A well-planned series of goal-specific segments: upper-body, lower-body, abs and cardio. You get lots of variety — each section features seven different exercises. And, you get lots of intensity — each exercise is repeated three times at a slightly higher level (with less cuing and faster music). No dumbbells required, the toning sections sculpt your body with proven classics like push-ups, squats and curls (including lots of exercises that target both large and small muscle groups). The cardio section's high-impact moves are easy-to-follow but tough. Mike Chang is a friendly, supportive instructor. He emphasizes safety and effectiveness while also offering intensity modifications. ©2013.
