Certified instructor description:
Six ab-toning segments, each one is led by a different instructor using a different technique. The varied instructors keep you motivated while the diverse techniques challenge your core in diverse ways. The moves include both standing and floor exercises. They range from traditional curls, crunches and planks to Pilates-based moves and even a sexy dancers' abs section (lots of shakes, shimmies and hip rolls). The final segment is all cardio; it's designed to burn the fat beneath your midsection muscles. Like all the "10 Minute" videos, you can program the DVD to play any section in any order. One segment uses a single 2 to 5 lb. dumbbell.
Includes a 16-page meal plan booklet. ©2011. Re-edited from videos originally released in 2006-2010.
