Certified instructor description:
An immense variety of techniques in two non-stop aero/tone interval workouts. These multi-muscle, multi-plane exercises are sure to keep you totally challenged. Each program includes two toning intervals, a cardio interval and an abs interval (e.g. toning, cardio, toning, abs). The first toning segment uses heavier weights, the second features lighter weights. That's followed by a tough sequence of exceptionally varied abdominal moves.
The cardio intervals feature fast-paced segments of progressively-more-intense moves. They often include higher-impact exercises like jacks, donkey kicks and "star jumps." Mike's cuing is clear but relentless ("keep going, no resting here!"). DVD has an on-screen countdown timer for each series. Requires two sets of dumbbells (e.g. 5 and 10 lb.). ©2011.
