DVD Review: “RUSHFIT” Home Fitness Program from Georges St-Pierre

Rushfit is a free online fitness program created by Georges St-Pierre. Rushfit was developed to provide individuals with a variety of different workouts that are easy to follow and require little or no equipment. The goal of the program is to increase strength, endurance, flexibility, speed and agility while burning fat at the same time. The program includes 3 workouts per day which consist of 5 exercises each workout lasting 30 minutes (5 sets). Each exercise consists of 2 parts. Part 1 involves performing the movement slowly and smoothly while part 2 requires great intensity followed by slow recovery.

The first 4 weeks of the program include 10 exercises total. The next 6 weeks include 9 exercises total.

After 12 weeks there are only 7 exercises left to complete the routine. The final two months consist of just one exercise, but it’s a very difficult one!

Georges St-Pierre has stated that the program will last approximately 8 weeks. That means that after completing the first four weeks, you’ll have completed your workout routine and then you’ll need to do another 4 weeks of training before finishing up the rest of the routines.

If you’re going to use this program, make sure you stick with it because it’s not like there isn’t a ton of material here!

The exercises:

Jumping Jacks: This exercise helps to get your blood pumping and your heart rate up. It’s a simple movement, but it still has a great effect on your body.

It helps to warm up your muscles and get them ready for the more strenuous movements that are to come.

Push-Ups: This exercise is great for working out the upper body. You’ll start by placing your hands on the ground while keeping your legs together.

From there you’ll lower your body to the ground by bending your elbows until they’re aligned with your shoulders. Then, you’ll raise your body back up to the starting position by extending your arms.

Sit-Ups: This exercise is great for working out and toning your abdominal muscles. The basic idea is to lie down on the ground or sit on the floor with your legs out in front of you, hands behind your head and your back straight.

DVD Review:

Then you’ll flex and curl your upper body forward until it touches your legs while making sure to keep your elbows close to your body. Then, you’ll extend your arms back until you’re back in the starting position.

Squats: This exercise is one of the best exercises for working out and toning your leg muscles. To do it, you start by standing with your feet shoulder width apart and your back straight.

Then, you lower your body by bending your knees and making sure to go all the way down and come back up.

Lunges: This exercise is great for working out and toning the muscles in your legs, especially in your thighs. The basic idea is to take a large step forward with one leg while bending both of your knees and lowering your rear end towards the ground.

Keep your back leg straight and don’t allow it to bend. Once your front knee goes over your toes, push yourself back to the starting position and repeat this with the other leg.

Pull-Ups: This exercise is one of the best for working out and toning your back and arms. The basic idea is to grab a hold of a bar so that your arms are fully extended and your chin is slightly above the bar.

Then, you’ll pull yourself up until your chin goes over the bar. From there, you lower yourself back down until your arms are fully extended and repeat.

Bicycle Crunches: This exercise is great for working out and toning your abdominal muscles. The basic idea is to lay down on your back with your legs in the air and your hands behind your head.

Then, you’ll bring your right knee into your chest while using your elbow to touch it. Then, you’ll bring your left knee into your chest while using your other elbow to touch it. Then repeat with the opposite sides.

Running: This is a great exercise for working out and toning most of your muscles. It also helps to keep a healthy heart and helps to improve your endurance and strength overall.

It’s pretty intuitive, but you can do it in a variety of ways.

DVD Review:

You can do it for time, for distance, for speed or a combination of them all. It depends on what you’re going for.

For this, you’ll be doing it for time.
