Certified instructor description:
Three lower-body-focused aero/tone interval workouts. Each one gets progressively more challenging so you can smoothly advance to the next level as you get stronger. The cardio segments are non-stop fat-burners; they include high-impact moves like "star jumps," "scissor lunges" and "power jacks." The toning segments are equally intense; they feature classic buns/thighs exercises like squats, hydrants and side lunges. All the workouts are short, but exceptionally varied -- you get 8 to 10 different exercises in each circuit (plus within-circuit level modifications and even some "bonus" balance moves). As always, Jillian's cuing is both clear and relentlessly motivating ("I want your quads to be burning!") Requires 5 to 10 lb. dumbbells. ©2011
