Certified instructor description:
Three super-challenging workouts. Each one targets a specific body area with heavy weights and very slow, very conscious movements. By eliminating all momentum, this technique absolutely maximizes intensity… and results (it also requires a lot of mental focus). For even more effectiveness, Cathe also works opposing muscle groups with “semi-push-pull” sequencing (e.g. back “pull” muscles are paired with chest “push” muscles). You get three separate workouts: “Legs & Shoulders,” “Chest & Back” and “Triceps & Biceps.” Each program also has a Premix feature that lets you select a specific muscle group, or only a specific exercise routine (they're pre-programmed; you just select your choice from the menu). Requires a step, three sets of dumbbells and a barbell. ©2002. Not available in stores.
