Motivating boot-camp style in an easy-to-follow program. You'll feel the conditioning as you count the reps off with Ada. Alternating peak and recovery intervals, anyone can follow these super-simple moves (i.e. nothing more complicated than step-touch). Even the toning is basic: lunges, curls, push-ups. An interesting outdoor military base setting (e.g. parked helicopters). 1 to 5 lb. dumbbells suggested. ©1991.
