Full Backcover Description
This total-body strength workout focuses on exhausting all the major muscle groups through the use of weighted trisets. A mixture of compound and isolation exercises is uniquely grouped to set your muscles on fire.
TotalBody Trisets is one of the most versatile strength training workouts we have ever released. The main program features upper body and lower body split routines that you should do once or twice per week. You can also train by body part if you prefer, such as lower body, chest/shoulders/triceps or back/biceps/core. Prefer to train your entire body on the same day? No problem! You can select from two total-body premixes.< /p>
you can expect to work at 60 to 80 percent of your one rep max range – you will hug and puff while shaving your body fat down!

Separate lower and upper-body workouts that both use "trisets" — a proven technique that works each body part with a progression of three distinct exercises (e.g. legs: wall squats, front lunges and side squats). The upper-body program even adds a unique variation. It sequentially targets three related muscle groups (e.g. one exercise each for chest, shoulders and triceps). Cathe also boosts the challenge — and effectiveness — by repeating each three-exercise series at a higher intensity level (e.g. using heavier weights).
Note: While the workouts are body-part-targeted, the DVD's extensive premix selection includes lots of pre-programmed, upper/lower options.
Requires 3 to 15 lb. dumbbells, a stability ball and a high step (a regular step will work). ©2011.
