Certified instructor description:
A weight-room-style, dumbbell/barbell workout featuring high repetitions of compound exercises. By consistently working multiple muscle groups at once, you'll maximize your time efficiency while keeping your core engaged (either as a stabilizer or simply “linking” an upper and lower-body movement). Each carefully-designed segment begins with a technique demo plus a review of the weight levels used. Then it smoothly builds in intensity. For example, you'll start with squats, make them double-time, add the upright rows, pulse them to the music, travel a little… then on to the next segment (often targeting those same muscles in new ways). Requires a step, 3 to 20 lb. dumbbells and a barbell (one person uses only dumbbells). Powerful, “Body Pump-style” music. Also has a short interview with a sports physiologist. ©2006.
