Jeanette Jenkins' Bikini Boot Camp (2010)
A straight-forward, athletic-style workout by a no-nonsense instructor. You’ll burn calories and sculpt your muscles with separate cardio and toning “circuits” (a proven format that repeats a series of well-planned exercises). The cardio portion uses familiar fat-blasters like jumping jacks, jump rope, “fast feet” and kickboxing. The toning includes an upper/lower-body standing section plus an abs floorwork segment. All the exercises feature multiple angles and planes; they range from compound-muscle/weight-room classics to yoga-based moves. Throughout, Jeanette keeps the focus on technique and effectiveness. Requires two sets of dumbbells (e.g. 3 and 5 lb.).
