Basic Step This Cathe Friedrich step aerobics workout DVD was designed to help the beginner exerciser that is new to Cathe and to step aerobics. Basic Step is a 35-minute basic step routine that will hold the interest and truly challenge the beginner stepper for many workouts to come. While creating this workout, Cathe made sure that basic steps were introduced, taught, and put into combinations in a way that made the beginner have to focus and think, but not overwhelm them. Unlike teaching a live beginner class where each and every workout can change to provide a further challenge to the participant, an aerobic step DVD workout does not have that flexibility. For this reason, Cathe has chosen to teach the moves but not over teach them, thereby giving the beginner stepper a new challenge to work towards every time they do the workout. Body Fusion Cathe Friedrich’s Body Fusion cardio step DVD is approximately a 50-minute workout. After the warm-up, you will go into your first step aerobic segment which features moves from videos past taught with a longer breakdown and more repetition than the other two upcoming step combos since you are just freshly out of the warm-up. This segment is about 10 minutes long. Now your first weight segment you’ll do squats with overhead presses and lunges with side and front lateral raises for approximately 5 minutes (light breaks in between). Step combo two is a little more complex than one but still on the level of intermediate. It again is about 10 minutes long and features moves from other videos. Weight segment two features lunges off the back of the step and then later bicep curls standing on the floor. The biceps curls end with a little balance option of doing them while standing on one leg. Step Combo #3, totaling about 8 minutes, is the same level of complexity as two but has more intensity added. Weight segment three includes deadrows and deadlifts and then moves onto dips and push-ups before completing with a stretch.
