Three progressively-more-challenging workouts that feature nearly identical exercises done at three distinct levels. As you get stronger, you’ll just advance to the next level (without the frustration of having to learn new moves). Introduced by Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen, the programs are designed to complement their best-selling “You on a Diet” book. The beginner workout features basic exercises along with lots of personal-trainer-style instruction. The second section has less cuing with faster, more powerful variations. The final advanced-level workout maximizes the intensity with pulses/holds, tougher positions and added movements. Led by Joel Harper. ©2006.
