Certified instructor description:
A resistance band toning workout that includes three very short cardio intervals. It maximizes the body-sculpting with compound exercises, static holds and creative sequencing (e.g. a split lunge that transitions into an overhead press is sure to keeps your entire body engaged). For optimum results, each band movement is designed to minimize momentum while working your body in both the “in” and “out” phases. Cathe further challenges your muscles by varying the tempo, range of motion and band positioning. The ending floorwork also uses the band for most routines; it includes favorites like planks, pushups and rows. Superb cuing/form. Only requires a 6-foot resistance band (for easy traveling!). ©2009.
