Certified instructor description:
A no-nonsense aero/tone interval workout that features "all star" contestants from season 14. Just like on the TV show, Bob and Dolvett are both encouraging and intense (they really want you to succeed). The first segment is an easy-to-follow mix of classic toning, medium-intensity aerobics and basic balance moves. The second section alternates 90-second "work" intervals with 30-second "rest" sequences. Some intervals get maximum fat-burning with high-impact, weight-intensified cardio. The last segment is the shortest and the toughest. It's a non-stop series of multi-speed progressions (e.g. a fast lunge followed by an even faster lunge that ends with a scissors jump). Requires 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells; a medicine ball is optional. ©2013.
