Workouts in Review- Slim, Strong & Sexy Body

Slim, Strong & Sexy Body
This is the last of the Your Body Breakthru DVD's by Michelle Dozois.

What is it?

Slim, Strong & Sexy Body is two 30-minute workouts allow you to target upper body one day and lower body another, while simultaneously challenging your core with Pilates and ab exercises that are sprinkled throughout both workouts.

Who is it for?

Intermediate exercisers - get ready to sweat! Requires 3 to 10 lb. dumbbells and a resistance band which comes with the DVD.

What to expect:

Michelle Dozois has designed Slim, Strong & Sexy Body Sculpt to help reshape your entire body by mixing a blend of dumbbell exercises with resistance band exercises, and sometimes using dumbbells and the band together. Balance and coordination come into play too since some exercises are done while standing on one foot.The cueing is sometimes a little delayed but this is not a problem the more you do it.

This workout includes a big variety of advanced exercises with intermediate modifications. Multiple levels can benefit from this workout. Experienced exercisers who are comfortable with dumbbell strength training and basic squats, lunges should find the new twists on basic moves, the combination exercises, and learning how to use a resistance band fun and challenging. Advanced can lift as heavy as possible for strength gains or lift lighter for a maintenance day workout, while intermediates can always strive toward performing the hardest version of everything. Beginners to exercise should start elsewhere, since even some of the easy options still require good core strength, balance and coordination, and the volume of work could be overwhelming for someone just starting out. Don't underestimate your fitness level and try it!!
