Full Backcover Description

A total-body workout that alternates effective upper and lower body weight training exercises. Designed as a pair, Firm Strength and Firm Cardio cross train by varying the sequencing of exercises. Firm Strength shapes muscles by first working the upper body, then the entire lower body. Firm Cardio burns fat using PHA (Peripheral Heart Action) training to work the upper and lower body alternately. PHA sequencing also strengthens the heart by repeatedly making it pump blood back and forth between distant muscle groups. When used on alternate days, they sculpt your body by preventing muscles from adapting to predictable exercise sequences, and maximize aerobic endurance and fat burning. Each workout includes a tough abdominal section. When used individually, each program provides a complete total body workout.

Certified instructor description:

To maximize results, you'll intermix three workout formats: alternating aero/tone intervals, pure floor toning, and blended aero/tone segments (e.g. raising your heart rate with a fast-paced progression of upper-body dumbbell work and lower body squats). Includes a huge variety of toning moves, from push-ups and lunges to pulsed ab curls and tricep dips. The program emphasizes slow, deliberate moves (while still keeping your heart rate elevated). The aerobics are not-too-choreographed while the toning is intense with long body-sculpting intervals. The video features the Firm's usual superb photography and jazz-type soundtrack. Requires at least two sets of 3 to 15 lb. dumbbells and 1 to 5 lb. ankle weights. They use a 10-inch and a 14-inch step; a regular step will also work (the aerobics does not use the step; it's used for the toning). Barbells or a body bar are suggested. ©1995.

Remastered in 2014: The Classics FIRM Cross Trainers: FIRM Strength (Original 1995 Release) has a Menu for basic sections, and is fully chaptered, in a full-sized case.
