Well-sequenced routines that uniquely combine resistance, control and position variations for maximum body-shaping. In just 30 minutes you'll get a thorough, total-body toning workout (you also get a little cardio benefit during some faster-paced sets). Each movement is designed to build on the previous one. E.g. you'll start with basic squats, add some overhead presses and then increase that combo's intensity by coming up from the squats as you do the overhead presses. Even the short ending stretch “active isolated flexibility” is innovative and fun. Sue Hitzman's careful cuing and attention to technique are superb. Requires 3 to 10 lb. dumbbells. ©1999.
