You get completely different exercises in each of the five body-part-focused segments: back, arms, belly, thighs and butt. Every move in every section is precisely targeted on a specific goal (e.g. back: Denise keeps your back fully engaged, even during the “cardio” intervals). The arms segment also has a similar aero/tone format (burning fat and sculpting your body with dumbbells). The last three sections are pure toning. Both “belly” and “thigh” feature an effective mix of traditional standing and floor exercises. The “butt” segment is a little more intense; it includes small plyometric jumps. Denise makes the entire program easy-to-follow with cue-ahead instruction and lots of hands-on coaching. Requires 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2012.
