Certified instructor description:
Straight-forward, ab-targeted workouts shown at three fitness levels (so you can advance with the DVD as you get stronger). They all feature easy-to-follow cuing with very detailed form and technique explanations. The first program emphasizes basic Pilates corework. The second series adds modifications and variations (e.g. classic crunches, diagonal movements and even a few upper-body routines). The third workout integrates standing exercises and optional dumbbell intensifiers. Each program is demonstrated at three levels. For example: beginner does the basics, begin/inter has arm motions, intermediate adds holds and pulses. Requires 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2013. Note: The cover says it has a 30-minute standing ab toner. That is not accurate; most of the 29-minute workout is floorwork (as correctly shown in our graph).
