Certified instructor description:
Non-stop aero/tone intervals — no breaks, no slowing down, no easy exercises. Bob's encouragement is friendly but relentless: “let those arms burn!,” “knees as high as you can get!” The toning intervals intermix weight-room exercises with unique balance and stability routines (e.g. working just one side of the body so the other side has to compensate). You also get intensified versions of familiar classics (e.g. squats with a jump, knee-to-elbow push-ups). The cardio segments are equally tough — lots of high-impact jumps, squats and plyometrics. The DVD's second program is different; it's all glute-focused, standing moves. Both programs feature a stylish set and a unique split screen that shows some moves from two angles. Requires 3 to 10 lb. dumbbells. ©2010.
