Tae Bo Cardio Circuit 1

Intermediate: Active in sports, dance or any regular exercise (2 to 3 times per week).
Advanced: Very active in sports or consistently work out four or more times per week.
Aerobics Impact: Lower
Lower Impact: Both feet never leave the ground at the same time. This minimizes stress on your knees.

Classic Tae Bo kickboxing that features true aerobic-and-toning intervals. It’s short segments of fast-paced cardio alternated with slower-paced toning segments (always at a tempo that keeps your heart rate elevated). It all ends with a fast-paced total-body circuit that’s sure to burn mega-calories. In addition to the cardio portions, you also get body-part-specific toning — upper body, lower body and abs (e.g. jabs and punches for your arms and back, squats and kicks for your buttocks and legs). Billy Blank’s enthusiasm is sky high and his cuing is exceptionally detailed, with a more-than-usual focus on correct form. Weighted balls or 1 to 2 lb. dumbbells are optional. ©2004.
