Certified instructor description:
An exceptionally varied — and effective — mix of ab-focused exercises. Sure, there are crunches and Pilates. But you also get entire segments of yoga-inspired abwork and standing rotational moves (exercises that target your obliques, the muscles that “cinch” your waistline). Even “standard” routines get a variety boost with intensity progressions and body-position options. In addition to the ab toning, the workout includes an all-cardio section designed to burn the fat beneath your abs. Jessica Smith's one-on-one cuing is friendly and very detailed. Like all the “10 Minute” programs, you can customize the DVD to play any segment in any order. ©2008.
