Certified instructor description:
Each segment targets a specific muscle group with a diverse series of “drop set” exercises. You'll start with heavy weights/few reps and end with light weights/more reps. It's a challenging technique that maximizes results by carefully sequencing the intensity. Amy makes it interesting by varying the positions and movements between each drop (e.g. straight arms for the heaviest dumbbells, overhead arms for the lightest). She also incorporates multi-muscle exercises and non-weight routines like push-ups (as always, in drop-sets — starting on your toes and finishing on your knees). The program ends with a well-deserved stretch. Ideally uses three sets of dumbbells (e.g. 5, 10 and 20 lb.), but two sets will also work. A stability ball is used during the stretch. ©2012.
