Certified instructor description:
A super-challenging program that uses a step, a resistance band and heavy-weights. Cathe's careful sequencing and precise focus on technique absolutely assure a strong, shapely body (if you can keep up…). You'll target each muscle group with just 3 to 4 proven exercises. But Cathe also adjusts the tempo, body position and range-of-motion to add variety and effectiveness (e.g. just reverse your grip on the barbell to change the targeted muscles). It ends with the toughest corework ever -- ultra-intense versions of the classics like ab crunches, hip lifts and jack knifes. Requires a 6-foot resistance band, barbells, 8 to 20 lb. dumbbells and a step-bench. The DVD's “premix” feature lets you play selected sections (e.g. one “premix” only plays the lower-body routines). ©2005.
