30 Minutes to Fitness – L.I.F.T – Olympic Lifting w/ Kelly Coffey-Meyer

This is a review of Workout One from the L.I.F.T. workout DVD in the 30 Minutes to Fitness series from Kelly Coffey Meyer.

Equipment needed:  Barbell or heavy dumbbells (use lighter for the warmup)

If you are looking for something different in your workouts or if you have been curious about Olympic lifting moves then this is the workout for you.  Kelly explains proper form and uses a progression of movements to take you through to the Olympic lifts.

Kelly and one background woman use a barbell for their lifts but there is a modifier that uses dumbbells.  Kelly explains that you should learn proper form with a lighter weight first before you go up in the amount of weight you use.  Kelly breaks between each 8 count segment and she explains that if you don’t need those break times then you aren’t using heavy enough weight.

Kelly cues you through the movements and tells you what body parts you are working.  In a lot of the lifts you will be working your core, especially when you lift the weight above your head.  You will work your shoulder stability and glutes the most in this workout.

As Kelly mentions during this workout it sure feels empowering to be doing lifts such as these.  You will feel STRONG!!!

There is an option on the DVD that allows you a quick workout of the lifts only without the progressive movements that tie each Olympic movement together.

This DVD also has another 30 minute workout called Powersculpting.  It is a lighter weight/higher repetition workout that focuses on muscle definition.  You will only need dumbbells for this workout. This workout is enjoyable too but my favorite out of both is the Olympic lifts.  I love Kelly Coffey-Meyer.  I can’t wait to try some of the new workouts she just released.
