Shrink Your Female Fat Zone

Denise Austin
Year Released: 2003

Categories: Balance/Medicine/Mini/Stability Ball, Total Body Workouts

The DVD has 2-20 minute workouts, hitting about all muscle groups. The 1st workout is done with dumbbells. Denise doesn't spend all that much time on each part, but her lifting speed is generally slow, so you can go heavy if you choose. She alternates upper, lower and abs, and the workout goes quickly because of the variety. The 2nd workout is on the stability ball, and also works all the muscle groups. So if you do both workouts, you can get a solid intermediate workout. The ball workout was fun, and also went by quickly.
I think Denise is a little more serious in this workout. I had traded it away about a year ago, because I thought it was too easy (I hadn't done the stability ball workout back then.) If you are looking for a light day, I would recommend doing 1-20 minute segment. There is no dread factor, and you don't need much equipment - only dumbbells and a stability ball. I expect to get a lot of use out of it, on days I am time-crunched.

Instructor Comments:
Denise looks great and is a little quieter in this workout than in previous ones. She still chats a lot, but always encourging and gives form pointers. J
