise tubing for this workout. The advanced modifier also uses an exercise ball.

You go through the routine 3 times using heavy, then medium, then light weights. After a warm up, exercises include outer & inner bi curls, French press, front & side raises, chest press, fly- lat row-upper back fly,calf raises, deadlift, sumo squat - dip,  and a cool down.

I rate this a solid intermediate routine following Stephanie but there are modification options and you can always adjust your poundage. Very well rounded & hits every muscle except the core. Each exercise is performed for a minute or so & the workout is interval style. I received this DVD to review.

X-TrainFit XTFMAX Hardcore REVIEW



X-TrainFit XTFMAX Hardcore
Stephanie Oram, 2014

Stephanie leads this 43 min abs, glutes, thighs & back workout with 3 backgrounders, all showing various modifications. You will need dumbbells or exercise tubing for this workout. The advanced modifier also uses an exercise ball.

This is an athletic pilates workout in my opinion. After a warm up, exercises include lying frog legs, pretzel, side plank hip drops, side leg lifts, inner thigh raises, V twists, oblique crunches, lying low back work, plank series, reverse frog leg series, leg circles, bird dog, elevator plank and a  cool down.

I rate this a high intermediate to low advanced routine, depending on who you follow. Each exercise is performed interval style - for a minute or so. Stephanie starts with level one & progresses to level 4 for each exercise. She is a very down to earth instructor & provides plenty of form reminders & cuing. I received this DVD to review.
