Full Backcover Description
It will provide you with a very intense and thorough workout. You will start your chest workout with drop sets of push-ups to get a total pump in your chest. There will be a slight rest between every set of push-ups. After that, you will go on to standard — yet tried and true — exercises with a heavy weight and a controlled rep speed (with moderate rests between sets). Your chest and triceps are sure to be pumped by the end of the workout. Do this workout one or two times per week and in conjunction with our other Gym Style workouts.
DVD has chapters and premixed alternate workouts.

Certified instructor description:
An ultra-challenging, truly “gym style” workout. This program very carefully targets your chest and triceps with a huge variety of exercises — from push-ups and dumbbell flies to tricep extensions and barbell presses (and, if that's not tough enough, she also includes some extra-intense “bonus burn” segments). Cathe's clear cuing is “gym style” too — she's there to instruct and motivate you, not to cut you any slack (e.g. after a series of 72 straight-leg push-ups, she mentions that “this will prime your muscles for further exercise!”). Requires barbells, a stability ball, a 6-foot Dyna-Band, several sets of dumbbells and a step (usually used as a weight bench). The DVD “premix” feature lets you play shorter “timesaver” versions of the full workout. ©2005.
