Certified instructor description:
Three fast-paced workouts that burn fat as they tone one specific body area: upper body, lower body or abs. Jillian's legendary motivation combined with kickboxing's powerful energy is both inspirational and effective. The aerobic intervals range from simple punches and kicks to vastly more intense combinations (e.g. "tuck jumps from a squat," "spinning roundhouse kicks"). But each workout is also precisely targeted — even the cardio segments focus on a single muscle group (e.g. varied kick sequences for the lower body workout). The short toning sections feature proven classics like push-ups, lunges and sit-ups. DVD includes a 14-minute kickbox tutorial. Requires 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2012.
