I’m always quite a fan of the AAA workouts. They really zone in on the body parts I care the most about while also giving a good allover workout and getting the heart rate up. They also make great use of the full range of weights, bands, and sliders. This instalment was no different.
The Phase 2 version was insanely complicated, with tons of moves packed in. Here, the structure is back to the way it was in Phase 1 (albeit with more challenging exercises), which I prefer. 2 “arm” moves (which are really general upper body – they involve shoulders, back, chest etc, rather than just the triceps and biceps you’d usually associate with an arm workout), 1 abs move, and 1 booty move (which in many cases also gets the legs).
As before, the focus is on working the negative: so you get into the move for a single count, then come out of it for three counts, which really ups the agony – and presumably, the effectiveness! In Phase 3, the one difference is on the booty moves, where instead, you get into a move (for example, a side lunge, complete with both bands and weights) and hold it for a count of three. Ouch!
