Certified instructor description:
Joyce Vedral’s Slow Duet: Slow Moves for a Fast Shape-up is a very different DVD workout. You do a slow set alternating a rep for one body part with a rep for another body part until you have completed ten reps each. You move very slowly to the count up and count down. Then you do the next exercise combination until you have finished your routine for that day.
Because the workout is so intense, you need do only one set per exercise: time under tension is the key. Because you are moving slowly, you are spending the same amount of time (or more) than you would have spent had you done lots of sets and reps moving fast.
This is an excellent workout to contrast to the faster moving ones because it gives your body the variety it needs to get passed sticking points or plateaus.
Requires one set of light dumbbells.
