Certified instructor description:
You get twelve short abdominal toning segments. Working from every possible angle and every possible position, you'll firm your abs with a huge variety of styles and techniques (from “old school” crunches and reverse curls to trendier Pilates-inspired planks and “supermans”). Each segment is 6 to 12 minutes long. The DVD has lots of versatility — you can do an entire 57-minute killer sequence or just individual segments. It also includes two-segment “pre-mix” workouts (11 to 16 minutes long, they work complementary muscles). As usual, Cathe's cuing and instruction is superb. Note: segments are re-edited from a variety of previously-released videos. ©2003.
