Each segment features a distinct type of high-intensity interval training. HIIT is a proven technique that optimizes results by pushing you to the max for 20 seconds, then allowing 10 seconds of "rest" (Tabata style). In addition to the intensity, you get lots of variety. Each section includes eight different exercises — you'll do each "work/rest" cycle two times, then move on to the next exercise. Some segments are pure fat-burning aerobics while others have a targeted body-sculpting element (e.g. lower body "burpees" or upper-body mountain climbers). The final section is fast-paced abdominal toning. All the exercises are straight-forward and easy-to-follow (but often high-impact). Like all the "10 Minute Solution" DVDs, it can be programmed to play any segment in any order. ©2013.
