A variety of familiar exercises in convenient seven-minute sections. The DVD can be programmed to play the segments in any order (so each workout can be precisely matched to your preferences and goals). Two of the segments are cardio. Level 1 is a basic low-impact fat-burner; level 2 adds higher-impact/higher-intensity jumps, kicks and dumbbell moves. You also get two choices of total-body toning. Level 1 uses your own body weight while level 2 incorporates faster-paced, weight-training exercises. The final three segments are body-part-targeted: upper, lower and abs/core. Denise's cuing carefully demos the techniques while also emphasizing the benefits (“great for sexy arms!”). Requires 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2012.
