You’ll feel sexy and strong after finishing this maximum calorie burning workout series. Cindy Whitmarsh will show you how to fulfill the fitness needs of specific muscle groups by strengthening, lengthening and tightening your booty, core and upper body.
Has three upper body/abs programs in addition to the three lower-body workouts (so it's more than just "butt toning"). The three workout "sets" build in intensity — you'll start with the introductory series and advance to the more challenging pair. The moves are mostly straight-forward classics, from squats, leg lifts and lunges to push-ups, dumbbell rows and abdominal crunches. While many exercises are repeated throughout the levels, you also get tougher variations in the later sets (e.g. one-legged squats or narrow-hand-position push-ups). Pauline Nordin is not your standard instructor. Her cuing is minimal and her chatty commentary is "bad ass" motivational ("Nobody loves this move. Why? Because it hurts!"). Requires 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells; a body bar is also used in one inter/advan workout.
