High Step Training ....This 60 minute advanced total body conditioning circuit will provide the ultimate overall fitness challenge. You will only need a light and heavy set of hand weights as well as a fixed weighted barbell. We used 5 pound and 10 pound hand weights and a 30 pound barbell.

DETAILS:
After a 5 minute warm up you will start the first of five fitness cycles.

Cycle One: CARDIO: All the cardio step blasts are done on an eight inch step height. This one will consist of power 15's as well as fast feet agility-type footwork. A brief cool down period will follow. LEG PRESS: The music is slowed down considerably and you will take one 10 pound hand weight and do one set of leg presses (15 per side). Then you will immediately get your pre-made barbell and do one minute of squats. Now the music resumes its normal tempo and we do tricep exercises. Tricep push ups on the high step. Tricep overhead extensions while doing static lunges (one 10 pound in hand). One arm dips on the high step (overhead extension shown as option). Kickbacks (with 5 pound weights).

Cycle Two: CARDIO: A combination consisting of spike lunges, slam its and jump freezes. LEG PRESS: Same as above. Then you immediately go into one minute of Plie Squats with pre-made barbell. SHOULDERS: Overhead press with pre-made barbell. One arm side lateral raise inclined next to High Step(5 pounds). Decline push ups. Rear delt flys(5 pounds)

Cycle Three: CARDIO: A combination of wide steps (like a v-step), power jumps, and plyo jacks. Three levels of intensity are offered. We do all three. LEG PRESS: Same as above. Then immediately get a 10 pound hand weight and do hover squats. BICEPS: Pre-made barbell bicep curls going up 2 counts down 6 counts for a minute. Hammer curls with back lunges (10 pounds). Barbell curls again but this time up 6 counts and down 2 counts for a minute. Standing Hammer curls or one final round with barbell (your choice)

Cycle Four: CARDIO: A combination from Step Fit (2 knee repeater with power scissors). LEG PRESS: Same as above but we do two sets back to back this time. BACK: Barbell back rows, 2 long sets. Barbell deadlifts. Wide grip back rows (10 pounds in each hand)

Cycle Five: CARDIO: A combination of knee straddles and tap straddles (think Imax2). LEG PRESS: Same as above for one set and then immediately get barbell and do Sit N Stands for one minute. CHEST: Standard push ups. Chest flys with 10 pounds in each hand on floor while one foot is propped up on step doing hamstring and glute tucks. Switch legs repeat chest flys too. Cross Over Push Ups walking side to side across high step with hands. Stretch By the way, since the core was incorporated into many of the exercises as stabilizers, we did not have a separate core segment. Bring it on! \

Wow! Leg Presses Really Work! October 27, 2007
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from MD United States  
I did this workout for the first time the other day. Even though the cardio portions were short, I was huffing and puffing. I love circuit workouts, as time flies for me as we keep moving to the next exercise. I didn't mind the leg presses at all and used a dyna band under the step rather than a weight (Cathe used a dyna band in High Step Challenge. Holding tight to the dyna band, you can really feel the leg presses working). The next day my hamstrings and glutes were so sore. I loved this workout and felt like my whole body was worked very hard. Thanks, Cathe!

not a favorite October 13, 2007
Reviewer: a Cathe fan from USA  
I love Cathe's workouts and own about 20 of them.  This one, though, is just not one I like.  Too many leg presses.  That gets dull after the 3rd set and worse, if you have knee issues like I do, it is just too much.  If you have knee problems, I would not recommend this one.

What a gem! August 1, 2007
Reviewer: papaya from Boston  
What a gem this workout is.  I forgot how awesome it is.  It works you out real good, the cardio parts get your heart rate up there but you don't feel completely wiped out at the end, you are done in 60 minutes and will be a sweaty mess and feel great.  Also, if you love tall box climbs, you will get PLENTY!!

High Step Training April 12, 2007
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Mapleton, ND United States  
This is an intense and effective workout. You want results and aren't afraid of a little hard work? This is the workout. I wouldn't recommend it for a beginner.

NICE SWITCH July 22, 2006
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Houma, LA United States  
I love this DVD. I usually shy away from circuit training, but once I purchased this workout and used it, I was HOOKED! I love to sweat & burn, and with this one I did both. Each time I use it, I am challenged.
