Certified instructor description:
Each eight-minute segment focuses on a specific muscle group: abs, butt, legs, arms and total-body. The targeted sections are short but challenging — maximum effort for 30 seconds followed by 10 seconds of “rest” (before quickly advancing to the next 30/10 sequence). It's a time-efficient and super-motivating format because you always know there's a rest coming up. Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince use a variety of techniques to achieve the intensity. They include balance challenges, plank work, power moves, multi-muscle exercises and even some high-impact cardio elements (e.g. jumping jacks that tone your legs as they burn calories). All the exercisers are successful season 14 contestants. Requires two sets of dumbbells (e.g. 3 and 10 lb.). ©2013.
