Exquisitely-cued by an IDEA Instructor of the Year, it alternates not-too-dancy cardio intervals with tough toning segments. You're sure to be energized by Karen's smooth transitions, award-winning form and uniquely graceful style (somehow she even makes sweating seem elegant). The 7 to 9-minute aerobic sections get progressively more intense from Charlestons and V-steps to jacks and power leaps (often intensified with large limb movements and complementary arm combos). The shorter toning intervals work multiple muscle groups with exercises expressly chosen to not overtrain any one area. The ending floorwork tones your butt and legs along with a special emphasis on your deepest ab muscles. Requires 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2001. Previously titled Cardio Strength.
