Boosts your metabolism and helps burn more calories all day long! “Lift weights to lose weight? Lifting weights adds lean muscle to boost your metabolism and helps burn more calories all day long! In addition to toning and sculpting for a great looking body, using weights increases bone density helping to improve posture and prevent osteoporosis. With my TimeSaver approach, you can get all these benefits in a quick workout that’s fun and easy to do!” (Kathy Smith)

This program's separate upper and lower-body segments — plus Kathy's unique “dual track” format — lets you select the ideal body area and intensity level for you. You'll get a workout that exactly matches your goals — either light weights/many reps or heavy weights/few reps (e.g. the light weights group continues on while the more challenged, heavy weights exercisers are cued to stop and recover). Featuring proven body-sculpting favorites, you'll end the workout with tough ab work. Requires two sets of 3 to 10 lb. dumbbells; a weight bench and ankle weights are optional. Has a separate bonus abs/back workout. ©1998.
