This morning I had the opportunity to try Core de Force – MMA Speed. Now that the workout is over and I’ve had a chance to catch my breath, I wanted to give you a quick review.
This Core de Force review is going to be QUICK, much like the MMA Speed workout.
- The workout is about 25 minutes in length.
- The workout starts with a 2 minute warmup.
- The workout contains six 3 minute rounds. Each round repeats the same combination for 3 minutes. (Each new round is a new combination.)
- Each round also contains two 30 second “conditioning spikes”. The spikes are designed to create a HIIT (high intensity interval training) type effect. The spikes really ramp up the intensity.
- After the workout is over, you get 2-3 minutes to stretch/cool down.
Some random comments/thoughts: about the workout:
- Just prior to the workout is a “Learn It & Work It” session. This 6 minute session is designed to teach you the moves properly. If you do the Learn It & Work It and MMA Speed it will last about 35 minutes.
- The workout has a modifier, so no matter where you are in your fitness journey, you can do this workout.
- If you need more time to warmup/cool down, I highly recommend you take it. A good warmup/cool down is extremely important if you want to prevent injury.
- The moves are NOT complicated at all. This particular workout contained combinations including: jabs, cross, hook, uppercut, knee strikes etc. It did NOT contain any crazy choreographed nonsense.
- The workout has music, but it’s not synchronized. Meaning you can move at your own speed and pace depending on your fitness level. This is a super cool concept.
- I used the Beachbody on Demand streaming service. Learn more about the streaming service here. Say goodbye to DVDs!
And that’s it! The workout is quick, fun, and effective! It’s 25 minutes, we can all make time to fit this into our busy day! I hope you enjoyed this Core de Force Review, and I hope you found it beneficial. I can’t wait to get started with my Challenge group.
