A well-cued program that features ten-minute circuits of progressively-intensifying cardio. This aerobic/anaerobic technique maximizes fat-burning without overstressing your body. Each circuit begins with simple “base” movements. That's followed by “ascent” — faster-paced, usually kickbox-style exercises. The “climb” intervals feature higher-tempo music and more challenging hi/low athletic drills. Finally, it's “peak” — 30 seconds of super-intense, very high-impact plyometrics (e.g. “atomic lunges,” “frog bounces” and extreme jumps). Then, it's back to “base” for a different series of similarly varying combos. An on-screen timer keeps you motivated. ©2010.
