Challenging Workout from The Biggest Loser Show

"Jillian Michaels puts three contestants who lost weight on The Biggest Loser Show through the paces again. Here they demonstrate exercises in five circuit-style segments. The circuit-training workout is themed so you are working the muscles of the back, but you also do some abdominal exercises and you keep the heart rate up by doing cardiovascular exercises.
This is a challenging workout that might be enjoyed the most by intermediates but will give beginners some real challenges for abs, arms and muscles on the back of the body. Shane joins her on the first segment and she teaches how to adapt the exercises for low impact. 3-5lb weights are used and weights are also used during the lunges. For the second section, Kim joins Jillian and uses a step. The back exercises look pretty tricky, so you may want to do a pelvic lift from yoga or pilates instead of the more complex bridge when you first start this exercise routine.
In the third section, there is more of an emphasis on traditional weight lifting with dead lifts and then some fun speed skating moves. Jillian's edgy teaching style comes through as she playfully teases the contestants and gets them working out at a higher level with encouragement and motivational tips.
The fourth segment is especially interesting as you can learn to row at home by using an exercise band. The donkey kicks and bicep curls in the fifth segment alternate with more stepping. Variations are shown for the donkey kicks, using the exercise band. Then back to skating and more working on the abs and back for the sixth section.
Overall this is an excellent workout
with many challenges for beginners.

"Jullian does a great job showing you how to do the exercises, but I quickly out grew it. It's great for a beginner and who likes to take things slowly."
